Re: Gas Cooktop

It is probably just a dirty orifice. It should be in the center of the burner and have a small hole in the top of it. Use something small like a paper clip or safety pin and poke in that hole a few times to clean it out. Let me know if this helps.

My DGSU100-4BSS-LP Gas Cooktop spaks but does not ignite

Check for LP leak. You also have to wait for air locks to vent out through burners to get lite the first time.

My GE Gas cooktop model # JGP975EKSS is trying to ignite without any burners being turned on.

If all the burners are trying to ignite at the same time - the ignitor module is to blame.
If it is one specific burner - take a look at that individual knob.

The igniter on the right front burner of my GE Gas cooktop does not work....I must use a lighter or match to ignite....What can I do? There is no clicking sound when I turn on the burner?

all burner igniters work at the same time - you may have a faulty electronic spark unit. change the spark unit. go to repair clinic dot come for the unit. also would be wise to check the ingniter start switch on the gas burner control knob

Jenn Air Gas cooktop burner ignition

Hi JHMcdona

Most likely the electrode for the right burner is defective. As well as the switch may also be defective (is shorted because of pressing hard on it trying to make it work!!). Change the electrode and igniter switch of the right front burner.

Gas cooktop BOOM

Gas is taking too long to ignite. Make sure the burner rings are installed properly. They have grooves that need to line up. Also make sure all the holes are clean.

1 burner wont stop clicking on miele cooktop km 344

We have an older Thermador Gas Cooktop type range. It was working fine until the cleaning crew came in, then all the burner igniters were clicking when turning on a single burner. I solved the problem by cleaning off the igniters. I first of course unplugged the power. Then I took a small wire telcom pic tool to scrape the white and brown deposits from the sides of the igniters. You could probably use something else similiar to do the scraping. I noticed a shiny surface underneath. I then went ahead and scraped and brushed clean the mating surface where the spark travels. I then vacuumed up the mess. My burners all worked great after this. Hope this helps!

Some Burners Will Not Ignite

probably a worn wire to the electrode or a cracked ignitor. you are faced with taking off the hobtop and looking - no easy solution. you should not do this unless you are confident and don't interupt the gas path
