Question about Kitchen Ranges
This has happened several times. After I clean the stove top I smell gas and realize that one of the burner knobs has gotten turned just slightly--not enough for the igniter to work but enough to let gas escape. This last time I left my house for an hour and came home to find my house filled with gas and my teenaged son at home, oblivious! This is a dangerous problem. What can I do?
There isn't much you can do to the stove outside of buying a stove that has standing pilots or shutting off the gas each time you leave the kitchen. This is a problem with the pilotless design. If the knob isn't turned far enough the activate the spark switch, gas can escape without being lit. Vigilance is your only answer outside of the solutions suggested.

Ray, sometimes the burners get gunked up. Remove the cap and burner and see if the small orifice that is located by the spark electrode is clogged. Clean it out with a paper clip. Make sure the burner cap has good contact with the burner. Catriver..post back.

Your problem is not the igniter itself, but the burner switch that controls the igniter. All the igniters get their power from one spark module that is mounted somewhere in back of the oven. That's why you are able to get all the igniters to spark with only one burner control turned on. This is normal. That is also why you are able to light the burner in question buy turning on another burner. The spark is being provided by a switch that is working. To answer your question: the igniter is removable, but I don't think it's necessary. Cleaning them generally doesn't make them work better. I would check the wiring from the spark module to the burner switch and/or replace the switch. I hope this helps.

no gas flow sounds like a bad gas regulato on the stove. as for the 5 year old ge profile with ignitors not working, you need a part called a spark modual

its possible your gas regulator is bad or the gas line to the ignitor is stopped up look at the line and see if some type of food has blocked the outlet

I have a GE Gas Stove XL44 the stove top buners don't light by themselves without manual lighting. When I turn on the buner knob the buner doesn't click. Also I used my self- cleaning oven for the first time and stopped it before the time was up after that is when the stove top buners wouldn't light by theirselves.
