Hi,Welcome to Just Answer, My name is XXXXX XXXXX forward to helping you today. lets get started.


if this is sparking from behind the top grill area it may be there is a shorted wire behind the grill, your biggest issue with this is if its not a wirring problem the parts for this are no longer available, I would have a tech check the wirring, hopefully its just a shorted wire, thanks Bryan

How does a working wire end up getting shorted? I am trying to avoid calling a tech. How do I identify a shorted wire?
Expert:  Bryan replied 6 years ago.
wires can get old and frayed, sometimes they can short out, you would need to shut the breaker off and remove the grill along the to and the control panel, check for a bad wire or connector.
