Only 2 potential culprits in this case.

The Control Valve (behind the control knob) is bad... or the gas outlet on top of the stove is clogged with food :D

Take it apart and give it a good cleaning or replace.

Infared burners ignitor won't work


Mike, have you replaced the battery in the igniter button ye? That's the first place to start troubleshooting. Be sure you install the new battery facing the same direction as the old battery. Also, check the interior contacts of the battery holder for corrosion. If you find any, use a Q-Tip sprayed with a little WD40 to clean it.

If the above doesn't solve the problem, trace the igniter wire from the igniter button to the spark igniter at the burner for damaged wire or a loose connection.

And finally, try match lighting the infrared burners to make sure that they are getting an adequate flow of gas.

Hope this helped you t troubleshoot and solve the problem. Happy Grilling and thanks for choosing FixYa.

One burner wont light of the 3


Is the igniter not sparking or is gas not getting to that burner? Have you tried to match light that burner? Those three things is where you start troubleshooting the problem

If the igniter is not sparking, it could be that the igniter is covered with cooking grease or the wire to the igniter has come loose either at the igniter or the igniter module. And simply needs to be reattached (pushed back on).

If the burner won't match light, than it's not getting gas and should be removed and thoroughly cleaned. And while you're at it, remove and clean all the burners and the venturis valves.

Removing the buner burners on a Ducane grill is a bit of a task, so I have included a link to your Owners Manual to assist you. Pay particular attention to the section Annual Maintenance, starting on page # 28.

Hope this helped you troubleshoot and solve the problem. Please let me know and Happy Grilling!!

I have a magic chef oven model # 61S04PAW. the


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.

G.E Profile gas cook top #JGP640 ignitor.


It is sparking because the module does not sense the heat which would normally cause the sparking to stop.

It can be caused by a poor ground, make sure the ignitor at that burner is clean and free from any obstructions. If it is then it could either be a defective ignitor or spark module.
