Question about BlueStar RNB36 (Gas) Kitchen Range

1 Answer

BlueStar RCS 6 burner range - brand new - ALL 6 burner ignitors spark when I turn on ONE burner. I came across some BlueStar literature that suggested this would be a problem. A representative from Signature Marketing, the distributor for this area, claimed this is supposed to happen and the unit is not broken. Today, I spoke with a salesperson at Eurostoves in Massachusetts - this woman cooks on a BlueStar at home - Eurostoves ran demonstrations on a BlueStar range as part of their sales efforts - only ONE burner is supposed to spark at a time. "It needs to be adjusted," she said. I'm sure this unit is broken right out of the factory.

The units that are ending in BSS have multi ignition like you describe and the units ending in BV1 have single ignition.

BSS = All ignite
BV1 = single ignition

Nearly brand new wolf range ignitor not working

The cleaner most likely got soap or debri in the gas orifice, this is where the gas goes into the the burner cap. If you can see a spark/light then the ignitors are working properly, just not getting fuel to the area. Pull the burner cap off, check area for particles on/in bruner. Take a twist tie and strip the outer covering off, Use it to clean out the orifice for the gas. Burner ring has an area where the gas comes in. Ensure it too is free of any debri.

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

Ignitor keeps clicking when flame is on low. One burner only.

Blew out ignitor & adjacent burner hole with canned compressed air.

The electronic ignitor on front right burner no longer works.

All ignitors should fire regardless of which burner is turned on. See if the right front will light up if you turn on another burner or look for a spark. If not, the ignitor is probably fouled and needs a good cleaning. If the right front burner will spark or ignite when a different burner is turned on, it is the right front control switch - not an easy fix. When cleaning the cook top, if you remove the knobs, any liquid that gets into the switches will short them out. Found that out the hard way.

No spark and no power: Bluestar 36

Is there power at the outlet? I know that it is probably very hard to get to behind the heavy Bluestar, but it looks like you may have to pull the stove away from the wall and make sure it is still plugged into a working outlet. All of those stove functions are fairly separate, so to have all of them go out, you probably have a power supply problem. There may even be a break somewhere between the plug and where it splits off into the fan/light/ignitor parts.

Igniter wont stop firing

Make sure that the small burner holes near the ignitor are not clogged. if no flame is visibly touching the ignitor, then the ignitor will not sense that it is lit. The fact that it seems to take longer to light than normal leads me to this as well.

If there is good flame contact with the ignitor, then sometimes it will not sense the flame if you had a boilover and water got down between the wire and the ceramic body. This can happen with oil as well. Removing the ignitor (carefully! if you crack it, it will "leak" its spark and not work properly), cleaning it and letting it thoroughly dry will help. Most of the time I just leave the burner on and the clicking will stop after about a minute when the whole assembly heats up and drys out.

If all that checks out, then the ignition module is bad. Mine went out after 6 years use. They are available online (I bought mine from a Viking parts store...surprisingly). Replacement is fairly easy. Turn off the power to the stove. Remove the screws that hold the burner knob/oven knob faceplate to the range (Two are only accessed by opening the oven door, the rest are tucked up at the top of the faceplate and under the top-front lip of the range) The ignition module has many wires attached and they are easy to remove. MAKE SURE YOU ATTATCH THE WIRES TO THE NEW MODULE IN EXACTLY THE SAME SPOTS ON THE NEW IGNITOR. That includes the same ignitor wires that are all colored the same.

I absolutely love my Bluestar. I wish my convection fan was quieter, but the power of the range is simply awesome.

No spark

Replace your Invensys U-67204-8 0+4 Module: a Tytronics 4 Point Re-ignitor #RI 120E-4: Point Re-Igniter.pdf which has replaced the older Invensys Module on BlueStar Ranges like the RNB304BV1 - 4 Burner Range (also used in some Viking Ranges): Call Prizer-Painter 800-449-8691 for instructions if not sure how to do this. Also, may want to do some cleaning first overall on the Burners and the Igniters - BlueStar Part #741801: or replace if broken:

Cook top will not light

Try to light it with a match to verify gas is getting to the burner.
If it light with a match you will have to repair the ignitor for that burner.

Problem with getting burner to light.

All my ignitors spark when I turn one of them on. I'v been told it is normal. I had a problem before and the tech that replace the ignitor said the issues is with alignment. Try to rotate the burner a bit left or right and see if it fixes it.
