Whirlpool Gas Range Ignitors Not Clicking

Hi! I have a 6 year old Whirlpool gas range (Model SF315PEKWO). I just bought a ingitor clip for it since one of the ignitor fell into the stovetop after the clip broke. I took all the screw from the gas assemblies so that I could safely lift the top of the stove. I put the clip on the ignitor and inserted it back into the stovetop. All went well until I tested the ignitors. I hear the clicking at the back of the oven somewhere but all the ignitors no longer work. Have any ideas?? I looked for any loose connections from the ignitor cables but nothing seems to be out of place.
Any help would be awesome!
Thank You,

SOURCE: ignitors on all burners are not working

Hi, when any of the knobs is turned to the light position, all burners will spark. That being said, if one or more of the knobs is not switching the spark module, the problem is the switch mounted on the shaft of that burner valve. You need to replace the defective switch or you could turn on one of the good burners (to make the clicking occur) and then light the burner you really want.

I need to remove the top on my whirlpool gold gas range. It's model gs395legq3. It's about 9 years old. I got the clips in the front un-done but cannot figure out whats going on in the back. Has to be some...

How to remove the top on a whirlpool gold gas range model GS395LEGQ3, bought around the year 2000.

Please reall ALL directions before beginning. I suggest EVERYONE try step 2 before trying step 1, but not before reading ALL directions first!

First and most important shut gas valve off to your stove and unplug it.

Second and equally important, you MUST remove ALL sealed burners. You CANNOT get the top up(without messing something up)until you get the burners off. It is very easy to do. Just get a philips screwdriver or better yet a square drive bit that fits. If the screws look a little rusty(they probably do)insert your screwdriver or square bit and LIGHTLY tap the handle a few times, sort of like your pounding a nail. This helps to loosen the screws. Next just remove screws and carefully remove the burners by lifting STRAIGHT UP and gently twisting back and forth. Be watchful of the ceramic ignitors.

For the next step it is easier if you can pull out your stove so the front is about 5" in front of the counter-top. You MUST be careful that when pulling out the stove you don't kink/break/bend the gas line that goes to the stove. If your not comfortable you can pull out your stove without messing the gas line up it should still be possible to get the range top up but may be a bit more difficult.


1. Pull stove out so the front is about 5 inches out from your counter-top. Now gently pry the front of the range-top up and wedge something in there to hold it up(I used the handle on a plastic spatuala). You will only be able to pry it up about 1/4"-1/2". Use a flashlight and locate the clips holding the top down. They are located on either side about 3" in from the front. Use a butter knife and push the clip IN towards the center of the stove to release the range top. Once these clips are released you just have to lift the top up as it is on hinges. Just be careful and watch the wiring for your burner ignitors.

2. In order to get the top up you have to wiggle the front of the range top side to side in order to loosen the clips holding the range top. Try wiggling the top side to side and lifting at the same time. Hopefully the top will come loose from the clips then just lift up being careful of the ignitor wiring. If it does not come loose you may be able to use the butter knife method mentioned in step 1 but you will have to do it from the front of the stove which will be a bit more difficult.

All work is performed at your own risk. I am not licensed and take no responsibility for any work done by others.

Clicking ignitors

Take a hair dryer and dry the spark switches located on the end of each gas valve.
Sometimes when cleaning they get wet and do the clicking thing.
If that does not correct the problem you will have to replace the bad switch.

Gas Range has inconsistent gas flow

From what you've described and what I understand; the only part that requlates the gas flow "low or intermitten gas flow/pressure" is the "gas pressure regulator" located where the incoming gas flex-line connects directly.

The pressure regulator is about 3" x 3" metal square blockish' type device and can be replaced fairly easy. However, if and when replacing the pressure regulator, ensure you are using the proper gas - yellow teflyon tape of pipe dope paste to thread in the new part.

What is the model number of the range? (free standing - gas pilot only)

(The above suggestion is assuming you have the proper gas supply pressure to your home/range)

One burner does not ignite when the others ignite

hi there,

the clicking sound is good, that means that the spark module is working and you have power to the stove. you may have a faulty gas valve or ignitor. most gas ranges have electrodes as ignitors. check the ingitor before you look at anything else.
