Question about Cooktops
I have a model Amana Model AKGD3060E, I believe its discontinued, gas cooktop. The ignitor doesnt work, I have to turn the gas on and ignite with a lighter then turn to the burner setting, it doesnt automatically light. What could be causing this problem, and is it an easy fix or am i better off getting a new cooktop????
Yes it should be an easy fix.
Ignitors simply go bad from time to time.
If you have a meter you can check to see if you have voltage going to the ignitor. If you do, and it isnt trying to ignite, replace the ignitor.
If you have no meter, ignitors are usually less than 30 bucks so you will not be to much in the hole by just replacing it.
If you lift the cover to access the ignitor, it should be held in by two crews, the gas tube, and a wire to the flame sensor.
Make sure you turn off all gas and electric before disassembling.
You can find ignitors at your local appliance parts supply house.
All you need is the model and serial numbers.
