Igniters won't turn on & unwanted flammes

Sorry I am new and am not sure where to ask my question. I am not even sure where to find the answer to this email. Suddenly I don't have any sparks coming out of my Ge gas range. i think that is is the spark module since I didn't see any broken wire. Does it make sense? Now a more serious problem. When I used the front burner the rear burner randomly will lit. I am not sure where the gas is coming from or how it lit istelflp up, please help Thank you someone in distress

    Actually I didn't say that the rear burner's igniter is working. That was problem number two.
    I know that the spark module is bad because I have no sparks at all anywhere problem number 1

    Problem number 2 is that when I use a match to lit the front burner
    after a while the rear burner lit itself up. Flamme are actually present for a 1-2 second and there are gone, but the igniter still doesn't work.I am not sure how can the gas go through the rear burner when the knob is off. I didn't smell any leak??

    sorry If I did not express myself correctly.
    thank you for replyingm though

    I love Mr Bean

The igniter is usually located behind the switch--it gives off a spark and such spark triggers the flame. I often adjusted its spark to directly hit the gas passage way but i wouldnt recommend it. You burner may also be too dirty- this may be the reason why you are seeing flames behind the switch( behind the switch is the initial gas passageway)... Do get an expert to do it!!!!

You say you have no sparks coming from your gas range, but your rear burner is lighting. That doesn't quite make sense. If some of your burners are lighting, then the problem can't be with the spark module. The spark module sends a spark to ALL the igniters at the same time. That is, EACH burner switch, when turned to ignite, will cause a spark to go to ALL the burner igniters at the same time. Just watch the next time you turn one of your burner switches on, and you'll see a spark at all the burners simultaneously. This is normal. I suspect that you have a bad igniter switch or wiring harness. For example, if you have a front burner that won't light, but WILL light when you turn on another burner, the spark is being provided by a working burner switch. This is also normal. Now, am I assuming that your back burner will not light properly, but will light if you use the front burner? If so, the burner switch for the rear burner is probably bad, or the wiring harness has a break somewhere. Now...if you have no sparks, as you say, but randomly a burner will light, then I would suspect a bad spark module. I hope I'm not confusing you here. In a nutshell: One burner doesn't work, but all others do - bad burner switch, or wiring harness. No burners light, or light randomly - spark module. I hope this helps you.

    Okay...that is odd. Yes, gas COULD go thru to the rear burner IF the gas valve on the switch wasn't shutting properly. But, you mentioned you didn't smell any gas. Normally, the tale tell sign of a gas leak is that familiar nasty odor. I would get some soapy water (dish detergent works well) and a small brush and dab it around the burner with the gas valve off to see you get any bubbles forming anywhere. This is the best way I know of to test for a leak without employing the services of the gas company or buying expensive test equipment used to "sniff" out gas leaks. You could have a slight leak that doesn't get your attention until enough gas has built up to ignite. In any case, this condition is not safe and if you can't resolve it on your own, shut the gas off and call your local gas company. I wish I had a better solution for you, but I hope this helps.

    PS Glad you love Mr. Bean...I do too.

Stuck eldorado key in DTS ignition now car won't start


Make sure your steering wheel isn't locked. Sometimes a key won't turn until you jiggle the wheel while trying to turn the key.

1989 wrangler 2.5L won't turn off with new switch


Hi there:Bad installing or a problem with the connections. The most likely problem is a bad ignition switch. To find out for sure, remove the plastic covers over the steering column and remove the 2 screws holding the ignition switch in place. Make sure the mechanism coming from the key is turning the ignition switch. If the mechanism works fine, replace the ignition switch.

I would suggest removing the ignition switch and checking the mechanism in the column to make sure it is actually turning the ignition switch off.


You could have a wiring problem, you will have to follow all the wiring from the ignition switch down the column and into the harness, there is sure to be a short in the wiring harness, that is if as you said you replaced the ignition switch for a new one.

To test this, remove the plastics around the steering column and pull out the wiring plug to the ignition switch, if the ignition turns off you have another faulty ignition switch if it stays on wiring harness has shorted out.


Hope this helps; also keep in mind that your feedback is important and I`ll appreciate your time and consideration if you leave some testimonial comment about this answer.

Thank you for using FixYa, have a nice day.

Camera shows flashing H in rear screen and won't wind on film


Unfortunately on your model the flashing H means there's an electrical fault which needs repair.

In practice, it's an old obsolete model and few spare parts will be available. Any kind of professional repair will cost far more than the camera is worth. But as almost all 35mm compacts are now virtually worthless it means that you can get fantastic models for free or very cheap. All of mine have come for free via FreeCycle, Freegle, and by just asking people I know as most have unused and unwanted cameras lying around. Even the superb and very under-rated Canon Sureshot Classic 120 which has one of the sharpest lenses ever put onto a 35mm compact can be had for zilch as the batteries cost more than the camera is worth (new batteries: about £10).

Sorry this is not the answer you hoped for, but I hope that it enables you to fix the problem in a different way at almost no cost.

My 92 kawasaki zx6 won't turn offer unless I pop the clutch


You either have a bad switch, a hot wire short feeding unwanted juice to the ignition system, or the pistons and cylinder head need to be de-carboned. Hot spots of carbon are continuing to ignite the gas even without a spark. Be sure the spark plugs are correct > NGK CR9E or use NGK C9E. Too hot a plug, ( i.e. cr7e ), will make the engine run at a higher temp. Please rate my answer. Thanks.

HELLO MR BEAN


These problems are difficult to diagnose sometimes without being there to actually see what is going on. Now...let me see if I can remember all of this. You replaced the spark module and have a spark at each burner now. You also checked for gas leaks and didn't find any. Now, you're telling me that the oven isn't working? Most oven igniters I'm familiar with are the glow bar type. Which means they don't spark at all. They glow to a certain current potential (roughly 2.7 to 3.3 amps) before the gas valve is opened and begins to flow. Once gas flow is achieved, the igniter ignites the gas. Now, when these igniters get old, they become weak and will not provide enough current to open the gas valve, or, they take a long time to ignite. If this is your case, then you need to replace the oven igniter. Does this help you? PS Keep in mind, some ovens have two separate igniters. One for the broiler and one for bake. Does the broil function work? If so, the oven switch is good.
