The oven and burners have separate igniters. There may be a battery that needs to be replaced for the burner's igniter module.

SOURCE: Ignitors do not turn off

it is the place to start.you can use an ohm meter to check if the burner switches are open when the burner knobs are in off position.if the consumer cleans with water if it dosen't just short switch the water can also act as a conductor ,so make sure dry.then inspect wiring for frayed areas that could short curcit.then if all that checks good its your spark moduel. God bless ,tom

SOURCE: Oven does not heat. Glow bar ignitor glows but no flame.

usually this means that your ignitor is weak and needs to be replaced. When the ignitor glows and NO gas flows through you need a new ignitor.

SOURCE: Amana ACS3350AS oven won't light

Hi, Even tho the ignitor is glowing, it could be bad. The ignitors get weak and will not open the gas valve. This is a very common issue with the gas ranges. I would change the ignitor. I hope this helps you. Please let me know if I can assist you further.


Thanks
Vic

I have a Viking vgic365-4G gas range. I recently replaced the spark module, the ignitors for the oven and the griddle, and the spark ignitors for the burners. The problem I am having is only one of the...


Hello,

their is one of two things causing that,

1) the switch that supplies power to the spark module when the burner is turned on is bad...its located on the shaft of the burner valve thier is one switch for each knob so counting the oven and the burners their is 5 (the oven is different from the surface burners) to check those switches what needs to be done is remove the knobs then the face panel so ya can get to the knobs.

No is where is gets a bit complcated if ya dont follow all procedures....the knob must turned on to check so gas will be flowing and ya must light the gas using a match or raw gas will eneter the kitchen...or if possible temporarly turn off gas supply to the unit.also POWER MUST BE DISCONNECTED and then with power off and the burner lit manually once turned on ya would need to check each switch to have continuity,if any of the switches does not have continuity when measured with a ohm meter that switch will be bad


2) the igniter is cracked so power is coming from spark module yet since its cracked power is jumping out before it gets the where it lights the burners.

Ignitor keeps clicking on burner


A creda microwave oven doesn't have an ignitor or burner, so I assume you are talking about either a BBQ grill or gas range.

A suggestion: Clean the ignitor tip with a CLEAN and DRY green scouring pad; check that you have gas coming out of the burner.

If you have gas at the burner and the ignitor is clicking (sparking) then it is usually an ignitor alignment problem where the ignitor got bumped out of position.

Hi there. there is no spark to ignite the gas in oven.


You will need to replace the spark module if you don't hear any clicking, or there is no spark present when trying to ignite the gas.

To test the Spark Module:
When properly operating, the spark module repeatedly produces a spark at the ignitor accompanied by a sharp snapping sound.
  1. Turn off gas and power supply to unit.
  2. Check wiring diagram to verify all terminals and wire connections are correct and tight with no cuts in the wiring.
  3. Prepare to measure voltage on spark module from terminal L to N.
  4. Turn power supply back on.
  5. Turn top burner to LITE position.
  6. If no voltage is present on the meter, this will indicate the electrical circuit is interrupted before the spark module
  7. If voltage is present, then check ignitor.
  8. If ignitors are ok; then replace spark module.
To access the Spark Module:
  1. Turn off electrical power and gas to the range.
  2. Disconnect gas and power from unit.
  3. Remove screws securing top surface burners.
  4. Remove surface burner and disconnect spark ignitor wire from surface burner.
  5. Raise and remove maintop from unit.
  6. Remove screws securing spark module bracket.
  7. Disconnect wire terminals from spark module.
  8. Replace and reassemble in reverse order.

I have a Whirlpool Super Capacity 465 Gas Range. However all the burners on top will not click to ignite. I turned the breaker off and that back on again and it worked for a day or two. Now nothing will...


Power for the ignitors goes straight from the input power to the burner switches then on to the ignition module. The burner switches are in series parallel. Any one of them actuated will provide power to the ignition module.

See the schematic in this pdf file page 22 but page labeled pg 20: https://secured.whirlpool.com/Service/SrvTechAdm.nsf/2cd44500d572193285256a45004fd9d6/ca8e028c60d9804f85256a8c00621f04/$FILE/4322089.pdf

When the ANY burner control is turned on all 4 ignitors do cycle.

Does the oven burner light? If not you most likely have a bad ignition control unit. Item 35 this link: http://www.appliancepartspros.com/partsearch/model.aspx?model_id=242126&diagram_id=32025#d32025

If the oven burner lights then you most likely have a wiring problem to the burner controls. There is ONE power lead that if it comes loose will cause all of the ignitors not to work.

You can use the https:// manual link above to gain access to the top of your oven. See page 15 of the .pdf file.

The igniton system is explained starting on page 19 of the pdf file.

Thanks for choosing FixYa.

Oven does not light. Top ignitor glows red bottom


Since BOTH oven manifolds and surface burners are usually fed from the same source, this is probably the result of failed igniter(s) in the oven. This is assuming that your surface burners are working, or course. If you are trying to light the BAKE manifold, the broiler manifold is used on some model to speed up the pre-heat process. So, you may see the broiler attempt to light as well. If you have tried using only the broiler by itself and it still does not light, you may have a weak igniter on that manifold as well. Double check your symptoms.

If this is a GAS range, as these igniters age from repeated use, they can become weak and longer function. If you are experiencing ignition problems, the following link explains a little theory about how these igniters work and how to replace one:


http://www.fixya.com/support/r3575727-replacing_an_oven_igniter_on_a_gas_range


The burner manifolds in the oven each use a glow bar or electrode type igniter with a gas safety valve to ignite. Both oven manifolds are controlled by the Electronic Oven Control (EOC) board, which is your clock/timer on the control panel. If the surface burners work, but the oven does not, the problem is usually not a gas related issue. It can be a control board issue, but is usually a weak or failed oven igniter.

Replacement parts (if required) can be purchased at any of the following websites:

searspartsdirect.com
pcappliancerepair.com
appliancepartspros.com
repairclinic.com

Prices vary between these sites, so shop and compare. The first three sites listed also offer helpful exploded view diagrams to help you locate and properly identify the parts you need.

If you have any questions please post back with a complete MODEL NUMBER and let me know. I hope this helps you.

I replaced what I thought was a bad igniter.But still had no glow from new igniter. Must be something else.Where do I go from here?


Hello there: The oven bake burner and ignition components are located beneath the oven cavity. In most cases the oven bottom panel can be removed for access (check your owner's manual) but on some models the oven burner has to be accessed from below in the warming or broiler drawer area. If accessing from the top, a 'flame spreader' (flat metal plate) above the burner may also need to be removed to see the burner itself.Many ovens use a single oven burner in which case they only have a single gas valve and ignitor. The same burner is used for both bake and broil functions, the broil usually being in the drawer area below the oven. Higher-end models may have a separate bake and broil burner. On such a system there will be two ignitors, one for each burner. They may also employ a 'dual' gas valve (see illustration above) instead of using a separate valve for each burner.Some range models may have an additional broil burner located at the top of the oven cavity which may be referred to as a 'waist high' broil. If not, broiling usually takes place in the drawer area below the oven, which uses the same bake burner for the broil function. Most gas ranges currently available employ one of 3 basic gas ignition systems; pilot ignition, hot surface ignition system (which uses a 'glow bar' or 'glow coil' - aka an "ignitor") and a spark ignition system. The latter two being referred to as "electronic ignition" systems as they use electricity in one form or another to operate the oven heating system. Only the pilot ignition system has an actual "pilot" (which is a small but real "flame") which might need manual lighting.
If the surface burners of a range are a spark ignition type, the oven IS one of the possible kinds of electronic ignition systems and thus will not usually have a "pilot" which needs lighting. Be aware though that just because the surface burners might light via a spark doesn't necessarily mean the oven uses the spark type ignition system too.
There is one older style of electronic ignition system which does also use an oven pilot but it is very rare and such a system hasn't been used in oven models since the early to mid 70's. It is the 'constant pilot' *electronic ignition* system.


Making Observations
The oven burner's operation will usually need to be directly observed while in operation as the first step to troubleshooting problems.Ignition System Type Links
Ignition System Types:
  • Pilot Ignition
  • Electronic Ignition with Constant Pilot (rare)
  • Electronic Ignition with Glow Ignitor (most common)
  • Spark Ignition System

  • Is there continuity between the oven gas valve's terminals?


    Hot Surface ('Glow Bar') Ignition System (most common)
    This is the most popular system currently used for ovens and is comprised of a control mechanism (whether thermostat or electronic control), the oven ignitor and an oven gas valve.


    What happens in this style ignition system is that the thermostat or electronic control switches power to the oven ignitor and gas valve circuit which are connected in series (one after the other). As power flows through the ignitor it heats and draws current (measured in amperage). Once the oven ignitor draws a specific amount of current the oven valve opens to allow gas to flow to the oven burner where the glowing hot ignitor (glow bar) ignites it. Power must continually flow through the ignitor and oven gas valve for gas to be released into the oven burner to create a flame.

    It should usually only take in the area of 30-90 seconds for the oven ignitor to reach the proper resistance to allow the proper amperage to reach the gas valve to open it and for the ignitor to ignite the gas at the oven burner.

    Hi, I replaced the right side ignitor module and now the ignitors spark vigorously and the burners light but the ignitors won't spot sparking and sometimes keep sparking several seconds after I turn off...


    There are a few things to check for. Make sure the electrode ( the small metal piece that the spark comes off from ) is clean and the holes in the burner are clean, use a pin or paper clip to clean out the burner holes and NOT a tooth pick as these can break off and make things worse. The next thing to check for are theignition switches under the surface control knobs, the switches can twist and break and keep the spark module on and the spark keeps "clicking" even when the burner is light. If every thing looks good, you may have a bad spark module, replace it. Sometimes cleaning can get moisture into the surface switches, try drying them with an hair dryer to see of this will help.

    thanks.keep updated and please do accept the solution.

    Ignitor on Frigidaire model PLCS389DCC is not working. How can I replace it.


    There are a couple of ways you can resolve this issue, depending on what isn't working. As it's difficult to determine by the brief description of the problem you're having, I can't tell if the main spark (ignitor) module is the faulty component, or if you need to replace a specific ignitor/orrifice assembly for one or more burners.

    If none of the top surface burners are lighting when you turn them on, it is most likely the spark module that needs to be replaced. If it's only one burner that is not lighting, then you'll need to replace that burner's ignitor/orrifice assembly.

    To get at these components, all you need to do is lift up the top range surface to expose the burner assemblies and the spark module. Be sure to turn off the gas line and unplug the range from the electric outlet to prevent any shock hazard, etc. Removal and replacement can be done with simple hand tools and by simply unplugging the electrical plug on the spark module.

    Here's a exploded line drawing showing the components, part numbers, and a price list as well. You can order the part(s) needed online as well.

    Sf195lehz5 free standing gas oven,


    Check both gas valve solonoids for 216 ohms [blue broiler wire to the orange common and red oven wire to orange common] both must be ok.

    Check oven temp sensor for 1080 ohms.

    If above are ok then the problem is either the spark module or the control board.

    Since the gas valve was not opening and there was not ignitor sound I replaced the spark module for about $90. You have a 50-50 chance of being right.

    My range is relitively new and I'm haveing an oven light problem which I traced to the control board so I may replaced this board to for about $200.
