Top burners will not light

I do not know how to get to the igniter for the top burners. How do you lift up the top? The first thing I checked was the electrical receptacle -it had power to it and the range plug was all the way in.

SOURCE: Stove burner igniter does not work.

Your problem is not the igniter itself, but the burner switch that controls the igniter. All the igniters get their power from one spark module that is mounted somewhere in back of the oven. That's why you are able to get all the igniters to spark with only one burner control turned on. This is normal. That is also why you are able to light the burner in question buy turning on another burner. The spark is being provided by a switch that is working. To answer your question: the igniter is removable, but I don't think it's necessary. Cleaning them generally doesn't make them work better. I would check the wiring from the spark module to the burner switch and/or replace the switch. I hope this helps.

SOURCE: Gemini Range Dual Burner

Unfortunately, you cannot repair one element of a dual burner. It all comes as one unit. When one portion of a dual or triple element goes bad, you must replace the whole element. I believe the part number is 1032746 and runs about $70. You will have to lift the glass top to access the burner elements. If you decide to pursue this on your own follow these steps: 1. Unplug range and/or turn off main breaker. 2. Open oven door to access screws under front edge of cooktop. Remove two screws and the top should tilt up. 3. The top will not stay up on it's own, so you will need some assistance holding it up. Some ranges have a couple of disconnect plugs that you can unplug, so you remove the entire top and lay it somewhere to work on. If this is the case with yours (as I suspect it is), lay some soft towels down on the kitchen table or counter top and lay the cooktop upside down. This will make it much easier to work on. 4. Remove affected element by disconnecting the wires first. You may want to write down how they came off, so you can be sure to reconnect them in the right order. 5. Remove mounting brackets holding element in place. Pay particular attention to the numbering scheme on the bottom of the element and where the brackets are mounted. The new element usually doesn't come with new brackets which means you have to take the brackets off the old element and put them on the new element. Make sure you install them in the same numbered holes as they were located before. 6. Reconnect wires and reinstall cooktop, making sure you reconnect the disconnect plugs if equipped. Now, be careful when working on the cooktop while it is upside down. Make sure you don't apply too much pressure on the glass or you could crack it. Also, use extreme care NOT to touch the element surface as the oils from you hands can cause hot spots and effectively ruin it. The bake light material in which the element is mounted is also very fragile. DO NOT put to much pressure on it or it may crack and break. Once you get the cooktop reinstalled and power reapplied, op test it to make sure BOTH elements are working. It is normal to see a little bit of sparking at first with new elements and/or an odor. Test the entire range of the element and make sure it regulates like it should. I hope this helps you.

SOURCE: electric igniters dont shut off

Remember to turn the control knob past the "LITE" setting once the burner fires.
If that is not the issue you have one or more defective spark switches.
Each valve has its own switch wired in series with the others.

remove 4 screws under the trim that surrounds the burner knob panel. They are on the underside and you will be looking straight up to see them.

Slide the trim down and off after removing the screws.

remove the burner grills and caps

remove the 4 brass venturis and you will then be able to lift the cooktop

the valves are easy to get to

SOURCE: I have two burners that don't ignite

We had two that stop working also. If we used a lighter to light it then it would work. We had pots boil over. When the repair man came over to tell us we need a new control panel he fixed the burners. I would call a repairman to be safe.

How do i lift the top of a frigidaire range lggf3043kfm?


Lift the caps off of the burners and you'll see a couple of screws holding each burner in place on the igniter orifices. Remove those screws and remove the burners. I can't remember if there were more screws under the burners, or not, but if there are, remove those screws. Then, the top lifts right off.

Top Burner Ignitors


Remove the burner grates. Remove the caps off of the burners. You'll see three screws on each burner, remove these and lift the burner heads out. Now you can lift the cook top up (like lifting the hood on a car) and have access to the wiring for the igniters. The part number you need is #WB13K10003. These are kinda pricey at ~$42.00 ea. at your local appliance parts retailer.

Igniter switch on top burner will not shut off


try thoroughly cleaning the burners, particularly the holes in the ring that the gas come through. The gas come through to heat the ignitor so that the ignitor knows to stop trying to light the burner ; if the holes are clogged the ignitor doesn't heat.
The burner is easily disassembled from the top by removing a thin bolt, and you can clear the holes with a paper clip.

Amana gas range args7650e makes ticking sound, but does not ignite on one burner


Do not try and lift the top. You will break the gas lines. Use a small nail or pin to clean the hole beside the igniter on that burner that will not light.

I havef a KitchenAid Gas Range Model KGSS907... and one of the ignitors on one of the burners is not sparking. I tried to take the stove top off to check the wire to the ignitor but don't see how to...


Hello,

Typically the burner come off by removing the burner caps and inside the burners are 2 screws that hold the burner base to the top..yes you could swap igniters on all burners they will be the same. If by swapping the igniters it still doesnt work the things that could be the problem are;

the spark module espically if the igniter that doesnt work on that burner suddendly work on a different burner

the spark switch on the gas valve for that burner..typically all burners spark when one it turned on but the only one that lights is one that has gas flow to it..so turning on a different burner first and leave it set to light setting by turning on the one that doesnt light it will light if that spark switch is the problem

of course a cracked igniter

a broken wire from the spark module to that igniter taht doesnt work..its not that uncommon that the insulation will sometimes wear off a wire off so the electric that should be going from the spark module to the igniter is instead being grounded by that wire touching the metal on the frame uninsulated

Good luck,i hope i have been able to help you fix your range,
GENE

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

Getting to the Pilot


Your model JGBP28DED2WH uses spark ignition on the stove top burners, and a glow bar ignitor, part number WB2X9154 for the oven and broiler. To get to the bake ignitor if oven will not light: Take the racks out of the oven. Remove oven floor by removing two screws at back of oven floor and lifting floor. Remove the square metal flame spreader to get to the burner / ignitor assembly. (note: The ignitor may still glow when you try it, but usually is still the problem)

Replace burner spark ignitor?


Electric igniters are usually very simple installs since they usually only come with a common and hot wire, and the igniter clips on to the burners right near the burner top for ignition. The easiest way a DIYer can do this themselves is to slowly take apart the current ignitor after lifting the top of the range up and taking note of every thing's placement. If you have the direct OEM part, then it either work or will not, based upon the fact that it's either the ignitor or the switch for it that has gone bad.

To test if your igniter has gone bad, remove it completely. (it should only be a small cylinder with two prongs, and two wires coming out the other side) Be sure not to strip any screws as heat from the oven will make them hard to remove. From there, you'll need to jump the connection on the top of the igniter with a conducting piece (ie: aluminum foil or wire), then test the common/hot wires with your circuit tester or volt meter. A solid tone or light means that your igniter is good, and the problem lies somewhere else.

There are several screws under the front lip of top of the range. You will have to open the oven door to see them. Once the screws are removed, the top should just lift up. Of course, if it has been a couple of years, grease and oil can creep into the seams along the sides and cause the top to stick. If this is the case, carefully take a putty knife along the side seams and lift up at the same time on the front. The top should open. Now, if ALL your burners are not lighting, that sounds like a bad spark module. Do you hear a clicking noise when you try to light any of the top burners? If not, the spark module not the igniters, is the likely suspect. The spark module provides a voltage to ALL the igniters simultaneously. Removing the top will not be necessary if this is the case. The spark module is usually located in the back of the oven cavity under bottom pan of the oven. Or, it may be located behind the panel in the rear of the stove. Let me know if this helps you.
