Unscrew the base off via philips screw push the inner workings out you will then see a lever which raises when button pressed .if this lever does not raise then it will not release gas to ignite .check the linkage to the button this is the main cause k coulbeck grimsby

    the linkage via the ignitor may have come away from gas release mechnism you need to take the polished case off to inspect the inner working which slide down wards there is a thin horse shoe shaped linkage attached via button to gas valve

Lighter don't light even if it's a nu ignite checked gas flow even spark is gud. And turned up and down lighter gas flow an that didn't work too

Check the gas vents (holes) on the burner, are they clean and clear? Make sure its getting enough air to igniter. Try turning on the gas and light it using a match. If it stays lit the igniter is not working properly, if it does not, either the valve gas vents are clogged or its not getting enough air to keep burning.

It's not lighting

older ranges have a pilot light if goes out relight it, Newer ranges have an electronic igniter it makes a clicking sound and produces a spark, If you don't hear it clicking you have a bad igniter, if you do hear it you should see a tiny spark next to the burner, if you don't see a spark the (spark plug) is wore out or grounded out maybe piece of food or foil ect.

JGBS20BEW2AD, the stove top four cooking burner constantly clicks.

The igniter switch(s) has most likely failed shorted. Fairly common with gas ranges with spark ignition.

I have a Whirlpool Accubake 465 oven, model number SF368LEPB. When I select "Bake" and then press "Start", there is a sound of the flow of gas and the ignitor attempts to spark. I can...

Hello Kevin,
That sounds to me like a cracked bake igniter. One way to tell if its the igniter and but a problem with the burner is use bbq lighter and try to light the bake burner, If it does light using the bbq lighter it will be the igniter. Also ya could remove the igniter from the bake burner and see if their is a visible crack in it.
If it does turn out the igniter needs to be replaced,the part number is 9758079 thepart can be picked up from yoor local appliance parts store or online at;

My Whirlpool accubake is taking a very long time to heat up

It is possible that the igniter that lights the gas is getting weak... as they weaken it takes longer for them to heat up hot enough to ignite the gas. When you light the oven, you should be able to see the orange glow of the igniter within a few seconds (it's similar to a cigarette lighter from a car) within 20-30 seconds you should hear the gas light.

Whirlpool gas range

You may have a bad spark/ignition module, it is located under the main top (on most models) and tells the burners too spark

Try using a lighter, the type used for grills. Since you can smell gas, the gas valve is working but the egnitter that gives the spark to ignite the gas is apparently not working.
Usually is it not the igniter but the controller that controls the igniter. If using the lighter as suggested, and it lites, you probably will have to replace the igniter controller for the range

Spark Igniter not working

Find the spark igniter control box usually on the back inside a metal can take out of the can and check to see it spark is jumping between wires to the individual burners if not and just one burner is not lighting you probably have a cracked spark discharge point.. look at the offending burner and see if it is dirty or pushed down in or the porcelain is cracked. replace if cracked..

If spark module is jumping spark you need to make sure wires are insulated from each other and exchange places with the offending burner igniter to one that works to see where the problem exists. careful to not get zapped while playing with the module!!!
