How long should it take for burner to ignite after turning on oven?


Usually when a oven takes longer then 10 seconds I choose to break out the multimeter and perform an ampere test on the ignitor. An ignitor should draw between as a minimum 3-3.3 amps any less would mean your ignitor was weak and you would replace it. Yes this also means 2.9 that I would replace them as well due to it takes longer each ampere lower for the gas to ignite. If you have any further questions message me back. Thank you
Rick
p.s there are two main types of oven ignitors the glow bar type even if it looks like its working you should always test them. Also there is the spark type ignitor as well which usually tend to draw a bit higher then the other kind.

The stove top seems to be clicking, but the burner won't light


A common problem with that type of ignitor is that the porcelain insulator (much like a spark plug has) can crack easily. When it does, there will be a clicking sound, but the spark no longer arcs from the top of the ignitor post to the burner and cannot light the gas. Without an intact insulator, the ignitor is effectively shorting out and needs to be replaced.

I have a grill that no longer starts by itself. I have to use a lighter every time. what can I do to solve the problem


There are grill replacement parts out there. You will probably need an ignitor and the burners or maybe just the ignitor if your burners in the bottom of your grill are not too rusty. The ignitor switch probably wore out.

One of the oven ignitors does not work


Most likely replacing the ignitor will fix it. I usually replace Viking ignitors with Maytag ones, part number 12400035 (you'll need splice wires and use included wire nuts to connect those, though). Those have a little shorter base, which does not affect anything. Replace both bake ignitors if you can, otherwise, one of the burners will ignite slower and shut off faster, resulting in uneven bake.

Kitchenaid gas oven very slow to start - can be 5 - 10 minutes before I hear it kick on. For a while I could get it to start by turning on a gas burner, but that is 100% effective. Any suggestions? Also...


Replace your ignitor, this is a very common problem. As the ignitor gets older, it gets weaker. When it gets weaker, it usually starts out by not giving good temps in the oven, then it starts to take longer and longer before it lights the oven burner, then it stops lighting the burner completely. A good ignitor heats up fast, allows the current to flow through to the gas valve, opens the gas valve and lights the oven burner within 30 to 50 seconds. When you order your ignitor ask if their is a cheaper generic ignitor for this model. Their can be a huge price difference in some units. You can also have a bad sensor, control board, gas valve, or wiring problem, however for the last 15 or so years every job I have done with your problem has been an ignitor. Good Luck, Appliance Specialists

The electronic ignitor on front right burner no longer works.


All ignitors should fire regardless of which burner is turned on. See if the right front will light up if you turn on another burner or look for a spark. If not, the ignitor is probably fouled and needs a good cleaning. If the right front burner will spark or ignite when a different burner is turned on, it is the right front control switch - not an easy fix. When cleaning the cook top, if you remove the knobs, any liquid that gets into the switches will short them out. Found that out the hard way.
