Question about Kenmore 30 in. 42701 / 42702 / 42709 Electric Cooktop

Kenmore Elite 30" gas cooktop installed. Large right front burner

We installed a 30" Kenmore Elite Stainless gas cooktop. When we first turned in on all burners lit normal.  Second and all subsequent attempts result in all burners lighting normal except the large right front burner.  The ignitor is sparking and gas is coming out of burner but burner is not lighting. Gas supply is plenty adequate, it just seams that gas is not coming in contact with the ignitor spark. Any help would be appreciated.

There are a series of holes in the burner leading down from the main flame area to the pilot tube, ensure the holes are not plugged/restricted.

My Kenmore propane fueled gas oven gives off a powerful strong smell every time it is started. The burners on top do not. Is there any way I can correct this?


this is because the gas is on full before the oven lights
IT is an explosive situation and should be quickly corrected by an accredited gas fitter
the soot indicates an incorrect burn ratio and that will be the major part of the problem

The igniter on the right front burner of my GE Gas cooktop does not work....I must use a lighter or match to ignite....What can I do? There is no clicking sound when I turn on the burner?


the very first thing i would do here is to check the ignitor itself
under the head cap you should see two screws, once those are out you will be able to lift the burner plate, lift the burner plate, you will see, or should see the ignitor, and the wire.
i check this for voltage by unplugging the ignitor and olding the wire close to a ground, the metal body is good. Turn on the ignitor, becareful it is live. yhou shgould see a spark comming from the wire
if not check to make sure that wire is in position and on the spark module
if you do see a spark this way, just order the replacement ignitor
and install it when it arrives
