Question about KitchenAid Cooktops
I've got a KitchenAid KGCT305BBL 4 burner gas-on-glass cooktop and the left front burner has stopped working completely. The other three work fine. This one does nothing when I turn it's knob. Unlike the others, which you can hear the gas flowing and the snap of the electric ignitor. This one just does nothing, no sound of gas flowing, nor any snap of the ignitor. Any clues as to how to go about fixing it?
It is strange that you have no gas and no spark! if you held a match to the burner and turned the burner valve on it would lite di spite a failed ignitor,but for it not to lite, the burner valve[its what the knob attaches too] would have to be blocked[thats rare]or ........i got it .....the knob is broken.thats the only thing the burner valve and the spark ignitor have in common.try a knob from another burner................again.you have spark,because others are working.spark on troubled burner would work if valve blocked at orifice outlet,and if spark failed you would still get gas they work independent of each other,[but in unison].thats why im thinking knob.its the item that works both .when you turn the knob it opens the gas valve and as the gas valve rotates by turning the knob it activates or turns the spark switch so it closes the curcit allowing the electricty to the spark moduel.hey i hope that helps a little. God bless ,tom
