Burners won't light

The back burners light automatically but the front burners don't. I've cleaned all the parts. I have to light the front burners with a match. How can I resolve this problem? thanks

    I have a GE Tru Temp gas range. The back left burner will not ignite despite more than several attempts to clean the sparker/igniter with a brush, rag, etc. I'll try the repositioning. Anything else to consider? Thanks in advance.

Hi there,

Sounds like an igniter problem. Sometimes the tips of the igniters burn and don't give out the spark to light the burners. Check for a spark from the igniter on the front burners. Also sometimes the igniters drop down a little - may just need re-positioning. Compare the front igniters with the back to see how they should spark. You may need to replace the front igniters. Hope this helps.

Regards
Bryan

2 of my 4 burners on my Magic Chef Pilotless Ignition oven/stovetop no longer ignite - I need to do it by hand. Every once in a while one works but mostly neither will light up - other 2 work fine. Do


If you are seeing sparking coming from ignitor then it would be more likely that the ignitor has gotten out of position and would need to be put back to proper positioning. If the ignitor is not sparking then you would want to get a new ignitor. Here is the ignitor to order.
There is a video on that same parts page to show you how to make the repair.

Low flame on left front burners high flame onright front burnners


That is food/grease buildup. Clean the holes. TURN OFF GAS to stove, then just clean the holes in the burners with a soft wire brush. Then turn gas back on and immediately relight pilot lights. If that sounds scary, call your gas company, they might come out and help.

Gas burner with hot jello spill spark won't turn off


Sounds like the sensor telling it that the burner is on is shorted out with the jello. turn off the power so you don't get shocked and then give the entire assembly a good cleaning.

Sears Kenmore gas stove, the front left and the left and right rear burners turn on when the knob is turned to the lite position. The right front burner doesn't turn on when put lite position. N


If there is no clicking sound like you hear when you turn on the other burners than I'm going to say that either the electrode is bad or the spark switch, which is what you turn to turn on the burner to begin with. Both parts are cheap so it may be a good maintenance thing to change all of the burners. Make sure you have your model and go to www.repairclinic.com and order both parts, and if you don't need one send it back for a full refund even if you installed it. good luck

Back burners wont light


Remove the back burners top lids and using a good blower jet and a good brush clean up the areas around it. this must allow the mixing of the gas properly. try to light. if this wont solve you will need to open the front flow controller, remove the knob, check from within after opening the top lid for the jet screw, open and clean and use a pin for cleaning. reset the flow controller after checking for gas flow into the flow controller. now set back and the burner should light up. Hope this helps you out. Good day

Front burner slow in lighting on jenn-air stove top. All other burners light quickly. Could it be the ignighter? Can I switch out ignighters with a back burner that we seldom use?


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.

Top right burner on hotpoint gas range doesn't light


there is a spark ignition in the middle between the front and back burners....one for the left side and one on the right side. When it was cleaned i bet that the spark ignitor was slightly bent towards the front burner...now the gap is too big to fire the rear burner...the ignitor is very similar as the spark made in those push down lighters. so its safe to play around and adjust them as needed to make them work...Go ahead and take it apart and tinker with adjusting it...until you get both front and rear burners running again the way it was before.( peek at the otherside as a reference and try to make it match)
I hope this helps you out a little bit 8-)
