Ignitor's not working
« on: June 01, 2012, 01:53:30 PM »
I'm not sure of our exact model, I grabbed the user's guide for our stove before leaving for work this morning so it's either a MGR5870, MGS5770, or MGS5870.  The other day we were getting ready to cook and none of the 4 burner's would come on.  They all had gas coming out but there was no ignition sound, no sparks coming from all 4 ignitors.  The user guide was useless in this, can I fix this myself?  What do I need to do?  Thanks for any input.

I would make sure you have electric to the power cord 1st, may be the spark module.

Back side of the stove is an access panel to get to the spark module

Thanks guys, funniest thing though, yesterday morning I was going to heat up some water and found the ignitors to be working fine again!  This was after several days of nothing, not even a click.  Now they all work like normal.  I just wonder if this is a warning sign that it's thinking about going out for good.

Sometimes when a pot gets boiled over the water will get to the stove and after it drys out a day or 2 later it all works again. seen it.
