If you turn oven on, the igniter doesnt work, and sometimes igniter will work once but still won't light oven - we have to now press igniter button to get it to light. Gas does come out. I have cleane


And your point...kidding...i guess your igniter switch isn't sending a signal,or thermocouple is bad.Does it shut off and on while baking etc.if it does thermocouple is ok.Igniter end by flame may need cleaned,try that,but carefully,don't want to damage it.small brass brush,won't make sparks,not a good thing when your head is in an oven,don't use a lighter to see either,flashlight is fine.Just shut the gas to stove off,that will relieve the pressure in gas line .the shut off is usually to the side or behind stove..turn handle sideways to pipe,in line with pipe is the on position..If all this doesn't work,you probably need to replace the sending unit that sends signal to igniter..Or have a repairman do it.check up other sites on computer also about problem,that way you'll have an idea whats going,so repairman dosen't rip you off.

Earth switch keeps tripping when oven turned on. Control knobs on outer casing get hot. Overheating?


I would imagine that somewhere within the oven, the electrical insulation is breaking down. The only way to isolate the problem is to disconnect the circulating fan and element one item at a time to see what is causing the problem. Unfortunately, you will have to take the whole oven out of its carcass to take the rear panels off the get to the wiring. Any decent electrician should be able to work out what is causing the problem. I would take a bet that it is the oven fan that is causing the problem, but don't take it for granted!

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.

I have a frigidaire oven, my wife touched the oven element with an oven mitt and blew out the main 100 amp house breaker. the oven does not work anymore but the burners are fine. should i buy a new element...


THE ELEMENT SOUNDS LIKE IT IS SHORTED BIG TIME TO TRIP 100 AMP BREAKER. I CAN'T SEE WHY A ELEMENT BEING TOUCHED WOULD DO THAT. CHECK THE WIREING TO THE ELEMENT AND MAKE SURE NOTHING ELSE HAS SHORTED TO ALSO CAUSE THIS PROBLEM, PLEASE TURN THE POWER OFF FIRST. BUT THE ELEMENT CAN BE REPLACED AND NOT THE WHOLE STOVE

Wolf oven - oven clicks continuously


This sounds like you have a flame switch getting ready to go out. The reason you are hearing the ticking noise is that after the ignition is satisfied the flame switch is not detecting and sending a signal to continue to try for ignition.

How to light our gas cooker



Modern gas cookers use an electronic ignition switch rather than a pilot light to light the gas for cooking. This means you can light your gas cooker with the touch of one button instead of using several matches or a flint lighter. Of course, you still have the option to light the gas cooker by hand with matches or a flint lighter if the ignition switch does not work the first time.

1.Open the gas regulator valve by pushing it in and turning it to a low setting.

2.Push the ignition switch once.

3.If the gas cooker does not light on the first try, close the gas regulation valve for one minute by pushing in on it and turning it back to the "Off" position.

4.Open the gas regulation valve, set it a bit higher than you did on the first lighting attempt, and push the ignition switch again.

5.Light the gas with a match or a flint lighter if the gas cooker does not light when you push the ignition switch again.

Burners on gas stove work but oven and broiler not working


Most ovens, unless they have an electric igniter (does it go tick tick tick when plugged in and turned on? If so, it has an electic ignition.) have a pilot light. In order to keep gas from flowing out, and to prevent a possible explosion when the pilot light has gotten put out, they have an electric thermocouple on them that shuts off the gas when it gets cold. Plug the cord back in, and relight your pilot light by holding the lighter (I recommend a fireplace match or bbq lighter, not a cigarette lighter to prevent singed knuckle hairs!) over the thermocouple for a couple of minutes.
