No Spark to light burners

We disconnected the stove to remodel the kitchen, and when we hooked it back up, we get no igniter spark. The gas is on, the light in the oven works, but no clicking spark.

Re: No Spark to light burners

My model is slightly different, but the cooktop maybe locked out. If your display has a button that says TOP, press and hold it for 5 seconds until it beeps, it should then show Loc Off on the display. Pressing it again for 5 seconds turns it back on.

I have a maytag gemini gas stove three igniters work but won't light the burners. One igniter won't spark

Replace the "igniter switch assembly". The igniter's are getting a weak spark and since you have one that will not spark at all, this is the usual problem. Here is the assembly to order.

The part comes with a 365 day, any part, any reason return policy.

Electric igniters dont shut off

Remember to turn the control knob past the "LITE" setting once the burner fires.
If that is not the issue you have one or more defective spark switches.
Each valve has its own switch wired in series with the others.

Stove burner igniter does not work.

Your problem is not the igniter itself, but the burner switch that controls the igniter. All the igniters get their power from one spark module that is mounted somewhere in back of the oven. That's why you are able to get all the igniters to spark with only one burner control turned on. This is normal. That is also why you are able to light the burner in question buy turning on another burner. The spark is being provided by a switch that is working. To answer your question: the igniter is removable, but I don't think it's necessary. Cleaning them generally doesn't make them work better. I would check the wiring from the spark module to the burner switch and/or replace the switch. I hope this helps.
