Burner ignitors will not lite
« on: March 02, 2010, 10:22:47 PM »
This really a Roper 1215X0A but can,t find any info.  I have power to the spark module,
my ground is good and good neutral. All wiring checks good. I have no ignition to any burner. I replaced spark module but still nothing.  Any suggestions, did I get a defective
module?

Model JGBC15GEK1

 I just remembered a jumper wire had to be connected somewhere on that thing. Do you remember how the original wiring was or are you having to go behind somebody?

It appears to be the original wiring. The only wiring diagram that I can find that is the same as what is with the range is the one at App. parts pros for mod #1215W0A

No, it is a substitute part and the diagram is the wiring arrangement from the old style module to the new type and the markings on the modules are the same just pin layout is a little different.

On the Spark Module,

N should be connected directly to Neutral

L1 should show 120v AC when any Burner Switch is turned ON

If OK, then, with the Range power un-plugged from the Wall Outlet,
check to see if any of the Spark Module Output Wires are shorted to chassis (ground)

 L1 should be absolutely connected to the HOT leg of the 120 volt outlet,even though it is alternating current, the polarity is important.

If you think a module is bad, leave it in place and disconnect the L1 and Neutral leads. Now plug your handy-dandy patch cord (or use the oven cord on the stove) to directly power the module where it sits.  

Check your wiring harness where it feeds from the control panel area where the gas valves are...there may be a loss of signall from the burner switches  due to a broken (or chewed ) wire. Yes, you may have to pull the main top to do this, but sometimes a little work is involved to find the problem :)

Here is your Wiring Diagram


Mr Capone, please change the model here to Roper 1215X0A as earl indicated in his first post, thanks.
