    Default GE Gas range burner ignitor(s) not clicking

    Model Number: JGBP24GEJ3AD
    Brand: GE
    Age: More than 10 years

    The year old thread (link below) describes the problem I have with a gas range - right side burner ignitor(s), for either the front or rear burner, does not click/fire unless the left side burner is lit or ignitor is firing.

    http://www.applianceblog.com/mainfor...-not-work.html

    For a JGBP24GEJ3AD model, is the fix the same?

    Does each burner have its own ignitor switch? Do both the front and read (right side) burners use the same ignitor switch, or separate ignitor switches for each? Or is the replacement an assembly of multiple ignitor switches?

    Where is the ignitor switch located?

    Hi,

    Does each burner have its own ignitor switch?
    Yes.

    Do both the front and read (right side) burners use the same ignitor switch, or separate ignitor switches for each?
    Seperate switches.

    Or is the replacement an assembly of multiple ignitor switches?
    Nope.

    right side burner ignitor(s), for either the front or rear burner, does not click/fire unless the left side burner is lit or ignitor is firing.
    For sure check the switches AND wiring between them and electrodes.

    Where is the ignitor switch located?
    Under the knobs on the control shaft.

    I got the front bezel plate off and exposed the switches, but the switches appear to have heat shrink tubing around the field wire connections to the switch:

    How does the replacement 316035200 switch connect to the field wiring? Solder? tiny screw terminals? butt joint crimp connections? Mini-push-on connectors?
