Bad switch...typically if one burner is affected.  Otherwise, replace spark module.

I have a kenmore stove model number 790,72403012 and 3 of the 4 burners are working. They all are getting a spark, but the front left won't fire up.


First, try to light the burner in question with a match. Just hold a match to the burner, then turn the gas on to low. If the burner doesn`t light, the problem is the gas supply to the burner. Next, lift the top cover and put the prop rod in the hole in the cover to support it. Hold a match to the left-front burner. Now, turn the control knob to "light". You should see the igniter spark and hear a snap. If this doesn`t happen, repeat this step with the left rear burner. If you hear the spark and snap.
If the igniter doesn`t work on the front left burner, but does on the rear left burner, the igniter does work. The problem is likely the control knob for the left front burner. The. Control knob includes the electrical switch the activates the igniter when you turn on that burner.

When you turn the knob you dont smell gas, don't here the click of the igniter, but would like to light the oven manually. Can you help me please.


you can't manually light the oven with a match anymore,you have an electronic ignition in the oven or an ignitor part number 5303935066 and it's around 60 dollars.you have to remove the racks,remove the floor of the oven and then remove the cover and you'll see the ignitor in the back screwed to the tube usually with two 5/16 inch screws. set the oven to bake on 350,if the ignitor glows but doesn't light in 40 seconds it's bad,if it doesn't light at all you can unplug the ignitor and check it with a meter for continuity but most likely you have a bad ignitor.wet a paper towel and wet the two screws,they will come out easier,you can't use wd or anything like that because it will smell when you turn the oven on so use water, if you can see where the disconnect is to unplug the ignitor unplug it or when you get the screws out cut the two wires close to the ignitor,the new ignitor comes with ceramic wire nuts so you can connect the two wires you just cut to the new ignitor,the wires on the new ignitor will be long,you can screw the new ignitor on,leave around 6 inches of wire on the new ignitor so the wire connectors will be away from the tube and not up near the floor and if you have the ignitor screwed on you can see how long to make the wires,cut the wires and strip the ends on the old and new wires and wire nut them together.then turn it on to bake,when the ignitor starts to glow it sholud lite the flame in less than 40 seconds.hope this helps you out.one more thing don't touch the piece of the ignitor that's inside the metal bracket,they break very easy.good luck and have a great holiday.

Burners won't light automatically. Will light with a match. Flint doesn't spark anymore. Can flints be replaced and by whom?


If none of the igniters are working then it is probably the igniter module which is relatively easy to replace on most makes and models.

Ge Spectra Xl44-three of 4 gas burners will not ignite without a match.


Electric gas igniters sometimes get stuck in one position causing a clicking sound. The clicking sound that you hear is the electric arc that is pulsing from the igniter conductor (wire) to ground (the gas burner). It receives power from the electrical outlet that the stove is plugged into.
Residue from food and sometimes cleaning products may be preventing the igniter from producing a spark (Arc) to the base of the burner. This is a common problem that occurs when the stove has been cleaned or food is allowed to build up. Make sure that the igniter and the burner base are clean and dry. This will help with proper operation. Oven cleaner and a small tooth brush may be used to accomplish this. Another problem with ignition may occur if you have too little (touching) or too much space between the igniter and the base of the burner; it will prevent the burner from igniting. You should only have a little more space than the thickness of a nickel between the burner base and the igniter. A good “blue” arc from the igniter to the burner base is optimal. If this doesn’t work, you may need to replace the electric igniter module. Good luck.

Ignitors not working, have to start burners with a match. Have cleaned them, still not working, don't appear to be damaged.
