Oven spark electrode won't stop clicking
« on: March 07, 2013, 04:28:13 PM »
I'm servicing a Roper model #FGP215KQ0. The oven spark igniter won't turn off after the pilot flame is ignited and the burner flames are on. This also keeps the range burner igniters to continuously spark. The range burner igniters operate normally and do not affect the oven electrode when the burner switches are turned on. I've replaced the spark module and oven burner switch but this did nothing to correct the problem. I cleaned the rust off the spark igniter and metal parts and still no luck. This oven is an older model with no electronic circuit boards. Could the oven electrode (spark igniter) be faulty?

Must be a bad oven spark switch. Unplug the spark switch to the oven control and see if that stops it before ordering another if you wish. Part #36:

Uses a flame rectifier system so the oven switch is out of the picture. Make sure the flame flows between the pilot and the igniter on the burner. That is what tells the spark module to stop. Double check your wires on the module and make sure they are correct.

Has this Range been working OK up till now ?
Check the polarity and ground on the House Wall Outlet.
Any recent House electrical work been done  ?
Check and clean the grounding screw connection of the Spark Module.

Hello I have the very same issue 2 Burner KitchenAid Cook top
in a “Motorhome  KA  Model # KGCR025BBL3  Spark Module
Whirlpool #  4454427 The issue is It just keeps sparking
the cooktop lights fine But the Spark module NEVER quits
sparking. After  trying a few things I called a appliance
repair and he found out the Spark Module was no longer
available paid for service Call, Now can not find the right
part # anywhere. There must be someone that can repair
the spark Module or another Universal Item that my work
The motorhome was stored for a few months and the
cook top worked fine the motorhome was plugged into
power I checked things out one day and I could here the
module sparking. If any one has any ideas that would be great.

Thank You For your Help

So, I checked the wiring to make sure that the connections are correct following the wiring diagram on the back of the oven and made sure that the connections were tight, and, made sure the ground wire had a clean contact. Checked that the flame was between the pilot and the igniter. Oven burner ignited normally but still the igniter continues to click away. Is time to replace the igniter and gas pilot assembly? Logic is telling me that sometime may be grounding out or that rectifier is not sensing the flame to stop the igniter.
