Question about Kitchen Ranges

1 Answer

During cleaning my burning got wet and only one of 4 are working. None are clicking. The screws to take off burners are stripped. Is there a special tool that can get them off and once they are removed will I be able to replace a part so that I can get the stove working? Or will I have to replace the whole unit. The stovetop is approximately 7 years old. I need help with determining if its cheaper to replace or fix

SOURCE: Stove burner igniter does not work.

Your problem is not the igniter itself, but the burner switch that controls the igniter. All the igniters get their power from one spark module that is mounted somewhere in back of the oven. That's why you are able to get all the igniters to spark with only one burner control turned on. This is normal. That is also why you are able to light the burner in question buy turning on another burner. The spark is being provided by a switch that is working. To answer your question: the igniter is removable, but I don't think it's necessary. Cleaning them generally doesn't make them work better. I would check the wiring from the spark module to the burner switch and/or replace the switch. I hope this helps.

Hi ewood,
You can look up your ge owners manual at ge.com . If the oven has stopped working chances are you have a bad ignitor. the part number is WB2X9154 . The part is $69.99 and I have this item in stock. Shipping will be $6.50 in the continental US>
I hope this will FixYa. If you have more questions please let me know. I can tell you how to remove the old ignitor if needed.

SOURCE: gas stove /electric starter won't click to start cleaned stove

Try cleaning the starter with rubbing alcohol and toothbrush. There might be soap or boiled over residue on the starter. If that doesn't work, try using fine 150 grit sandpaper and gentle clean the starter with it. This problems drove me nuts too. Good luck!

SOURCE: burner igniter won't click or work

This is an easy problem to fix. If your repair man is correct and it is the spark module and not a wire harness problem you can pick up a spark module as sears for about $37 and it only takes a couple of minutes to install. Just pull off the back panel and replace the module. This is a repair that anyone can do. I would recommend unplugging the unit before replacing.

Hi, If you have fuses on the stove have them checked and/or replaced with new ones.
You may have shorted out something when you made it wet.
Also check main power breaker if tripped. 115/230 volt breaker.
Hope that helps.

Amana electric dryer timer doesn't advance during


If this is one of the electronic models: Clean the sensor strips located inside the drying area. As wet clothes rub against these the control monitors the resistance changes and knows the clothes are still wet therefore it continues to operate. When buildup from dryer sheets and fab softener get on them strips a barrier is formed that repels dampness. Therefore the control does not know the clothes are wet and goes to the end thinking all is Kosher. Clean them sensor strips with Windex and party on!

Burner ignighter will not stop clicking. The burner is not lit, but the clicking will not stop


One of the 4 burner control switches on the front of each burner control valves has failed. Inside the thin ceramic switch there are 2 thin strips of copper that are pushed together by a rotating cam driven by the movement of the burner control knob. One of the thin strips is stuck together.
UNPLUG the unit and only plug it in briefly for testing.
The top has to be opened by removing all 4 burner caps and removing the 4 screws under the burner caps. Remove the caps completely but reconnect one burner cap and make sure it is grounded so you can test the igniter's. The gas burner tubing needs removed then the gas burner support has to be removed to gain access to these switches. To remove the wires from the switch you have to use a jewelers screwdriver to release the 2 wires from the switch one at a time. The switches are in series parallel so if one switch is stuck all 4 igniter's pop. To read out the switches you have to remove at least one wire from each switch and insert a short test wire to read for continuity, The switch that has continuity with the burner control switch OFF is the failed switch.
NOTE: the yellow and orange wires need to be insulated during testing. I use a folded paper bag or torn off strips of a cardboard box Just test briefly....
The part number for the switch is 7403P190-60 (Image search)
http://www.repairclinic.com/PartDetail/Switch/7403P190-60/2326

There are numerous sources for the switch.
Thanks for choosing FixYa,

Spark igniters on the burners fire continuously


When cleaning, if the control switches get damp, they will react as you describe.
Unplug the appliance, use a hair dryer and attempt to dry the switches.
Leave it unplugged overnight and try them again tomorrow.
They will eventually dry and be OK.
