Kitchen Aid Gas Cooktop KGCG260SWH4 - Need wire from Spark Module to Cerramic Ignitor

5 posts in this topic

The above cooktop is pretty old.  I replaced old Cracked ceramic ignitor.  However the wire that goes from the spark module to the ignitor was brittle and gunked up.  Since it was so old it seemed to crack internally so no spark to all 4 burners.  I shortened it up and it worked for a bit.  However D.C. (dear customer) called back and said there is no spark to all 4 burners again. 

 

Can someone enlighten me on what type/gauge wire to use that will carry the current properly since the old wire is NLA. 

 

Thanks in advance.

Any type of high temperature wire about 14-16 gauge.

I think it should be high-voltage wire,

such as a length of spark-plug wire,

may be available by the foot, at some auto service / parts supply.

Thank you.  I tried an extra piece of oven ignitor wire and that did not work.   It sparked the other 3 but the problem burner did not spark/light.  I noticed that with wire disconnected the the other three working ones did not spark at all - I assume all wires have to be connected to the spark module. 

 

Thanks for the advice!

when any Burner Switch is turned ON,

all (4) Burners should spark.

Try swapping one of the Spark Module "good" outputs,

with the "bad" output.
