Thank you!
Give me a minute or two to pull up information on this model

Ok so you can turn the oven Bake or Broil on and the cooktop burners begin to spark is that correct?

And has anyone done any work on the unit recently?

Customer: replied 3 months ago.
that is correct
No no one has worked on it

ok are you able to pull the unit away from the wall and remove the rear upper inspection cover that is right behind the console area?

I would like to make sure you have no wires touching each other on the units spark module that is just to the right of the clock /control board when looking at the unit from the rear.

It would be item #4 (spark module)in this parts break down.
