Hi does the igniter stay on if the gas is not alight or is it only when its alight. if this is the case then you probably going to need to replace the ignition lighter switch as these often are the cause of the problem usually due to grease sometimes removing all components and cleaning can resolve the problem.
The main problem with doing this is its not easy to get to the switch as you will need to remove alot of the oven to get to the switch and im not sure how yours would come undone as mine is different oven all together but as mine had same problem this is your most likely cause

Nothing bad can happen if the ignitors stay on but it can be annoying. I remember reading something about this I will try to look it up again.

SOURCE: Problem with getting burner to light.

All my ignitors spark when I turn one of them on. I'v been told it is normal. I had a problem before and the tech that replace the ignitor said the issues is with alignment. Try to rotate the burner a bit left or right and see if it fixes it.

SOURCE: both right burner ignitors do not spark while both

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.

My Ruud achhiever 90 starts to fire but as soon as the blower fires the burner goew out. I also noticed that the "igniter" on the end isnt firing. Could that cause the burner to not stay lit when the


There is an ignitor and a flame sensor. If the ignitor does not ignite the gas after a time, it goes out. If the flame sensor does not detect ignition the gas valve closes. When you start it you should see the ignitor come on like a light bulb and glow, then the gas valve opens and you get ignition. Then the flame detector turns on when the ignitor goes out. Flame detectors are like a chrome wire that has one connection to it and it sits part of the way in a burner. They get dirty and corroded. When that happens it shuts down. You can clean the flame detector with steel wool of scotch brite pads. Dont get too carried away doing that though.

My stove lights very slow with a low flame. Should the igniter stay on after it lights oven


Yes the ignitor stays on even after the burner is lit. The ignitor is wired in series with the oven valve. It sounds like the oven valve isn't opening all the way. A new ignitor should solve this problem. The old igniter builds up resistance and doesn't let the correct voltage through to the oven valve for it to open properly.

The oven pilot does not light. The broiler will not work. The only thing that does is the light. GE XL44 range. The burners light and the pilots stay lit.


    If you have standing pilots, make sure the pilot for the oven/broiler is lit as well.  When you turn the thermostat up to call for heat, you should see the pilot get larger. That larger pilot flame heats a hydraulic sensor and opens the main burner valve.

    May have a dirty flame rod. Look in the burner box at either the far right or far left for a probe that sticks in the flame of a burner. There will be only one wire going to it. This rod is a safety sensor that shuts off the gas if it does not sense flame within a few seconds. If you brush off the rod with a toothbrush or Scotch Brite pad it may take care of your problem. If not, make sure the flame travels from burner to burner quickly. The burner tray may need to be brushed off.

    The ignition keeps on sparking after the burner is lit.


    How old oof a unit is it? The burners switches when on will operate ignitors for all burners no matter which switch is "turned on". Usually when units get older these switches on the most "often used" burners will stick and stay "connected" then all ignitors will continue to spark this is also true if switches accidentally get wet with spillage or water till they dry out. No danger though because jsut because ignitor is sparking doesnt mean gas is being released, gas is only released when valves are turned on

    I have a goodman gmpn 100-4 REVB furnace that will not stay lit


    If the igniter lights the burners the ignitor..... is not bad. Its like a light bulb.... it works or ot doesn't.
    You are describing a dirty flame sensor. Dishonest contractors will sell you a new ignitor but clean the flame sensor when the are installing the ignitor. It is located at the opposite end of the burners than the ignitor. It has one wire going to it. Remove it and clean the rod with a piece of fine grit sandpaper. this should be done every year before heating season.
    Good luck
