Replace Burner Ignitor DCS range

One burner spark is weak, 1 faint spark per 10 clicks, and burner will not light. All other burners spark fine. I have fastidiously cleaned from the top with no success. Range about 6yrs old. My question: How do I replace the ignitor? After removing the thin nut and simmer ring can I unthread the venturi with a wrench? It does not yield to gentle pressure. In the parts diagram it looks like there may be a nut (#210468) underneath? Anyone have a service manual for this range? Thanks

SOURCE: dcs gas oven/range, ignitor won't go off after burner or burners are lit

They probably cleaned the stove and in replacing the parts of the burner switched the rings on top of the burner. This happened to me. While they look alike, the round rings, not the flat disks, have to be on the right burner in order for the electron spark to ignite the gas. Good luck.

SOURCE: DCS Range constant sparking at all burners even when lighting one

This happens to mine if there is anything on any of the burners, such as food residue or moisture. Check all the burners to see that nothing is touching the burner area where the gas jets are. Even a little water can make this happen.

SOURCE: Two burners on the range

Hello,

First, try the steps below;

1. Remove the burner cap from the burner base and clean
according to "General Cleaning" section.
2. Clean the gas tube opening with a damp cloth.
3. Clean clogged burner ports with a straight pin as shown. Do
not enlarge or distort the port. Do not use a wooden
toothpick. If the burner needs to be adjusted, contact a
trained repair specialist.
4. Replace the burner cap, making sure the alignment pins are
properly aligned with the burner cap.
5. Turn on the burner. If the burner does not light, check cap aligment.


Before cleaning, make sure all controls are off and
the oven and cooktop are cool. Do not use oven cleaners, bleach
or rust removers.


If the above doesn't work please let me know so that I may direct you further.

Good luck.

SOURCE: NEED TO REMOVE RANGE TOP. THE LARGEST BURNER NUT HOLDING THE VENTURI IS STUCK. OTHER THREE BURNERS REMOVED OK. DO I HAVE TO SPLIT THE VENTURI NUT TO REMOVE RANGE TOP? I NEED TO GET INSIDE RANGE UNIT.

Yes keep playing with it and BOOOOM! Call in a professional. This is the law with gas appliances.

And turn off the CAPS lock. We heard you the first time :-)

Igniter switch on top burner will not shut off


try thoroughly cleaning the burners, particularly the holes in the ring that the gas come through. The gas come through to heat the ignitor so that the ignitor knows to stop trying to light the burner ; if the holes are clogged the ignitor doesn't heat.
The burner is easily disassembled from the top by removing a thin bolt, and you can clear the holes with a paper clip.

Ge profile gas range. one burner with no clicking and no ignition


You may have a bad burner switch. If you turn one of the other burner switches to make the spark modules spark look and see if the electrode is sparking at the bad burner. Most of the spark modules send a spark to all 4 burners when activated. If it sparks when another burner is activated open the valve and see if the burner will ignite. If so you probably have a bad burner switch.

Very likely the spark module. All four are supposed to click when one is turned on, however they are supposed to stop when the burner ignites. Replace the module and test. Good Luck, Appliance Specialists

Ignitors constantly click.


Hi, it is possible, that your spark module, need replacing, but it could be other things too. could be faulty ignitor switch, whenever you turn knob to light burner, it activate switch, remove burners, lift top off, you will see, that each knob are connected to valve with two, or some model has one wire, connected to it, check for any breaks in wiring harness, could be something simple like bruise wire touching cooker body, etc. also turn knob and light any burner, turn knob clockwise all the way, let burner light, then gently turn knob counter clockwise and listen to hear if clicking stop, if clicking continue until burner goes off, it's possible you'll need to replace spark module, sometimes, they get short circuited, takes about 30 mins to replace module, $90/ hr. oouch, big companies, does that price, includes, price of module? can you get a regular repair guy, ask a friend they might know one. good luck.

Ignitor won't shut off


The Viking manual says that an ignitor that continues to try to light even after the burner has been lit indicates improper grounding, and that an electrician should be consulted.

Perhaps you could try to replace the ignitor, and see if that fixes the problem?

I have a similar age, 6-burner 36" rangetop.
