One of the gas burners does not open.

The knob turns and the igniter sparks but no gas is coming through to the single burner. The gas cook top is about 8 years old.

Thanks.

The valve is either clogged or defective.  Best bet is to get a new valve.  Servicing old ones is a poor bet. If you are unsure how to install it, get a service person.  Gas can be dangerous if the job is done wrong.

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.

Kenmore gas range when no clicking when turning the oven on

Range: Gas burner won't spark or ignite A surface burner igniter switch and a spark module activate the spark electrode when a burner is turned to the "Lite" position on a gas range's cooktop. If the surface burner switch, spark module or wiring in that circuit fails, the spark electrode won't work, and as a result the gas burner won't light. If those components work but the electrode won't spark, the problem could be that the spark electrode is coated with spilled food of is bent or broken. In addition, the electrode won't spark or ignite the burner properly if the ceramic insulation sleeve below the tip of the electrode is cracked or broken. If the gas burner isn't lighting, these repairs may help.

Replace the spark igniter electrode

1396454293470.jpg The spark igniter electrode-also called the surface burner igniter-is an insulated electrode that provides an ignition spark to light a surface gas burner. It sparks and makes a ticking sound when the burner switch is turned to the Lite position. Replace the spark ignition electrode if it fails to spark or if the ceramic insulation sleeve is cracked or chipped. How to Replace a Spark Igniter Electrode in a Gas Range Find This Part

Replace the surface spark module

1377098014986.jpg The surface spark module is in the ignition circuit for the gas surface burners. When a surface burner control knob is turned to the "Lite" position, it provides voltage to the spark electrodes on the gas surface burners. If the surface spark module fails to provide the electrodes with voltage, then it should be replaced. Find This Part

Replace the spark igniter switch

1396454315355.jpg The igniter switch is an electrical switch on the stem of the gas surface burner control valve. This switch completes a circuit to the surface burner spark module, causing the burner igniters to spark when the burner switch is turned to the Lite position. Replace the burner igniter switch if the burners don't spark when you turn the burner control knob to the Lite position or if igniters spark constantly even when the burner knobs are in the Off position.

JGBS20BEW2AD, the stove top four cooking burner constantly clicks.


The igniter switch(s) has most likely failed shorted. Fairly common with gas ranges with spark ignition.

We are cranking up this BRAND NEW Vulcan flat top. Weh have the convection oven below up and running, but we can't even see a pilot light for the flat top. Advice anyone? Culinary-yours Chef Geir


older ovens have pilots but the newer machines are electronic ignition,there are ignitors in the oven and electrodes or ignitors on the top burners,when you turn the knob for the burner you should hear a clicking sound and see a spark around the burner,that's what lites the burner,the gas comes in and the spark ignites it,i don't know much about your machine but it can't be any different from other stoves.if none are sparking there should be a spark module in there or they could have separate modules,if you send the full model number i can look it up for you

Gas range won't ignite. We had PGE and come over


This sounds like a failed burner igniter, also called a spark module. These are pretty easy to replace since the module itself is located at the back of the stove under an access panel. The price is around 40 to 60 dollars. Lately it seems that these newer stoves have weaker spark modules. I see dead modules on models less than 2 years old, where it used to be more like 5 or more years on the older ones.

The three burners on the top of the range will not light.


You either have an issue with gas flow from the control valves or with the piezoelectric gas igniters. Turn the knob to low and try lighting the burners by hand. If they work, then your problem is not gas flow but the ignition. Turn the knobs to light and see if each burner clicks and you see sparks at the igniters. If you are not seeing a spark, try cleaning up the igniter tips. If that doesn't do it, it is probably time to call the service technician (or the Hotpoint Customer Service hotline).

Igniter


It is normal for all 4 burners to spark at same time.  Often burners won't light even when you can see the spark at them because the burner is dirty.  Take a pin and clean out all the holes in rim of burner.  Also look for small cracks in white part of igniter.  If cracked it must be replaced.

Igniters won't stop poppong


Sing, sounds like you got one of your burner valve switches wet and it's grounding out. Try taking a hair dryer, pull of the burner knobs and going lightly over the control valves. The switches are mounted to these valves. It just may need to be dried out. If this doesn't work, one of the switches shorted out. Catriver..post back.
