Question about Sears 61301 Gas Kitchen Range
If the gas isn't on isn't the stove still Suppose to make the clicking noise? I just bought a used one and it dosnt make the noise.is the suppose to be a plug in the back of the stove because there isn't one and I thought it should have one.
Most modern gas ranges do have an electric pilot light. This one however does not. Normally you should always get the ignition (clicking noise) whenever you turn the temperature control knob. Provided that the stove is plugged into an electrical source. If you are not, then your ignitor could be out. Replacing it is fairly easy with a difficulty scale of 5/10.
But on to your problem. If you lift the lid on the stove top you will see two holes about halfway between the front and rear burners. Just connect the stove to a gas source and put a match or lighter to this hole. Don't worry, it won't blow up or flare up on you. You will need to do the same thing to the oven. If you open the broiler part of the stove, use a flashlight and look inside. You will see a similar type of gas line. Do the same with a match or lighter.
As with all gas appliances, ALWAYS check your gas lines for leaks using soapy water. If you see bubbles after spraying the solution on, then you have a leak and shouldn't turn the gas on until it's foxed. Use yellow Teflon tape or "pipe dope" on all gas connections.

If you have no ignition on any top burner, the ignition transformer has failed. This is a high voltage transformer and is probably located in the control panel of the range.
