Kenmore gas range when no clicking when turning the oven on


Get FREE Standard Shipping on orders of $100 or more. Details
Range: Gas burner won't spark or ignite A surface burner igniter switch and a spark module activate the spark electrode when a burner is turned to the "Lite" position on a gas range's cooktop. If the surface burner switch, spark module or wiring in that circuit fails, the spark electrode won't work, and as a result the gas burner won't light. If those components work but the electrode won't spark, the problem could be that the spark electrode is coated with spilled food of is bent or broken. In addition, the electrode won't spark or ignite the burner properly if the ceramic insulation sleeve below the tip of the electrode is cracked or broken. If the gas burner isn't lighting, these repairs may help.

Replace the spark igniter electrode

1396454293470.jpg The spark igniter electrode-also called the surface burner igniter-is an insulated electrode that provides an ignition spark to light a surface gas burner. It sparks and makes a ticking sound when the burner switch is turned to the Lite position. Replace the spark ignition electrode if it fails to spark or if the ceramic insulation sleeve is cracked or chipped. How to Replace a Spark Igniter Electrode in a Gas Range Find This Part

Replace the surface spark module

1377098014986.jpg The surface spark module is in the ignition circuit for the gas surface burners. When a surface burner control knob is turned to the "Lite" position, it provides voltage to the spark electrodes on the gas surface burners. If the surface spark module fails to provide the electrodes with voltage, then it should be replaced. Find This Part

Replace the spark igniter switch

1396454315355.jpg The igniter switch is an electrical switch on the stem of the gas surface burner control valve. This switch completes a circuit to the surface burner spark module, causing the burner igniters to spark when the burner switch is turned to the Lite position. Replace the burner igniter switch if the burners don't spark when you turn the burner control knob to the Lite position or if igniters spark constantly even when the burner knobs are in the Off position.

Beckett burner adjustment


that's really not a question. do you need to adjust a burner or an electrode? the question that is not a question is not clear. my 6 year old can write with complete sentences.

adjusting a grill burner is usually a process of adjusting the gas flow through the orifice and adjusting the air shutter that allows oxygen to mix with gas as gas flows into the burner. The only other adjustment that affects the burner is not always on every control valve but if it is there, look down inside the valve stem. If there is a tiny flat-head screw there that is an adjustment for gas flowing through the control valve. The orifice, air-shutter, valve stem adjustment is all there is but that is a tremendous amount of control for a simple gas burner that is a solid material with no moving parts.

if the question is adjusting the electrode, an electrode is only a miniature spark plug. the only adjustment is setting the gap. aside from that we can make sure the ground is clean and connected tight, make sure the power source is strong and make sure the tip of the electrode and where ever it will spark is clean. One well-placed drop of grease will foul an electrode so the grease needs to be cleaned from the tip and from aound the tip for a spark to have a clean place to arc against.

Took apart electrode assembly & cleaned--replaced with proper nozzle .75 x 80A- -re-gapped with beckett gauge---was that rite or is there a gauge for the bock water heater or wayne burner? Nees proper...


The nozzle size and gap completely are designed to each burner, if the bock water heater had a becket burner than you would be okay with the gap, if not then what I would do is check the manufactures manual for proper nozzles and gaps of electrode assembly

Flame sputters


Hey welcome to the world of oil burner service!! :-) Theyare a finnicky beast to say the least. The problem you are having sounds like an air mixture problem. A combustion analyser would be the best tool to have but being that you probably don't have that try this. On the left side of the burner as you are looking at it is an air adjust ment ring and a fine tuning ring. the fine tuning ring is probably all you need to adjust. There is a screw that is usually right behind or near the pipe coming out of the pump and going into the burner. Loosen that and turn the ring away from you just a bit to close off some of the air and you will be fine. The burner is running a bit to lean. If you can see the flame turn the adjustment closed just until the flame color turns from a almost white color to a slightly orange color. Then you should be fine. Good luck!!

Amana stove top burners click, and gas comes out, but won't ignite. It's a self cleaning ARG7200, about 11 or 12 years old. Oh, and can I lift this top? I'm used to doing that with old pilot-light...


A weak erratic spark from one or more electrode usually indicates a bad spark module. No spark from one of the electrodes while the others work properly usually indicates a bad electrode. Inspect the porcelain of the electrode for cracks, chips or burn marks. If there are any, the electrode should be replaced. If one of the burner knobs is turned to the light position and nothing happens, but all the others function correctly, the spark ignition switch for that one burner is likely bad. The switch can be taken out of the system and checked with an ohmmeter. It should close for continuity at the light position only.

My becket honeywell r7184p oil burner monitor is not resetting it keeps blinking a fast green. What should i be looking for?


my Beckett oil burner with a honeywell R7184P just did the same thing. Quit burning, blinks for half a second. The burner says press reset once, if it does not reset then call a local serviceman. It is cold here in Alaska, you betcha', and my oil must have jelled up. It happened once, but pressing reset solved my problem, two days later it stopped again. I applied heat (hair dryer) to my supply line, added an anti-jelling solution to my tank. Here is what I found.

"The Honeywell R7184P-1080 (interrupted control—transformer shuts down 10 seconds after flame is established) is now the standard control used on all Beckett oil burners along with the new “Cleancut” pump. The Honeywell control has both a 15 second pre-purge and a 15 second post purge feature, as well as internal self-checking of the control itself. The control has 15 second lockout timing plus a 10 second ignition carry over period. After 3 lockouts during the same call for heat, the control goes into restricted lockout., A restricted lockout condition may be reset by holding the reset button down for 30 seconds until the LED flashes twice. At any time the control is powered, the reset button may be held for 30 seconds to reset the lockout counter. There are several new “Service Features” with the R7184P control that make for easier servicing."

You have to press the reset button for thirty seconds. I don't know how cold it it there, or what number oil you guys are burning, but what I do know is that you guys have been pressing your reset button more than once.

This worked for me. Good luck.
