    Sounds like a bigger problem. Do you know for sure you have power to the appliance? There maybe a transformer or something that supplies power to all igniters.

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.

Maytag atlantis model #mdg7600aww how do i light pilot

This gas dryer uses automatic ignition. Their is no pilot. The gas valve assembly consists of a glowbar/ignitor, a flame detection sensor and a pair of coils all cleverly wired in a complex series circuit. When the fuse allows the control to flow power to the gas assembly all of the gas assembly components are energized. The coils cannot open the valve however as long as the ignitor is glowing. When it gets red hot it heats the bimetal inside the flame detector which shuts off the power to the ignitor. When the ignitor glows it holds open one of the gas coils. The other gas coil has enough juice for it to open, then ignition occurs. Depending on how many clothes is in the drum and how wet they are detirmins a burn period. With nothing in the drum it heats up to temp promptly and therefore the gas stays on a shorter period of time. So what can go wrong? The fuse mounted next to the control on the blower housing will melt if the blower wheel is wobbly and worn out or their is a lint build up causing air flow blockage. The control stat might be bad (doubtful) unless it ain't shutting down and is melting the fuse. If power is indeed getting to the gas assembly I would check the sensor first. if it is open circuit no power will get to the ignitor. If that is fine check the ignitor for continuity. Note: If it works a little but quits, replace them solenoid coils on the assembly. When they get aged they tend to quit when hot. My home movie of how it works:

The gas assembly consists of: The ignitor, the flame sensor, and the solenoid coils. The ignitor and flame sensor are either going to be good or bad no in between. The only thin in there that can get intermittent is them solenoids. They get hot and quit but after a long while they cool back down and work another time. themobilian_2450.jpg

Oven quit working . Stove top burners work just

if its an electric start. then the problem is usually the ignitor for oven. if you change this yourself, be carefull they are very fragil. hold on to igniter by its base. slide ignitor into steel case then install. and hook up the 2 wires for ignitor.

My daughter was driving my van and lost ALL power. at the same time. all systems went down, and the tranmission gear box locked. any ideas?

Sounds like the alternator quit. You can get a fresh battery in there and go about 20 miles till it drains, but it won't run without the alternator or the battery. If that is not the problem the Ignitor under the seat is bad, I would try the battery first, it is a lot cheaper than the ignitor. I'm not sure what it is called or where yours might be located, but that is where mine was. But the ignitor wouldn't kill the whole car like the alternator would. I hope this helps.

22 year old Hotpoint gas dryer. The ignitor coil will not light despite cleaning dust from the area. No ignition, no heat.The coil has quit from time to time but usually will light up with a good cleaning....

Power for ignitor comes down from timer switch and on to the gas valve. Any three of which could cause the problem. To test it correctly, you need to check power through all three components.

1986 zl 600 eliminator. Quits while driving.

I had a similar problem. Mine would continue running, but it felt like it dropped cylinders. Sputtered, backfires...etc. Check your ignitor box (under the seat, attached to the rear fender. Start the bike up to operating temp, and if it does the problem, the tech that fixed mine squeezed the ignitor box, and it returned to normal. Got a new one checking salvage yards online.

Oven takes a long time to preheat

You don't list a full model number or how old this range is, or how long / how often you have this problem, but generally it sounds like the oven ignitor is not quite drawing enough amps to allow the gas valve to open regularly. It could be a low voltage related issue, but most likely is a failing oven ignitor. ( WB2X9154)
