Ok......that would suggest that the ignition module is ok. I can't find any in depth wiring info on this unit without paying for it. lists the service manual for $16.99. Something that I won't be purchasing.

I would normally use the supplied schematic when servicing these units.

Since we have determined your ignition module seems to be working, I'm pretty sure the issue is the switch on the valve for the RF burner. In the link below it appears there are two possible switches that could be used in your cook top.

In the link it shows part 7 as a double spark switch and 7A as a single spark switch. I'm not 100% sure what the difference is.

If I was there repairing that unit I would remove the switch assy. and take it to a local parts place for replacement. I'm not sure you can get enough detail from an on-line parts place to make an informed choice in replacing it. I guess you could call an on-line parts place for help too.
