Hello,

what this indicated from this statement is that there has been a weakness on the element.

what you are to do to solve this problem i to unscrew the screws on the range then trace the wires down to the element it is silver in color carefully remove it from it position or Locate the element. It should be near where the electrical cord comes into the range. The element is a small white bar or silver in nature with metal caps on either end. Carefully remove the element. Avoid touching the transformer or other parts inside the microwave.
Purchase a new element. Most range use an 18 amp ceramic element . Consult your owner's manual to find out what kind of fuse is used, or take the old fuse into the store to find the exact match.
thank you.

Hard to light burners


I have the same question, does anyone know why the igniter takes such a long time to light the burners? At least 6 to 7 clicks. The sparks from the igniter looks blue and has a good spark. This is true with all burners. I have cleaned the stove and around the igniters, Mine is a sealed burner so I haven't opened it up.

I have a Whirlpool Gas Range with Accu-Bake. On one of my burners the igniter comes on but the burner will not light. You can hear the clicking, but no flame. Is there something that I should clean and...


Hello,
In addation to the spark do you hear th egas flowing as well? if you do hear the gas and can light it with a match/bbq lighter but it doesn't light with the spark,it could be cleaned by using a safety pin/paper clip and push through the holes where the flame burns all around the burner(s) also steel wool will clean the burner.

I have a furnace goodman, the hsi glows then i hear a click ( there is 24 v in the gas valve after the click ) but the burners never ignate.


Hello, the first thing to check is if you are getting gas flow to the burners, if you are than the ignitor is bad and must be replaced. if you are not getting gas to the burners and are getting 24 volts to the gas valve then the gas valve is bad and must be replaced.

Make sure it didn't burn the contacts of the ignition switch.
Of course you will want to check the main fuses as well. Fusible links if it has them.

Burner will not light, but pilot is on


Sounds like you need a new thermo coupler. this is first and foremost.

Can you light the burners by hand? and do they burn hot and clean that will let you know if you have clear intake lines for the gas.

There is a small chance the gas valve is having a problem,not at the burner control but the vavle the thermo coupler is connected to. or worse case scenario moisture in the gas line.

I just cleaned by hand by magic chef wall oven and now I can't


Pilotless ignition means that a hot surface ignitor lights the oven burner. It does take a little bit of time to light the burner. Maybe 30 seconds. If you want to make sure it lights take the bottom panel out from the oven and observe the hot surface glow and the burners light. No real danger as the gas valve will only open after the hot surface ignitor has satisfied the gas valve. Let me know how it goes. ken

Viking 4 burner gas range


if you are not hearing the faintest sound of clicking / sparking you could have a bad spark module or even bad burner switches i doubt that all switches went bad at the same time but its possible unplug oven check wireing to switches and spark module if you pull your burner knob off thats the switch starring at you follow wires and check for any loose connections
