Hello,

Check your home's fuse box to ensure that you have not blown the fuse or tripped a circuit breaker that controls power to your kitchen. Reset or replace the fuse if needed.
Unplug the oven, and then plug it back in. Wait 30 seconds and try to turn on both the top burners and the oven's heating element.
Make sure all top burners and the oven are off. Lift up on each burner's heating element and pull it straight out. Do the same for the oven's heating element after you have removed any oven racks and heat plates. Clean off the contacts on all of the elements with a sponge and check all of the receptacles for debris that can prevent the elements from seating correctly.
Check the elements' contacts for pitting, scars, burns, corrosion, rust or bending while you dry them off with a towel. Replace any damaged heating elements and their corresponding elements on the oven.
Plug the heating elements for the top burners and the oven back into their respective receptacles. Turn each burner and the oven on to ensure that the elements are lighting.

Good luck in solving the problem.....

2 of 5 burners do not start


The spark gap needs to have flow of gas across it for ignition to occur. The gas outlet holes at the point where the igniter sparks may be blocked, clean and inspect these for any blockages. Also check that the igniter spike is in the correct place. Careful evaluation of the position of the igniter in reference to the gas ring on the other rings may help you here. Good luck

I have the star burner model, w/ extra-low simmer. The center burner will not light at all by itself. The right rear burner will self-ignite if you turn it to low, and then slowly rotate the knob clockwise...


Center burner won't light: If there is a bright spark (check all ignitor points at night with the lights out and look for consistent brightness of the sparks) then it's likely that the burner slots are dirty or the air/gas mix is wrong. If you can light with a match, but the spark won't light, then go for cleaning the entire burner assembly thoroughly with a brass bristle brush (available at most automotive stores). The proper air/gas mix has to flow over the spark to ignite. Weak spark, improper air/gas or misdirected gas flow that misses the spark can all cause this issue.

RR burner lights only on low setting. Again, check the air gas mix and clean all parts. Something like a small spider web inside the air mix chamber (area between the orifice and the burner can cause this and is difficult to see. Disassemble, clean thoroughly, reassemble and test. Extra low simmer burners (two on the left side) use their own control module with electric gas valves and variable electric control switches. The burner works on low, so these are not likely the problem.

Most folks want to find a bad part, and that can happen, but stove tops get dirty and cleaning usually helps. If not, you have a clean top to work on.

The indicator lens and/or the retainer are either broken or the retainer is missing. It's best to replace these as they are not expensive. When the top is off while cleaning is an perfect time to replace the lens.

No spark on left side burners


Hi, This could be caused by something spilled on the burner, look at the electrode where the spark comes from and clean it up and make sure the metal right above it is clean as well. You should see spark at each burner regardless of which one your turning on. Assuming everything is clean, if you don't see spark on 2 of the burners, it could be 2 broken wires or a defective spark module (not likely if right side lights). Good luck

I have a Maytag Maytag MGR6772BDW. One burner fails to light


Clean out the hole that lets gas to the spark area. You can bend the ignitor probe closer or farther away so that it goes to the path of least resistance. It should lite unless the gas is not getting to the spark area.

Top right burner on hotpoint gas range doesn't light


there is a spark ignition in the middle between the front and back burners....one for the left side and one on the right side. When it was cleaned i bet that the spark ignitor was slightly bent towards the front burner...now the gap is too big to fire the rear burner...the ignitor is very similar as the spark made in those push down lighters. so its safe to play around and adjust them as needed to make them work...Go ahead and take it apart and tinker with adjusting it...until you get both front and rear burners running again the way it was before.( peek at the otherside as a reference and try to make it match)
I hope this helps you out a little bit 8-)

Gas Burner spark on other location


When you turn a burner to the light position, all burners should spark. If one is not, clean burner head area where the burner is not sparking. (dirty from boil overs)
