Default spark igniter substitution
Model Number: KGT583A   Brand: Modern Maid   Age: More than 10 years   

Appliance Parts from AppliancePartPros.com


This 25-yr old nat. gas cook top spark igniter module has stopped working and its direct replacement is no longer available. The module is a Harper-Wyman, Kool Lite model 6521, 120V, 4ma. that came with my Modern Maid cooktop model KGT583A, s/n004363-042 The spark module feeds three separate burner sparkers. There is plenty of room and I don't care about the type of wiring connections. Does anyone know of a substitute part that might work? Part number and where to purchase, if possible?
thanks, meterman

Hi Meterman

Most likely you can use the Maytag spark module, part number AP204776

It is designed for four igniters but you can use it for three, just connect the fourth outlet to the ground.

Good luck.
Gene.

Thank you Gene. I believe this will work and I've ordered it. In fact, my old unit actually has contacts for four igniters but the fourth post is connected to ground.
thanks again, you've probably saved me about $1000.

Will do, but it might take a week or so before I receive the part & get it installed.

Gene,
The part arrived yesterday (excellent service). I installed it this morning and it works perfectly. You just saved me over $1000. that a replacement cook top would have cost.
Thank you very much,
Jack

Default Part help

Gene- I found this thread and you gave a part number ( AP204776 ) which I cannot find any longer. Any help as to what part replaced it? The original part was the same as Meterman's. module is a Harper-Wyman, Kool Lite model 6521, 120V, 4ma.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Hi,

This part number has been changed since the previous post but if you click on the old part number it will come up as Part number: AP4010034

Part number: AP4010034


This is pretty the same part.

Gene.
