When I turn a knob on the burners, I can smell gas but I hear no clicking noise and it will not light. The oven will not light either and the display is black. I have tried changing the outlet but made no difference and I have checked the breaker, again with no solution.

Hello, when you turn on one of the burner, can you hear some clicking while you
turn on one of the burners? This is an electric ignitor, and when you turn one
burner on all the burner ignitor will click.
It is possible, that you are turning your burners on the stove to quick. Take
a look at one of knobs and you will see ignition--low---medium---high. To get
the burning ignited the knob needs to be position at the ignition site. You'll
hear it click-click-click and the burner will ignite.
Now, the oven. The oven ignitor is on a time delay. You will push the bake
button and across the screen will say something like this "Please set oven
temperature" You'll set the oven temperature to---let say 350 degrees---. Then
the screen will say "push start button" then you push the start button to turn
your oven on. Now, the screen will say "pre" this means that the oven is
pre-heating the oven to your desired temperature. Before all this happens there
is ignitor in the oven and it has a heater on the ignitor in oven. This heater
will heat up to desired temperature and once it reaches the that temperature the
ignitor will ignite and the gas will turn on.
Why--one would say for this procedure. The old kitchen stoves had a very bad
habit of of flash over---that is gas will built up in the over and once the
pilot light ignited the gas---wussh and it blow the oven door open. These ovens
would sometimes huff too.
Therefore, take your time and your biscuit will be OK
I am sorry Sandan2. I didn't finish reading your question. Never mind on what
I said here.
If the burners will not shut off sometimes, then there could a gas regulator
One very important question. Is your kitchen stove using Natural Gas or
LPG--liquid Petroleum Gas?
If it is using either type of fuel as mention above. It is very important
that you contact Appliance repair person that is certified by the state that you
live in that he/she is license by the state to work with gas appliances.
I wish you luck, but it very it important that you contact a certified
Technician... Also, move the stove away from the wall and look behind it. There
a black gas pipe and at the end is a brass valve, Take wrench and turn the gas
valve off. The gas valve will have a stainless steel flex line attached to it,
and the other end is to your stove. Don't use your stove.
If those gas burners and the oven are leaking gas. There is possibility
to blow you and your family with your home up. Don't use the stove, Until you
have it check out...please. GB you/your family...stewbison
older ovens have pilots but the newer machines are electronic ignition,there are ignitors in the oven and electrodes or ignitors on the top burners,when you turn the knob for the burner you should hear a clicking sound and see a spark around the burner,that's what lites the burner,the gas comes in and the spark ignites it,i don't know much about your machine but it can't be any different from other stoves.if none are sparking there should be a spark module in there or they could have separate modules,if you send the full model number i can look it up for you
There is not pilot light on the stove top since the burner is activated by a spark generate by high voltage to a small ceramic disk with a wire protruding from it by the burner.
You have the have AC Power to the stove and you should hear a clicking when you slightly turn on the burner. Once the burner is on fire then turn the burner control to the desired temperature. If the burner will not light after 4 seconds of clicking sounds turn the burner control off and make sure the round gas diffuser on top of the burner is correctly seated on the burner. It should lock in place and is removable for daily cleaning of the stove. Now try the burner control again in the light position for no more than four seconds to see if it lights.
Do you smell gas? Do you hear clicking when slightly turning the burner knob? If yes to both the stove is working and the top of the burner is not seated correctly. If no on either or both you may have a stove, electrical or gas problem.
there switches behind each knob, 1 of them is broken,or wet, when you remove the knobs then remove the knob panel you can test them and find the bad one,they are no more then $15.00 each. to test you can plug the stove and disconect the switches one at a time until you find the bad one replace and you are back in bussines.
do you hear any clicking when you try to start the oven portion of the range? if not lets try this, open the lower drawer so you can see the burner bar and mechanism for lighting the bake bar. as your watching the mechanism turn on the oven (nothing should happen as per your issue) while oven is on try lighting one of the top burners, any one will do wanna check if that lites the spark and in turn lites the oven pilot.if that does infact work you have a bad spark switch for the oven control
under each (the) oven behind a panel, is a red button it may be a different color from time. this has to be pushed and held while the pilot light under the oven floor is lit with a match. it has to be held to allow enough heat to activate the thermocouple, which will keep the pilot on. if this does not work there may be an additional problem
