SOURCE: gas stove top burners

Make sure nothing is blocking burner tubes and burner tops. All holes need to be free and clear. If that dont work replace your inlet valve were your gas lin goes in.

On the shaft of the burner control they mount a small $5 switch. It is fairly simple to replace.

SOURCE: stove burners won't ignoite

just to be clear I am assuming that you can in fact see a spark traveling from the ignitor to the metal surface over where the gas should be expelled... that being the case you must remove the the gas burner from the stove and check for damage or sign of deterioration ie: cracks, rust holes, missing sections etc. more than likely if there is no damage after 7 years of use the problem will be in the form of carbon and rust deposits inside the burner pieces or associated piping (pipe that are in the burning side of the system don't tear into the gas side) *NOTE THIS WILL NOT KEEP GAS FROM COMING OUT BUT MAY PREVENT IT FROM EXITING IN THE PROPER PLACES DESIGNED FOR LIGHTING* you can clean these carbon deposits by tipping the open end face down and tapping the burner pieces with a block of wood or similar device. These deposits should fall out as a heavy black or reddish brown dust you can also try vacuuming it and running an appropriately size drill bit through each of the burner holes to clean them as well or you can probably just purchase a new one by ordering it from the place you bought the stove

Why does our new frigidaire gas stove bggf3042kf make a high pitch whistle when the oven is heating?


Could be some blocked vents on the burner. Remove the burner and make sure all the gas vents are clean and clear.

Gas stove blows off the knobs


When you went to use the stove again it sounds like a burner did not light. The gas built up and then came into contact with a flame and ignited. Gas, propane or natural, does not float around and dissipate, it settles and builds up, which is what it sounds like happened, and then ignites with a flame or spark. When you suspect that gas has been on, it is best to wait and turn a fan or something on to dissipate the gas before trying to light a burner...

Where is the problem -- in the oven burner or a stovetop burner?
If something got spilled on a burner ring and clogged the small holes, especially near the igniter, the burner will be slow to light. A stiff wire (small enough to fit) can be used to clean out the holes.

No Clicking Sound


Sounds like the ignitor control module is bad, if none of the ignitors are working. If it is only one burner with a problem, it is likely an ignitor.

I have a kenmore gas range with electric ignitors. My question is that my stove top doesnt ignite but lets gas by and I can use a lighter to lite them. However my oven doesn't do anything...no gas no...


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.

For the GE XL44 model, where would i find the pilot light? the stove is not working


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.
