The top burner spark electrode, also known as a range surface burner igniter, is designed for use in your gas range. The function of this part is to provide the spark that lights the surface burner. If your gas range will not start, or if the igniter glows but will not light, you may need to replace the top burner spark electrode. This part is sold individually. This product is white in color and measures approximately 1-1/2-inches in length by 1/2-inch in width. Be sure to disconnect the gas supply to the range before you begin this repair. This is an OEM part sourced directly from the manufacturer.
This part works with the following brands: GE, Hotpoint & Kenmore.
This part fixes the following symptoms:
Unpllug the cooktop and turn off the gas supply. Remove the grates and burners.(they just lift out). Using a torx screwdriver, remove all the torx screws below where the burners sit. There are three screws per burner, except the power burner which has only two screws. Genly lift the stainless steel cooktop, separating it from the rest of the enclosure. Hold the electrodes with one hand, while gently twisting and pulling the wire connector off. Now, remove the aluminum covered foam piece. You will now have acess to the wiring harness assembly. Disconnect the quick connectors and replace with the new assembly. Re-assemble in the reverse order and you're done. About 1.5 to 2 hours. Good Luck

I first removed the top of the cooktop, which was 12 screws with a special star shape to them. Then had to pull the igniters out with some pliers (they have a really tight fit). Then remove the harness. Then I replaced the harness. After assembling, I replaced one of the ceramic igniters due to it being covered in baked on grease. Worked perfectly after that. I thank PartSelect for having super fast delivery. I ordered my parts on a Monday, they were at my doorstep the very next day, I was like WOW. And I chose regular shipping. Thank you very much for your service and your salespeople were VERY helpful, even after 3 order changes.
replaced all four top burner spark electrodes. the same two still didnt work. I had also purchased spark module and that did fix the problem. Lifting the cook top was difficult. I was afraid of breaking the sealed burners. Note there are directions in envelope on the back side of the stove. /use pliers to remove connectors from module. >Getting the top open was the hardest and most time consuming.
openend stove top disconnected wire pushed out old sparker inserted new one closed lid game over
Got a replacement and it was easy to setup and get back to cooking as normal
