I have a GE monogram 36" gas cooktop (ZGU375) and the igniters just stopped clicking a week ago.

I opened the cooktop and followed the AC and it seems to hit some sort of a transformer with a label, "Sheng Chien, P/N 4302 050 02239, 120v/220V 25mA, SCD-89086EC03).

The AC is there on the input of the transformer but I do not measure anything on output of transformer (either AC or DC).

Does anyone know what this transformer does, and where I could get a replacement? THanks.-Doug

Hi Doug,

There should be about 6 more digits after the "5" at the end of your model#.

Then I can look-up that part for you.

OK - seems like the transformer was only a symptom - I replaced the transformer and 4 of the 5 burners work but when I turn the fifth burner on it shorts out the transformer. I took a DVM and measured the resistance of the 5th knob and it goes from open circuit to short when it's turned.

What is the part number of the variable resistor switch that resides around the knob post?

Ok Doug,

Here's the diagram of your top burner parts, #38 looks like the only burner switch thats different on the left most burner, so if that 5th burner isn't #38 order #39 as its the same part# for the 4 others.
