Question about KitchenAid 30 in. KGCS105GSS Gas Cooktop

1 Answer

Gas takes a LONG time to ignite....fix?

I have a Kitchenaid KGCS105 4 burner gas cooktop. It has worked fine for about a year and then poof...it takes a very long time for the ignite to "catch". So we hear that clicking sound that drives us made forever. Once it does catch, the flame is huge. We didn't change or alter anything and everything appears to look okay. I would hate to pay for a tech to come out if it's a simple fix. Thanks

Sexy, first make sure that all the electrodes are giving a spark to the burner caps. If they are, I think your problem may exist with the burner ports (holes). There is a main one that is directed to the ignitor. Take a straight pin and clean out any gunk that may be caught in the holes. Then make sure the burner caps are properly cleaned and seated. You can even scruff them a little on the bottom with sandpaper to get a good ground. Give this a shot first....Catriver..post back.

    Ron, we now have the same problem but in our case there's no gas to lite... you can hold a lighter to the cap area and it can take as much as 1-2 minutes to get gas to lite. Once you get one to light, then all work as normal. Its like you are waiting for gas to get through the regulator? Ideas or suggestions?

One burner igniter fails to spark after getting wet


Each burner has its own switch to direct current to the igniter. It appears that one of the four switches burned or shorted out, while the other three survived the flood. These switches are replaceable, so that's how I'll fix the problem.
