    Default AB80KT-1 Wolf stove top igniter issue

    Model Number: AB80KT-1
    Brand: other
    Age: 6-10 years

    This Wolf stovetop looks to work like any other electronic ignition. A couple of notes;
    1)the complaint is that the electrodes continue to spark (the ones without gas turned on) after the gas ignites on one burner
    2) 1 of the electrodes sti;ll sparks but is partially broken. (the porcelain)
    3) I cleaned (rubbing alcohol) all electrodes and gas plates thoroughly and this improved the situation, but still an issue with sparking after ignition
    4) sometimes if all burners on, you put a pan on one burner...sparking starts up again

    is there an easy fix? replace all electrodes (they were dirty and not very well maintained


    thank you in advance for your reply

    That could be the problem however it's most likely one of the valve switches or the spark module. When they all start sparking try wiggling each knob back and forth and see if it stops. If it does, one or more of the switches is sticking. Check the igniter wires for any bare spots or any pinched wires. Check for broken porcelain on the igniter. On the one that's broken, disconnect the igniter wire at the spark module and see if it still sparks continuously. I'm assuming Wolf is about the same as Viking. Neither one will release any service information or allow appliance parts companies to sell their parts in an attempt to keep all of their appliances repairs "in house". They charge exorbitant fees because it's a "designer" appliance. If you have the tech sheet you have more information than I do.
