Under the area were the flame comes out there is a sparker check its clear, also on the cover make sure that is clean and has no buildup of cooked food in the area if it has clean with wire cloth. make sure there is no muck on the ignitor and it should work.

Sears Kenmore gas stove, the front left and the left and right rear burners turn on when the knob is turned to the lite position. The right front burner doesn't turn on when put lite position. N


If there is no clicking sound like you hear when you turn on the other burners than I'm going to say that either the electrode is bad or the spark switch, which is what you turn to turn on the burner to begin with. Both parts are cheap so it may be a good maintenance thing to change all of the burners. Make sure you have your model and go to www.repairclinic.com and order both parts, and if you don't need one send it back for a full refund even if you installed it. good luck

My front left buner won't lite. Can smell gas and can hear it trying to lite. It will lite after 8 or 9 times. Thank, Greg


hi - theres a few things you can try out tp see how good or bad the problem may well be.

1 - use a match to light the burner as normal to see how good the gas flow is - press & turn the knob so it starts to ignite but using a match it should work ok.

2 - if the above works firdt time - then the problem lies with the puiezo electric igniter not gettingh a good path to earth.

- to fix this sort of problems one needs to give the burner metal parts a very good clean of the fat/grease build ups - you will notice when the ignitor arcs it most probably runs all over the place. Further where its arcing to the frame these areas need to be cleaned with those green rough cloth used to scrub pots etc. it will remove the grit and lightly expose a bit of metal to make a better contact for the system to flash over..


Cheers

When i push igniter it clicks but burners won't come on and i do not even smell gas , i burped it and turned gas tank upside down once, still won't work, grill is only 5 yrs old.


It sound s like the grill's regulator is locked up from "burping" the tank. Hopefully it's not a permanent lockup. To hopefully solve the problem, follow the steps below:

1. Turn the tank valve OFF and disconnect the hose from the tank.
2. Turn the burner(s) ON for 1 Minute, Then turn them OFF.
3. After 5 minutes reconnect the hose to the tank and open the valve VERY, VERY, SLOWLY (Slow
motion, slow).
4. Once the tank valve is fully open light one burner and turn it to HIGH. Did the burner light and
does the flame height look correct? Id so, light the remaining burner the way. Did it light and the
flame height look correct? If so, you solved the problem (with a little help).

If the above didn't solve the problem, the Hose/regulator Assembly needs to be replaced. What happened was this, when you turned the tank upside to "burp" the tank. The OPD Valve shot a hot load of gas to the regulator, when you opened it, as you normally would and permanently locked up the grill's regulator. That "burping" trick used to work with the old style tanks. Won't work with the new ones. You can get a new hose/regulator assembly at any home center or hardware store, that sells grills and accessories. They run about $30.00. Take your old one with you for comparison purposes. Once you install the new one and connect it to the tank. Open the Valve Very, Very Slowly, until it is fully open. Or you may have the same problem again.

Hope this helped to solve the problem. Happy Grilling!!

My kenmore gas oven won't lite. I'm not sure if it's the electronic ignition since I don't hear any clicking noise. I just bought this stove it is used and about 8-10 yrs old. Is this something I can...


This sounds like a possible spark module problem it sends the correct voltage to the correct burner and if faulty sometimes wont light the burners atall. generally a gas technician would diagnose such a problem so i WOULD NOT recommend doing this yourself although no ``gas`` parts may be involved. I would need the correct model and the first two digit of the serial to search for a part number for you. hope this helps

Thanks

Not getting enough gas for high


There could be several things causing this problem. First, the burners need to be checked to see if they are stopped up. Grease and oils from grilling can clog them. Also incects like to make cosey homes in them over the winter months. Lastly, this problem could be the gas regulator going bad. Good luck!

Ge spectra gas stove top not lighting


If your top burners are not lighting or will not work, it is possible that the burners have become dirty or wet. Please follow the troubleshooting directions below before calling service:
  1. Turn you burner to the Lite position:

    If you hear clicking or sparking, go to Step 2.

    If you do not, check your circuit breakers. If the circuit breaker is ok, we recommend that you schedule service by calling 1-800-432-2737 or schedule service online.

  2. Clean the burner and electrode:

    First remove the burner grate, cap, and head. Use a needle or paper clip to poke through the holes on the burner head. Re-assemble and try the burner.

    Remove the burner grate, cap, and head. Even if it looks clean, wipe the tip of the electrode with a clean, dry paper towel and PRESS IT DOWN. Re-assemble and try the burner, again.

    Check to see if the burner works, If not, then go to Step 3.

  3. Re-assemble - Make sure that each burner top matches its burner bottom. The burner top will lay flat if put on correctly.

    Check to see if the burner works, If not, then go to Step 4.

  4. The spark igniter is operating properly, but the burner is still not lighting. At this point, we would recommend that you schedule service by calling 1-800-432-2737 or schedule service online.
