    there could be 2 or 3 rings going at one time and not all will stop burning maybe one will remain lighting

  • fergus Jan 05, 2013

    they can be at the front or back it doesn't matter there is no commonality always irregular? It is natural gas burner and regulator.

If your top burners are not lighting or will not work, it is possible that the burners have become dirty or wet. Please follow the troubleshooting directions below before calling service:

  1. Turn you burner to the Lite position:

    If you hear clicking or sparking, go to Step 2.

    If you do not, check your circuit breakers. If the circuit breaker is ok, we recommend that you schedule service by calling 1-800-432-2737 or schedule service online.

  2. Clean the burner and electrode:

    First remove the burner grate, cap, and head. Use a needle or paper clip to poke through the holes on the burner head. Re-assemble and try the burner.

    Remove the burner grate, cap, and head. Even if it looks clean, wipe the tip of the electrode with a clean, dry paper towel and PRESS IT DOWN. Re-assemble and try the burner, again.

    Check to see if the burner works, If not, then go to Step 3.

  3. Re-assemble - Make sure that each burner top matches its burner bottom. The burner top will lay flat if put on correctly.

    Check to see if the burner works, If not, then go to Step 4.

  4. The spark igniter is operating properly, but the burner is still not lighting. At this point, we would recommend that you schedule service by calling 1-800-432-2737 or schedule service online.

SOURCE: I have a 6 burner

Dear Kathynearing,

Hi. I have experience cooking in a burner like that it keeps on burning coz the ignition coil was press by your switch knob coz the spring was stack up try to release it so that it will not be ignited all the time when your cooking. This should be ignited at once. If it gives light already it should be released. Please reply if you have solved the problem so that I can give you more advices.

Right side burner will not ignite. Pilot flame is on.


Hello Paul;

My name is Peter. I am a retired field service appliance technician.

You did not provide a model number or your range. This is located on a metal tag either on the face of the oven after you open the door, or on the side of the door.

Each burner probably has a individual flow control valve to adjust the flame. This is a low probably, but still could be the problem.

Let's assume you can light the bad burner with a match:

You either have individual spark ignitors at each burner, or a multi-spark module in the upper left top back of your range. This controls all 4 burners.

Go into the following website, put in your model number and find your individual burner ignitor or the spark module. Record the part number and going into the web and search the part. Do not purchase from Sears unless you want to pay 2 or 3 times the price. Also, consider used parts.

This is a easy fix if you have basic tools. Turn the gas supply off. Then turn on the burners to bleed the system from gas. Then kill the power to the range - circuit breaker or electrical cord before you begin the work.

So when I try to light one burner - it lights up. After 20-30 seconds, there is stlll a clicking sound then the burner goes off. I cannot figure this out, can anyone help? Really appreciate it. Thanks


It probably has a flame failure device..
This is to cut off the gas if the flame goes out..
When you light the burner, the flame heats a sensor which keeps the gas on, if this is faulty, the gas will go out.

No matter which knob I turn on, all 4 ignitors spark,


There is no fix. This is normal. All 4 ignitors will spark but the gas will only go to the burner where the gas is active.

Ignitor glows but short cycles


Ignitors don't "blow flames". But a defective ignitor can glow but not draw enough current to allow the gas valve to open to the burners.
Replace the ignitor. It's the "weakest link" and most likely part to wear out through use in the ignition system.

Kenmore lp gas sealed burner stove,when opening or closing the oven door the top burners decrease in flame size and go out frequently.


This seems like a pressure regulator / flow problem. If you are running more than one appliance from bottled gas this can occurr if the supply pipe is not of sufficient size. When 'wafting the door' you are increasing air flow to the oven burners which in turn will consume more gas to balance the burn, this starves other burners that are running at the time.
Cure; increase regulator pressure (remove the foil cover to expose the screw) with the top burners alight adjust the screw 1/4 turn at a time until the flames are bright blue at heart and organge tipped. Increase as much as you can without the falme distorting away from blue/orange. If this doesn't cure it you may need to increase the size of your supply pipe to 15mm so that the volume of gas is greater and then split it off to normal lpg pipe to each apliance thereby creating a more even flow of supply. Often a system using say heating and gas fire is perfectly fine but add another appliance like a cooker or change your cooker to one which has more powerful burners and you can expose weaknesses in the flow system.

Gas ignitors continue to spark every 5 seconds in off position


try unplugging the unit over night, itspossible that by you cleaning the tops, the electrodes got wet, falsley sparkin, when the water dries out it should stop, and no not dangerous in any way, only annoying to listen to

Gas Burner ignitor is not working


Yes it should be an easy fix.
Ignitors simply go bad from time to time.

If you have a meter you can check to see if you have voltage going to the ignitor. If you do, and it isnt trying to ignite, replace the ignitor.
If you have no meter, ignitors are usually less than 30 bucks so you will not be to much in the hole by just replacing it.

If you lift the cover to access the ignitor, it should be held in by two crews, the gas tube, and a wire to the flame sensor.

Make sure you turn off all gas and electric before disassembling.

You can find ignitors at your local appliance parts supply house.
All you need is the model and serial numbers.

Make sure nothing is blocking burner tubes and burner tops. All holes need to be free and clear. If that dont work replace your inlet valve were your gas lin goes in.
