Hi there,

Well If you done cleaning then may be the switch is defective, you need to replace them -

1. First of all you can Disconnect Defective Switch -Disconnect the defective switch from the power source. This is usually a plug or 2 spade type connectors. It is also possible to find ring type connectors which will have to be unscrewed. If necessary, remove the gas feed line to the valve and the gas line to the burner. Most stoves will allow you to remove the switch without removing the valve also. However, some older stoves may require the removal of both. Remove the switch from the valve and knob assembly. This is usually accomplished by removing either a lock nut on the knob/switch spindle or 2 small screws securing the switch to the valve. Discard the old switch assembly.

2. Secondly you need to Install New Switch - Mount the new switch to the knob assembly and re-secure using the hardware supplied. If no hardware came with the switch, reuse the old hardware. Reconnect supply and feed lines for gas if disconnecting was required. Reconnect power to the switch. Remove all tools from under stove top. Reconnect power. Turn knob to ignite to ensure proper operation of switch and igniter. Once proper operation is ensured, turn the gas supply back on.Close stove lid and push stove back into the wall.
Good Luck!!

Thanks

Hello,
Most likely this burner was the busiest among all the burners. One reason could be due to some residue, dirt and other material especially oil - based materials were stuck in the burners holes. Best solution is to unplug the unit and shut off the gas line completely for safety. You can use compressed air or vacuum to blow off the material that has resided in the burner. After that you can use a small amount of lacquer thinner to clean the valves and switches of the burner to get rid of the oil - based materials. Blow it off with compressed air or suction by vacuum. No need for part replacement. Hope this helps.. =)

Propane oven won't light


Can you post more details like: Does the oven ignitor come on (glow orange)? Can you hear the oven gas valve click open and/or smell gas? Do all the stovetop burners work fine? Have you checked your propane tank to be sure you are not out of gas?

Viking pro 6 burner cooktop igniter won't stop clicking after lighting on two of the burners


Do not attempt if your stovetop is hot, you will get burned!!

This is an easy fix, the problem is your burners aren't lined up properly. Remove the iron grates (what your pots rest on) and the burner cap (the round black top on the burner) and finally the burner base (the round golden colored piece resting on the stainless stovetop). If you flip the base over you will see that it is keyed, meaning there is a grove that fits the indentation on the stove top. When you replace the base make sure to line the grove up with the indentation. If it's not flush with the stove top, slowly twist the round burner base until it falls into place. That's it!

Dead burner on kitchenaid gas cooktop?


it is strange that you have no gas and no spark! if you held a match to the burner and turned the burner valve on it would lite di spite a failed ignitor,but for it not to lite, the burner valve[its what the knob attaches too] would have to be blocked[thats rare]or ........i got it .....the knob is broken.thats the only thing the burner valve and the spark ignitor have in common.try a knob from another burner................again.you have spark,because others are working.spark on troubled burner would work if valve blocked at orifice outlet,and if spark failed you would still get gas they work independent of each other,[but in unison].thats why im thinking knob.its the item that works both .when you turn the knob it opens the gas valve and as the gas valve rotates by turning the knob it activates or turns the spark switch so it closes the curcit allowing the electricty to the spark moduel.hey i hope that helps a little. God bless ,tom
