    this question relates to a smug 6 burner hob.. Turning and depressing the other two gives a spark at all 6 burners

    Hello Patrick Keates,

    I am supposing "smug" & "hob" actually means something where you are... (not here).

    This is actually a USA fixya site... You will have to make a sincere attempt to identify what we are referring to... (make, model... range/cook-top).

    The FREE advice gets no MORE EXPENSIVE if you want to give us a meaningful question...

    I'm just saying... Try it...
    it's still FREE.

SOURCE: Almost brand new gas range with electric ignition. One burner doesn't light no clicking when knob is turned however, if a different knob is turned, burner in question sparks. If two knobs are turned s

It'll be a switch problem on the valve in question.

Is there a trick to starting the Pyrox 400? Turned the fan on and press on low then repeatedly press the ignition pilot light, start to smell of gas after a minute. Won't start Help please


Is the ignition sparking? When you press and hold down the buttons, the ignition should be sparking at the centre electrode. At the same time when you hold the buttons down, the gas valve is manually held open to release the gas. The spark is then supposed to ignite the gas. Hold the knobs down for about 3 to 5 seconds after ignition and the gas valve will stay on. If it lights but the flame wont stay on, it could be anything from a partially blocked aeration port to a worn knob. When you push down on the knob, it is supposed to press down on an electromagnetic lock which keeps the gas valve open when the flame is burning. When the knob or shaft isn't pushing down enough, it doesn't keep the gas valve locked and the flame will go out as soon as you let the knob go.

When I go to start my grill, I turn on the gas and then the knob on the right side to spark the gas for the fire. When I turn the knob it does not spark the gas. Hoe do I troubleshoot what is wrong....


It sounds like you have a rotary piezo igniter, which means you get one click, or spark, per rotation. If there is no click when you turn the knob, or the knob spins freely when you turn it, it has probably broken. If you pull the knob of, there should be two screws behind the knob that holds the igniter to the front panel. Hopefully you can remove the screws and reach behind the panel to remove the igniter. If this wont work, you have to remove the front panel. If the igniter is not broken, then check the wires and electrode for shorts.

Dead burner on kitchenaid gas cooktop?


it is strange that you have no gas and no spark! if you held a match to the burner and turned the burner valve on it would lite di spite a failed ignitor,but for it not to lite, the burner valve[its what the knob attaches too] would have to be blocked[thats rare]or ........i got it .....the knob is broken.thats the only thing the burner valve and the spark ignitor have in common.try a knob from another burner................again.you have spark,because others are working.spark on troubled burner would work if valve blocked at orifice outlet,and if spark failed you would still get gas they work independent of each other,[but in unison].thats why im thinking knob.its the item that works both .when you turn the knob it opens the gas valve and as the gas valve rotates by turning the knob it activates or turns the spark switch so it closes the curcit allowing the electricty to the spark moduel.hey i hope that helps a little. God bless ,tom

Igniter


Does the knob control both the gas and spark, try turning on the knob only, if it starts to spark right away then it is possible that the switch is bad. because most of these units are designed where you turn on the gas then push in and hold the knob to ignite then release and spark should stop.
