Has the tenant confirmed if all the ignitors are working or just the stove burners? What about the oven burner?

Please provide model no. of the kenmore range so that I can provide some better solution.

    The range uses a spark module to drive the ignition on the cook top burners and an ignitor for the oven burner.



    So if both were not operating earlier then I cannot say these parts are faulty. Goes to the electrical circuit. I can suspect a loose wiring inside the range which has suddenly fixed itself due to movement of the range.



    Even though I am not sure if you can light the oven with match as the burner is part of the ignitor and works on the basis that the ignitor has to glow before gas can flow through.



    In case you do not have a manual for it here it is (i think).



    At best if the oven ignitor is not working still, you may try and replace it. (you will need crimping tool to connect it)

I have a HD2515U Stainless Steel Dual Fuel stove (hooked up to propane, not natural gas). Oven still works, but burners wont ignite. It has electric ignitors. I've followed all the steps to make sure...


The wiring harness for the burners sound like is shot! I would think about buying a new one! have You tried to light the burners with a lighter or match to see if they will ignite? If so,replace the wiring harness, over time they go bad and short out! If You Can use lighter to ignite burner I would use the long nosed ones like You start charcoal with till The new wiring harness arrives! You will save the hair on Your arm that way! LOL! Good Luck!

Manual


When the range top burners and the oven are both not lighting, I recommend you check if the manual shut-off valve to the range has been turned off. With most of my gas ranges, you have to remove the drawer to reach the shut-off valve. (so If you have propane, make sure that your tank isn't low.

Make sure that your home is well ventilated; open the windows and check the range in a while. I live in an area where we had to add a whole house ventilator. We had days where the house would seem stuffy and none of the burners would light. (Appliances with pilot lights went out.) This was due to excess carbon dioxide shifting from nearby coal and natural gas deposits.

It is possible for the igniters to fail if there is power to the range, but usually not the oven, the broiler and all of the top burners at once. You can test the top burners carefully with a long handled butane lighter or a long match. Turn on the hood fan and set a burner to the Lite position. Carefully, light the lighter near the burner or bring the lit match to the burner. If the gas is flowing properly and there is sufficient oxygen, it should light. Then remove the lighter or match and put it out. Then adjust the burner temperature.
The manual for the ARGS7650SS is available from Amana. The direct link is here: http://shared.whirlpoolcorp.com/assets/pdfs/literature/31810401.PDF . Many newer Amana product manuals are available here: http://shop.amana.com/product_literature/search.jsp .

I hope this helps.

(note: you should also make sure that the regulator cap is correctly set for your type of gas (LP or NG). The gas flow rates are different enough to make the regulator fail. Most ranges are shipped for with the cap set for NG. Turn off the gas and unplug the electrical cord before working on the regulator cap. The burner orifices need to be changed as well as some other adjustments to convert from NG to LP. See pages 9-11 of the manual for details.)

If my electricity goes out is there anther way to light my gas stve that has and electronic ignighter


If you have a gas range that allows the gas to flow freely on the surface burners, you can light them by using a match or lighter. Hold the match or lighter adjacent to the burner you intend to light and slowly turn the gas on. The burner should light.

However, the oven still will NOT work due to that fact that modern ovens are electronically controlled by the control panel on the range. So...you will still be able to cook, using the surface burners, but the oven will not function. If you have any questions, please post back and let me know. I hope this helps you.

No clicking noise when turning the nob..


Most modern gas ranges do have an electric pilot light. This one however does not. Normally you should always get the ignition (clicking noise) whenever you turn the temperature control knob. Provided that the stove is plugged into an electrical source. If you are not, then your ignitor could be out. Replacing it is fairly easy with a difficulty scale of 5/10.

But on to your problem. If you lift the lid on the stove top you will see two holes about halfway between the front and rear burners. Just connect the stove to a gas source and put a match or lighter to this hole. Don't worry, it won't blow up or flare up on you. You will need to do the same thing to the oven. If you open the broiler part of the stove, use a flashlight and look inside. You will see a similar type of gas line. Do the same with a match or lighter.

As with all gas appliances, ALWAYS check your gas lines for leaks using soapy water. If you see bubbles after spraying the solution on, then you have a leak and shouldn't turn the gas on until it's foxed. Use yellow Teflon tape or "pipe dope" on all gas connections.

Viking range burners won't light


All of these ranges have a spark module at each burner sight and they all click when ever you attempt to light one burner. Therefore, it can not be assummed that the spark module for those nonworking burners are actually clicking. Remove the burner covers and actually look for the sparks. If there is no spark make sure the connections are nice and tight. IF they are, you most likely need to replace the spark module.

Gas oven won't light (by 2 users)
Posted by MBeird on Jan 18, 2008
Can hear the clicking of the auto starter when starting the oven, but it stops after 5 seconds and then the oven simply fills with gas. Broiler still works fine as do the stove top burners. Any thoughts?

Good question? You may have a plugged up burner and or the pipes or jets may not be adjusted correctly and it could be your igniter on the gas range because it is not igniting the spark to create the flame. You may want to have it check out with an authorized service repair tech to make sure it is safe and will function well. So if you need further assistance, please feel free to contact your local appliance dealer in your area or in the yellow pages, or contact the factory phone number or website to further assist you with your questions.
