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

I clean the burners and the ignite it is not working if i used a lighter the back tow burners will turn on but not the front ones


Sometimes when we clean the burners we get some debris or gunk into the gas outlets. I always take a toothpick and clean out the gas openings. Be very careful that you don't break the toothpick off in the opening. Once you've done this, use a lighter at the burner and turn on the gas. You should have a flame. Let the flame burn for about 5 minutes to burn off any more "gunk" that may be in there. Also, if your burners have covers, make sure they are in place before you light the burner.
Depending on the age of your range, you might need to clean around the igniter. Some are concealed and you can't reach them. Those that are not concealed can be cleaned by wiping with a soft, dry cloth.
I hope these suggestions help you get your range working again. If they do, please come back to Fixya and rate my advice!

Dryer will fire and light for about 3 minutes then the gas valve goes shut, igniter will then try to relight it but no gas


sounds like you have bad gas coils located on top of the gas valve,unplug dryer,remove the two phillips screws and lift off the cover,pull off wires and change out coils,give your parts store the model number and thet will sell you the coils,they come in a pack with both coils.easy fix.also when was the last time you cleaned out the dryer?it's gas so you should do this once a year,clean out the duct that the lint filter slides into,then clean out the cabinet where the motor and burner is,if you use a shop vac you can set the vac to blow and blow all the lint out of the motor and gas tube and blow the lint from the back to the front and vac it up so you don't have to remove the drum,then if your vent line is long i use a leaf blower to blow out the vent line,remove it from the back of the dryer,go outside and make sure there isn't a cage or screen on the outside vent,if there is remove it and don't reinstall it,it will hold the lint there and block the vent,if it's clear go back inside and blow out the line,i've seen birds nest fly out of the line also causing flame problems because the air has nowhere to go and the flame goes out.do this once a year,your clothes will dry on time,and you won't damage any parts from overheating problems.

Gas grill wont lite manuallly


Do you mean it won't match light or the ignitor won't spark and light the burners? Or both?

If it won't match light or the ignitor sparks, but the burners don't light, that means you're not getting gas to the burners.

Check to the tank valve and make sure it's turned ON. Also, make sure that there's gas in the tank.
If both of those check out as OK, turn the gas tank valve OFF. Disconnect the hose from the tank and wait 5 minutes. Reconnect the hose to the tank and turn the tank valve ON VERY, VERY SLOWLY (Slow motion, slow). Once the valve is fully open, light the burner farthest from the tank first and turn it to HIGH. Did the burner light and the flame height looks correct? If so, light the remaining burners following the same procedure. Now, are they all lit and the flames heights look correct? If so, you solve the problem. Just remember to always open the tank valve very, very slowly.

if the burners failed to light. Remove and clean all the burners, as well as the venturi valve on the open of each burner. Spiders like to build nest in the venturi valves.

if cleaning the burners did not solve the problem, you will need to replace the grill's hose/regulator assembly. You can find it in any home center or hardware store that sells gas grills and accessories, for about $30.00. Take you old one with you for comparison purposes.

Hope this helped you troubleshoot and solve the problem. Please be kind enough to let me know. Thanks and Happy grilling!!
