Model JGD8430ADS cooktop - right front burner igniter constantly

This answer was rated:

Model JGD8430ADS cooktop - right front burner igniter constantly sparks when burner is not lite - even with control in OFF position. I recycled the unit by unplugging the electrical plug - no ignition spark with unit unplugged but once plugged in it started to spark again. What might cause this?

Sure

The problem here Bill is that the switch that is mounted to the valve for that particular burner has either got moisture in it and has shorted or has just failed shorting the switch out.

First try shutting the power off for 24 hours in order to give the switch time to dry, If this fails to clear the problem then the switch will need to be replaced.

Mike,


Are these Spark ignition switches interchangeable between burners? Item is out of stock and the RF burner is the one most used...could I replace wih one from another burner?

Yes you could swap out the right rear burner, This is the same part number Bill :)
