    Ignitor lights burner, and the ignitor goes off for a split second, then starts again.  Only happens with right rear burner.  Switched "caps" around from working burners with no change.  Cleaned up a little corrosion on burner, no change. Anyone know how to fix this?

Hey,

These things are so damn temperamental. You gotta get it really clean and dry. Take off the top, get a toothbrush, clean it out. Then use the toothbrush with some rubbing alcohol and clean the spark thingy. That will usually do it. Good luck.

Hi,

Andy's answer to this problem isn't very clear. Was anyone able to correct their problem, as I have the same one. The electronic ignitor stays on after the flame is lit.

Thanks

The simmer flame turns the ignitor off. On my range, the tube that supplies gas to the simmer flame was plugged with rubber-cement-like stuff. Cleaned it out with goof-off and a pastic-covered wire, and it works perfectly now.

My Ruud achhiever 90 starts to fire but as soon as the blower fires the burner goew out. I also noticed that the "igniter" on the end isnt firing. Could that cause the burner to not stay lit when the


There is an ignitor and a flame sensor. If the ignitor does not ignite the gas after a time, it goes out. If the flame sensor does not detect ignition the gas valve closes. When you start it you should see the ignitor come on like a light bulb and glow, then the gas valve opens and you get ignition. Then the flame detector turns on when the ignitor goes out. Flame detectors are like a chrome wire that has one connection to it and it sits part of the way in a burner. They get dirty and corroded. When that happens it shuts down. You can clean the flame detector with steel wool of scotch brite pads. Dont get too carried away doing that though.

My stove lights very slow with a low flame. Should the igniter stay on after it lights oven


Yes the ignitor stays on even after the burner is lit. The ignitor is wired in series with the oven valve. It sounds like the oven valve isn't opening all the way. A new ignitor should solve this problem. The old igniter builds up resistance and doesn't let the correct voltage through to the oven valve for it to open properly.

May have a dirty flame rod. Look in the burner box at either the far right or far left for a probe that sticks in the flame of a burner. There will be only one wire going to it. This rod is a safety sensor that shuts off the gas if it does not sense flame within a few seconds. If you brush off the rod with a toothbrush or Scotch Brite pad it may take care of your problem. If not, make sure the flame travels from burner to burner quickly. The burner tray may need to be brushed off.

Oven does not "burn" steadily when set below 300 degrees.


Sounds like you have a bad oven ignitor and oven burner tube. install a Amperage meter on one of the oven ignitor wire, It should draw above 3 AMPS, if it is below then you have a bad oven ignitor, or just change the oven ignitor to see if it makes any difference. Have fun.

I have a goodman gmpn 100-4 REVB furnace that will not stay lit


If the igniter lights the burners the ignitor..... is not bad. Its like a light bulb.... it works or ot doesn't.
You are describing a dirty flame sensor. Dishonest contractors will sell you a new ignitor but clean the flame sensor when the are installing the ignitor. It is located at the opposite end of the burners than the ignitor. It has one wire going to it. Remove it and clean the rod with a piece of fine grit sandpaper. this should be done every year before heating season.
Good luck

Gas oven wont stay on


If this is electronic ignition, then chances are the burner or ignitor nub has residue on them, preventing the flame detection system from keeping the gas on.

Use warm soapy water and a plastic scrub brush to thoroughly clean the burner cap, burner base, and ignitor nub.

Ignitor works but stays lit!


That is the way it works. As long as the burner is on the ignitor will also be on. Want to see why?

Stove igniters stay on


Hello edmontonDad,
Welcome


You said, Stove igniters stay on.

The igniter goes off only when the cap is removed.

This is happening with two burners at the same time.

This sounds like a valve control problem!
Do not leave this go.
This can be dangerous!
Seek service right away.
SORRY that it has to be hands on service!

Thank you for using our advice.
