    There is no spark from any of the 6 burners - can smell gas so I know it is getting gas.

  • cathiehu Nov 13, 2008

    I have the same problem and all 4 of my burners are not working. No clicking. Gas is getting to all burners, the wires all seem in good condition and clean and the outlet is plugged in...help? Time for a new stove top? Costly repair?

    Same problem, no clicking and problem just started. lights on and ovens fire but no apparent power to igniters ( all 6 ).

  • regimat Mar 22, 2009

    We recently moved into a new home with a gas stove that is 3 years old. We tested the burners and the front left burner has gas flow (can smell the gas and feel flow from the edges of the burner) the ignighter clicks and we can see a spark but the burner does not light. The other problem is that the center burner (long oval--shaped burner) only lights 1/2 way around. Any suggestions?

Is it a (relatively) new stove - i.e. piezoelectric spark igniters?

If so, is there a "lite" or "pilot" (or some such) position on the knob? On most stoves you have to turn the knob to that position, it starts clicking, you may smell a little gas, and then it lights.

Is that happening?

When you turn it to the lite position, can you see a little spark in burner. Often these igniters stop working and need to be replaced.

Let me know.

    If there's no spark, is there clicking?



    If there's NO clicking, the the igniter part of the stove is not plugged in or wired in. ALL 6 burners not working says electricity is not getting to where it needs to get. her may be lights or counters or timers on your stove, but that doesn't mean that the igniters are connected.



    It seems un-likely that you'd have SIX bad ingniters which means go back to the snd paragraph. Let me know.

3 stove top burners will light with electric ignition and 4th ok with assistance


Sounds like the sparker is in trouble. Get the oven details and ask your appliance dealer or go online to an appliance spares site. Before you spend any money, have a second opinion from an experienced person. You may have to remove the oven top to expose the igniters. Find a handbook, this level of checks is usually in the owners manual.

Gas smell when using and not using


follow this steps and fix it. God bless you

f the pilot light on your stove goes out, natural gas may build up in your stove. If your pilot light has gone out, open the kitchen windows and doors for 15 minutes to let the gas dissipate safely then relight the pilot light. Do not relight the pilot light immediately -- striking a match could cause an explosion.
Gas Leak

  • If you can smell the sulfur-like or rotten egg smell of gas, there may be a gas leak inside or outside your home. You might also hear a hissing sound coming from the stove or another appliance or from a pipeline. Outside gas leaks may kill or stunt nearby vegetation. Signs of carbon monoxide poisoning include nausea, dizziness, fatigue and other flu-like symptoms.

f you still smell gas after relighting the pilot light, don't hesitate. Leave your home, along with the rest of your family and pets, then call your utility company or 911 from a safe location. Leave the doors and windows open behind you, especially if the odor is strong or you can hear the hissing of a gas leak. Do not turn appliances or lights on or off or use a phone in your home. Do not strike a match or use a lighter, either. Prevention

How do you light the pilot light on the stove? Model 3627391592


Hello,

A pilot light will be found on natural gas stoves, fireplaces, clothes dryers, water heaters and furnaces. When the gas is turned off, the pilot light will go out on all of these appliances. After the gas is turned back on, you must relight the pilot light before you can use the appliance. Pilot lights are similar so if you can relight the pilot light for a gas heater you can relight the pilot light for a gas stove or any other gas appliance.


jQuery('.intro .thumbnail').each(function(i,e){ jQuery(e).find('img').one('error',function(){ jQuery(e).remove(); }); }); Instructions Things You'll Need:

  • matches OR flashlight
  1. Locate the gas valve by following the gas line in the appliance. The gas valve will have a large red button or knob and will be easy to see and will be well marked.
  2. Check for a gas leak by smelling the area close to the gas valve. Listen carefully for escaping gas and do not attempt to light a pilot light if there is a gas leak.
  3. Hold down or press the red button or knob on the gas valve while holding a lit match in front of the opening in the gas pilot line. Continue to hold down or press the red button or knob for several seconds after the gas ignites to allow the thermocouple (the sensor for the appliance's thermostat) to heat up.
  4. Repeat step 3 if the pilot light goes out after you release the button or knob. In most cases, the pilot light goes out because the thermocouple did not have enough time to heat up, so give it a few more seconds.
  5. Make final adjustment of the gas flow to the pilot light by turning the red knob. In some cases, no adjustment other than "on" or "off" will be needed.
  6. Turn on our appliance to make sure the pilot light ignites the main gas flow. Replace any covers or close any access doors to the gas valve.
Hope this help?

Thanks for using fixya.

I turn on the stove and it lights and then it dies, then it won't turn on anymore. The other pilots don't turn on either. It worked this morning and when I came home this is the problem I encountered.


Ok, now that I know it's natural gas, what I would like for you to do is fire off the other gas appliances (furnace, water heater, etc) you have in the house to see if you having a similar problem with them as well. If so, you may may a regulator problem (at the meter) and will need to contact your gas co to replace or repair their equipment. If not, and the problem is isolated to the stove only, then you may have a defective appliance regulator, which supplies gas to all the burners on the stovetop and the oven. How old is the stove? Is it still under warranty? If so, you can call G.E. and have them service the stove for free.

Oven won't light ingiter ok


Replace the ignitor first, even if it is glowing. Ignitors grow weak over the years and won't allow the gas valve to open up. So far on every gas oven with this problem that I have run into, it has always been a bad ignitor. Good Luck, Appliance Specialists

Ge spectra gas stove top not lighting


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.

Ge spectra gas stove top not lighting


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.

Does this oven glows before igniting the gas in the oven? if it does this unit uses a glow bar ignitor in the oven and spark module for the top burners.If it you dont see the spark( or hear the ticking sound the there will be no ignition. Do you smell gas even if there was no ignition happening? If there's gas that eliminate your gas regulator. If it's only one burner with spark but gas won't come on then your gas valve is deffective. But if there's gas and no spark ten it could be poor grounding, wiring, connection or switch or even spark module problem. You to need call your local Appliance service provider on this one. I do not recommend anyone fixing gas related problem if they are not a qualified servicer.
