One of the switches is stuck,causing circuit to 'think' that you're trying to light a burner. Give each control knob a good 'tap' with the back of a screw driver.If that doesn't free it up, we will have to find the stuck
switch

I have a Whirlpool super capacity 465 gas oven that won't stay lit. It often lights up the first time just fine but then it turns off which is normal but when it tries to relight itself the ignitor...


That sound to me like yall have some carbon buildup on the igniter. On this stove the igniter does 2 jobs. It lights the burner and verifies back to the control that Houston we has ignition. If junk is built up on that ignitor then she won't be sending verification of ignition back to the control. That white residue needs to be removed. NOTE: I don't have your model number I am going by what you describe that this stove is a Direct spark ignition model. If you have a normal ignitor it probably is weak and not drawing 3.5 amps to open the valve. Post a model number (bottom drawer frame)

The gas is connected on the rear side of the stove but the pilot light is not lit, nor will it light. trying to trouble shoot the problem before deciding to purchase a new oven/range. Also, I remember...


You may have a pilotless ignition.Check around door frames for model #plate.
Also , open broiler door ,turn on oven and look inside . If you see an orange glow appear after awhile, that is the electronic igniter and you have an electronic ignition(no pilot).In this case the top burners use a spark ignition system.If you don,t hear clicking when you turn on a burner your ignition module might be bad.
Easily fixed though.

Stove top ignitors do not ignite but oven does.


Electric gas igniters sometimes get stuck in one position causing a clicking sound. The clicking sound that you hear is the electric arc that is pulsing from the igniter conductor (wire) to ground (the gas burner). It receives power from the electrical outlet that the stove is plugged into.
Residue from food and sometimes cleaning products may be preventing the igniter from producing a spark (Arc) to the base of the burner. This is a common problem that occurs when the stove has been cleaned or food is allowed to build up. Make sure that the igniter and the burner base are clean and dry. This will help with proper operation. Oven cleaner and a small tooth brush may be used to accomplish this. Another problem with ignition may occur if you have too little (touching) or too much space between the igniter and the base of the burner; it will prevent the burner from igniting. You should only have a little more space than the thickness of a nickel between the burner base and the igniter. A good “blue” arc from the igniter to the burner base is optimal. If this doesn’t work, you may need to replace the electric igniter module. Good luck.

My gas was recently shut off for repairs from the gas company, now its back on and i dont know how to get my oven or stove back on


Ok you did not mention if your oven or stive had pilot lights or igniters. Given you asked the question how too turn it back on I have to assume it does not have electronic igniters. You need to light the pilot lights. There are 2 in top that are between each of the 2 burner sets. If you can not gain access to the pilot light by lifting the top of the stove up you can use a fire starter type lighter and re-light them. Sometimes they will self light if you just use a match on the burners.
As for the oven you can gain access 2 ways to the pilot light. One is to unlatch and remove the oven lower inside panel. The pilot light will be near the burner head. Just light it. The other is to remove the broiler drawer and reach way back in there to light the pilot light.


Again if you have igniter ignition all you have to do is turn on a burner or the oven. Good Luck.

Igniters will not stop clicking.


Hi


Thanks for using FIxYa.The igniter doesn't stop clicking due to a short inside the igniter circuit or due to moisture present on the ignition switch.Turn off the gas supply immediately and also unplug it from the mains power. Now take a blower or your hair dryer and blow hot air over the igniter. Also check for the following troubleshooting steps---


1) The gap between the igniter and the burner base is too large. *Should be approximately the thickness of two dimes.

2) Soiled igniter or burner base.

The above can be tested by switching the suspected burner with a known operating burner.

3) Loose wiring connections at the igniter, the grounding strap, or spark module.

4) Broken or pinched igniter wire between the burner and module.

Both of the above are physical inspections under the main top.

5) The module may have a week coil, which is not providing sufficient voltage to ignite the gas.

Even after performing these steps the igniter doesn't stop clicking then you need to replace the spark module.

Please do rate the solution and revert for further assistance.


Thanks

My right front burner will not turn off on my electric stove top.


Its probably the switch for that element, the contacts are fused. If this is a smooth top ceramic stove then the control relay board relay for that element is stuck.

Spark module clicks and gas will not stay lit, flame comes on but goes out


hi Clogged burners are a very common problem with gas ranges because foods spilled on the burners block the gas ports and prevent ignition. On some gas ranges you can remove the top ring of the burner to expose the ports. Here's how to clean a burner:
Step 1: Turn off the power supply, both gas and electric, to the range. Then remove the burner.
Step 2: Soak the burner in a solution of mild household detergent and water. Clean it with a soft cloth.
Step 3: Clear the gas ports with a pin or needle, rinse the burner, and let it dry. Caution: Do not use a toothpick or matchstick to clean the gas ports. If the tip of the wood gets stuck in the burner ports, it could cause a serious blockage.
Step 4: When the burner is completely dry, replace it, and turn on the power and the gas supply.
thank u.................

I just installed one in my house. I found that when you start the lower (gas) oven you need to turn the dial all the way on to 500*, push the knob in (you should hear the igniters clicking), then even when you see flames coming out of the burner, continue the ignition for 10 to 15 seconds. It should continue to stay lit thereafter.
