I ordered the parts for the repairman. He said he couldn't get them from his warehouse. I talked with Steve for quite some time, going through schematics, being sure we had the right parts. I LOVED the experience. I came away feeling knowledgeable and empowered. When I got the parts very promptly, the repairman told me he's going to start using you too!!! It was a tremendous experience.

A crack in the porcelain caused the spark to not go in the proper direction, therefore the burner would not ignite. To have the job done by a professional would have cost $200.00 plus parts. Remove two phillips screws lift the burner out then remove the one phillips screw that held the electrode. Then with the new electrode in place reverse the previous steps.

igniter would spark, but not light flame

Installed new igniter, but would still not light flame. Determined it was a design flaw. On our range, the 2 right hand burners have "lift-off tops" that are farther away vertically from the igniter than the smaller left hand burners. I placed asmall nut from a nut-bolt assembly on top of the igniter, and now the igniter sparks higher to the "lift-off top" and the flame ignites everytime. Without that added heigt, the igniter just sparks uselessly around the base of the burner. There should be a higher igniter designed for the higher distance between the igniter and that removable top. Good luck with your own modification.

Spark Ignitor replacement

  • Customer: grant from aurora CO
  • Difficulty: Difficult
  • Time to Complete: 1- 2 hours

Screws holding burner base and ignitor were plain steel. If they had been stainless they probably would not have rusted in so tight. One in the base broke off, and the one holding the ignitor could not be removed, even with heat from a torch. I ended drilling it out and re-tapping the hole. If I wasn't mechanically inclined I would have had to give up and order a new burner base.

Electrode ceramic was chipped. Spark was not coming to the top of the electrode, and stove would not light. Remove two burner screws. These are "baked" on...so use some liquid wrench first if you have it. Don't strip the head, or you'll have a mess. Remove burner, unplug electrode, remove electrode screw, replace electrode. Reverse process and you're good to go!
