If you have a push button sparker the wire may be off or the sparker may be worn. You can check for spark when it is dark out. If you dont think you have spark then try to light the burner the "old school" way just hold a match or flame to the white area and then turn and hold the gas knob. If you can light it the old school way then its your spark. I would remove the sparker (unscrew the plastic nut on it remove the wire if its stll on) and test it on your hand. If the sparker works you will know because you will get a shock from the end of it. If you dont get a shock then you need to buy a new one. I hope this helps

Dacor cooktop igniter clicks but burner does not ignite. This is true for all burners. after repeated attempts the burners will start - What can I try?


Take a hairpin or a toothpick and clean the hole near the igniter so that the maximum amount of gas can flow to the spark is what I would try.

Infared burners ignitor won't work


Mike, have you replaced the battery in the igniter button ye? That's the first place to start troubleshooting. Be sure you install the new battery facing the same direction as the old battery. Also, check the interior contacts of the battery holder for corrosion. If you find any, use a Q-Tip sprayed with a little WD40 to clean it.

If the above doesn't solve the problem, trace the igniter wire from the igniter button to the spark igniter at the burner for damaged wire or a loose connection.

And finally, try match lighting the infrared burners to make sure that they are getting an adequate flow of gas.

Hope this helped you t troubleshoot and solve the problem. Happy Grilling and thanks for choosing FixYa.

Sounds like the offending burners need to be removed, checked thoroughly for clogs and particularly the venturi valve on each burner. And while you have them out, remove the burner orifice of each burner and look for clogs.

Hope this helps you to further troubleshoot and solve the problem. Happy Grilling!!

Dacor gas range. I'm trying to figure out why it


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.
