Question about Ovens

1 Answer

Hi, I need to know if the cooktop burners have piezo ignition on a westinghouse Hakea series upright gas stove # GUC 511 WLP 03. The grill will ignite + the oven has it's own piezo start, but the cooktop burners won't ignite. This will save me pulling the stove apart for no reason. Thanks very Much. Jason.

    Thanks very much..I assumed so + now I don't have to pull things apart to confirm. Just quickly, could you please also tell me what my options would be to replace the missing stick on label for the oven control?? Can I buy a replacement knob?

No the burner have no ingiter ither piezo or electric just the gill and oven as you mention.
Burners need external light however they do have thermocouple protection when the fire goes out for safety.

I have a kenmore gas range with electric ignitors. My question is that my stove top doesnt ignite but lets gas by and I can use a lighter to lite them. However my oven doesn't do anything...no gas no...


Electric gas igniters sometimes get stuck in one position causing a clicking sound. The clicking sound that you hear is the electric arc that is pulsing from the igniter conductor (wire) to ground (the gas burner). It receives power from the electrical outlet that the stove is plugged into.
Residue from food and sometimes cleaning products may be preventing the igniter from producing a spark (Arc) to the base of the burner. This is a common problem that occurs when the stove has been cleaned or food is allowed to build up. Make sure that the igniter and the burner base are clean and dry. This will help with proper operation. Oven cleaner and a small tooth brush may be used to accomplish this. Another problem with ignition may occur if you have too little (touching) or too much space between the igniter and the base of the burner; it will prevent the burner from igniting. You should only have a little more space than the thickness of a nickel between the burner base and the igniter. A good “blue” arc from the igniter to the burner base is optimal. If this doesn’t work, you may need to replace the electric igniter module. Good luck.

First two burners, now all burners...


You have a defective spark module. This is a device which breaks down the 120 incoming volts to a 12 volt spark to ignite the burners. Replace module and problem should be solved.

Problem gas cooker


Go on line to westing house.com and look up your model, go to the help page and ask for their assistance, gas is not something to fool around with, I suspect it is the orifice that have not been converted to propane, I had a similar problenm with the stove top burners, and the orifices needed to be changed to (converted ) to run on propane gas.Some times manufactures send the converter orfices but most of the time you have to ask for them if you are running on propane, most stoves are set up for natural gas not propane.Most of the time the store clerks don't ask you if you will be running on propane , you have to tell them and the professional who installs the unit needs to install the orifices. Please be careful! If you installed the stove your self, you need to contact a professional installer to correctly adjust these .

Westinghouse Freestyle 476 Cooktop Oven


After getting an electrician out, apparently the time needs to be set on the oven. As we're in a rental & don't have a manual/ couldn't download one, we got it to work after holding the first two buttons in (the timer buton + the one that looks like a hot pot) along with the + button at the far right, which made the tim tick on, so it could be set.

The oven works now! : )
