    The electirc panel lights up. The light goes on when you open the oven. I'm assuming that the igniters have died. How do you replace them? How do you lift the top of range to get underneath?

On a 4 burner Gas cooktop - all 4 burners get gas but why does the igniter only work with the front 2?


Usually that's caused by clogged holes in the burners. I clean it out using a toothpick.

Why would the left burner activate the right igniter?


Sometimes a lot of the holes in the burner get plugged. I use a toothpick to clean them out.

One of the burners won't ignite, yet you can hear the clicking.


Carefully check the burner by trying to light it with a long match or taper. If the burner will not light, then something is wrong with the burner gas flow. Carefully examine the igniter near the burner to ensure it is not touching the burner or is not damaged. Carefully look at another working burner igniter during the lighting process and compare the spark quality with the defective burner.

These steps will help you determine what the problem may be. You may have to call a service person to fix the problem in the end.

I have a stainless steel Ducane BBQ with five burners plus side burner and a rottisserie burner , which does not work. It is approx 5 years old and I have never used the rottisserie till last week. I have...


Since you've never used it. It may simply be a case that the infrared rotisserie burner is dirty and clogged with grease from cooking on the main burners. In addition, the Thermocouple and the igniter for that burner may also have a grease build up. In which case it won't allow the burner to light.

The electronic igniter that lights the main burners, also ignites the the rotisserie burner. Are you geting the click noise on the main burner igniters? If not, the battery in the igniter button needs to be replaced. Be sure to take note of the way the old battery is facing, when you unscrew the igniter cap. Because, that's the way the new battery should face.

Also, try match lighting the rotisserie burner. To do this, turn the Rotisserie Burner's Control Knob to the ON position and push it in, as you touch the lit match to the burner. If the burner lights continue to hold the burner knob in for a couple of minutes. This allows the Thermocouple and the ceramic plaques to heat up completely. Then slowly release the burner knob and the burner should remain lit.

If it doesn't stay lit, clean the burner and the Thermocouple ,in the manner that is described in your Owner's Manual.

Hope this helps you troubleshoot and solve the problem. Please let me know and Happy Grilling!!

On our 6 burner gas coocktop, the right two burners don't light


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.

Ge profile gas range. one burner with no clicking and no ignition


You may have a bad burner switch. If you turn one of the other burner switches to make the spark modules spark look and see if the electrode is sparking at the bad burner. Most of the spark modules send a spark to all 4 burners when activated. If it sparks when another burner is activated open the valve and see if the burner will ignite. If so you probably have a bad burner switch.

I have a JGP636 or 960. One burner won't do


When you turn the burner knob on does the igniter click and turn off on it's own when the flame ignites? If it does then it has flame rectification. That means it can sense when the flame is on. Or does it click when the knob is in the light position and not stop until you move the burner knob? Then this is standard ignition. If it is standard ignition it sounds like it is the igniter switch built into the burner knob might be defective. Are you able to turn on any burner knob and when they are in the igniter position do all the electrodes spark or just the burner that you are turning on? If they all come on then they are wired in a series. If they are wired in a series do you get a spark at the electrode of the problem igniter? If so you can turn on one of the other burners to ignition position then while it is clicking turn on the problem burner to light it. If the cooktop uses flame rectification then there may be a problem with the switch built into the burner knob or the flame rectification sensor for that burner might be bad.

Igniter clicks on the wrong burner


The spark supposes to go to all burners. The spark igniter of the non working burner needs to be replaced.

All of the sudden my front right burner will not light. I clicks like it wants to light and you can smell the gas but it will not light.All the other burners are working fine.


Take a look at the burner when it is clicking and make sure the igniter electrode is creating a spark. If the burner head is removable pull off the burner cap and head. Inspect the burner head for debris and clean. Make sure any small holes on the burner head are not plugged. There is usually a small hole where the electrode is that a gas must exit for proper ignition. If the burner has a center igniter for two burners then inspect the flash tube for that burner and make sure it is centered and there is no obstructions in the flash tube. On that burner there are little holes located in front of the flash tube call step-up ports. Check to make sure those little holes are not plugged.

Stove burner igniter does not work.


Your problem is not the igniter itself, but the burner switch that controls the igniter. All the igniters get their power from one spark module that is mounted somewhere in back of the oven. That's why you are able to get all the igniters to spark with only one burner control turned on. This is normal. That is also why you are able to light the burner in question buy turning on another burner. The spark is being provided by a switch that is working. To answer your question: the igniter is removable, but I don't think it's necessary. Cleaning them generally doesn't make them work better. I would check the wiring from the spark module to the burner switch and/or replace the switch. I hope this helps.
