My whirlpool gas range is getting gas and is clean but will not ignite.


Not knowing whether you have an electric ignition or pilot I will make suggestions for both.
Electric -
There is a thermal sensor that detects if it hot or lit. So if this sensor is bad or shorted it will not try to ignite, however if it is every burner / oven device, then its probably the computer that controls the igniter.
Pilot -
Typicaly the piloted gas stoves will not supply gas to the burners / oven if that pilot is not burning, however there is a sensor similar to the on on the electric ignition that lets the stove know if the pilot is lit. Unfortunately this sensor is not electric in almost all cases and is not easy to replace.

If you have the parts list, this sensor will be called a thermocouple usually in both types, but can be called other things. I would go with this and if all else fails replace the whole ignition system (electric) or pilot valve (piloted).

I smell gas and my burners wont light - is there a pilot light in these ranges?


The best way to find out if if your stove has a pilot light, is to lift the top panel of the range . The pilot will usually be located between the burners. Typically you will have two pilots. One for the left and one for the right. The pilot light will ignite with a match without having to turn the burner knobs to the "on" position. Good luck

I cant find the stove top pilot


Electric Ignition (sparking clicking noise when control knob is turned to "light" setting) do not have pilots. The spark ignites the gas.

I need to ge my stove lit


Does it have electronic ignition (clicking sound when starting) if it doesnt and you have an older model you may need to re light the pilot? Also make sure your getting gas to the unit (you will hear a hissing sound when the burners are turned on) try using a match to light the burner

Pilot blights wont stay lit on older model American gas range


Take a very small wire and clean out the pilot holes. Then find the pilot flame adjustment screw and re-set your pilot to 1/4 inch flame.

Gas oven dosnt work


the pilot light is there for 2 purposes. number 1 to light the burner and number 2 to heat up the thermocouple, thermocouple is a wire that the flame from pilot suppose to surround by fire. if the pilot is to low it will not reach the thermocouple. you can take the gas line that supplies gas to the pilot and clean it with a safety pin or a small needle. you can test the thermocouple by heating it up with a blow torch on low heat, get it red hot and then turned on the oven. if the oven works clean the pilot, if the oven do not work, replace the thermocouple if separate from safety valve. if thermocouple is part of it replace the safety valve.

Stove top pilot light


I have a GE Gas Stove XL44 the stove top buners don't light by themselves without manual lighting. When I turn on the buner knob the buner doesn't click. Also I used my self- cleaning oven for the first time and stopped it before the time was up after that is when the stove top buners wouldn't light by theirselves.
