The spark was no longer igniting the burner

  • Customer: Stanley from St. Louis MO
  • Difficulty: Difficult
  • Time to Complete: 1- 2 hours
  • Tools Required: Pliers, Screw drivers, Wrench set

The earlier reviews said very easy and 15 minutes for beginners. They were right on, except I could not get the old screw out no matter what I tried. I eventually had to drill it out and put in a self tapping new screw. This was a first for me. Then it took 15 minutes or less and works fine again. Hopefully next time someone will tell me how to get that old screw out faster.

cracked ignitors (2)

No problem removing the burners. Removing the old initors was a different story. The tiny screws that hold the ignitor in place were baked in and could not be removed with a screw driver. I drilled them and tried to use an easy out to no avail. The screws are very short so I had to use care not to drill thru the burner. Both screw heads did snap off. I resorted to a hi temp epoxy to secure the ignitor flanges to the burner and now the all burners ignite as designed.

I am writing this post to hopefully save someone else the frustration and confusion I experienced when I ordered a replacement ignition module for an Amana gas cooktop AKGD3060WW. Over time, three of the four burner would not light. I ordered a replacement spark module from PartSelect and to my surprise it arrived the next day.

The installation instructions were very confusing. I read the instructions posted by prior customers about this part and none of them helped or seemed to apply to the same cooktop. With the use of the exploded view on PartSelect website I was able to figure out where the module was located.

I turned off the gas and unplugged the unit.

I had to go under the cabinet and securely prop up the cooktop cavity box from below as I had to take off the whole cover, which was actually holding, or mounting, the unit to the counter top.

I removed the cooking units then, the control knobs and the glass control plate, and the vent filter and vent cover. After removing about 20 screws from the main frame/cover I located the spark module at the rear of the unit, sandwiched between two pieces of sheet metal and obstructed by numerous wires. I recorded the wire connections then unplugged the module. It was difficult to remove module due to the numerous unrelated wires that were routed through that area.

I connected the wires to the new module (NOTE: The replacement module has no terminal identification.), plugged the cooktop into the power and tested it and noted that all four burners now received a strong spark.

The original unit is smaller than the replacement unit and the supplied bracket does not fit this cooktop. I had to force the module into position. I removed the two small tabs and applied double sided tape applied to the bottom then secured it against the original mounting bracket. I then adjusted the wires back into the recess with the module and reassembled the cooktop.

The cooktop now lights all four burners instantly, for the first time in several years.

This Amana gas stove is believed to have been manufactured in 1996 or thereabouts. The burners stopped self-igniting one at a time about 1.5 years ago. Since then we have lit the burners with a gas grill lighter.

Using a meter, we determined each of the four igniters had continuity from end to end and also had continuity from the end of each igniter back to the spark module. At that point we decided the module was probably bad and, after reviewing some similar-sounding problems on this website, I ordered the module. Installation was simple and solved the problem. All four burners now ignite as they should. One caution - the installation instructions that came with the new module did not describe anything like my stove.

The right front burner quit lighting, the igniter was weak.

Took off the burner by unscrewing the two screws and lifting out the burner/igniter together being careful to not let the electrical connection come apart. If it does then you have to take all 4 burners off so you can lift the whole oven/burner top. Disconnect the old igniter by (more than likely) drilling out the old screw, if you are lucky maybe the old screw holding the igiter will actually unscrew. If not, you can put a new screw in to hold the new igniter, put it all back together and youre done.

Remove two phillips screws, lift the burner head up and remove the wire from the electrode. DO NOT DROP THE WIRE!!! It will fall into the stove top, adding much more time and frustration to this very simple repair. Reverse these steps to complete the repair.

I want to praise your customer service. The first parts I received were incorrect by no fault of Parts Select. I called customer service and the assistance I received from "tamarad" was outstanding. She listened to my description of the issue and together figured out the parts originally sent were packaged incorrectly and she walked me through the reordering and in a few days I had the right parts delivered. I wish all customer service experiences were this enjoyable. I will definately use this organization again.

Igniter had died on a burner

The burner has two screws holding it in place. I remover those and lifted the burner up. I then disconnected the wire attached to the igniter that was on the old burner and attached it to the igniter that was pre-installed on the new burner. I then placed the burner back into position and reinstalled the two screws. The reason that I bought the burner assembly is that I was unable to unscrew the screw underneath that held the igniter in place on the old burner.
