Get a small wire brush and scrub around the ignitor real good so that it can get a good ground.

THREE BURNERS DO NOT IGNITE AUTOMATICLY ON MY SPECTRA GAS RANGE


Have your licensed repairman clean, adjust, reinstall or replace the the ground plain plate on your stove. If dirt or grease managed to get between the plate and ground it can inhibit the spark ignighter from throwing a spark accross the ignitor gap. No spark = no light (flame). Yep just like the sparkplugs in a car.

Ge Spectra Xl44-three of 4 gas burners will not ignite without a match.


Electric gas igniters sometimes get stuck in one position causing a clicking sound. The clicking sound that you hear is the electric arc that is pulsing from the igniter conductor (wire) to ground (the gas burner). It receives power from the electrical outlet that the stove is plugged into.
Residue from food and sometimes cleaning products may be preventing the igniter from producing a spark (Arc) to the base of the burner. This is a common problem that occurs when the stove has been cleaned or food is allowed to build up. Make sure that the igniter and the burner base are clean and dry. This will help with proper operation. Oven cleaner and a small tooth brush may be used to accomplish this. Another problem with ignition may occur if you have too little (touching) or too much space between the igniter and the base of the burner; it will prevent the burner from igniting. You should only have a little more space than the thickness of a nickel between the burner base and the igniter. A good “blue” arc from the igniter to the burner base is optimal. If this doesn’t work, you may need to replace the electric igniter module. Good luck.

We spilled liquid into the gas burner by accident and it won't stop clicking. We can't find how or where to unplug it? GE PROFILE GAS STOVETOP RANGE


Won't stop clicking?
When?
Is it clicking constantly or only when you attempt to ignite a burner?
Normally the clicking can be traced to the electronic ignition that activates when you turn the burner on.

Regardless if you need to turn it off but do not have easy access to the back of the unit, you can always shut it off at the circuit breaker located in the breaker/fuse box.

Hope this helps but if not just let me know.

The three burners on the top of the range will not light.


You either have an issue with gas flow from the control valves or with the piezoelectric gas igniters. Turn the knob to low and try lighting the burners by hand. If they work, then your problem is not gas flow but the ignition. Turn the knobs to light and see if each burner clicks and you see sparks at the igniters. If you are not seeing a spark, try cleaning up the igniter tips. If that doesn't do it, it is probably time to call the service technician (or the Hotpoint Customer Service hotline).

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)

Viking 4 burner gas range


if you are not hearing the faintest sound of clicking / sparking you could have a bad spark module or even bad burner switches i doubt that all switches went bad at the same time but its possible unplug oven check wireing to switches and spark module if you pull your burner knob off thats the switch starring at you follow wires and check for any loose connections
