JOB AID
Part No. 8177893
FORWARD
This Job Aid, “Whirlpool Gas Range Direct Spark Ignition System,” (Part No. 8177893), provides
the technician with information on the operation and service of the Direct Spark Ignition System.
It is to be used as a training Job Aid and Service Manual.
The Wiring Diagrams used in this Job Aid are typical and should be used for training purposes
only. Always use the Wiring Diagrams supplied with the product when servicing the unit.

GOALS AND OBJECTIVES


The goal of this Job Aid is to provide detailed information that will enable the service technician to
properly diagnose malfunctions and repair the Direct Spark Ignition System.
The objectives of this Job Aid are to:
• Understand and follow proper safety precautions.
• Successfully troubleshoot and diagnose malfunctions.
• Successfully perform necessary repairs.
• Successfully return the Direct Spark Ignition System to the proper operational status.

WHIRLPOOL CORPORATION assumes no responsibility for any repair


made on our products by anyone other than Authorized Factory Service
Technicians.

IMPORTANT SAFETY INFORMATION
Your safety and the safety of others is very important.
Important safety messages have been provided in this Job Aid. Always read and obey all
safety messages.
This is the safety alert symbol.
This symbol alerts you to hazards that can kill or hurt you and others.
All safety messages will be preceded by the safety alert symbol and the word
“WARNING.”
All safety messages will identify the hazard, tell you how to reduce the chance of injury, and tell
you what can happen if the instructions are not followed.
