I have a 16 year old GE XL44 Gas Range, model JGBP30WEW1WW.

The spark ignition has stopped working on all 4 burners. It's worked fine all these years (the only other issue I've had with the range is the oven burner ignitor, which I've replaced twice over time).

I'm guessing maybe the spark module, but I'd like to make sure it's not the wiring. Can you help me troubleshoot to make sure I don't replace the module for no good reason? Thanks for any advice!

when any Burner Switch is turned ON
there should be 120v between the L and N terminals of the Spark Module,
and all Burners should Spark

Thanks, will get out the meter and check this weekend. Is there a way to rule out the wiring from the burner switches to the module?

Sure, when you get out the meter this weekend, check for continuity of the wires from the module to the switches
