SOURCE: our gas stove repeatedly tries to lite

One of the small switches mounted on the gas valve stems has its little contacts fried together. Sometimes pots poil over and water gets into a switch and after 4 or 3 day that switch goes all propah again. To repair the prob you must find the bad switch and replace it. Remove a wire from one at a time till yo find the bad one. Or simply replace the entire harness making sure each swicth is properly locked into place. Simple ain't it? LOL

SOURCE: got gas stove flints wet and wont stop sparking?

The problem is actually caused by water getting into one of the burner ingition switches. This will generally correct itself by just drying out over time. (usually within a day) Just leave the range unplugged for a while.

SOURCE: burners won't light automatically. Will light

If none of the igniters are working then it is probably the igniter module which is relatively easy to replace on most makes and models.

How to change the flint on micro torch roburn mt-770

There is no flint.
It uses a piezoelectric igniter. Not really replaceable.
Point it at yourself at arms length and see if you can see a spark when you press the button to start it.
Here is a video which shows how to adjust the air-gas mixture when the torch is new.

Burners won't light automatically. Will light with a match. Flint doesn't spark anymore. Can flints be replaced and by whom?

Blazer pocket micro torch will not spark. Gas comes out, but no spark to ignite it.

try to open up the part where the spark would come from. there should be a screw on the bottom or top to open it. This is where the flint would be.

The flint is probably worn down or it broke (you can buy new flints at pretty much any convince store around they are i believe $1-2 for 5 of them.

replace the flint and you will have a spark.

Your igniter may well be a Piezo Electric device... a spring loaded hammer strikes a crystal and the crystal generates a high voltage which causes a spark. They sometimes break down mechanically and the hammer no longer hits the crystal. You can sometimes repair them (rarely) and sometimes buy a replacement unit.

My grill will not ignite. I tried both ways. What could be wrong?I hear the gas but it wont start

Hello. It could be a bad igniter. Go to any hardware and get a lighter, like this BIC
If it lights this way, clean the igniter, if it still doesn't spark, replace the igniter. Joe

How to fit a flint in a vintage dunhill pistolttable lighter?

On the underside opposite the flint there should a screw head.

Remove this screw (take care, there will be a spring inside!) .
Turn it over and the remains of the old flint should drop out.

Insert new flint and re-assemble.

How to light our gas cooker

Modern gas cookers use an electronic ignition switch rather than a pilot light to light the gas for cooking. This means you can light your gas cooker with the touch of one button instead of using several matches or a flint lighter. Of course, you still have the option to light the gas cooker by hand with matches or a flint lighter if the ignition switch does not work the first time.

1.Open the gas regulator valve by pushing it in and turning it to a low setting.

2.Push the ignition switch once.

3.If the gas cooker does not light on the first try, close the gas regulation valve for one minute by pushing in on it and turning it back to the "Off" position.

4.Open the gas regulation valve, set it a bit higher than you did on the first lighting attempt, and push the ignition switch again.

5.Light the gas with a match or a flint lighter if the gas cooker does not light when you push the ignition switch again.
