    Think this may be related to having cleaned stovetop recently, got too moist? now none of the ignitors click when turned to light. Will light with match. All gas stoves I have had lift up on top to access. This one appears sealed, not sure if its because of how the stove fits into the counter. It doesn't look easy to slide out because of how they built and tiled counter. Don't want to get too involved with troubleshooting when I can't even figure out where to start?

Sorry, misinformation, no such child lock existed in those days, either your spark module is bad or your switches are bad, (unusual for all switches to fail simultaneously)

You have to light burners on stovetop with a match all the time.


The pilots for the range top are beneath the top of the range top. YOu will see them if they are there. YOu stove may use electronic ignition and you can hear the sparking when you turn the knob to the "light" position.

If it is electronic ignition, make sure the stove is plugged into an operating outlet

Gas burners/electronic ignition


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.

Oven won't light


Well, the igniter needs to be replaced. They go bad after a lot of use, if you replace it and it's still not sparking, let me know but 99% of the time replacing the igniter will fix the problem.

If you have any further questions, just ask, I would be glad to help

Tappan gas stove


I had the same problem, and finally took the rings and the covers off of the burners. I used an old toothbrush to clean everything really good, and then used a vacuum ( or you can just close your eyes and blow really hard ) around the burners. If there is a build up of junk or if a pot has ever boiled over, sometimes junk can get lodged in the little igniter and this prevents it from lighting.
