How to Change the Spark Module on a Gas Cooktop for the GE JGP328BEJ1BB

Save

The GE JGP328BEJ1BB gas cooktop is installed into your kitchen counter. Gas ranges require a spark to ignite the burners. If the spark module is malfunctioning, the burners will not light. In order to access and replace the spark module, you will need to remove the top from the cooktop.

Things You'll Need

  • Flat-head screwdriver
  • Torx screwdriver
  • Phillips screwdriver
  • Turn off the gas valve that supplies gas to your GE gas cooktop.

  • Lift all of the burner grates, burner caps and burner heads off the cooktop.

  • Slide a flat-head screwdriver between the burner’s base and the igniter. Pop the igniter out of the burner’s base by lifting it out. Repeat for all of the igniters.

  • Unscrew the two Torx screws along each of the burner bases by using a Torx screwdriver.

  • Lift the burner bases and graphite gaskets off the cooktop. The graphite gaskets are located directly under the burner bases. Use caution with the graphite gaskets, as they can break.

  • Grasp onto the burner knobs, and pull up to remove them.

  • Lift up the top of the cooktop and set it aside.

  • Pull out any insulation material that is under the top. You can lift the insulation out with ease, as it is not attached to anything.

  • View the spark module at the back right side of the cooktop, and make a note of the wires and their placement.

  • Unplug the wires from the spark module by pulling them out. Unscrew the two screws that hold the module in place.

  • Remove the old spark module and insert the new module.

  • Replace the wires according to your wire placement note. Screw the new module into place.

  • Reverse the steps to put the cooktop back together.
