I don't believe so. It is usually electric powered. You should be able to light very carefully with a match by lighting the match first and then turning the gas on slowly with the match up close to the burner.

On my Amana gas range 2 ignighters work an 2 don't. Does that help to narrow down the problem?


Hi.

Either the single ignitors are faulty, or the ignitor sparker module must be replaced.
The sparkers are tested energizing them.
The ignitor hub module is located under the cooktop panel.
Check also the wiring harness to spark module.

Here all parts and diagrams for your range.

Regards.

if you removed the Ignitor the oven will not light it has a safety valve that operates at this same time the ignitor is trying to get hot once it reaches a certain amount of power it will open the valve for the gas.
you may need to replace your ignitor,and or your electronic control board.

Electric spark starter on one of the burner runs continuously


check the spark head on that particular burner first for dirt,they all need to be clean to recognize the flame after ignition and sense the flame to shut off the sparker module after ignition,and if not you will need to replace the spark module that fires the sparkers itself,but try cleaning sparkers and underneath where the wires connect to the sparkers first for contamination,its cheaper than starting to replace parts

Electric start stuck. I've now unplugged stove to stop the sparker. It sparks every burner when plugged back in.


First, start by abandoning FixYA, as they are totally worthless, misleading, and a complete waste of time.

Then google Gas range problems. There you will find blogs that are free, immediate, and helpful. All the valves have a springloaded switch that activates the sparker. When grease gets in the way, the spring cannot overcome the tackiness. I simply removed the valve knob in question and used a flat head screwdriver and gently eased the switch up, then used a paper towel with alcohol and glided it in around the troubled area to remove the gook. Once I got rid of the gook, the switch moved freely, as it should, and the continuous sparking ceased.

Try cleaning the sparker with file to better the spark. If you can adjust the angle of the sparker closer to the gas nozzle would help to.

the spark ignitor will not work when the power is off cause you have to have 110v to work it but you can light your top burners with a match

The sparker for the gas hob on my Baumatic B144SS is not working, yet the electricity is on and both the light and fan are working! Is there any way I can get it to work?? Cheers


You need to clean up burner and the sparker head from dirt which acts like isolator and prevent spark to jump. Burner must have metal to metal contact with the range casing in order to work. Grease, oil and burned liquids like milk act like isolators and prevent contact between burner and the casing (mass).

Just unplug the range from the wall, take off burner, scrub and wash off all the dirt from it and from its seat to the very metal. Dry it out completely and put back in place. Plug in the range and give it a try.
