Wolf R364G Burner/Griddle Ignitors

8 posts in this topic

Hi Folks,

Hopefully someone can help steer me in the right direction here, or may have even heard of this situation.

We just moved and as part of the move I decided to replace the oven ignitor on our wolf R364G. The oven had been taking progressively longer and longer to light, so it seemed like it was time for a change.

So I just replaced the oven ignitor, I then plugged the range into an electrical outlet to test it. No gas hookup, kick plate and bottom vent (actually the air intake) plate are still removed, oven burner cover still removed, etc.

So I turn the oven on and the ignitor (glow bar) fires right up, looks like it heats up very quickly, so I'm feeling good. Then I try the burners. Regardless of which burner I turn on, even if I turn the griddle on, the left rear and the front right burner ignitors start firing away.

It's weird, the burners/griddle were working fine before, not sure if something got broken during the move or if I've somehow broken something when replacing the oven ignitor... Fan works, oven light works, oven ignitor looks like it's working great now (at least the portion I've tested so far), but everything up top seems messed up.

I did try unhooking the oven ignitor, even tried swapping leads around (although that doesn't matter). I guess I'll have to try replacing the kick panel, intake grill, oven burner cover etc. to see if there's some pressure switch or something that's coming into play.

Sound familiar to anyone? Any thoughts?

Thanks!

check the Range Spark Igniter Module

On that model, each Burner Valve Switch should only "spark" it's respective Igniter,

although, someone may have once replaced it with a "standard" Module that should "spark" all of the Igniters when any Valve Switch is turned.

Thanks GMF.  Yes, they were previously firing independently.  If you have anymore detail on exactly how I should "check the Range Spark Igniter Module" that would be appreciated.  But regardless, thanks again, you did give me some direction and I appreciate it.

 

Thanks!

OK, I do have and exploded parts list for the range, found the module on the diagram, looks like I should be able to get to it without too much trouble.  So I'll open her up and see what I see.  :blinky: Thanks again.

Huh, maybe I was wrong about the individual ignitors firing before.  Lets face it, wife's not here and I only have a distant relationship with the range.

 

So I did the "jiggle the connections, knock the box about a bit" type of thing and sure enough, all the ignitors for the top burners are now firing together.

 

Makes perfect sense given the move and all.  And it's that module that you first listed - RI 306.  I'll check with the wife about the individual versus all ignitors firing thing, but I'm certainly happier with this than the left-rear/front-right thing.

 

Thanks!

the RI-306 should fire the Burner Igniters individually

OK.  I'll have to go through all the connections carefully and see if the behavior changes.  Thanks!
