Question about Kitchen Ranges

Knob no longer controls burner


With the dual burner on this range, the burner is working independently of the knob position. I try to turn on the burner and nothing happens or I try to only turn on the smaller burner and both burners come on. Now, I have the knob in the off position and the smaller burner keeps cycling on and off. I have small kids nad it is scary to think the stove may not be off when it says it is-

thanks- Lisa

Either the knob has gone out or the burner element. I would test the knob first to see if there is current when turned to the large zone. If the knob is working, next would be to test the burner to see if the outer ring has burned out. I would guess more likely the control has gone out. Burners have less failure (typically).

Hi Cecchung,

I think I know it.
Modern cookers have semi automatic ignition. Behind every knob there is a hidden switch and the switches are wired in "parallel". That means, when one button is put in "sparkstand", all plugs will spark. At least it should be.
In the youtube movie you can see how these switches are in a string.
So I suppose that the switch behind the button for the main burner does not work.
Fortunately, you still can lit that burne r with the other buttons.
Look at the movie, may be you can fix it yourself.

Kind regards, Dik

The electronic ignitor on front right burner no longer works.

All ignitors should fire regardless of which burner is turned on. See if the right front will light up if you turn on another burner or look for a spark. If not, the ignitor is probably fouled and needs a good cleaning. If the right front burner will spark or ignite when a different burner is turned on, it is the right front control switch - not an easy fix. When cleaning the cook top, if you remove the knobs, any liquid that gets into the switches will short them out. Found that out the hard way.

When one burner knob is turned to the light position, all burners will spark. Once the burner lights, just move the knob slightly so it is no longer in the light position and all sparking will stop.

When I turn on a burner, all the other burners click like they are trying to turn on as well. The clicking is continuous and really annoying! Thanks for your help! Tammie

Anytime you turn on a gas range all burners click for safety reasons. If a knob has been turned by mistake the gas lights to prevent gas from escaping into the room. If you turn the control knob past the LITE position after the burner lights you should be OK and stop the clicking. If the clicking continues regardless you have a defective ignitor switch that must be replaced.

Dual element burner on glasstop range...inner element stays on

It is the burner control (behind the knob). The triac in the control has failed. $50 item, 10 minute change. Just make note which wire goes to which terminal.

I doubt that it is the control board, as the board has little to do with the stove top, but rather controls the display and the oven temperature/feedback monitoring.

Hope this helps.

Burner on range will not turn off

Look at the back of your range there should be schemetic for your power control board. look for defective burner wire going into relay. There should be 5 relays in rows. Realy is the problem. I had the same problem with my front left burner stuck on high.
After replacing everything works okay.
