Yes, it most likely is the ignitor. Chances are it simply needs to be cleaned (ignitor, burner etc.)

If cleaning it does not solve the problem, I reccomend replacing it with a new one.

A malfunction of that type causes gas buildup and can result in excessive ignition when it finally does light. As they get worse, they litterally create mini explosions and can become fire hazzards.

For that reason I reccomend that you do not use that ignitor on any burner with such a malfunction.

You should be able to find a new ignition assembly at your local appliance parts warehouse, or by calling the manufacturer.

Some how you have disconnected the sensor that tells the main burner that the fan is on. Its trying to light but cant. On some models there is a air pressure switch that reads the pressure inside the vent pipe itself. It will have a small hose on it and if that has cracked or was not replaced it wont light. This is how its supposed to work--- vent fan comes on,sensor confirms fan is on,hot surface ignighter starts to glow red,and main burner is opened,another sensor confirms that main burner is lit,then hot surface ignighter turns off. Hope this helps.

One burner has no spark for ignition..


Hi,
Yes this is arcing, and should be replaced. If it is still atatched, you may be able to move it away from an area that it is arcing onto, and give it a try. Wery often it is just items in close proximity that causes the issue.

Whenever i light the gas top wolf range, the ignighters on other burners keep firing


Hello,

The electrode (spark plug) for that burner is not telling the spark module the burner is lit and go ahead and turn off the spark. That electrode and the wiring on it need to be replaced,from that burner back to the spark module.


I hope this helps you to repair the problem with you stove,
Gene

Model CVGX2423W ignighter sparks at all four bunners if only trying to light one


Every time you try to light just one burner the ignighter will try to light them all. The reason why is that they are all wired to the same switch under the cook top. There is nothing to be worried about. That is the way the factory made the cook top.

Viking gas stove operators manual....I was working on my stove ...it was not lighting up....the stove......and I noticed that there was 2 burners...and when I replaced one of the ignighters and tryed the...


The way it works is the igniter gets voltage signal from the control and will start to glow. The gas valve for the burner and the igniter are wired on the same circuit. When the igniter starts to glow it takes all the voltage from the circuit. As the igniter increases in temp the resistence changes and the voltage starts to travel to the gas valve. Once the gas valve registers 3 to 4 volts it will open allowing gas to the burner for ignition. The igniter needs to reach approx 2200 degrees for this to happen. So it could be the igniter or the gas valve. The igniter should test approx 500 to 700 ohms with a ohm meter. The gas valve could also be sticking. If the igniter is glowing bright and you tap the gas valve with a wrench and it comes on then the gas valve is sticking and needs replacement(as long as the igniter tests good)...Hope that helps.

It is not the cartridge. It is the ignition switch (sometimes called a cooktop switch) I found mine on ebay. In particular it is a faulty rear switch. Save your money on the cartridge.
