Question about Kenmore Cooktops
Believe that the electric ignitors have gone out. Can someone come out to replace them, or do we remove them and get the parts.
We believe that to be the problem. We can manually light the gas flame, but not electrically. Linda Elbert

Yes it should be an easy fix.
Ignitors simply go bad from time to time.
If you have a meter you can check to see if you have voltage going to the ignitor. If you do, and it isnt trying to ignite, replace the ignitor.
If you have no meter, ignitors are usually less than 30 bucks so you will not be to much in the hole by just replacing it.
If you lift the cover to access the ignitor, it should be held in by two crews, the gas tube, and a wire to the flame sensor.
Make sure you turn off all gas and electric before disassembling.
You can find ignitors at your local appliance parts supply house.
All you need is the model and serial numbers.

(F10 only) Check RTD Sensor Probe & replace if necessary.
If oven is overheating, disconnect power. If oven continues to
overheat when the power is reapplied, replace EOC. Severe
overheating may require the entire oven to be replaced should
damage be extensive.

or you could also have a switch issue sometimes when the switches overload on the inside they arch from one side to the other this causes power when it is introduced into the game to go through the switch the switches are wired in a chain from one the next in order to check this you would have to test where the voltage goes through each wire around the switches if your not familiar with doing electrical tests i would strongly suggest you call a technician. I just recently had a ge cafe that was a 5 burner and when you turned on to light one all would try to ignite after doing tests on the switch for which one was letting power go through even when the switch was off i narrowed it down to one switch and sure enough on the inside of the switch it had overloaded at one point and arched the metal inside the switch from one side to the other and this caused all to try to ignite because the switch was first in the chain if you have any further questions message me back and please remember when our chat has concluded to rank how this opinon has helped Thanks again Rick
