    Thanks, for your response. I will follow the steps you suggest. however, the burner works every time; it never doesn't ignite. the problem is that only half of the ring ignites; in order for the rest of the ring to ignite, i need to touch a flame to the burner orfices. Will your suggestion cover this issue?

    Also, i have a gas range, as mentioned in the problem, this sounds like a solution for an electric range, doesn't it?

Hello,

If one of your burner heating elements works only intermittently, it's probably because of worn or bad contacts in the receptacle that the element plugs into, you can remove the element by lifting it up several inches and firmly pulling it away from its attachment (receptacle). Read your owner's manual to learn the correct technique for your range. If, after removing the element, you see that the ends of the element that were plugged in are pitted, corroded, burned, scarred, or rusted, replace both the element and the receptacle.
Take care.

    Hello,

    As i said earlier, you will need to clean your burner assembly and igniter, Lift the burner assembly off the support arm as you slide it away from
    the burner valve port. It just rests there. Remove the shipping screws
    if they're still in place. clean all the necessary parts because they may be clog with dirt not allowing the pilot to ignite.

The left front burner of my GE pROFILE 30'' GAS RANGE DOES NOT LIGHT ,ON ONE OCCASION A FLAME SHOT OUT FROM UNDER THE BOURNER. OTHER WISE IT JUST CLICKS AND DOES NOT LIGHT


Does it light with a match?
If it does not you need to have a profesional check you burner injet. It may be clogged up. Try cleaning your burner base and burner parts. Sometimes they get full of food gunk.

If it lights with a match then you can try changing the igniter switch that is on top of the gas valve.
Good luck

Center burner doesn't ignite all the way around


I had this same problem. You will need to lift off the burner and remove the two 9/32" nuts and lock washers from the bottom of the center burner. Then separate the top section from the bottom. You will need to clean the inside of both sections down using a green scotchbrite pad removing and debris or small surface film the may have built up. Then rinse with warm water and dry them well. Reassemble it and your burner should work as good as new. Remember even just a small grease film on the burner holes will create this issue.

Ge spectra gas stove top not lighting


If your top burners are not lighting or will not work, it is possible that the burners have become dirty or wet. Please follow the troubleshooting directions below before calling service:
  1. Turn you burner to the Lite position:

    If you hear clicking or sparking, go to Step 2.

    If you do not, check your circuit breakers. If the circuit breaker is ok, we recommend that you schedule service by calling 1-800-432-2737 or schedule service online.

  2. Clean the burner and electrode:

    First remove the burner grate, cap, and head. Use a needle or paper clip to poke through the holes on the burner head. Re-assemble and try the burner.

    Remove the burner grate, cap, and head. Even if it looks clean, wipe the tip of the electrode with a clean, dry paper towel and PRESS IT DOWN. Re-assemble and try the burner, again.

    Check to see if the burner works, If not, then go to Step 3.

  3. Re-assemble - Make sure that each burner top matches its burner bottom. The burner top will lay flat if put on correctly.

    Check to see if the burner works, If not, then go to Step 4.

  4. The spark igniter is operating properly, but the burner is still not lighting. At this point, we would recommend that you schedule service by calling 1-800-432-2737 or schedule service online.

Resettle the small center tops on the burners. If even one is slightly off center or not level, a burner will not light, although it will click. Cost me a service call to learn this!
