    We have a whirlpool electric range. When you try to bake, broil, or use the burners they just dont heat up. Also when you press bake the degress sign next to the temp flashes.

What make and model is the stove? Is it getting gas? Can you light it with a match? Consider putting your face right over the burner and open the pilot to high. Let it run for 10 seconds and then light the pilot.

You have one of three problems. first check to se if it's sparking when turning on, if not try cleaning sparker with a small wire brush, second try turning on another burner and see if it sparks then, if it does the switch is bad (under the knob), third is to replace spark module. ( on the back of unit small blu, white, box with four wires going up to cooktop)

I have a kenmore stove model number 790,72403012 and 3 of the 4 burners are working. They all are getting a spark, but the front left won't fire up.


First, try to light the burner in question with a match. Just hold a match to the burner, then turn the gas on to low. If the burner doesn`t light, the problem is the gas supply to the burner. Next, lift the top cover and put the prop rod in the hole in the cover to support it. Hold a match to the left-front burner. Now, turn the control knob to "light". You should see the igniter spark and hear a snap. If this doesn`t happen, repeat this step with the left rear burner. If you hear the spark and snap.
If the igniter doesn`t work on the front left burner, but does on the rear left burner, the igniter does work. The problem is likely the control knob for the left front burner. The. Control knob includes the electrical switch the activates the igniter when you turn on that burner.

If the front left also does not light normally, my best guess would be that the wires for the front left and right rear are crossed and the insulation may have fried. Besides that possibility, I have no clue.

Burner Igniter will not Spark


No, actually each knob has its own switch and any knob will energize the spark module which sparks at all burners. So, just replace the defective switch which slides over the shaft of the gas valve. Careful! unplug the unit, these are 120 volt switches. Good luck.
