Question about DCS 24-24G-1 Gas Kitchen Range

1 Answer

Dcs 48" gas range igniter comes back when set on low/simmer

Only one of the five burners has this problem and it started several weeks ago. the electrode igniter comes back "on" when the the burner is lowered to low and simmer and continues to click until it is turned higher. It disengages at the third dial mark above low.

i have cleaned the electrode as per the o&m manual and nothing changed.

also noticed that the gas flow from the burner when this is happening is lower on the side near the burner if that matters.

thanks in advance for any advice offered

This is not a solution but something to think about for troubleshooting.
On the DCS there are two ports that feed gas to the burner.
One for high flame and one for simmer.
On the DCS if the flame is snuffed out on simmer it will automatically reignite.
So if the igniter will not shut off while on simmer, the sensor is bad and is trying to reignite the burner.

    On the DCS the burner has two gas supply ports. One for high flame and one for simmer. Because the flame is so low on simmer there is a sensor that detects if the flame is out or not. If it is snuffed out it will automatic restart. Sounds like the burner is trying to reignite. It could be a bad sensor.

SOURCE: dcs gas oven/range, ignitor won't go off after burner or burners are lit

They probably cleaned the stove and in replacing the parts of the burner switched the rings on top of the burner. This happened to me. While they look alike, the round rings, not the flat disks, have to be on the right burner in order for the electron spark to ignite the gas. Good luck.

SOURCE: DCS Range constant sparking at all burners even when lighting one

This happens to mine if there is anything on any of the burners, such as food residue or moisture. Check all the burners to see that nothing is touching the burner area where the gas jets are. Even a little water can make this happen.

SOURCE: DCS 4 burner plus griddle Range..oven doesn't heat

This happened to my DCS when the Hot Wire Relay went out. It isn't an expensive part, but finding someone that knows what needs to be replaced, and then can replace it is hard. My oven also did the opposite and continued to heat without shutting off, and it was once again the hot wire relay.

SOURCE: My DCS range burners with electric start.

Very likely the spark module. All four are supposed to click when one is turned on, however they are supposed to stop when the burner ignites. Replace the module and test. Good Luck, Appliance Specialists

Igniter switch on top burner will not shut off


try thoroughly cleaning the burners, particularly the holes in the ring that the gas come through. The gas come through to heat the ignitor so that the ignitor knows to stop trying to light the burner ; if the holes are clogged the ignitor doesn't heat.
The burner is easily disassembled from the top by removing a thin bolt, and you can clear the holes with a paper clip.

10 year old DCS Oven does ignite. Oven ignitor glows but maybe not enough to trigger LP from being introduced?


just because the ignitor glows it doesn't mean it's good,it takes 3.2 amps for the ignitor to open the gas valve and ignite the flame,usually if the flame doesn't ignite in around 40 seconds the ignitor is bad.also check the burner tube,your model number doesn't come up so i don't know if you have one or two ignitors in this oven but i've found that when the ignitor starts to fail and the customer waits to long to have it looked at the ignitor burns a hole in the tube and then both the ignitor and tube has to be changed,hope this helps and good luck with your oven.

Electronic igniters will not turn off when the gas burner lites. all four igniters run untill you turn off the nob or unplug the unit


I'm dealing with this same problem. This cooktop has a dedicated simmer burner which is the only thing going on the lowest setting. This simmer burner seems to be how the igniter senses that it can stop. If it doesn't light, the igniter keeps clicking. Usually cleaning the burner will solve this. You may need to unscrew the nut holding the lower piece of the burner in place in order to clean it up.
Good luck!

Dynasty gas range - orange flames


It is normal, it will disappear after a little while, when you bang on the burners, particle fell off form inside of the burners and it caused the orange flame. Yellow flame means not enough air or burner is internal clogged.

DCS Range Ignition problem


I agree with two of the reviews here. Every so often after a good cleaning, or most recently after some oil spilled over, I had a burner that wouldn't light. All of them clicked, but the one I wanted didn't light. So after reading the above posts, I unscrew the hex nut, removed the shimmer ring, and cleaned it, and mopped up a bunch of oil under where the ring sits. Put everything back together and lit it manually. After 30 secs of flame I shut it down and tried to light it automatically. It worked! Looks like, thanks to some folks here, that I saved myself an annoying phone call and possible repair bill!

Extra low burner that won't ignite


Lowly what the potentior does is turn on the burner control system. When you turn on a normal burner you are opening a gas valve and closing a switch to generate a spark. Thus gas flow to the burner and spark. On the extra low simmer burner there is a electric solenoid between the burner head and the gas valve. this has to open as well for gas to flow. What the potentior does is signal the simmer control what level of flame you are requesting and telling the spark module to generate a spark. Once you go to the exlow setting the potentior tells the simmer control what level of heat and will cycle the flame on and off. So when the burner knob was between low and extra low, the flame would cycle on and off. You have to seperate the top section of the cooktop from the burner box to change the potentior for it sits on top of the gas valve for that burner.
