Question about KitchenAid KGRA806PSS Gas Kitchen Range

Open Question

Triple burner on gas stove will not ignite.

I have a Kitchenaid gas range model no. KGRA806PSS.

The other burners ignite and the ignition spark works well. The problem occurs only with the triple tier burner. It malfunctions every so often. Sometimes it lights fine, sometimes it will only light if another burner is lit as well, sometimes the problem just goes away after trying and scrubbing the burner base and the cap.

The thing is that the burner base and cap never seem to have anything on them so I don't see how scrubbing it helped. I wonder if the gas tube has something in it? It also seems that not enough gas is coming to the burner as sometimes it will only light if another burner is already lit.

Another issue is that the large burner base seems a bit loose. Would that interfere with the gas coming the burner? It hardly seems possible since the gas comes in a tube.

Do we have to remove the base and drill out the holes or buy a new one? What do you suggest?

SOURCE: Gas Range, trouble igniting

It is likely that the ignitor needs to be replaced. If the range does not sense the correct amount of resitance in the ignitor it turns the gas valve off. When the ignitor is starting to fail the problem is intermittent, so the range turns on and off as you have described.

Hello,

Unfortunitly i myself a tech of 30 years has no idea what the code 0164 means and have only ever see error codes with E/F so on that sorry no help. HOWEVER having replaced the spark module and EOC i would suspect the only thing else that could be causing the oven/broiler to not ignite is the electrodes(igniters) and would go ahead and replace those as well.

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,

Kitchenaid gas stove left back burner won't light. hear clicking


I have one of the kitchenaide gas ranges and if the burner cap is not set on PERFECTLY straight, the gas doesn't flow properly and will not ignite. Try lifting and replacing the cap back down on the burner and see if this solves it.
