    Hi

    Not sure if it makes a difference but the stove is a bluestar 30" culinary series, NG or LP.

    As soon as you turn the burner on to any setting it ignites.

    Thanks

    Your ignitor switch for that burner is stuck and needs replacing.

    If you have moved the knob past lite after it is lit and it still sparks, it is usually a bad spark switch on the gas valve stuck in the on position.

    If you have recently cleaned the valves with any liquid solution it can cause them to malfunction.

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.

Bluestar rangetop clicks several times before igniting


Do other appliances in your home using LP gas work properly? If so, then this is probably an air/fuel mix problem on the burner(s). If this is a new rangetop there should be directions with the range and the LP conversion kit to instruct on proper adjustments. Be certain the correct LP orifice was installed for each burner (they likely have different BTU ratings for different sized burners) and the ignitor post is clean and spaced properly to burner. Then adjust the air mix to achieve a blue flame with just a tip of yellow. Delayed ignition usually results from the wrong air/gas mixture which doesn't ignite until too much fuel has accumulated. In many locations the company you purchase LP gas from will have someone who can check and adjust this. If the range was shipped from the factory as LP gas ready, then you can also contact your dealer and request assistance.

Electronic ignitor on propane stove wont start


  1. Close all valves, including the one on the supply tank.
  2. Open valves SLOWLY starting with the tank. Safety valves are built in to prevent escape og gas if vales are broken off.
  3. Turn on ONE burner valve and, depening on the ignition type of your stove, light it. (some have an electric spark generated by a power outlet (120v) and make a sort of poping sound, some have a spark generated by a push button type mechanism.
  4. Once one burner lights, the others should light easily. Sometimes air gets in the lines, and this may have to bleed off, but it should only take a few seconds. -PS, make sure the stove is level, since gas tends to flow to the high spot.

The electronic ignition (piezo lighter) on my Coleman 2-burner propane camp stove just quit sparking to 1 burner. It still lights the 2nd burner. A fix?


I've had this issue a few times. Complete cleaning of the under side of the burner and all components of the ignition system fixes it every time.
The slightest bit of carbon build up is the probable cause. I would suggest cleaning the contact with 400 grit or higher emory cloth. This will remove any contamination from the ignitor,

How do you start the oven on a Hardwick propane range?


The bottom part of the stove in the front has a drawer you pull out which has a broiler tray located there. You should be able to fold the door down and use a flash light to look inside . You will find a pilot light set-up there.
The stove I have has the pilot gas on all the time, so as soon as you turn on the gas to the range, the pilot gas is open to atmosphere.
I just light a match and reach in to where the gas piping can be seen and the pilot flame will light.
There is only a small amount of gas coming from the pilot orifice, so there isn't any danger lighting it when the gas is first turned on at the tank.
In fact you may have to wait a few minutes for it to light at first because the propane line maybe full of air. I usually light the top burners of the stove first and by that time the pilot gas for the oven is ok to light.
