Question about Kitchen Ranges
We just bought a house that has an older 24" Hotpoint Gas Stove. The gas *was* on and the plumber tried to get the stove to turn on. Gas comes out, but there was no "clicking" or lighting when the knobs were turned to the "light" position. He doesn't know whats wrong and just turned off the gas to be safe. Since it is a custom size and we are broke I am hoping this is an easy fix. Also, I don't think it's related but at some point in the past the pipes burst and flooded the kitchen.
We have the same problem constantly. We have discovered that if we disconnect from electrical outlet, we "reboot the interior control" and it starts again. Said to say, tonight it doesn't seem to be working. I hate these! I'm going to go look for an "old fashioned gas range."/

Modern gas cookers use an electronic ignition switch rather than a pilot light to light the gas for cooking. This means you can light your gas cooker with the touch of one button instead of using several matches or a flint lighter. Of course, you still have the option to light the gas cooker by hand with matches or a flint lighter if the ignition switch does not work the first time.
1.Open the gas regulator valve by pushing it in and turning it to a low setting.
2.Push the ignition switch once.
3.If the gas cooker does not light on the first try, close the gas regulation valve for one minute by pushing in on it and turning it back to the "Off" position.
4.Open the gas regulation valve, set it a bit higher than you did on the first lighting attempt, and push the ignition switch again.
5.Light the gas with a match or a flint lighter if the gas cooker does not light when you push the ignition switch again.
