Gas stovetop not igniting without matches

Hi, I read a few of your replies to people's problems. I have a problem with my gas stovetop not igniting when the knob is in the "ignite" position. It just clicks, and it sounds like the click is coming from a different burner sometimes. What would you say is the best way to solve this problem? spark module or ignitor replacement?

If the rest of the surface igniters are working, more than likely your spark module is working fine. (This is normal, by the way) I would suspect that you have a bad spark electrode at the burner in question, a bad burner switch, or bad wiring.

I found several part listings for the model number you posted this question under at repairclinic.com. You will need to provide a more complete model number in order to narrow your search to ensure you get the right part. You can find your model number on a nameplate around the oven door opening, or lower drawer opening (if equipped). Some manufacturers also place this information on the back of the range.

I hope this helps answer some of your questions. Please reply back to this posting if you need further troubleshooting guidance.

The igniter in the oven does not spark. It heats up and glows red hot until enough current opens the safety gas valve to the burner. It is not associated with the stovetop burners. Replace the oven igniter itself.

Igniter clicks, but gas will not flow.


if you don't smell gas (rotten eggs/sulphur), the gas is off or clogged. there are little pin-hole spouts for the gas to come out before it gets to the burner, and they get clogged easily by falling food/liquid. you have to take the stovetop off to get to them.

Stovetop works but oven does not.


Most likely your problem is the glowplug aka oven igniter. Even though it comes on it must reach a certain temp for the gas to come on. Occaisionally the valve will be bad but 90% of the time it is the igniter. Part number is 74007498

One stovetop burner does not initiate igniter sparking.


Its most likely the igniter. It might just be dirty, but its easy to install a new one. They are attached by two screws and a single plug. I'd suggest turning the power off to the stove before plugging in a new one.

I have the same problem intermittently on my Super Cap 465. After reading the following quote from another site, "There have been cases where radio waves, electronic signals and sometimes something as strange as dimmers in lights have caused some weird problems with some computer panels in stoves like these", I tried turning off lights that might be on the same circuit and wouldn't you know it, the oven igniter circuit worked.
