SOURCE: No Ignition

Dirt. Spilled oil, grease, milk etc. act as isolator and prevent contact between burner and casing (mass). You need to clean up burners, scrub all the dirt and make sure their seats are cleaned too (brass elements below burners).

SOURCE: whirlpool stove top- two problems. 1) burner is

If all other burners working as they should, I'd check that bad one for partially plugged orifice. Try poking a small piece of wire through orifice hole to clean it. As far as igniter goes, and they are all connected to one source for spark, and separate wires run to each, make sure there is no breaks in small wire, as well as check that little ceramic igniter has a clean tip, if not clean with nail file or sand paper, and make sure it is same position at burner as others, as in close enough for spark to arc across to burner. if still no spark, try swapping wire with another, if it works, change wire, if not replace little ceramic piece at burner.

SOURCE: gas furnace, main burner ignites the other 2 don't. then shutdn.

Between the burners is a small rail in the pressed steel where the flame runs across to light the other burners and it sounds like there is dirt or debris in the step over rails causing the problem. You will need to use some compressed air on those rails to clear them out. Once the rails are clear the other two burners should ignite right away.

After all 5 burners ignite, one of either outside burners will flash out and blu flame licks upward.


If you have 'inshot' burners or the standard old 'ribbon' burners, there could be little wings on the sides of the burners that are responsible for spreading the flame from the igniters location to the burner next to it. I would think the two outside burners need to be 'tweaked' a tad bit either clockwise or counterclockwise to align better the little 'flame-spreader' wings. Some older ones ignite the burners by use of a 'zip-tube' which carries the igniting flame across the top of the row of burners to light them in a 'blanket' pattern. This style was typically the old 'atmospheric' burners and not the ones with combustion air fans.

first check to make sure all the burner tops are setting correctly on the burner base, if not it will make the flame uneven. the way the igniter works is once they feel the flames on them they will stop sparking. make sure the flames are not too low and they are touching the igniter. check them one at a time. if you have any questions message me back thanks

Right stove top burners won't ignite


Hello,
Your right side burners probably have small vertical lighting holes that are clogged where the pilot lights the burner. Use a sewing needle to poke each hole clean. While you're at it, poke clean the horizontal burner holes just to make sure they are not clogged either. Are there also little tunnels from the burners to each pilot flame? Make sure those are clean inside and attached properly on each end. The pilot flame should be approx 3/8" tall. Compare the working pilot flame to the non-working pilot flames and adjust as necessary. Each pilot has a small aluminum tubing running to it, the adjustment screw will be on this tube. You'll just need a small flat head screw driver to turn it counter-clockwise to increase flame. Hope this helps. Let us know if we can be of further assistance. Douglas

Gibson Furnace, Model #7106250 can not get a flame going. The furnace runs fine but is pumping out cold air without a flame. Any ideas?


On a call for heat, the 24 volt thermostat sends a signal to the control module. The control module will indicate a call for heat with a light on the control either blinking or remain solid depending upon model. The inducer (exhaust) blower will purge all gasses from the furnace and pressurize a pressure switch. Once the pressure switch tells the module to continue, the electronic ignition will energize and send 120 volts to the igniter. The igniter will glow and you will be able to see it if viewed thru the small inspection port. Once the igniter gets hot enough, it sends a signal to the module opening up the gas valve (24 volts). Either a pilot will come on or the burner tube will ignite then spread the flame to all burners. Lastly a safety sensor will be looking for a certain temperature within a few seconds and the furnace will continue to operate and the room air blower will turn on in a minute or two.

What could go wrong? The unit will not run if there is no signal from the thermostat (bad thermostat or broken wire), the control module does not sense a signal from the thermostat (bad control), the inducer does not energize (bad motor), the pressure switch does not close (blocked vent piping, bad switch, plugged condensate hose, Dirty Air Filter), the igniter does not energize (bad control, bad igniter), the gas valve does not open or there is no gas (bad gas valve, broken wire, no gas), the pilot does not light (dirty pilot), the burner does not light (bad burner, plugged orifice, not enough combustion air), the flame does not spread to each burner (bad flame spreader, dirty flame spreader, more bad burners), the flame safety sensor does not detect flame (dirty or bad flame spreader, bad flame sensor, broken wire, bad control), or the room air blower does not energize (bad fan motor, bad control).

The fan will come on but there is no heat I checked the gas line and there is gas getting to the heater. I took the igniter out and checked if the there was igniter had on open in one of the contacts.


Without a make or model, all I can offer you is a generic sequence of operation.

On a call for heat, the 24 volt thermostat sends a signal to the control module. The control module will indicate a call for heat with a light on the control either blinking or remain solid depending upon model. The inducer (exhaust) blower will purge all gasses from the furnace and pressurize a pressure switch.

Startup cycle goes fine. All lights(power, pressure, thermostat, and heater) sequence correctly. After ignition, heater fires up(seen through viewing window) but then blows out 15 seconds later when fan...


If you are getting fire and have an eo5 this is a reading for no flame so it is not reading the flame. What you probally have is small spider webs in your burner orfaces. You will need to pull the burners out and with a small wire or the like clear the gas orfaces going to the burners. These little webs can divert the gas to the main burners and keep it from the burner that reads the flame. Your heater will come on with a big woosh as the gas needs to come from other burners to fire. I hope this helps. Good luck

When the large burner is on, it keeps trying to ignite


Check that the burner orifice nozzle (the round thing that comes off) is properly seated on the burner manifold. Mine have a tab that must interlock.

Make sure all your burner orifices are CLEAN. Scrub them with a plastic kitchen scrubber, soap and water.

The way this works is, when a burner is turned on, the sensing mechanism for the spark control reads the ionization of the flame. No flame, no ionization, keep sparking so gas buildup is minimal in the area before a flame is ignited. )Kinda like the spark thingy's underneath the shuttle, without the ionization sensor's, just before it launches.).

You need to check a couple of things, first is the flame sensor, second is the thermostat. Without anymore detailed info this is the most I can give you.
