First you can try to light it using a lighter keep the gas knob press and place the lighter near the burner, if it light keep it press for 30 seconds. If it lights ok then for sure you have gas out and you need to clean the spark which probably cover with oil. If this does not help then you need to remove the top cover and check the wires coming from the igniter which is brown or white plastic box with wires in and out sometimes they become loose from exceed heat.
If all wires are ok then you need a new igniter is not an expensive part.

Bluestar rangetop clicks several times before igniting


Do other appliances in your home using LP gas work properly? If so, then this is probably an air/fuel mix problem on the burner(s). If this is a new rangetop there should be directions with the range and the LP conversion kit to instruct on proper adjustments. Be certain the correct LP orifice was installed for each burner (they likely have different BTU ratings for different sized burners) and the ignitor post is clean and spaced properly to burner. Then adjust the air mix to achieve a blue flame with just a tip of yellow. Delayed ignition usually results from the wrong air/gas mixture which doesn't ignite until too much fuel has accumulated. In many locations the company you purchase LP gas from will have someone who can check and adjust this. If the range was shipped from the factory as LP gas ready, then you can also contact your dealer and request assistance.

Gas burner will not stay lit. works fine when pressing knob for igniter function but goes out when knob is released


You have what we call a flame safe device fitted to the burner, (thermocouple lead), have you checked to make sure your flame on the burner is touching the tip of the "probe" on t'couple, if it isn't make sure that the ports on the burner are clear. If this does not solve problem then the thermocouple needs replacing by a Gas Safe engineer.

Miele KM 3474 stove top lights but turns off after 30 seconds


Does the burner attempt to re-ignite after it goes out? If so, it's probably the therocouple. If not, it could be the burner valve. Be sure the caps and rings are correctly seated on the burners and be sure to firmly press the burner knob down to start the flame.

Gas burners won't light


Make sure the little tiny flash holes are open. They allow a little bit of gas to seep out so the igniter can light the burner. If you can light the burners with a match, check those holes.
If yours are the "sealed" type burners, make sure they are not a half a turn out (180° around)

Our Dacor gas cooktop igniter won't click. When I turn on the burner, you can hear the gas coming out, but no click so the burner won't lite.


Go to RepairClinic.com and check on how much a new igniter is. Is there two or 4 igniters on your model (lift the top of the range up and it is the little silver piece sticking out with a white base around it), If its 2 is the other side working? Make sure there is no food deposits around where the gas and the spark meet.

Thermador Gas Range - Griddle ignition will not spark


I have a Thermador Gas Range PG364GDBS - Oven, 4 burners, and center griddle. All are gas. The four burners and gas oven work fine. The griddle just stopped working, no spark. Turning on the griddle control, the gas valve opens(hear it), gas flows (smell it), but the ignitor will not spark (no loud or faint spark that I can hear). I got a replacement ignition device (mount at the burner) thinking it might be the problem, but still no spark. I checked the AC voltage at the terminal and measured 39 VAC between the terminal and ground. Not sure if that is the correct voltage. Any insights or advice would be great.

GE gas stove top igniters won't stop clicking


My wife just called me with the same problem - all 4 starters are clicking repeatedly - which started while the range was being cleaned.
From a Google search, this is what I found. Don't know if it will solve our issues, though wanted to share as it sounds like we may all be suffering from dirty starters (electrodes).
My surface burners keep "clicking" even after the burner is lit. There are a few things to check for.




And, to check the model number, look at the various places pointed to in the upper left of this diagram. http://www.applianceaid.com/newpics/range-model2.JPG
