Question about Kitchen Ranges

1 Answer

I cleaned my cooktop and of course disassembled the burners. Replacing them, I found that I couldn't get the ignition to shut off on two of them unless I shut the burner off completely. However, if I leave out the middle element, the ignition does shut off. I've checked that the little air-holes are free, and indeed reamed them just to make sure. I believe everything is lining up correctly.

You may have gotten the spark switches wet.
They are attached behind each surface valve.
Remove the valve knobs.
Take a hair dryer and blow hot air into each switch for several minutes to dry out the switches.

Model 790 70613210. How do I relight pilot?


Hello. There is *no* pilot on this range! You have a glow bar for both the bake and broil functions in the oven. The bake glow bar part number is (#19) 316489402(see pic 2). The ignition module(that provides the high voltage for the spark posts at each of the surface burners is (#8) 316262400. The ignition harness(that has four ignition switches daisy-chained together is (#3) 316580615. The sealed burner for the LF and LR is 316558300(quantity 2). The RF burner is 316438600. The RR burner is 316438200.
RF orifice/ignitor assembly 316536614
RR orifice/ignitor assembly 316536610
LF orifice/ignitor assembly 316536602
LR orifice/ignitor assembly 316536600
BURNER HEAD SCREWS (QUANTITY 8) 316540900
LP CONVERSION KIT (#47) 316542414
If you are hesitant about the disassembly on the range, I strongly advise calling for service--The cooktop must be removed to exposed the ignition parts. This is accomplished by releasing the burner heads from the cooktop. The mount screws on the burners are notorious for seizing and the heads breaking off on removal. If this happens, the orifice/ignitor will have to be replaced for every burner with which this occurs. It can be expensive! I hope the diagrams and part numbers help you!

Thermidor GG30 cooktop front large burner will not light, does not spark. Three other burners work fine. Need instructions how to disassemble and repair. I am handy but no experience with this item. ...


Here is the part to order.

Close the valve in the gas line connected to the Thermador oven. Unplug the cooktop's electrical cord from the wall outlet.
Remove the screws under the front edge of the Thermador cooktop below the cabinet to release the cooktop from the countertop.

Put on work gloves then raise the cooktop at an angle. Recruit a friend to hold up the appliance while you work on the igniter underneath. The igniter is a pronged strip of black metal in a housing wired with two plugs connected to powericon1.png sockets underneath the Thermador cooktop.

Disconnect the two wired plugs on the end of the igniter from the sockets.
Take out the two screws in the metal plate that hold the igniter in position under the Thermador cooktop. Pull the igniter out of the mounting bracket in the cooktop.
Hold the new igniter by the housing and insert the part into the mounting bracket. Secure it with the two screws.
Connecticon1.png the two wired plugs to the sockets. One plug is larger than the other, which makes it simple to connect them correctly.

Lower the Thermador cooktop into position on the countertop and reattach it with the screws through the underside of the front edge.
Plug inicon1.png the cooktop's power cord and open the valve in the gas line.

I have a Sterling gas cooktop, 4 burner. When I get a little moisture in one of the burners while cleaning it, the electronic ignition begins to click on all 4 burners. Unplugging the the electrical cord...


Hello & Welcome to FixYa

The clicking can only be stopped after replacing the igniter, if it tests fine then it means that the spark module is bad and needs replacement. Please get back to me if you have any other questions.

Gas burner wont come on ,it just keeps making a clicking sound but doesn`t come on fridgidair


Is the gas shut-off on? (If the problem is with all burners this is the first place to check.) Usually the shut-off is at the back of the unit and you can reach it after removing the bottom storage drawer. Make sure the burner parts are put together properly (some sealed burner units only fit one way). Check that there are no clogs in the burner slits. The clicking is the ignitor trying to ignite the gas, btw.

Additional problems are recommended for professionals. However you can look for a clogged orifice when you disassemble the burner for cleaning.

I hope this helps.

(I don't know of any range that has a separate burner shut-off (just oven shut-offs) but you might check your range.)

My spark module is probably out, but I don't know how to open up the range to look at it/replace it. How is this done?


Most newer ranges with sealed burner cooktops can be a little bit tricky to open. People have a tendency to try and lift the cooktop up like on the older ranges and end up damaging the range and causing a gas leak. The first thing to do is to unplug the range of course. Then start by removing the rear panel of the range. From there you can get a visual feel of what you are up against. With the back panel removed you should be able to see into the top part of the range. Most newer sealed burner cooktops require you to disconnect the screws holding the burner tubes to the bottom of the cooktop. If you do not remove these screws you will break the tubes when you lift the cooktop. Most of the time the screws are removable from the top at the burner heads. Once these screws are removed you should be able to lift the cooktop up. From there the ignition wiring and spark module should be available now for servicing.

Electric igniters dont shut off


Remember to turn the control knob past the "LITE" setting once the burner fires.
If that is not the issue you have one or more defective spark switches.
Each valve has its own switch wired in series with the others.

Igniter keeps sparking when it is shut off


Remove each of the burner caps from the cook top and wash in warm soapy water, using a plastic scrub brush to clean any grease or film from all surfaces.

So the same with the burner seat and ignitor knob on the cooktop.

The ignitor keeps striking because it cannot sense there is a flame.

Viking model VGR48 stovetop burners will not ignite?


First shut off the gas supply & disconnect electrical power to the range.
  • Remove all the burner control knobs, grates, burner caps & trim rings.
  • Remove the 2 screws securing the manifold panel, one from each corner. The panel will drop down.
  • Remove the screws from each manifold pipe mounting bracket. Remove 1/4 inch hex head bolt from the center of the manifold pipe. Push supply tube back to release from manifold pipe. Lift the cooktop assembly at the front to clear the 1/2 inch locator pins attached to the top of the bodyside.
  • Place cardboard between each side of cooktop & bodyside to prevent damage.
  • Move the cooktop to one side, being careful not to put stress on the wiring harness on left side.
  • Remove the wire from the electrode.
  • Remove the screw from the electrode mounting bracket to release the electrode.
You can replace the electrode & reassemble following instructions in reverse order.
