The trickiest part was locating the elusive spark module. I am not certain I took the best route, but not considering all the wrong routes in trial and error, it was the most expedient. Certainly there must have been a single something to remove to get to this frequently faulted part..

Anyhow, thanks to the great part, the stove works really well again.

I just placed the knob on the burner control and pushed it in place. It was a really easy process. And thanks to you it was much cheaper ordering the part and putting it together myself than calling the repairman to order it, waiting for the part to come in and then making a service call to install it.

Replacement of a Dead Spark Module

The spark module pulses a stepped up voltage to all four burner sparks at the same time regardless of which burner you want to ignite. I read that this part lasts about 10 years. I don't cook much and it lasted 13 years. On my Magic Chef the part is behind the right side wall panel. Lift the range top,remove all the screws that hold the right side panel in place. This replacement can done without opening any gas fittings.

The repair was so easily done, my grandson could have put the knobs on. I was so excited when the knobs arrived, I could not wait to put them on. I was like a little girl in a candy shop. Thank you very much!!

Rusty screws

  • Customer: Gerald from Melbourne, FL
  • Difficulty: Difficult
  • Time to Complete: More than 2 hours
  • Tools Required: Screw drivers, Wrench set
  • 0 of 0 people found this instruction helpful
I had to use a dremel to grind the heads off the rusted in screws that hold the burners to the stove top then drill out the screws and use larger sheet metal screws to reassemble. Don't lift the stove top much with the burners attached or you'll bend the gas lines. Two screws inside the top oven hold the top down. Without the rusted screws it would be an easy job.

removing the screws holding the burner together was impossible. they snapped off and I had to drill them out. that took the most time. after that it was 100% easy hookup. clean up of the burner was done with a wire brush. good quality products. thanks.
