The four burners on my range top have burned out (all at once.) Is this fixable, or should I just buy a new range?

My Jenn-Air range top will spark but no ignition. Gas does not seem to have enough pressure on that burner


Generally the issue with this is not that you don't have the correct pressure but the Burner top hat that displaces the gas is dirty.
Remove the metal rack to expose the burner itself. Make sure it's not been used recently to prevent a burn. Carefully lift the little burner cap off. This is the piece with all the holes in it the flames come from. They generally just sit on top. You will need a flashlight, know look in the little slits below the cap for cleaning material buildup. A tooth pick or a stiff bristle tooth brush can be used to clean these little slits.
The cleaning products used to clean stove tops tends to leave little trace amounts of surfactants that over time block these little slits and prevent the escaping gas to flow towards the ignitor preventing the burner from lighting.
Once you have this clean replace the top. Put the pan grate back on and try to relight the stove.
I am sure this should fix you issue. If it doesn't please let me know and I can give you some other tips to try.

One of the burners does not light but it does have a spark at ignitor but it is not directed to burner port


Be certain the openings in the burner are free of debris. Boilovers can leave debris in the openings that will harden. Once this happens you cannot get the right mix of oxygen and gas for a flame to ignite. With the burner OFF, you can clean the openings gently with a toothpick to loosen the cooked on "gook." Then when you turn on the burner, the flame should burn off the residue and your range will be "cooking on all four burners!"

Issues with frigidaire gas range


Return it. You purchased a "usable" gas range. whether it was on clearance or not is immaterial unless you purchased the unit as a non-working unit. If the personnel in the appliance dept. are not willing to exchange the unit, ask to speak to the manager (store Manager, not appliance dept manager). Explain to the manager that you spent your money for a usable range and the range you received is not usable. If the manager is unwilling to exchange the unit, ask him for his full name and the number to the corporate office of Lowe's. Remember, the unit was already exchanged once, so the story they will try to give you is that they only authorize repairs for non-working units is a lie or you would not have been able to purchase the unit you have. If you cannot get a new unit, do call the corporate office with the name of the store manager, explain you were sold a piece of junk that the store knew had problems and that they informed you were corrected. The problems were not corrected and you would have never purchased the range knowing the problems still existed. stand firm, you will get a new range to replace the one you have

Corning smoothtop electric range


You MUST use flat bottom pans on three of the four burners, the back right burner is the multi-pan burner and accepts any type pan. You'll notice the other burners have a circle in the center, that is the thermostat that reads the temp of the pan, that burner type needs the flat bottom pan to work correctly. The multi-pan has no thermostat and it will boil water in any pan.

Good luck

Dacor gas range igniter clicking


I did have the same problem after the house keeping people done with cleaning. They used window/surface cleaner. First I asked them not to clean the ignitor with any cleaner. Here is what I did to solve the problem
I took scotch scour pad (one that you use for washing dishes), In dry state I polished ignitor switch. It is abrading the residuals and deposits on the top and polishing it. Don't use any thing more abrasive than that. MAGIC - I don't have any more problem.
