No spark at all at the ignitor? Occasional spark and then locks out? Any error codes? What the part number of the sensor you replaced?
Some pearls from one of the many service bulletins on this range:
1. The supply voltage is critical to proper operation of the DSI System. The maximum acceptable voltage for the system is 132 VAC, and the minimum is 102 VAC. If the voltage is above the acceptable limit, permanent damage could occur to the DSI module. If the voltage is below the acceptable limit, sparking will not be reliable. This condition will affect the top surface, bake, and broil burners.
2. On first production units, the 120 VAC outlet must be wired for the correct polarity. If the power supply polarity is re- versed, the DSI module will not be able to detect a flame. Reverse polarity will not affect the cooktop operation, but the bake and broil burners will fail to maintain a flame. More re- cent production uses a new spark module (#8522394) that corrects the polarity internally.
3. The DSI Module must be properly grounded. The DSI module generates a significant amount of electrical noise. This noise is minimized if the module is properly grounded. If a proper ground is not connected, the Electronic Range Control (ERC) may periodically display “PF.” This indicates that a reset has occurred in the ERC.
4. Open solenoid(s) at the gas distribution valve.
