Hello, I'm helping a friend who's trying to locate an igniter for a Kenmore Cooktop. The model # it 911.3328811. He found the part on the igniter with the help of a magnifying glass. The part # is 338043. We looked online and sites show the part to be obsolete. I've tried to find an igniter that would be a substitute, but have been unsuccessful. To the appliance gurus reading this. Does anyone know if any other igniter would work? Thanks for reading acajun
I have a Dacor PGM365 gas cooktop where the front two burners light fine, but, when you cover them with a pan, the igniters turn back on. The igniters stop clicking if you uncover the burner. I suspect it might be a grounding issue, but not sure how to track down because the problem only occurs when the burner is on and covered with a pan. Has anyone heard of such a thing?
The oven on our DCS RG-304 Gas Range (using Propane) is not heating properly. The top burners and broiler seem to be working fine. The oven bake burner igniter is heating up to glowing quickly when the oven is set to a bake temperature. After about 6 minutes the gas will kick on and light. After a few minutes of firing the gas will go off, but apparently short of the desired temperature, and the oven (preheating) lamp doesn't go off. At some point the gas seems to kick back on, but either doesn't light again or lights low and switches back off. I've followed the troubleshooting guide as best I could through the first few stage - igniter working, power flowing to the thermostat (I think - I borrowed a volt/ohm meter but wasn't entirely sure I was touching all the right connections to test power and continuity). I started to remove the service access panel to test the thermal valve but the panel was getting hard to remove and I wanted to get some advice first. From all I've read, it seems that the igniter is getting amps but not enough to keep the gas valve open? The ignitor part number is 211541P and takes 3.2 - 3.7 amps and costs around $100. I ordered a Frigidaire 5303935066 which has same appearance, says it has same Amp range, and was about $20. Will this work? Will it fry quickly? Other advice on likely problem? One update: I got an amp meter and tried to test it and after I tried that it appears that the igniter burned out completely. Is that co-incidence or did my errant manner of checking with the meter somehow burn it out? NB: I am on an island off the Maine Coast, so in-person service is a real problem!
My wife has a concern about our approx. 10 yo Kenmore Elite gas oven, model# 790.79013100 I know her observations are subjective, but trust me she KNOWS this oven. She's like a cross between Betty Crocker and Martha Stewart, uses this appliance daily, bakes frequently, and routinely turns out magnificent meals, treats, cakes, baked goods etc. with it. She says it's been taking longer to preheat. I observed this myself on a day that also happened to be the first time this year we put on the central AC in the house (which i also suspect needs so PM). That was a concern but didn't reach panic mode until she got a whiff of gas, or possibly wiring insulation. My first thought was the igniter is bad or headed there fast. A little informal testing had ignition almost exactly 60 seconds after the oven temp is set. Then Betty Stewart freaked out and accused me of trying to asphyxiate the family. What's my next (non-lethal) step here?
OldAsDirt posted a topic in DIY Appliance Repair HelpHello! Once again I am searching for a replacement igniter module for my intermittent module. (It has worked only for a few periods since my last search... in 2005!) (Previous post: http://applianceguru.com/forum1/3135.html) Only few were sold in the US it seems, so little parts info is available, but all I really need is a 5 burner ignition module. (I.e. a module with 5 outputs - they all fire at the same time.) Can you recommend a 'not ridiculously proced' module? (110V 60 Hz input, 5 connectors for the burner switches and 5 spark outputs) Let me know if more info or photos are needed. Thanks for your help! Regards, OldAsDirt in NH
