Question about KitchenAid KESC300 Electric Kitchen Range

Large Burners do not re-ignite

We've had a 6 burner kitchen aid stove (gas and electric)
just recently my husband replaced the porcelain black top because it was all scratched..etc. We ordered the part and he did it himself.
Now, we've noticed that once I use any of the larger burners 1x, and I shut it off and go to use it again within a 10 minute period or so, the gas goes on but there is no clicking to ignite it again.
any thoughts?

When you are having trouble igniting that one burner, have you tried the other burners?

If they're all the same - i.e. none of them will work at any particular time, that's the spark module.
If some work while one or more don't, that's the burner switches under the knobs.

I doubt this has anything to do with your husband's previous repair; that is, unless you find one of these wires pinched inside.

Good luck!

Can the cooktop surface of my Kenmore gas range model 790.72903011 be removed


Most stove tops are removable for that very purpose.... after you remove the burners and the grills above the burners.... look for an edge and inch or inch and a half below the top... get something strong like a large screwdriver and place cloth over the tip to prevent scratching the stove top. there are VERY STRONG CLIPS holding the stove top to the stove, pry upward until the clips release. then slowly remove the spark igniter (TAKE A PICTURE WITH YOUR CELL TO REMEMBER HOW PUT BACK TOGETHER)

Own a KitchenAid gas range superba, how do i clean the burner, one of my front burners the gas flow is very low, the stove has the glass/ceramic top with no wells & no way to get to the burners...only...


You'll need certified stove technician to service you kitchen Aid range. You have low gas flow on one of the burner. The manual gas control valve behind the knob needs to removed and cleaned. If you have one cleaned then have technician clear all four of these manual gas valves. While he cleaning the valve have do a complete check up of you Kitchen Aid range. Dangerous for the home owners to do this procedure because flowing natural gas or propane. In a lot the states you'll need to be certified by the state to work with natural gas, gas stove, ovens, gas home heating units, etc. It differentially a no,no here.

It is not the burners, it is gas flow valves for the burners. Most of the burner are made of aluminum and I wouldn't use any harsh cleaners of them. Check with Kitchen Aid and ask them what is recommend for cleaning the burners. Also the top of the range isn't ceramic but porcelain, it glass that has been melt to the top hood of the range. Don't use scratch pads, steel wool or any thing that will mare the Periclean surface of your stove.

If you can get the aluminum burner out to clean them then do so. GB you Allison and I wish you many year cooking on your Kitchen Aid range. stewbison

I have a 30" stainless steel cand black gas range with electronic oven control and self ignited burners. For some reason the burners won't self ignite they don't even spark but the gas is comin out. What...


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.

None of my stove top burners will spark to ignite


There is an ignition module that sparks when it calls for lighting. This module could have a loose connection or be dead.

Conversion from electric to lp gas


Simple answer NO.

Unless Jenn-air has a conversion kit. (highly doubt this)
It would be a serious undertaking to switch out 2 burners for LP use.
Gas tubes, igniters, electronics, regulator, gas jets.
Not to mention the modifications changes needed to the stove top to make all this work. That gas regulator has to go somewhere and piping from tank/regulator/burners.

Not saying it can't be done mind you.
But think about it long and hard before committing to this job.
Small gas leak can become a huge headache later.

Range top ignighters sparking


One of your "switches" to your burners is shorting causing unit to spark when in the off mode, or, you may have a bug problem, bugs have made their way into the spark module.

1: if no bug problem, disconnect stove from electricity, lift top up, remove all of the single connections to each switch to top burners(make sure they don't have any bare wires touching the frame), then plug unit back in, if still sparking then replace module.

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.

GE gas stove the burners on top work, the oven won't get hot


The most common reason a gas oven won't heat is a bad igniter. It is located near the valve and burner under the oven bottom. You can usually see it glow orange just before the fire lights. Most GE ranges take a cylindrical igniter part #WB2X9154 or #WB13K21 rectangular igniter.

Kenmore Elite Gas Stove


Will have to ask some basic questions first.  How old is the stove?  What is the entire model # from the sticker on the unit?  Is this LP or natural gas?  Also, make sure that the orifices in the center of the burners are clean (can use a safety pin or paper clip to poke them a few times to clean).  Make sure that the black caps are on top of the burners and seated properly or they will not lite.  Let me know what you find.
