Stove top difficult to light

When I try to light my Kitchenaid stove the stove top just clicks for several minutes trying to ignite. It usaually starts off with a small flame even on high and as it warms up the flame gets to where it should be. After it runs for a few minutes I can turn it on and relight it or turn on another burner with no problem.

    We are having the same problem and the house stinks like gas because of it. did you find a solution yet? We are going to try blowing compressed air into the injectors to see if there is any debris in it. I hope it works. Good luck.

Your gas jets are dirty.. clean them with a toothbrush (after everything is cooled down).. you can use the selfclean to clean the iron pieces that cover the burners..

be careful with kitchen aid self cleaning.. there is a known issue with the thermal fuses blowing quite easily on most self cleaning cycles..

good luck

How do you light the oven? We turn the dial and


I take it the range is electric ignition because you say the top burners have a clicking(igniter) noise. If the top burners are electric ignition then the oven is also. The oven probably uses a hot surface igniter and that is why you do not hear any clicking. Turn the oven on and open the broiler compartment. You should see a bright glow from the hot surface igniter. If you do not see any glow there may be a grounding issue or the igniter could be bad. If you do see a glow but the burner does not come on in a few minutes then give the gas valve a tap with a wrench and see if the burner comes on. Shut it off and then back on several times. If the burner continues to light after this you may have fixed the problem. If it does not come on gas valve could be sticking or igniter is weak.

Kitchenaid gas stove left back burner won't light. hear clicking


I have one of the kitchenaide gas ranges and if the burner cap is not set on PERFECTLY straight, the gas doesn't flow properly and will not ignite. Try lifting and replacing the cap back down on the burner and see if this solves it.

If your top burners are not lighting or will not work, it is possible that the burners have become dirty or wet. Please follow the troubleshooting directions below before calling service:
  1. Turn you burner to the Lite position:

    If you hear clicking or sparking, go to Step 2.

    If you do not, check your circuit breakers. If the circuit breaker is ok, we recommend that you schedule service by calling 1-800-432-2737 or schedule service online.

  2. Clean the burner and electrode:

    First remove the burner grate, cap, and head. Use a needle or paper clip to poke through the holes on the burner head. Re-assemble and try the burner.

    Remove the burner grate, cap, and head. Even if it looks clean, wipe the tip of the electrode with a clean, dry paper towel and PRESS IT DOWN. Re-assemble and try the burner, again.

    Check to see if the burner works, If not, then go to Step 3.

  3. Re-assemble - Make sure that each burner top matches its burner bottom. The burner top will lay flat if put on correctly.

    Check to see if the burner works, If not, then go to Step 4.

  4. The spark igniter is operating properly, but the burner is still not lighting. At this point, we would recommend that you schedule service by calling 1-800-432-2737 or schedule service online.

There is nothing fancy about how the gas controls work on this unit. Do all burners give you the same problem? If so, it could be a kinked service hose or a service valve that has been partly shut. If it is limited to a single burner or two, the valve may be gummed up and should be replaced.

There are several screws under the front lip of top of the range. You will have to open the oven door to see them. Once the screws are removed, the top should just lift up. Of course, if it has been a couple of years, grease and oil can creep into the seams along the sides and cause the top to stick. If this is the case, carefully take a putty knife along the side seams and lift up at the same time on the front. The top should open. Now, if ALL your burners are not lighting, that sounds like a bad spark module. Do you hear a clicking noise when you try to light any of the top burners? If not, the spark module not the igniters, is the likely suspect. The spark module provides a voltage to ALL the igniters simultaneously. Removing the top will not be necessary if this is the case. The spark module is usually located in the back of the oven cavity under bottom pan of the oven. Or, it may be located behind the panel in the rear of the stove. Let me know if this helps you.
