When you turn the knob you dont smell gas, don't here the click of the igniter, but would like to light the oven manually. Can you help me please.


you can't manually light the oven with a match anymore,you have an electronic ignition in the oven or an ignitor part number 5303935066 and it's around 60 dollars.you have to remove the racks,remove the floor of the oven and then remove the cover and you'll see the ignitor in the back screwed to the tube usually with two 5/16 inch screws. set the oven to bake on 350,if the ignitor glows but doesn't light in 40 seconds it's bad,if it doesn't light at all you can unplug the ignitor and check it with a meter for continuity but most likely you have a bad ignitor.wet a paper towel and wet the two screws,they will come out easier,you can't use wd or anything like that because it will smell when you turn the oven on so use water, if you can see where the disconnect is to unplug the ignitor unplug it or when you get the screws out cut the two wires close to the ignitor,the new ignitor comes with ceramic wire nuts so you can connect the two wires you just cut to the new ignitor,the wires on the new ignitor will be long,you can screw the new ignitor on,leave around 6 inches of wire on the new ignitor so the wire connectors will be away from the tube and not up near the floor and if you have the ignitor screwed on you can see how long to make the wires,cut the wires and strip the ends on the old and new wires and wire nut them together.then turn it on to bake,when the ignitor starts to glow it sholud lite the flame in less than 40 seconds.hope this helps you out.one more thing don't touch the piece of the ignitor that's inside the metal bracket,they break very easy.good luck and have a great holiday.

Electronic ignitors won't stop clicking


Pull the burner caps, etc off the stove and completely dry the area ..Be sure to inspect each ignitor contact for cleanliness as well. If the ignitors have soapy buildup or water, around them, they can act like this.
You should be able to pull the burner caps and flame diffusers off and clean with a paper towel, and if needed, a light scouring sponge. Be careful not to scratch the surfaces, but scour the top of the ignitors carefully if you need to clean them.

Ignitors constantly click.


Hi, it is possible, that your spark module, need replacing, but it could be other things too. could be faulty ignitor switch, whenever you turn knob to light burner, it activate switch, remove burners, lift top off, you will see, that each knob are connected to valve with two, or some model has one wire, connected to it, check for any breaks in wiring harness, could be something simple like bruise wire touching cooker body, etc. also turn knob and light any burner, turn knob clockwise all the way, let burner light, then gently turn knob counter clockwise and listen to hear if clicking stop, if clicking continue until burner goes off, it's possible you'll need to replace spark module, sometimes, they get short circuited, takes about 30 mins to replace module, $90/ hr. oouch, big companies, does that price, includes, price of module? can you get a regular repair guy, ask a friend they might know one. good luck.

Miele KM 320 G gas cooktop ignitor


I had a similar problem and discovered that the control knob had fried itself, most likely due to liquid penetration down the shaft of the control knob and into the control knob electronics. Inside is a printed circuit board with resistor, diode and a rheostat. The surface of the board was charred beyond repair.
To trouble shoot the problem, open the cook top and hook the burner in question to one of the known good control knobs. If it ignites, then it is the control knob electronics. If it doesn’t, then there is something wrong with the igniter.
Note: The 2-zone Wok Burner had a different control knob that the other burners.
To open the cook top, do NOT loosen any of the Phillips screws on the sides. Here are the instructions from the user manual:
Disassembly
Shut off gas supply, disconnect the manifold pipe, disconnect the electrical power. Remove pan supports, burner heads and burner rings. Remove control knobs.
In the event that the hob is built in, undo the bracket clamps underneath the work surface. Lift the hob on to the work surface. Unscrew the venturis on the high-speed and super high-speed burners using a 20 mm wrench. Lift and remove the burner rings and burner base plates. Disconnect the wires from the ignition plugs. Keep the wire from dropping into the undertray by inserting it in one of the slots in the burner supports.
Remove the three screws securing the dual ring wok burner. Remove the wok burner base plate. Lift the ceramic tray from the hob.
Note: Each regulator shaft is equipped with a black ring. This ring may cling to the rubber seal in the ceramic tray. Check and remove the rings from the rubber seals.

Spark ignitor won't stop clicking


Dry the ignitors and see if that works. If not, then get new ignitors.

All 4 ignitors just stopped working on the stove top...no more 'clicking' sounds


1 Check to be sure unit is properly connected to power supply. 
2 Check for a blown circuit fuse or a tripped main circuit breaker. 
3 Check to be sure ignitor is dry and clicking. Burner will not light if ignitor is damaged, soiled or wet. If ignitor doesn’t click, turn control knob OFF. 
4 Burner ports may be clogged.
