Auto electric lighter for the gas stove no longer works

When I press and turn the knob of the gas cooktop, gas is released but there is no automatic electric lighter to ignite - there is no sound nor sparkle. It works when I manually lit the stove. I can't find any battery replacement nor electric wiring for the 'lighter' as it's a built-in cook top on the bench.

    I have the same problem, I spilled soup one day and the igniter wouldn't work, then it was ok. Few days ago I turned the lock on, then off a few hours later and now none of the burners light unless I use a BBQ lighter.

    My gas range electric lighter, the ceramic cylinder was chipped off on one side, thus the spark was low missing the gas stream. How to replace the lighter?

    When I turn the know, there is not spark, I need to sue a lighter to light the burer manually.

    No. The flame detector will cut off the gass if the central part of the burner, which is what ignites, is not hot. Look to see if there is water in the conduit under the tiny central core burner; blow it with an air can.

My 5-burner 36" gaggenau has stopped working. I


Hello.
What the problem is a part in the cooktop that opens to let gas flow to the knobs as soon as they are turned on is bad and no gas coming to surface unit burners. This a safety feature that the German goverment(where Gaggenau is made) requires that part to prevent a gas leak when cooktop is off.

Magic Chef Gas Stove Model CGC2536. 1. On just one of the 5 burners the"Lite" function doesn't work. On all the others you hear clicking, and the gas lights. But on one, no clicking at all....


Try Google your manufacture name model # and the word parts. This will not correct your lighting problem. It sounds like you have a igniter switch problem.

always unplug electricity before attempting to repair on any electrical appliance

Electric ignitors clicking


I'm sorry that I don't have a solution for you, but my Miele gas stove does the same thing. I had a repairman come out while it was under warrantee and they fixed it, but it was only temporary. It's doing it again, but, of course, it's no longer under warantee and will be very expensive to have Miele come out again. I've found that it's the right front burner that causes the clicking, so I've just stopped using it.

Your electric spark switches got wet. You may be able to remove the knobs and use a hair dryer through the switch/valve opening to dry them out.

GE Monogram ZGU48N6D- None of the Ignitors "click"


We just had that problem - the igniter is electric - if none of the burners are "clicking" it could be a power problem. unplug the stove and check whether the outlet is working. In our case, the outlet the stove is plugged into has a "GFI outlet with a reset button. So we reset the outlet and that fixed the problem.
