4 range cooktop ignitors not working without assistance of a lighter or match

Do you have replacement parts such as burner assembly available? This is approximately the 4th time I have asked this question without an answer yet.

I'm not sure what make or model you have but most of these beasts have a central control unit that feeds the igniters for each burner.

Since none of the burners will light (I assume that there is no spark or a very weak one) the unit sounds like a likely suspect.

Those units are a LOT more expensive than matches.

If it is not too old you might try to get a GE warranty for it (probably $20 a year) Many times they never ask if the thing is working.. wait the 30 days and have it fixed. Ours crapped out several times so the yearly service charge was a deal.... Of course you COULD just cancel it at any time. We did not.
Meanwhile, strike up the matches or keep a spark starter handy.

SOURCE: Replace burner spark ignitor?

Electric igniters are usually very simple installs since they usually only come with a common and hot wire, and the igniter clips on to the burners right near the burner top for ignition. The easiest way a DIYer can do this themselves is to slowly take apart the current ignitor after lifting the top of the range up and taking note of every thing's placement. If you have the direct OEM part, then it either work or will not, based upon the fact that it's either the ignitor or the switch for it that has gone bad.

To test if your igniter has gone bad, remove it completely. (it should only be a small cylinder with two prongs, and two wires coming out the other side) Be sure not to strip any screws as heat from the oven will make them hard to remove. From there, you'll need to jump the connection on the top of the igniter with a conducting piece (ie: aluminum foil or wire), then test the common/hot wires with your circuit tester or volt meter. A solid tone or light means that your igniter is good, and the problem lies somewhere else.

SOURCE: jenn air range, model CVG4280B,

I do not know the cause BUT the fan behavior (on for left burners, off for right burners) is by design. The high-speed fan has two switches; 1) the primary switch visible centered between top two knobs, 2) secondary switches integrated with left burner knobs.

SOURCE: Dacor PGM365-1 gas cooktop -

I replaced my led light with one from Radio Shack its a 5mm Blue led part number276-314 it was about $3.00. I connected it with solderless connectors for telephone wires also from Radio Shack. I covered the connections with heat shrink tubing. I fished out the light without taking the face of the stove off. I did all the work outside in the front of the stove. I checked it to make sure I had the polarity right. Then I fished it all back in and used rounded needle nose pliers to put the light back in. It all works like a charm. Im not sure if it will go out again. I did not fix whatever caused it to burn out in the first place but I thought it was worth the cost under $10.00 to try it out. I will post if it fails again.

Model 790 70613210. How do I relight pilot?


Hello. There is *no* pilot on this range! You have a glow bar for both the bake and broil functions in the oven. The bake glow bar part number is (#19) 316489402(see pic 2). The ignition module(that provides the high voltage for the spark posts at each of the surface burners is (#8) 316262400. The ignition harness(that has four ignition switches daisy-chained together is (#3) 316580615. The sealed burner for the LF and LR is 316558300(quantity 2). The RF burner is 316438600. The RR burner is 316438200.
RF orifice/ignitor assembly 316536614
RR orifice/ignitor assembly 316536610
LF orifice/ignitor assembly 316536602
LR orifice/ignitor assembly 316536600
BURNER HEAD SCREWS (QUANTITY 8) 316540900
LP CONVERSION KIT (#47) 316542414
If you are hesitant about the disassembly on the range, I strongly advise calling for service--The cooktop must be removed to exposed the ignition parts. This is accomplished by releasing the burner heads from the cooktop. The mount screws on the burners are notorious for seizing and the heads breaking off on removal. If this happens, the orifice/ignitor will have to be replaced for every burner with which this occurs. It can be expensive! I hope the diagrams and part numbers help you!

Viking model VGR48 stovetop burners will not ignite?


First shut off the gas supply & disconnect electrical power to the range.
  • Remove all the burner control knobs, grates, burner caps & trim rings.
  • Remove the 2 screws securing the manifold panel, one from each corner. The panel will drop down.
  • Remove the screws from each manifold pipe mounting bracket. Remove 1/4 inch hex head bolt from the center of the manifold pipe. Push supply tube back to release from manifold pipe. Lift the cooktop assembly at the front to clear the 1/2 inch locator pins attached to the top of the bodyside.
  • Place cardboard between each side of cooktop & bodyside to prevent damage.
  • Move the cooktop to one side, being careful not to put stress on the wiring harness on left side.
  • Remove the wire from the electrode.
  • Remove the screw from the electrode mounting bracket to release the electrode.
You can replace the electrode & reassemble following instructions in reverse order.

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?


the very first thing i would do here is to check the ignitor itself
under the head cap you should see two screws, once those are out you will be able to lift the burner plate, lift the burner plate, you will see, or should see the ignitor, and the wire.
i check this for voltage by unplugging the ignitor and olding the wire close to a ground, the metal body is good. Turn on the ignitor, becareful it is live. yhou shgould see a spark comming from the wire
if not check to make sure that wire is in position and on the spark module
if you do see a spark this way, just order the replacement ignitor
and install it when it arrives

Jenn-Aire ccg2523 Natural Gas sealed cooktop. Ignitors on all 5 burners continue firing when I light RF burner. Ignitors will not shut off until I turn off RF burner. Also, how do you access parts on this...


Hi

It seems like you got water into the ignitor switches on under the knobs. Sometimes it takes 48 hours for this to dry out. Or you can pull the knobs and use a hair dryer on to dry out the switches. Also you can try to clean it. Please refer to the link and picture: e11b706.gif Please do accept the solution and revert for further assistance. Thanks Rylee

Jenn-Air JGC8536 Gas Cooktop ignitor replacement


One burner doesn't consistently light. Igniter sparks but not the same as the other - "good" burners spark at top of igniter and moves around to light, "bad" burner sparks toward the bottom and doesn't move much. I can use the burner by lighting with a match and it works fine. Have tried cleaning with a toothbrush without much success
