Is it normal to have a smell of gas in the initial start-up process using the stove top?


if you have electronic igniters you may get a wiff of gas at start up.
make sure your igniters are set properly so the burner lites right away and does not click click click for awhile before starting.

JGBS20BEW2AD, the stove top four cooking burner constantly clicks.


The igniter switch(s) has most likely failed shorted. Fairly common with gas ranges with spark ignition.

How do I lift the stove top to turn off pilot model # FGF366DCB?


there isn't a pilot in it,it has an electronic spark module in it.what problem are you having?when you turn it to lite it you'll hear a clicking sound,that's the sparking that lites the gas just like you're gas grill.if you want to remove the top you have to remove the two phillips screws out of each burner head,sometimes they don't come out and you have to drill them out,if the burner isn't shutting off the gas valve could be broke or the knob could be broke,if it's clicking just unplug it and you can lite the top burners with a match or bbq clicker to lite them until you get it fixed depending on what problem you are having.if the gas won't shut off by turning the knob you'll have to shut down the gas at the valve that feeds the stove.but like i said if you want to lift the top you have to remove all the screws in the burner heads.hope this helps you out.http://www.searspartsdirect.com/partsdirect/part-model/Frigidaire-Parts/Range-Parts/Model-FGF366DCB/1428/0124002?pathTaken=&prst=0&shdMod=FGF366DCB go to this site and you can look up your machine.

We are cranking up this BRAND NEW Vulcan flat top. Weh have the convection oven below up and running, but we can't even see a pilot light for the flat top. Advice anyone? Culinary-yours Chef Geir


older ovens have pilots but the newer machines are electronic ignition,there are ignitors in the oven and electrodes or ignitors on the top burners,when you turn the knob for the burner you should hear a clicking sound and see a spark around the burner,that's what lites the burner,the gas comes in and the spark ignites it,i don't know much about your machine but it can't be any different from other stoves.if none are sparking there should be a spark module in there or they could have separate modules,if you send the full model number i can look it up for you

Electronic ignition tries to lite, clicks 5 times, then goes POOF


Gas burners go "poof" when they have too much gas in the area upon lighting. This is normally due to the ignition source not being close enough to the initial source of gas. This is normaally corrected by ensure the main burner is clean so that it distributes the gas correctly and having the ignition source at proper strength and location. I would have to have good schematics of your heater to be more specific. I hope this helps.

You have to light burners on stovetop with a match all the time.


The pilots for the range top are beneath the top of the range top. YOu will see them if they are there. YOu stove may use electronic ignition and you can hear the sparking when you turn the knob to the "light" position.

If it is electronic ignition, make sure the stove is plugged into an operating outlet

Gas burners/electronic ignition


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.

Ge spectra gas stove top not lighting


If your top burners are not lighting or will not work, it is possible that the burners have become dirty or wet. Please follow the troubleshooting directions below before calling service:
  1. Turn you burner to the Lite position:

    If you hear clicking or sparking, go to Step 2.

    If you do not, check your circuit breakers. If the circuit breaker is ok, we recommend that you schedule service by calling 1-800-432-2737 or schedule service online.

  2. Clean the burner and electrode:

    First remove the burner grate, cap, and head. Use a needle or paper clip to poke through the holes on the burner head. Re-assemble and try the burner.

    Remove the burner grate, cap, and head. Even if it looks clean, wipe the tip of the electrode with a clean, dry paper towel and PRESS IT DOWN. Re-assemble and try the burner, again.

    Check to see if the burner works, If not, then go to Step 3.

  3. Re-assemble - Make sure that each burner top matches its burner bottom. The burner top will lay flat if put on correctly.

    Check to see if the burner works, If not, then go to Step 4.

  4. The spark igniter is operating properly, but the burner is still not lighting. At this point, we would recommend that you schedule service by calling 1-800-432-2737 or schedule service online.
