Hello Tomstrong
Welcome to fixya,
You said, the burner knob won't rotate.
Are the other knobs working?Make and model are?
And hoe old is it?


I believe the switch that the knob turns is failing and will need a replacement!
If you do not know to do this repair, better use a tech.
Let me know ho it goes!
Huuum
Please remember to leave a ratin

Orifices burner flame adjusted


Most burners have an adjustment under the knob. Pull off the knob and use a slender flathead screwdriver. Turn burner down to low, insert screwdriver into knob shaft and rotate internal screw until flame is at "simmer" height. Can adjust each burner separately this way.

I changed the thermo coupler and the pilot light does stay lit but the burners won't light


If you are referring to a gas fireplace:

  • Make sure the pilot knob is turned from "pilot" to "ON" or it will never run.
  • If the pilot knob is "ON", and the pilot is lit, but the burner won't light, it could be a bad Thermopile. The thermopile is the other safety mechanism in the pilot assembly that controls the burner.

Burner won't light, pilot is burning just fine.


Once you get the pilot to light and stay lit did yall move the burner knob to the ON position? Is the temp knob all the way up?

I was just wondering my rotisiree burner dosent work .. please help asap! thanks


If it is not igniting and hold the flame and getting red, it could be that the burner is dirty and clogged or the thermocouple that keeps the burner lit has failed.Please keep in mind, when lighting an infrared burner, you must hold the burner control knob in for several minutes. At least until all the ceramic plaques are glowing brightly. if the igniter won't light it, try match lighting it, while you hold the burner control knob in.

Most gill manufacturers recommend lighting and burning the infrared rotisserie burner on a regular basis, whether you use it or not,. Doing this helps to keep the burner clean.

I hope this has helped you and thanks for choosing FixYa.

Have a home depot ducane 5 burner. just replaced burner tubes. have never used the rotisserie burner on it before. it lights but won't stay lite after releasing knob...any suggestions? Thanks


Infrared burners requite that the gas control knob be held in for 2 minutes or so, to allow the thermocouple on the infrared burner to heat up completely. If it's windy were you are, the wind can blow the burner out, while trying to light it. That's why it has a thermocouple on it, to stop the gas if the burner goes out. All cooking on the rotisserie is doon with the lid/hood closed, at temperatures around 250 degrees F. Once the infrared burner turns bright red, release the control knob.

Hope this helped you to get it lit. Thanks for choosing FixYa.

The burners light, but it takes an inordinate time for them to stay lit. One of the burners will not stay lit when the knob is released, regardless of how long you depress the knob.


Need a new fsd ( looks like a small brass pencil) for the burner that won't light. The alignment of the ignition electrodes needs looking at and there over all condition I. E broken , worn , misaligned ect

Dead burner on kitchenaid gas cooktop?


it is strange that you have no gas and no spark! if you held a match to the burner and turned the burner valve on it would lite di spite a failed ignitor,but for it not to lite, the burner valve[its what the knob attaches too] would have to be blocked[thats rare]or ........i got it .....the knob is broken.thats the only thing the burner valve and the spark ignitor have in common.try a knob from another burner................again.you have spark,because others are working.spark on troubled burner would work if valve blocked at orifice outlet,and if spark failed you would still get gas they work independent of each other,[but in unison].thats why im thinking knob.its the item that works both .when you turn the knob it opens the gas valve and as the gas valve rotates by turning the knob it activates or turns the spark switch so it closes the curcit allowing the electricty to the spark moduel.hey i hope that helps a little. God bless ,tom

Gas Flow


suspect problem is with the regulator on the gas bottle as it would be unusual for all burners to be faulty at the same time. try substituting a new regulator
