    I have the same problem, except when I use a differnt burner to ignite...all burners spark. Only one switch will not cause a spark. How do I fix one burner's dial to spark?

Either a foreign object is blocking it, Or the gap for the spark may be set too little or too much, try adjusting the gap. Let us know :-)

I have a 20 year old Ruud gas water heater with a power vent. The model is PVP 40-1. Sometimes it will not heat water. The power vent is running but neither the ignitor or the burner is. If I turn off the...

My guess is the ignitor needs replacing (old and has built up too much internal resistance). Even though it still works at times, I would suspect it first, even if it glows during an ignition cycle.

I would like a karcher instruction manual for a HDS650 pressure washer

I believe the HDS sends spark to the ignitor any time the machine is on ( hot or cold) You should hear the crackle of the ignitor in the burner area. Perhaps the ignitor rods are not properly aligned. Perhaps your ignitor coil is bad. There are several safety switches and the thermostat that would keep the burner from firing if they are bad. There is a pressure switch that turns on and off the motor for hot or cold operation. That is apparently working. I think there is a flow switch that turns off the burner. The thermostat might not be opening and closing contacts and that will keep the burner from working. I believe there is a high temperature safety switch as well.

Amana furnace. The furnace goes through the cycle but wont ignite. I have already checked the ignitor.

Try blowing out the jet Burners with compressed air especially the one nearest the Ignitor. Right through where the gas comes in. These can get dusty and cause ignition failures. Also check to see if the Ignitor is in the path of the burner and has not somehow gotten bent. 100 or so ohms on the Ignitor should be good.

The ignitor keeps sparking and won't stop.Do not

First of all, the model number is under the cooktop bottom, and secondly, this can happen due to the burner switches got wet somehow. Best thing to do is to unplug unit for 6-12 hours, allow to dry, then re-plug unit back in, this should be enough time to dry out the burner switches.
Good luck

Igniter doesn't spark on only one burner

There are three parts to the ignition system typically.

The ignitor that is either in the burner or outside the burner.

The spark ignitor switch that is located on the burner control. (( one for each control ))

The spark modual. the modual creates the hi-voltage spark.

If the burner that does not ignight with its control does not spark but does spark with one of the other controls then the spark ignitor control switch is bad.
You can test it with one of the other burner control knobs. (( just try a working burnder and when it clicks look at the bad burners ignitor and look for the spark.))

If the bad burner that wont ignight does not spark then either your modual is bas or the ignitor is shorting out.

If you see any little spark but it does not spark from point A to Point B like the other burners then your ignitor is shorting and should be replaced.

If your ignitor is ceramic and it is cracked, then it should be replaced.

My 4 burner downunder gas BBq is only lighting 2 of the auto ignited burners???

If 2 of the burners are lighting and 2 are not, you could have loose wires either at the electrode or the ignitor, the wires could be bad, or the 2 electrodes could be bad. If you can get to the back of the ignitor, you can switch the wires around on the back of the ignitor and see if this affects which burners light.

When I try to light my jenn air gas cook top it clicks but will not light. But it will light with a match

Your electronic ignitor is bad. You can buy a replacement ignitor where you bought your grill. Just about any hardware store will have a replacement ignitor. They are real easy to replace. There is 1 wire to the back of the ignitor. There is a retaining nut on the switch. Remove the switch and replace with new switch. Plug wire into ignitor, Turn gas on and test ignitor.

Happy Grilling

Not igniting

Probably broken switch. or perhaps broken ignitor circuit. If only one burner is broken is then it is switch. if they all don't work check the ignigitor circuit.

Clicking noise on cooktop even when all burners ignite

I have a viking gas cooktop. The ignitor on one of my front burners wouldn't stop clicking even after the flame ignited. I swapped that ignitor with the ignitor from a back burner, expecting that the problem was with the ignitor and that the back burner would start to click incessantly, but at least I'd have my favorite front burner for use. Instead, the front burner was then only clicking 50% of the time and the back burner was fine, suggesting the problem was related to the burner not the ignitor. I pulled the front ignitor a bit away from the burner and now it is working normally. Hope this helps.
