Electrode or Spark Ignition Switch needed for range??
« on: November 14, 2012, 10:23:55 PM »
Hi,
On my 20 year old 4 burner gas stove, 2 burners work fine. The 3rd has a cracked electrode ("clicks" once, but must light with match) and the 4th is intermittent (sometimes fine, other times 1 "click", then must light with match). I have watched some "how to" videos, but can't seem to grasp if it is just electrodes I need for both burners, or if I need more than that, like a switch or module. Any of you gurus have any advise for me? Thanks!

Can you get the model number off the appliance so we can help you better?

Sometimes the grease around the electrode prevents ignition and sometimes the hole by the electrode is blocked where the gas comes out to light the burner.
