Question:

All stove burners will not light or spark. Is it the igniter switch assembly, or spark module?How to take the top off? Is it from the back side.

Joe for model number KGRT507FAL1
Answer:

Hi Joe, Thank you for the question.To check the switch assembly you need to turn the gas off to range and with valve open check for continuity on the switches. If there is continuity then check the wiring to the spark module for broken or damaged wires. If they are good then replace the spark module. To replace the module, Turn off the gas supply and disconnect power to the range. Open the oven door and remove the racks from the oven.Next pull the range out so that you can access the back of the unit. Then remove the left side panel. To remove the spark module you need to disconnect the wire connectors from the module terminals. Then remove the mounting screw. Slide the module out from under the tab, and remove it from the housing. Reverse the steps to reinstall. To replace the switches,Turn off the gas supply and disconnect power to the range. You will need to remove the burner grates and the burner assembly's, they just lift off. Remove the two screws at each burner hole to disconnect the burner tubs. On the side panels use a flat head screw driver to pry up to release the retaining clips. Slowly lift the top watching you to not pull or damage any wires. You will need a piece of wood or something to support the top and keep it propped open. Next remove the knobs from the control panel and remove the two screws at each of of the panel and the two screws on the bottom of the panel, and pull the panel straight off. You will be able to see the switch assembly. The switches just pull off the valve shaft. Follow the red and black wire to the back corner of the stove. Disconnect the red wire from the module and the black from a plastic connector, You will just need to squeeze and pull them apart. Next remove the wires from the hook clips holding them to the side of the appliance.The reverse the steps to reinstall the new switch harness. Hope this helps!

There was a crack in the porcelain not letting it spark

I used a screwdriver to pry the electrode assy. out of the burner. then disconnected the wire.
Then just connected the new electrode and place the assy, in the burner.

Broken ignitor insulation; repeated sparking after burner lit

Disconnected gas & electric connections; lifted unit out of countertop onto padded table upside down. Unscrewed ~16 sheet metal screws for access. Removed bad ignitor by driving off retaining clip. Had to remove burner (3 screws) for access to install retaining clip on new ignitor. Reassembled, reinstalled. Works like new!

The ignitor? Would not spark to light the burner.

First I unplugged the electric line to the range. Then I removed the screw that holds the burner in place and then lifted the burner up. Pulled the elec line off it and then took the ignitor/sparker? out of the burner. inserted the new one and put the elec wire to it. screwed it back in place and turned on elec and tried the burner. But now it sparks sometimes and sometimes not. And only if holding the gas on longer than I want as it stinks up the kitchen and is dangerous. What else does this burner need to work properly?

Spark ignition electrode was not sparking properly

Used a pair of pliers and pulled firmly on ignit. elect. till the retaining clip pulled off the bottom of the elect.The wire pulled off the bottom of it and I had to use a long- thin- nose set of needlenose pliers to pull the wire out of where the elect. came out.Plugged wire in place and snapped electrode back in place without using the retainer clip.Works great.Thanks Wade
