I need an ignitor switch. These sit atop the gas valves and astride the shaft. Or a new valve incorporating a switch.
Before you ask we already attempted pro repair. I looked up recommended service outlets on the KitchenAid site and had a tech come out. He looked up the model, said sorry parts are NLA, and left, having the power disconected internally and us having to start it with matches. I've since temporarily wire-nutted around the vacant switch position so three burners work normally and the fourth can be started by operating the ignitor via one of the good controls.
So...a hundred bucks wasted. The cooktop is about 20 years old and given the longevity for such a device I don't think it's all that ancient but that's a separate discussion as to how long parts ought to be available.
I'm hoping however that the switch was not unique to this model and might be available as a part for some other model or brand and no one bothered to create a cross reference table. Or there's another gas valve & switch combination that could safely fit.
Here's the switch:
Ring any bells?
