Q:

Should I replace the switch or spark module on my 6 burner cook top?

A:

The problem is not the igniter switch(s) and most likely not even the spark module. The most likely cause is the lack of a good ground or an open ground circuit, or the power supply could have reverse polarity. A dirty or wet ignitor is also a possible cause.

A burner igniter is located on each gas burner base. When a control knob is rotated more than 90 degrees counterclockwise, the igniter will spark and the selected burner will ignite. Additionally, due to Vantage Flameâ„¢, the automatic reignition feature, the igniters will spark automatically if a flame should blow out or be severely distorted by a draft or by a ventilation system. Burner igniters must always be kept clean and dry to function properly. Dirty or wet igniters will result in constant sparking, even if there is a flame present.

Burner igniters must always be kept clean and dry to function properly. Due to the Vantage-Flameâ„¢ reignition feature, dirty or wet igniters will result in constant sparking, even if there is a flame present. Additionally, igniters will spark automatically if the flame is distorted by a draft or by a cooktop ventilation system. Eliminate the draft or reduce the ventilation blower speed in this case.

• When the cooktop is cool and/or more than two burners are in use, the igniters may continue to spark if the control knob is set to the “LOW� position. This is normal until the burner warms up. The tendency to spark under these conditions can be reduced by operating the burner at a higher flame setting for a short period of time (normally 60 seconds or less), then adjusting the control knob down to the “LOW� setting. The burner will also warm up faster if a utensil is placed on the grate.

• The flame should be steady and blue in color. Foreign material in the gas line, especially in new construction, may cause an orange cooktop flame during initial operation. This will disappear with further use.

• The flame should burn evenly around the perimeter of the burner. If the flame is uneven, ensure that the brass burner ring and porcelain burner cap are properly positioned, then check for any foreign material in the burner ring or on the burner cap. Remove any foreign material with a straightened paper clip, wire, or needle. Do not use a toothpick to remove clogs, as it could break off. Do not damage the brass or distort the shape of the burner ring ports.

• Never light the burners with a match or other open flame. If a burner does not ignite, refer to the Troubleshooting Guide.

Q:

Should I replace the Controller or spark module on my Thermador gas cook top?

A:

I will not be able to say with any certainty which component is causing your symptom. Based on your details the failure is more likely going to be one of the 4 micro switches that is activated whenever any one of the 4 burner switches are turned on. It seems to me that the igniter is not sparking while the burner is on because it recognizes and detects the burner flame but when you turn the gas valve off, one of the micro switches remains on or shorted which continues to power up the spark module and it tries to re-ignite the burner not knowing you had turned off the gas valve. I recommend checking the operation of each one of the micro switches.

There is limited technical information available on this specific model and operation. I recommend calling a service technician to diagnose and repair your cook top.

If you do not feel confident repairing this problem yourself, then you can have it repaired at your home by a Sears technician. Here is a link for the website: Sears Home Services .

Q:

Error F6: cook relay #4903 open, shorted, or cook module defective. 66568612891 Kenmore Microwave/hood combo

A:

Thank you for your question and I understand your concern.

The "F6" fault code implies a microwave relay failure.

Microwaves contain high-voltage components that can retain a lethal electrical charge of up to 2200 VAC -- even when the microwave is unplugged. Repairs and adjustments, even minor ones such as replacing fuses, can cause microwave leakage. A microwave shielding leakage test should be performed after any microwave service. 

It is for these safety reasons that we are unable to guide you in microwave repairs and instead recommend scheduling service with a qualified service technician. 

You can schedule service online with Sears Home Services or by calling 1-800-4-MY-HOME. 

We thank you for your understanding in this matter and hope we can help you with other questions and repairs in the future.
