Re: zanussi gas stove

Three problems with slow ignite on stoves.. first one is clean ignitors and burner caps. make sure that the caps and burners are correctly assemble. and make sure the stove is grounded correctly.. Do you flames have orange to yellow tips then there is a unburn carbon thst will form soot. soot productions is not achieving complete or efficient burning...again you may have dirty ot clogged burners..the flames should be all blue...let me know what you find out

How is the oven of the gas cooker works?

a model number and make might narrow the millions of possible answers. If the oven is gas the most likely set up is to push a button located at the bottom of the oven or a lever to tell the oven to let gas in for the pilot light if gas. Usualy the temperature knob is turned to max while pressing the button or lever while at the same time pressing the stove spark generator ignition button. when the flame lights hold the button in the oven for about 20 seconds to let the oven get use to being lit before releasing the button.

The gas range spark igniter does not work. I have a new part. How do I access the range top to replace it?

The whole top of the stove lifts off. You need to pull it out from the wall, unhook the gas, loosen and remove any screws that are on the back that hold the back to the top section. Open the stove doors and look up from the bottom to see if there are screws holding the top down, take those out and lift the top off. You can then access all the parts for the burners.

Maytag gas stove model CRG9830CAE the oven will not work

Hi. This sounds like a weak igniter, the symptoms usually are: burner won't light, or takes longer than normal to ignite the burner, may or may not smell gas in the oven, does not maintain set temperature or burner does not come on fully. On gas ovens, a glo igniter is like a light bulb, the more you cook, the faster it wears out. Bottom line, the igniter needs to be replaced. Good luck.

Old hotpoint gas stove. burners and broiler work oven does not. Could it be the ignitor and how does one fix it?

Usually ranges have a pilot at the bottom. Take the bottom panel off and there should be a button that says 'pilot' hold the button down for a few seconds to let the air purge out. Then while still holding the button down, light the pilot with a match or a lighter of some sort. Continue holding the button down for a few more seconds until the thermocouple has warmed up. (You'll know the thermocouple has warmed up if you can release the pilot button and the pilot stays lit)

Tappan gas stove

I had the same problem, and finally took the rings and the covers off of the burners. I used an old toothbrush to clean everything really good, and then used a vacuum ( or you can just close your eyes and blow really hard ) around the burners. If there is a build up of junk or if a pot has ever boiled over, sometimes junk can get lodged in the little igniter and this prevents it from lighting.

Installing WB2x9154

For women from a woman's point of view: Most if not all the screws were hex head 1/4. Have appropriate tools. A socket set will work. I like my little cordless screw driver. You will also need wire strippers and two wire nuts, they say ceramic wire nuts and electrical tape. It is also a good idea to have a someone else there for safety sake. I tipped the stove back.
Take everything our of the oven. Take big screws out at the back bottom of oven. Lift bottom of oven and push toward the back of oven. (There is a lip at the front that oven floor slides unde). Be careful as there are sharp edges all over the place once this oven bottom is off. Next unscrew the screw at the front middle of oven that holds the long burner in place. Next pull the stove drawer out and set aside. Pull stove out just enought to put large juice cans under the front legs. Way at the back you will see where the burner comes down to the gas line. There are two screws holding it to the back of the stove, remove them. Next find the two wires that come from the igniter. Unplug them. Lift out the burner. Unscrew the two screws that hold the igniter on to the burner. Carefully put the new ignitor on the burner. If the new ends do not match the old ones or if they are shorter, cut the old ones off near the old ignitor. Cut the ends off the new ignitor as far from the ignitor as you can. Clean the ends off so that about a half inch of wire is bare. Put the old ends on the new wire so that you can plug them in. Hold the two like wires so that both bare wires are parallel and screw on the wire nut. Lay it parallel to one wire and wrap electrical tape around it so that it will not pull loose. Plug in the way it was originally. Put everything back together opposite of the way you took it apart.
