Re: Top Burner Ignitors

This is real quite simple. You just grab the electrode top and pull up while twisting back and forth. Be careful to pull up slowly. It will pull out and then you can detach the wire by pulling off and reverse order to install new electrodes.

Top Burner Ignitors

Remove the burner grates. Remove the caps off of the burners. You'll see three screws on each burner, remove these and lift the burner heads out. Now you can lift the cook top up (like lifting the hood on a car) and have access to the wiring for the igniters. The part number you need is #WB13K10003. These are kinda pricey at ~$42.00 ea. at your local appliance parts retailer.

We are cranking up this BRAND NEW Vulcan flat top. Weh have the convection oven below up and running, but we can't even see a pilot light for the flat top. Advice anyone? Culinary-yours Chef Geir

older ovens have pilots but the newer machines are electronic ignition,there are ignitors in the oven and electrodes or ignitors on the top burners,when you turn the knob for the burner you should hear a clicking sound and see a spark around the burner,that's what lites the burner,the gas comes in and the spark ignites it,i don't know much about your machine but it can't be any different from other stoves.if none are sparking there should be a spark module in there or they could have separate modules,if you send the full model number i can look it up for you

I have a Whirlpool Super Capacity 465 Gas Range. However all the burners on top will not click to ignite. I turned the breaker off and that back on again and it worked for a day or two. Now nothing will...

Power for the ignitors goes straight from the input power to the burner switches then on to the ignition module. The burner switches are in series parallel. Any one of them actuated will provide power to the ignition module.

See the schematic in this pdf file page 22 but page labeled pg 20:$FILE/4322089.pdf

When the ANY burner control is turned on all 4 ignitors do cycle.

Does the oven burner light? If not you most likely have a bad ignition control unit. Item 35 this link:

If the oven burner lights then you most likely have a wiring problem to the burner controls. There is ONE power lead that if it comes loose will cause all of the ignitors not to work.

You can use the https:// manual link above to gain access to the top of your oven. See page 15 of the .pdf file.

The igniton system is explained starting on page 19 of the pdf file.

Thanks for choosing FixYa.

Electronic ignitors won't stop clicking

Pull the burner caps, etc off the stove and completely dry the area ..Be sure to inspect each ignitor contact for cleanliness as well. If the ignitors have soapy buildup or water, around them, they can act like this.
You should be able to pull the burner caps and flame diffusers off and clean with a paper towel, and if needed, a light scouring sponge. Be careful not to scratch the surfaces, but scour the top of the ignitors carefully if you need to clean them.

Viking gas stove top ignitors sparking incorrectly

all ignitors spark at the same time no matter which burner is turned on. If you are having trouble with one burner not lighting try cleaning around the ignitor with a small screw driver so the spark has a good path to ground.

Stove top burners won't light.

Susan, there is no pilot flame on the Spectra models of ranges. However, the possibility that the electronic ignitors have gotten soaked and are shorting out is quite likely.

You should disconnect the power to the oven and remove the burner grates, burner caps, and the burner assembly cores to expose the ignitor posts. Check to see if there is any remaining water there and clean off and dry the ignitors and burners completely, as they might have something on them causing them to short out against the stove top, rather than spark properly, as they should.

Once you've cleaned and replaced the stove top parts, restore power and try to light each burner, one at a time. If none of them spark or light, then you need to check to make sure you haven't tripped a breaker for the stove or a GFCI outlet that the outlet that the stove might be plugged into, somewhere in the Kitchen.

Hope you find this Very Helpful and best regards!
