GE Profile Cooktop Keeps Sparking

3 posts in this topic

HI, I have a GE Profile Cooktop and the front right burner keeps sparking even when all switches are off and you have to turn power off to get it to stop. I took unit apart and switched the rear and front wires at the spark module to see if it was the switch harness but the front right kept sparking. I see no damage to the burner electrode at all ao what could it be? The model number was scratched off and all I have are the first five numbers:

All of the Burner Switches are in parrallel, connected to one input on the Spark Module.

If any Burner is turned ON, all of the outputs should Spark.

Make sure none of the burner switches are wet or soggy from spills or overly-aggressive cleaning-- a wet switch can complete the circuit and cause random sparking, too.
