Question about BlueStar RNB36 (Gas) Kitchen Range
We have a bluestar propane stove. Everything works great but 1 front burner,the igniter lights the burner (takes a few extra seconds) but the igniter keeps firing even after its lit. Any suggestions Shaun
I had the same issue. I needed to plug the plug into a properly grounded outlet. The have little testers for like $5 at Home depot. Plug in the tester, if the incorrect lights come on, that's your problem, or run a GROUNDED extension for another outlet and see if it works.

Make sure that the small burner holes near the ignitor are not clogged. if no flame is visibly touching the ignitor, then the ignitor will not sense that it is lit. The fact that it seems to take longer to light than normal leads me to this as well.
If there is good flame contact with the ignitor, then sometimes it will not sense the flame if you had a boilover and water got down between the wire and the ceramic body. This can happen with oil as well. Removing the ignitor (carefully! if you crack it, it will "leak" its spark and not work properly), cleaning it and letting it thoroughly dry will help. Most of the time I just leave the burner on and the clicking will stop after about a minute when the whole assembly heats up and drys out.
If all that checks out, then the ignition module is bad. Mine went out after 6 years use. They are available online (I bought mine from a Viking parts store...surprisingly). Replacement is fairly easy. Turn off the power to the stove. Remove the screws that hold the burner knob/oven knob faceplate to the range (Two are only accessed by opening the oven door, the rest are tucked up at the top of the faceplate and under the top-front lip of the range) The ignition module has many wires attached and they are easy to remove. MAKE SURE YOU ATTATCH THE WIRES TO THE NEW MODULE IN EXACTLY THE SAME SPOTS ON THE NEW IGNITOR. That includes the same ignitor wires that are all colored the same.
I absolutely love my Bluestar. I wish my convection fan was quieter, but the power of the range is simply awesome.
