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

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.

Testimonial: "that did the trick and no repair man was needed thanks"
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.

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.
