One of the stovetop ignitors doesn't seem to work. this only affects one burner, the rest seem to work and in fact they spark/click when I am trying to light the dysfunctional one. i'm sure it is the ignitor not gas flow because I smell the gas that isn't catching and burning. how do i fix it?

2 of my 4 burners on my Magic Chef Pilotless Ignition oven/stovetop no longer ignite - I need to do it by hand. Every once in a while one works but mostly neither will light up - other 2 work fine. Do


If you are seeing sparking coming from ignitor then it would be more likely that the ignitor has gotten out of position and would need to be put back to proper positioning. If the ignitor is not sparking then you would want to get a new ignitor. Here is the ignitor to order.
There is a video on that same parts page to show you how to make the repair.

Viking model VGR48 stovetop burners will not ignite?


First shut off the gas supply & disconnect electrical power to the range.
  • Remove all the burner control knobs, grates, burner caps & trim rings.
  • Remove the 2 screws securing the manifold panel, one from each corner. The panel will drop down.
  • Remove the screws from each manifold pipe mounting bracket. Remove 1/4 inch hex head bolt from the center of the manifold pipe. Push supply tube back to release from manifold pipe. Lift the cooktop assembly at the front to clear the 1/2 inch locator pins attached to the top of the bodyside.
  • Place cardboard between each side of cooktop & bodyside to prevent damage.
  • Move the cooktop to one side, being careful not to put stress on the wiring harness on left side.
  • Remove the wire from the electrode.
  • Remove the screw from the electrode mounting bracket to release the electrode.
You can replace the electrode & reassemble following instructions in reverse order.

Spark ignitors on ge jgp636 either don't work or lght wrong burnr


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.

Igniters on stovetop work intermittenly model #cgs3760adq


You didn't say how old the appliance is but:

Check the spark gaps at all of the ignitors at the burners and also be sure everything is as clean as possible. The ignitors have a service life.

If the problem persists, there could be an issue with the control board.

Ignitors constantly click.


Hi, it is possible, that your spark module, need replacing, but it could be other things too. could be faulty ignitor switch, whenever you turn knob to light burner, it activate switch, remove burners, lift top off, you will see, that each knob are connected to valve with two, or some model has one wire, connected to it, check for any breaks in wiring harness, could be something simple like bruise wire touching cooker body, etc. also turn knob and light any burner, turn knob clockwise all the way, let burner light, then gently turn knob counter clockwise and listen to hear if clicking stop, if clicking continue until burner goes off, it's possible you'll need to replace spark module, sometimes, they get short circuited, takes about 30 mins to replace module, $90/ hr. oouch, big companies, does that price, includes, price of module? can you get a regular repair guy, ask a friend they might know one. good luck.

Spark ignitors on gas stovetop wont stop sparking


Make sure yo haven't spilled liquid on the ignitor becuase this will cuase all ignitors to spark constantly. If all is dry, the spark module must be replaced.

My tappan oven will not always light


for the top burners you have to get to see the ignitors so that you can see the spark,the spark have to spark like a spark plug in the car, it most be on the tip of the ignitor.if not. the spark it's sparking on the wroung spot,wires may be wet or broken. thats one of the reason, the second one,there is small holes fasing the spark ignition on the burners when grease blocks them, they will not light, you can clean them with a paper clip or a safety pin. for the oven,some ovens do not have the spark sistem, they have the ignitor wich it looks like a small bar about 4 inches long by 1 inch some of them are round. thats the part that needs replacing

Stovetop ignitor


Not that this will fix it for sure, sometimes it does. Remove the top of the burner that is causing the problem, and take some sand paper and clean the top of the ignitor and the bottom of the burner itself. That will sometime cure the problem. If not, you could have a bad spark module, or a wiring issue.

Gas stovetop not igniting without matches


If the rest of the surface igniters are working, more than likely your spark module is working fine. (This is normal, by the way) I would suspect that you have a bad spark electrode at the burner in question, a bad burner switch, or bad wiring.

I found several part listings for the model number you posted this question under at repairclinic.com. You will need to provide a more complete model number in order to narrow your search to ensure you get the right part. You can find your model number on a nameplate around the oven door opening, or lower drawer opening (if equipped). Some manufacturers also place this information on the back of the range.

I hope this helps answer some of your questions. Please reply back to this posting if you need further troubleshooting guidance.

All 4 ignitors just stopped working on the stove top...no more 'clicking' sounds


1 Check to be sure unit is properly connected to power supply. 
2 Check for a blown circuit fuse or a tripped main circuit breaker. 
3 Check to be sure ignitor is dry and clicking. Burner will not light if ignitor is damaged, soiled or wet. If ignitor doesn’t click, turn control knob OFF. 
4 Burner ports may be clogged.
