SOURCE: stove top pilot light

I have a GE Gas Stove XL44 the stove top buners don't light by themselves without manual lighting. When I turn on the buner knob the buner doesn't click. Also I used my self- cleaning oven for the first time and stopped it before the time was up after that is when the stove top buners wouldn't light by theirselves.

SOURCE: Burner no longer functions

two thiongs, you might have a bad switch( under control knob), or before you try that ck the old elemnt that you replaced, on the back of the limiter( the glass rod that goes through elemnt itlself), you'll see little letters 1a,2a,1b,2b.--- new replacemnets depending on age are wired differently, they too will have 1a2a1b2b but in different position. id check that first

You can replace the failed component which is either the burner or the switch that controls the burner. A voltage test would have to be done to determine which compoonent has failed. Generaally it is worthwhile to repair the range.

This is becoming a common problem. If your dual burners are controlled by the burner switch only, then you need to replace your dual burner infinite switch. Some models have a seperate rocker switch that switches from small burner to both burners. If you have this style then this is usually your problem. Can also be from shorted wiring but this is very unlikely. Good Luck, Appliance Specialists

My kenmore elite grill has a ceramic cooking grid. it is 1 yr old.recently a problem developed. the ceramic grid lights as usual, but does not stay lit.once i let go of the knob the burner goes out. thanks...


check thermo coupling., its purpose is to keep heat at flame area-helps keep flame lit,like a pilot light... clean it with a finger nail file LIGHTLY- or use sand paper LIGHTLY, just to clean surface..

Large burner won't shut off


This stove uses a special switch that turns one way for the large burner and the other way for the smaller burner. I was not aware that this had a seperate simmer burner on it, however. I think you using the wrong term there.

This is not computer controlled--the only computer on it should be the oven switch. I would assume that you need to replace the switch for the dual-size burner. If you take your model number in to Sears, or log onto Sears dot com, you should be able to get to the PARTS DIRECT web site on the computer, and if they ever sold that model you should be able to pull up a parts breakdown with expanded drawing and part numbers and prices. You should be able to buy the part from them. The part should be virtually the same as ANY recent model Frigidaire or Kenmore stove with the same style burner. This should be a very easy repair for you to make yourself, assuming that you know a little about working with electricity--remember, this stove USES 220 VOLTS!

Check out all of the wiring coming into the switch and going from the switch to the burner to be sure that there is not a short!

If you have one of the older smooth surface stoves, where the burners are part of the ceramic top, all bets are off, but anything you bought new in the last half-dozen years, should have a separate burner underneath a glass top, and the repair should be simple. Even with the older stove, it is still likely the switch, and should be no problem.

My Amana ceramic cooktop has one burner that is not working. I can't get the top off to look at the burners. How do you repair one burner on a ceramic cooktop?


Check your warranty first. Some burners on smooth tops had long warrantys. If not first turn the power off to the unit at the breaker. If this is a in counter cooktop it has to come out of the counter and take all the screws out that hold down the top. Best to unwire from house and move whole unit to big surface to work on.

Knob not working and some burners not heating


The switch under that knob is bad.  It's called an infinite switch.  As far as the elements go, first thing to check is for proper voltage (220) to the cooktop.  Let me know what you find.
