Pilot lock light on stove is on so stove burners unable to work


This sounds like you may have to fix a problem in the pilot area before it will work. These gas operated devices have to meet a much higher safety standard than their electric counterparts. It is a built- in safety feature. Now, look for any obstruction or crimp in the gas line. My guess is you are not getting proper gas flow or pressure or the pilot could be physically blocked.

Where is the Pilot for my whirlpool oven


If you have a pilot light, it's in the oven section you take the bottom plate off with the 2 screws holding it on. It's going to be in the back by the burner valves. Most whirlpools don't carry pilot lights.

Middle section ticking sound with sparking as if trying to ignite even though knobs aa


see this steps and fix it. God bless yo
Relight an oven pilot:
  1. Turn all controls off, open the doors, and allow gas to dissipate.
  2. Hold a lighted match near the tip of the pilot on the burner assembly. If a burner does not light within two minutes, adjust the pilot, step 3.
  3. Turn the pilot adjustment screw (located near the pilot or the thermostat) in small increments and retest until the pilot has a blue flame.
  4. Check and replace an oven spark igniter:
  5. Turn all of the appliance controls off.
  6. Open the door and remove the oven bottom and the baffle (see above).
  7. Unscrew the igniter from its mounting bracket and inspect it for cracks or other defects. Replace it if it is damaged.
  8. To replace a faulty igniter, find the ignition control module, unscrew the cover, and disconnect the module. Install the replacement part and test.

We just bought an older house with a jenn air cook top but the pilots are out. How do we light them?


First, you need to look below the cooktop to find the gasline. There is supposed to be a shutoff valve on this gasline. Turn the handle so it is parallel with the gasline (perpendicular is closed) to open it. Before lighting anything, smell around high and low around the cooktop and make sure you do not smell any gas. You can also spray soapy water on all the gasline fittings to detect leaks by looking for bubbles that form. If all is safe, using a long butane lighter, light the pilots for the cooktop. There should be 1 pilot for every 2 burners. You will probably have to remove the grates and metal spill covers to light the pilots. The pilot should be approx 3/8" tall or less. Test each burner individually to make sure they light off the pilot. If they do not, you may need to clean the vertical holes on the side of the burner (where the lighting tunnel connects) by poking them clean with a needle. If the horizontal burner holes are clogged, clean them as well. If there is also a built-in wall gas oven, be sure to light that pilot on that as well. Good luck. Douglas

How to relight the pilot light?


There is an easy way to relight a pilot light in an oven/broiler if you do not have long fireplace matches and you are scared to stick your arm in with a regular lighter: Light a long stick of incense, but do not blow out the flame. Open the broiler door. Turn the oven to "broil" and extend the lit incense stick in \to the back of the broiler space. Wave the incense stick slowly back and forth below the broiler coil towards the rear of the oven until you hear the pilot light ignite, then pull the incense stick out, blow out the flame and insert into an incense holder.

My oven want light its gas and the the pilot light islit


Is this a standard gas cook-top there maybe some small particle blocking the area where the gas comes out and lighting with the pilot. If you feel comfortable try lighting it with a match. First make sure there is not a lot of gas build open, so if there is a window near the stove open that and make you have plenty of ventilation before striking said match.

The electric strike on my cook top wont stop striking even after the pilot lights or the gas is shut off. I have to unplug it to stop.


The problem is in the pilot ignitor Located under top, unplug the unit before replacing it. Write down all of the information ,mode, serial, and product number and name of stove. If you can get a part number, this would be very helpful. Take this to a local appliance parts house and they can help you.

No spark to ignite gas on cooktop


Shut off the stove. Then lift up the range top and you will see pilot lights. Remove the cover on the pilot lights. They could be blown out, but usually they are just dirty. Take a pin and poke it through the hole, then carefully scrub the tubes with a brush that go from the range to the pilot light. When your done with that....use a long match and light the pilot light, make sure no gas is on when you do this. No flames will come out, but it doesn't hurt to be extra careful.

This just happened to me so good timing!

Hope this helps

hi,

it sounds like the oven safety valve is bad, it will reach a point when the pilot will make enough energy to keep itself lit, but not enough to open the gas valve to light. it will need to be replaced. if you are handy you can do this, but make sure you shut off the gas to the range first. you should be able to find a replacement online, if not check with a local LP gas company that sells parts to the public.
