Question about Cooktops

Gas burner not getting enough gas

We just installed a used Amana gas cooktop. There is plenty of gas coming thru the gas line from the source to the stove top. One burner will light when you use a match but you cannot light more than one at a time, and the flame is really low. What should we check next?

It sounds like a bad pressure regulator. Or it may be adjusted for LP gas. I need more information. Sometimes you can adjust it yourself, sometimes you need to buy a kit or new regulator.

I have an amana AKS30E gas cooktop and the ignitors are sparking approximately every 30-seconds on their own. I have checked all the knobs etc and each burner lights fine but with the gas off and ignitors...


I think it's more likely to be a wiring problem, either bad ground or loose connection on the controls of the spark module connector. Look carefully at the switches on the controls to see if they are asking for spark when they're supposed to be off.

Amana gas cooktop clicks when not in use


Take a look at the solutions that have been posted regarding igniters. i suspect a dirty or wet push-down knob. you will see that others have had water/moisture causing problems. drying mights solve it, but it may need a a bit of a clean. keep trying. it must have taken me a couple of hours to solve.

Burner won't light


is gas comeing out of the hole? sometimes by cleaning the orfice hole (food and debrie will get in there and plug the hole not letting the gas come through) i get a needle and poke it.

when you say it is sparking...When you turn the dial for that specific one you want ignited... That one is sparking? If so Great. This means you either have a plug or the valve is bad and not letting the gas flow through.

Kenmore Elite 30" gas cooktop installed. Large right front burner


There are a series of holes in the burner leading down from the main flame area to the pilot tube, ensure the holes are not plugged/restricted.

Ge Monogram Gas Cooktop - won't boil water - burners seem like they are starved for gas


Bret, lets give this a try. 1st look at the regulator. There is an arrow on it that has to point towards the cooktop. Put is on backwards and very little gas flow. I always advise this first as I have seen people tell me it is correct and when I got out there it was reversed. 2nd was this used as a live demo unit on Propane? If you are on natural gas, this will also happen. The 3rd thing I also check for in something in the gas line on the cooktop side. I had a unit that got some packing in the line and at 5 wc for natural gas, it doesn't take much to restrict. Hope this helps.

Clearence to hood fan


I just had a similar cooktop installed with a micro over it. From the bottom of the upper cabinet to the top of the burner frames you need 33 1/2 inches and from the bottom of the micro to the burner frames you need a minimum of 16 1/2 inches.

The problem is the pot(s) is too far from the heat. Jenn-air needs to make a burner cover that is closer to the burner for boiling water...

High performance burner slow to light


Replace that ignitor on that burner only. Not drawing enough amps to spark properly.
