      [Webinar] Appliantology Workshop   11/09/2017

      Information is the name of the game in the appliance repair trade today. Appliantology is a powerful information tool for the professional appliance repair technician. But just like with any of the more capable tools in your tool bag, many of the more powerful features are hidden from you unless you "read the manual." Ugh! Who wants to do that? Well, this is one time when you don't have to! In this webinar, Team Samurai will personally walk you through the site and show you many of the useful and powerful features that even long-time users probably never knew existed.

Manual with parts diagram and part numbers.

Went to the repair and all the parts are missing for the spark ignition. Can I use a generic ignition module ? 4 burner.

I'm pretty sure you can replace spark module with generic. If it has more points than the number of burners run the extras to ground. 





By the way, that should be VGSU101-4BSS. Here is the parts list:
