Tom, I've got the same problem as Naresh. My Kenmore gas range (top burners) has finaly got the best of me. It will not ignite. I can hear a a slight ticking sound, but it only sparks intermitently. Please help, I'm running out of matches fast.
Thanks, Leonard

Hello and Welcome Leonard to the Do It Yourself Web Site and my Gas Appliance forum.

The problem discription sounds like the spark module is dead or very weak and about to die...

Whatever I have posted, in reply to Naresh, that you mentioned, try that. Keep in mind that I haven't gone back and reread that posting.

Also be sure the grounding to the spark module has not become dirty nor are the other connections. The entire stoves grounding needs to verified. It must be properly connected at the wall plug, etc.

Regards & Good Luck
