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.

Hello Danny, I have seen replacement knobs at Home Depot and Lowe's Hardware. Write down the make and model number of your stove and take a knob with you to compare.

The electric igniters for the stove burners stopped working. All four stopped at the same time.


If all 4 stopped working at the same time, the problem is with the spark modulator.

If the igniter is working on several of the burners but not on another, (or any variation), the problem is with the igniter wiring harness.

By design, the igniter for each burner is daisy chained in the wiring harness such that if one goes, the others will still work.

Nobs on stove won't go off


For starters turn the electric off. Is your range gas or electric? When you turn the knobs to off do the lights stay on? What brand and model number do you have?

Kenmore elite gas range clicking sound


If unplugging it for a couple minutes and plugging back in does not rectify then it sounds like a bad spark module or a shorted wire inside. All 4 should spark at the same time when any burner is used. (Does trying to light a burner make the other 2 spark too?)

Gas stove makes clicking noise when turning on


When a gas stove is clicking, it means it is trying to ignite the burner. If the knob is held in the ignite position for more then 3 seconds and the burner does not ignite, it means that (1) the gas is shut off to the stove, (2) she does not have gas service set-up yet at the apartment, or (3) the gas nozzles feeding the burner are dirty and clogged.

Most of the time, when you move to a new apartment, you need to call the gas company and have the gas turned on, unless it is included in your rent. Either way, when a house or apartment is unoccupied, the gas is turned off for safety reasons. I would contact the landlord to be sure.

I do not know either but I would be tempted to turn off the gas, but keep the electric to the oven, and use a plastic Knitting needle to find out. It should show on a display somewhere.
