Easiest fix is to insert a small folded piece of paper into the hole of each knob untill you build the knob up enough for pushing down to turn the switch and it is free

Range: Gas burner won't spark or ignite A surface burner igniter switch and a spark module activate the spark electrode when a burner is turned to the "Lite" position on a gas range's cooktop. If the surface burner switch, spark module or wiring in that circuit fails, the spark electrode won't work, and as a result the gas burner won't light. If those components work but the electrode won't spark, the problem could be that the spark electrode is coated with spilled food of is bent or broken. In addition, the electrode won't spark or ignite the burner properly if the ceramic insulation sleeve below the tip of the electrode is cracked or broken. If the gas burner isn't lighting, these repairs may help.

Replace the spark igniter electrode

1396454293470.jpg The spark igniter electrode-also called the surface burner igniter-is an insulated electrode that provides an ignition spark to light a surface gas burner. It sparks and makes a ticking sound when the burner switch is turned to the Lite position. Replace the spark ignition electrode if it fails to spark or if the ceramic insulation sleeve is cracked or chipped. How to Replace a Spark Igniter Electrode in a Gas Range Find This Part

Replace the surface spark module

1377098014986.jpg The surface spark module is in the ignition circuit for the gas surface burners. When a surface burner control knob is turned to the "Lite" position, it provides voltage to the spark electrodes on the gas surface burners. If the surface spark module fails to provide the electrodes with voltage, then it should be replaced. Find This Part

Replace the spark igniter switch

1396454315355.jpg The igniter switch is an electrical switch on the stem of the gas surface burner control valve. This switch completes a circuit to the surface burner spark module, causing the burner igniters to spark when the burner switch is turned to the Lite position. Replace the burner igniter switch if the burners don't spark when you turn the burner control knob to the Lite position or if igniters spark constantly even when the burner knobs are in the Off position.

Lift top to access knob lights


Hello Mary Beth, I am happy to assist you!


I understand you are seeking information on how to life the top of your Frigidaire range for the above-listed model number, FGF316. Here are some simple steps you need to take:


  • Grasp the side of your cooktop and then lift from the front.

  • The top high would need to be lifted high enough to allow the support rods to snap into place. The Lift-up rods will support the top in its raised position.

  • While the cooktop is lifted up, you can use soapy water and a clean cloth, and then dry to clear underneath.

  • Lower the top gently by pushing back on each rod (when lowering the top, grasp the sides with fingertips only. Be careful not to pinch fingers). This will release the notched support. Hold the range top and slide he range top down into the range frame.



I hope this information helps to some degree. If there is anything else that I can help you with, please feel free to reconnect!

My right front burner wont turn off. My dad checked the control knob and it seems to be working. He unplugged it from the front burner and put it on the back to see if it did the same thing and it did. ...


with a model number to know exactly how power is supplied to the surface burners its going to be hard to let ya know anything definate...but do ya have knobs that ya turn to turn on the surface burners? if yes knobs..their will be terminals on the switch marked L1/L2 on those 240vac should be there all the time when turning the knob onto high on terminals marked H1&H2 should be 240vac to the burner

if it has the touch button to turn on the surface burners 240 vac into board all the time ..4 individual outbound power places (one for each burner) and the one for that burner also should have 240 vac when set to high

in either case if 240 vac out to burner the burner is bad
if 240vac into switch/board and not out..switch/board bad

How do I change my whirlpool super capacity 465 from natural gas to propane


The documentation for Whirlpool appliances is available here: http://www.whirlpool.com/custserv/index.jsp . Enter the full model number from the oven rim inside the drawer. The installation guide will walk you through the conversion. However, it is recommended that a qualified technician (for LP, if going to LP) do the conversion. Most LP companies will have someone who can perform the conversion. The conversion kit should have come with the documentation for the range.

I've found one model of Super Capacity 465 with the model number SF325PEEQ0. The documentation is here: http://shared.whirlpoolcorp.com/product_literature/search_results.jsp?form_state=literatureSearch&context=&siteCd=WHRCOM&form_state=literatureSearch&searchTerm=SF325PEEQ0 .

The steps: Make sure the power cord is disconnected, the gas supply is turned off and the grates and burner bases are removed from the top burners. Open the broiler door and locate the regulator, remove the cap from the regulator and turn it over so that LP is visible. Reinstall the cap. Do not remove the regulator. Move the range out from the countertop (about 4") if it is in place. Slide a putty knife carefully between the cooktop and the oven compartment to locate one of the clips on the side 2 3/8" back from the front of the range. While gently lifting up on the cooktop surface, push in on the clip. Repeat on the other side. Prop up the cooktop and remove the Venturi plates. Then remove one orifice at a time from the cooktop, use a 3/8" combination wrench. Replace with the same colored orifice from the kit. Lower the cooktop and reinstall all of the burner bases and other parts. In the oven, use a 1/2" combination wrench to tighten the orifice hood down to the pin (2 to 2 1/2 turns). Do not overtighten. Finish installing the range except for sliding it into the final position and then check the burners. You may need to adjust the air shutter for each burner. With the burners off, remove the knobs. Open the oven door and remove three screws from the manifold panel. Pull the panel down and away from the range. With a small screwdriver, adjust the air shutters for each burner (clockwise to let in more air, counterclockwise to reduce the air). Replace the manifold and then the control knobs and check the burners. Start the oven heating and check the burner for it. There is another air shutter next to the regulator; adjust if needed.

I hope this helps.

Hello Experts, I NEED some advice to remove the control panel on my Kitchenaid electric range (model KESA907PSS00). I can't seem to get the darn thing off. It's loose @ bottom but will NOT release...


I have owned many mediocre appliances but the KESA907PSS00 is the worst of the lot. The burners turn on if you bump them - a contractor bumped it without knowing and left, a pot with chicken was reduced to charcoal and house filled with smoke when we returned. And burners don't turn on, have replaced three burner controls so far. The front door tempered glass exploded while we were gone one day with oven off. Now the oven will not turn off, have to flip the breaker to shut it down. Though I know it is a Whirlpool at heart, it is my last Kitchen Aid appliance. I will be looking at control panel to replace membrane switch so if you have not solved your problem yet, please advise, might figure it out. Called Kitchen Aid, waste of time. Another Retired Cop

I have a very old Tappan electric cooktop 13-3087-10 with solid burners. One burner has a round button in the middle that has become rusted "pushed in". What is the purpose of the button?


This is the temperature sensor. This one burner has a knob with different numbers on it because its heat is controled by a thermostat and not just by varying the current, as are the other burnser.

I Cooktop locks when power goes out.


Hi, unfortunately your range needs power to energize a solenoid which allows gas to flow to the cook top. It would seem that you may have inadvertently got the wrong model. This feature is only handy when there is a safety need to limit access to the burners. Theoretically,  the solenoid could be removed and the gas would then work with no power but you may be better off selling the range and buying another one. Best of luck.

Frigidaire ceramic cooktop burner turned on by itself


It is the burner control (behind the knob). The triac in the control has failed. $50 item, 10 minute change. Just make note which wire goes to which terminal.

I doubt that it is the control board, as the board has little to do with the stove top, but rather controls the display and the oven temperature/feedback monitoring.

Hope this helps.
