Hotpoint RGB745 Burner Problems- Unique, needs help

I have a hotpoint RGB745. 2 of my burners were not working unless i lit them with a match- a third burner worked, but had really weird, violent flames that sounded like wind. I cleaned around the electrode with a q-tip, and i used a twist tie to make sure the small holes in the burner heads were clear. I also used the twist tie, gently, on the holes where the gas comes from. I did this to all of them. Now, i've run out of matches. So, i turned on the broiler, and lit a small wooden stick, and i've tried lighting each burner that way since the ignitor is not working. What this has accomplished is the following; two of the burners light when lighted with this makeshift "match"- but, when i turn the knob from the ignition to high (or medium, or low) the flame goes out. no more than one will stay lit at once. I see sparks at the ignitor when i try to ignite but it won't ignite the flame. And, when i light it with my "match" as described above, the flame is thin and about 6-8 inches high. Kind of like a taper candle. Also, when i shut the door of my oven (broiler was on, remember?) the flame went out. Help?

Not sure, but sounds like you may have a gas pressure problem or the stove is set-up for the wrong type of gas.

My hotpoint. Has burner activity. The electronic oven will not light, makes no sound when the temp knob is depressed, nor with a match under the burner will it light. Makes no sound through trying each...

Is your igniter glowing when oven turned on.Look for bright orange glow near burner.If yes ,and no ignition,then igniter is weak and needs replacing.No glow at all,then a voltage test at the igniter needs to be done to see if it might be thermostat problem. Very common for igniters to go.Most likely cause.

I have a hotpoint stove and the burner in the oven won't come on, the heat element lights up but the burner won't light whats wrong with my oven? susan

Even though your igniter is lighting up it probably needs replaced. They become weak and wont pull enough amps to open the gas valve.

Old hotpoint gas stove. burners and broiler work oven does not. Could it be the ignitor and how does one fix it?

Usually ranges have a pilot at the bottom. Take the bottom panel off and there should be a button that says 'pilot' hold the button down for a few seconds to let the air purge out. Then while still holding the button down, light the pilot with a match or a lighter of some sort. Continue holding the button down for a few more seconds until the thermocouple has warmed up. (You'll know the thermocouple has warmed up if you can release the pilot button and the pilot stays lit)

Top right burner on hotpoint gas range doesn't light

there is a spark ignition in the middle between the front and back for the left side and one on the right side. When it was cleaned i bet that the spark ignitor was slightly bent towards the front the gap is too big to fire the rear burner...the ignitor is very similar as the spark made in those push down lighters. so its safe to play around and adjust them as needed to make them work...Go ahead and take it apart and tinker with adjusting it...until you get both front and rear burners running again the way it was before.( peek at the otherside as a reference and try to make it match)
I hope this helps you out a little bit 8-)
