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.

on most, your push down and turn to hi to open gas valve and turn on piezio to light burner. it sounds like you have a knob already turned on . the control under the knob may need replacing. kinda an easy replacement if you get new part. check out repairclinic.com for video(maybe) but for parts for sure. be careful. gas is explosive.
You didn't say whether you have a gas or electric oven, or oven & stove. I'll assume you have a stove, just to cover all bases.
First, you should shut down the oven: a gas stove will have a valve on the gas line behind the stove. The valve will either have a red handle or a flat stem that usually has a hole in it. Turn either valve 1/4 turn to shut off gas, use a wrench on the flat stem. An electric stove should be shut off by flipping off the double circuit breaker for it in your electric panel. Do not unplug an electric stove when it is on; this can damage the plug &/or electrocute you.
Most likely the inside of the knob has stripped out. Look at the knob for a hole that has a setscrew in it: a small allen wrench or screwdriver will loosen the setscrew, most knobs don't have them and will pull off. Be careful to use even pressure on two sides of the knob; if you can't pull it off, use two butter knives or flat screw drivers to pry it up enough to get a grip on it.
Look at the center stem on the back of the knob, it will likely be cracked or stripped. Some stems have a D-shaped metal insert that strips out inside the plastic stem. If you have one, pull off a burner knob and compare the stems in the back, if they are the same size, put the burner knob on the shaft for the oven control, and use that knob to turn the oven control off.
If the burner knob won't fit, use your fingers or a pair of pliers (gently) to turn off the oven control shaft. If the shaft stops normally, you can turn the stove back on using either the gas valve or the circuit breaker. If you have a gas stove that doesn't have electric ignition (a clicking noise when you turn on a burner) you may need to re-light the pilots for the burners. Lift the covers off the burners to re-light the pilots.
If you have succeeded in turning off the oven, you need a new knob -- you can get one at an appliance parts store or maybe a hardware store. If the oven control did not turn off normally, I would leave the oven/stove turned off: the control itself will need to be replaced by a qualified repair person.
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
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
