SOURCE: Kenmore Oven and stove not igniting

If both top and oven are not igniting, then most likely you need an ignitor board. I should be located behind the left side of the console as you are looking from the front of the stove. I will look it up to be sure. There should be a tech sheet on the back panel of the stove to help in checking the boards.
Thanks/Mike

SOURCE: Jenn-Air part RI302 4 pt gas re-igniter with flame rectification tytronics #Z21-20 and 7431 PO38-60

We had the same problem on a Thermador cooktop with the same RI-302 ignitor. Turns out it was one of the switches that sits on top of the gas valves. These switches cause the ignotor to fire when the valve is turned. In our case, one of the switches had malfunctioned and was "always on" causing the ignitor to continuously fire.

SOURCE: the igniter on my stove wont stop clicking?

I would check the valve switches. Chances are one of them is stuck. If they are not overly expensive I would recommend replacing all 4 while it is apart.

Jenn-air jdr8895 sabbath error


Faulty range/oven parts aren't the only worry a gas range owner has; the threat of carbon monoxide is very real and should be paid close attention to when doing repairs on the range.

If your range or oven gives off soot, you definitely have a carbon monoxide problem. Soot is the result of inefficient or incomplete combustion. There are always elevated levels of carbon monoxide with soot production. Properly adjusted range/oven parts do not give off soot. You may have poorly adjusted gas pressure, the air shutter may need to be opened, or you may be supplying fuel the oven isn't designed to handle. Don't use natural gas in liquid propane stove or vice-versa.

Igniters will not stop clicking.


Hi


Thanks for using FIxYa.The igniter doesn't stop clicking due to a short inside the igniter circuit or due to moisture present on the ignition switch.Turn off the gas supply immediately and also unplug it from the mains power. Now take a blower or your hair dryer and blow hot air over the igniter. Also check for the following troubleshooting steps---


1) The gap between the igniter and the burner base is too large. *Should be approximately the thickness of two dimes.

2) Soiled igniter or burner base.

The above can be tested by switching the suspected burner with a known operating burner.

3) Loose wiring connections at the igniter, the grounding strap, or spark module.

4) Broken or pinched igniter wire between the burner and module.

Both of the above are physical inspections under the main top.

5) The module may have a week coil, which is not providing sufficient voltage to ignite the gas.

Even after performing these steps the igniter doesn't stop clicking then you need to replace the spark module.

Please do rate the solution and revert for further assistance.


Thanks

My Jenn-air oven won't turn on. It's model number


My Jenn Air 1995 wall oven was working fine until one day the oven and the oven gas burner did not turn ON. I had electricty (make sure you did not trip a breaker) since my front panel LCD and clock was OK. I had a good gas supply.

My oven is an "pilot-less" oven, it uses an electric igniter. Although the "ignitor" was "glowing red hot", the problem is that the gas valve depend on a certain amount of current. If you have a 120V house system, I think the valve needs 3.3 to 3.6 amps to turn on. The current flows through the igniter and then through the valve, as in a same path, like water. So you need an AMP meter to check proper current flow. I read 2.4 amps. I replaced the "glowing red hot" igniter with a new one, Vo"la it was fixed.

Bottom line if you have the oven plugged in OK and you see some life (clock), and you have the gas turned on, most likely the igniter is bad. Second choice would be the oven's thermostat (the temp knob that you turn, say to 350F), or it could be the gas valve.

All three are in same current circuit. The igniter gets the most abuse so I would start there first -good luck!

First two burners, now all burners...


You have a defective spark module. This is a device which breaks down the 120 incoming volts to a 12 volt spark to ignite the burners. Replace module and problem should be solved.

Gas top burner not lighting ( 4 others work )


It's probably the ignitor and there may be soemthing clogging one of the gas holes. You can gently use a scrub brush to dislodge any cloggs and see if that helps. You might have to replace the ingitor if this doesn't work. We have parts, so please call us to help. Hope this does the trick for you. Ella

One or more igniters are trying to light burners that aren't turned on .One burner is on. The other post on this never got answered properly.


When you turn the burner dial, all igniters spark. Most brands work this way. The dial activates all igniters to spark but only opens the gas valve attached to that dial.

Do you mean that they continue to spark even when you are not trying to light the stove?

KENMORE GAS STOVE OVEN LOWER BURNER WON'T WORK


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...

Oven won't light


you should have an igniter set up in the oven follow the the front of the burner to the end (back) you should see the igniter follow the wires from the igniter to the elec- safety valve unplug those two wires and tape them together make sure stove is unplugged before you start his process. now plug in oven does igniter light if yes safety valve is bad if no unplug oven from outlet unwrap tapped wires and reinstall them where they came from it would help if you had a ohm meter cut th wires coming out of the igniter not too short in case you have to reconnect them but you will need ceramic wire nuts the do not melt after you cut the wires from the igniter check for continuity @ the igniter no continuity means bad igniter ,i doubt the thermostat is bad but we can troubleshoot it tommorrow if these steps dont work
