It is very possible that moisture from the cleaning has caused the ignition switches to make enough resistance to cause the burners to spark. It usually goes away after the stove has dried out. If it continues after a day or so one or more of the ignitor switches may need replacing.

Most likely a hot-surface ignitor has failed. If it doesn't consume enough current, the gas valve won't open. It's usually a fairly easy fix, once you gain access to the ignitor and have a new one to replace it with. Make sure you unplug the range...

What can I do to fix my Wirlpool Gas Oven? Mo. # WFG361LVB


i would check my oven gas safety valve first

· Gas ovens / stovetop that use gas and not electricity. These work by igniting gas and use actual flame on the the stovetop.
· Newest cook top styles, such as the induction or halogen cook tops combine the same style to produce more even heating. Some of these ovens feature thermal limiters or thermostats that regulate the burner system. GAS OVENS 1)The spark igniter tip is dirty (can clean it with either a little wire brush or a piece of fine sandpaper).

2) The Pilot flame is too low, and the tip of the igniter is not in the flame good enough. (the flame acts as a circuit when it touches the tip & completes the circuit).

3) The spark module is no good and needs to be replaced.(But 1 & 2 are your best bet).
spark module does not sense the flame when it's on. The spark igniter is also the flame sensor which provides feedback to the spark module.

Make sure the igniter is properly aligned with the burner lighting holes and it is clean. All lighting holes must be clean too. You can enlarge them using a drill bit one size bigger.

If it would not fix the problem, replace the bake burner and the igniter.

There is a small chance for the spark module itself to be bad as well.

I have a Kitchenaid superba convection/gas oven model KGR1607hblg (?) I had soup overflow from the top burner and now the burners will not ignite. When turned on they will spark but nothing catches.


Make sure that all the soup was cleaned out of the little holes in the burner that the gas comes out of. You can use a toothpick or some other small object like that to try to clean them out

It sounds as if the electronic clock/timer has failed and needs replacing. If you don't use the timer and don't need the clock it can be bypassed so that the oven will still work. A repair person should be able to do this fairly easily.

Oven won't heat, display out, gas burners on stove


Hello, you will probably need to pull it out and put it on something. Make sure the breaker is off to it before you test it. There is a thermostat in the very back that could be bad,check for continuity on that. Also check for continuity on the bake and broil element terminals itself,even though you have checked it to ground. If those check good,then the problems is in the control board.
Thanks

Stove top ignitors do not ignite but oven does.


Electric gas igniters sometimes get stuck in one position causing a clicking sound. The clicking sound that you hear is the electric arc that is pulsing from the igniter conductor (wire) to ground (the gas burner). It receives power from the electrical outlet that the stove is plugged into.
Residue from food and sometimes cleaning products may be preventing the igniter from producing a spark (Arc) to the base of the burner. This is a common problem that occurs when the stove has been cleaned or food is allowed to build up. Make sure that the igniter and the burner base are clean and dry. This will help with proper operation. Oven cleaner and a small tooth brush may be used to accomplish this. Another problem with ignition may occur if you have too little (touching) or too much space between the igniter and the base of the burner; it will prevent the burner from igniting. You should only have a little more space than the thickness of a nickel between the burner base and the igniter. A good “blue” arc from the igniter to the burner base is optimal. If this doesn’t work, you may need to replace the electric igniter module. Good luck.

My oven will not turn on. I notice the clock is not on but the burners do work. I have a kitchenaid superba oven with a glass cooktop.


You can download an electrical schematic from the kitchenaid web site. In the back of the stove, you will be able to trace the wires to find a loose connection. Be careful - make sure you disconnect the power before you start. You don't want to accidentally touch 220V.

Stoves 900G gas oven stopped working


A lot of times the problem is with a dirty or a clogged burner. Make sure the burner is clean.
If you have a pilotless model, it uses a spark igniter to ignite the gas, which works in a combination with a spark switch (located on the burner gas valve) and a spark module. Because it is not simple to test these parts and find out which one is defective, we recommend to contact a professional appliance technician.
