91 honda civic has no spark changed coil still dont start


The ignitor is the brain that fires the coil. The distributor sends a signal to the ignitor, so if you have power to the coil either component could be defective.
You may need a shop manual to get the testing procedures for the ignitor.

Viking model VGR48 stovetop burners will not ignite?


First shut off the gas supply & disconnect electrical power to the range.
  • Remove all the burner control knobs, grates, burner caps & trim rings.
  • Remove the 2 screws securing the manifold panel, one from each corner. The panel will drop down.
  • Remove the screws from each manifold pipe mounting bracket. Remove 1/4 inch hex head bolt from the center of the manifold pipe. Push supply tube back to release from manifold pipe. Lift the cooktop assembly at the front to clear the 1/2 inch locator pins attached to the top of the bodyside.
  • Place cardboard between each side of cooktop & bodyside to prevent damage.
  • Move the cooktop to one side, being careful not to put stress on the wiring harness on left side.
  • Remove the wire from the electrode.
  • Remove the screw from the electrode mounting bracket to release the electrode.
You can replace the electrode & reassemble following instructions in reverse order.

How to replace electric ignitor for outdoor grill?


it may be that the electricity or the spark is connection to different point of the grill, the electricity will spark to the closest point of conductivity.
if you check and each ignitor is sparking , strongly ( so no problem with spark modual), then there may be points in the wireing whichis exposed or more likely where the wireing and the ignitore connects,
you can tape it with electrical tape, then it should see the spark to the burner. if it is sparking, and not to the burner, just means it is sparking to a different point, where the jump is shortest.

This is aCG4TDBN (elite with no back burner) aprox 6 years old. The ignitors are starting to go bad. How do I replace them?


First, you need to determine if it is the spark ignitors going bad or the Ignition Module.
If the spark ignitor tips are covered with grease or residue, this will give them the appearance that they're failing. Cotton balls and alcohol, work well to clean the spark ignitors. Also, check the wiring from the spark ignitors back to the ignition module. There may be some wear or even a burn on the wiring. Change the battery in the ignition module. Be sure the new battery is facing the same direction as the old battery, when you install it. Before installing the new battery, check the battery holder for corrosion on the contacts. If you see any, use a Q-Tip and WD40 to remove it.

As far as replacing the ignitors is concerned, you may only have to replace the spark ignitors and not all the wiring. It depends on how the wire is attached to the spark ignitor. If it can be carefully pulled of the bottom tip of the ignitor and then si back on, all you need is the spark ignitor. If not, you'll need the spark ignitor with the wiring attached. All of the wiring, will then have to be fished back to the ignitor module.

More more info on all the parts you may need contact BBQ's Galore 800-752-3085.

I hope this helped you to troubleshoot and determine if any parts do need replacing.

Igniter doesn't spark on only one burner


There are three parts to the ignition system typically.

The ignitor that is either in the burner or outside the burner.

The spark ignitor switch that is located on the burner control. (( one for each control ))

The spark modual. the modual creates the hi-voltage spark.

If the burner that does not ignight with its control does not spark but does spark with one of the other controls then the spark ignitor control switch is bad.
You can test it with one of the other burner control knobs. (( just try a working burnder and when it clicks look at the bad burners ignitor and look for the spark.))

If the bad burner that wont ignight does not spark then either your modual is bas or the ignitor is shorting out.

If you see any little spark but it does not spark from point A to Point B like the other burners then your ignitor is shorting and should be replaced.

If your ignitor is ceramic and it is cracked, then it should be replaced.

The oven won't ignite. I have had igniter replaced 4 times...why do we continue to get this proble


The model number you provied has a missing number at the end so I am using GS56LXSS0 for this example. This unit is using a spark ignitor instead of a Glow Ignitor.

This system also uses a Spark Modual control board to provide the spark to the spark ignitor. The spark modual is a common part that goes bad and could be your problem and is located in the control area part # 9758080

Note : All the spark Ignitors on your Stove are connected to this spark modual and if any of them are shorting anyware this will cause a problem with the spark modual and the amount of spark given to each spark ignitor.

Is there a heating elemant in a gas dryer and if so how do I find it


Hi. The answer to your question is no. A gas dryer dose not use a heating element, for drying. It will use a burner assembly to create the necessary heat for drying the contents.


NOTE_ There is an ignitor. This device is the only component that can be considered an element, but it is strictly used for starting the flame. It is not used for heating purposes. If this is what you are referring to, simply follow the procedure below to inspect this device for faults.

The easiest way to check the ignitor is to observe it. Remove the small access panel in front, select a high temperature setting and start the dryer. Watch the burner assembly, shortly after starting the unit the ignitor should begin to glow or spark. If you see it glow or spark, then the ignitor is working. If the ignitor did not appear to function and it is the spark type, it may be out of adjustment which generally requires professional service or it may require replacement. If the ignitor is the glow type, you can test it for resistance with a multimeter.


The ignitor has two wires connected to it.Label the wires and connections so that you can properly reconnect them later. The wires are connected with slip on connectors. Firmly pull the connectors off of the terminals (do not pull on the wire itself). You may need to use a pair of needle-nose pliers to remove the connectors. Inspect the connectors and the terminals for corrosion. If either is corroded they should be cleaned or replaced.

Set the multimeter to the ohms setting X1. Touch one probe to each terminal. You should get a reading anywhere between 50 and 600 ohms. If you get a reading of zero or infinity, the ignitor is definitely bad and will need to be replaced.

Spark ignitors on gas stovetop wont stop sparking


Make sure yo haven't spilled liquid on the ignitor becuase this will cuase all ignitors to spark constantly. If all is dry, the spark module must be replaced.
