Hi, You asked a very generic question but I will try to give you a good answer. If the pilot is good and you can light the burner with a match, (this checks everything else) then the most common problem would be the burner holes in front of the pilot are clogged. When cool, remove the burner and inspect the holes, any debris needs to be removed, a bent paper clip works really well. Compressed air helps as well. If there is a tube to the pilot make sure it is exactly where it belongs and that it is clean. If the match didn't light the burner or the flames is not all blue like the rest, there is something else wrong and you need to get back to us with a make and model to better help you. Make sure the burner gets seated back on the orifice correctly and best of Luck to you!

My GE Monogram gas range will not light. The igniter keeps going off but the gas will not light.


Hi, sometimes cooking spills stop the ignitor from working. Clean the cook top thoroughly and try it again. Spills can also make the ignitor go off randomly when you are not operating your cooker. Check if the ignition point where the zap comes from is not turned or bent too far from its original position. If you have a gas shut off make sure it is fully open to supply enough gas. If all else fails buy a cheap hand held ignitor to start your gas stove. If the cause is a spill which sometimes the problem can persist even after cleaning it may take a while for it to work again. If the problem is with all six burners then your ignitor probably needs replacing. When you hear the ignitor zap check to see if the electronic zap appears to jump across to the edge of the burner. If it doesn't it will not light the flame no matter how many times you try. I hope this helps you.

Can't get burners lit.


1. make sure the gas is turned on.
2. Make sure unit is pluged in.
3 make sure all burner and burner caps are aligned.

If you hear a spark and you small gas it should light.

Make sure the burner heads are not clogged.

If this top has pilot lights make sure the pilots are lit

Electric stove top


Follow the wire, It should go to a junction box within 4 feet. It may be behind a cabinet. Remove the box cover and unscrew the wire nuts. It usually uses armored wire and this is clamped to the box. Release the clamp . Turn off breaker or remove the 2 fuses first.
