Hello,
I have a Magic Chef gas range - model number 3468xrw- that is having ignitor problems. The two left ignitors spark, but the right ones do not. I have switched the ignitors, left to right, and get the same result - no spark on the right, spark on the left.
What's going wrong?
Thanks,
mthompson

You mean you just switched the ceramic electrodes?

Try switching the wires that that connect to them. I think you'll find that you need a new spark module.

Hello,
How do I go about switching the wires? Where do I access them? The stovetop is sealed.
thanks, MT

How did you switch the electrodes? The ignition wires are attached to them!

It's possible you have a bad ignitor switch.  It could be fouled up with grease or just a bad connection.  It could be bad.  Each burner valve has a switch.  You can drop the manifold panel and take a look at them.  The switch part number is 7403p279-60.  You can get them here...Ron

Hi,
How do I "drop the manifold panel?"
Thanks, MT

On this one, you turn and lift each sealed burner. Underneath them, you'll see a wire that attaches to the electrodes. You'll also see two Phillips screws that'll have to come out-- same with each burner. Then the top can be lifted like a car hood.

Or you can save yourself some hassle and just replace spark module.
