If you ever see sparks coming from the range or oven, unplug it immediately. Then, when the unit has cooled down, try to find exactly where the sparks came from.

If the sparks came from an obvious place like the surface burner heating elements or the bake/broil element, repair or replace any defective component you find. If you can't locate the place the sparks came from--or can't fix the problem yourself--contact a qualified appliance repair technician.

My igniter does not light my BBQ. Battery is good and it makes a clicking noise when I push the button. What is the potential problem?


The potential problem is you're either out of gas or the regulator is locked up.

To solve this problem, first be sure you have adequate gas in the tank. If that checks out OK, do the following:

1. Turn the gas tank valve OFF and disconnect the hose from the tank.

2. Wait 5 minutes and reconnect the hose to the tank.

3. Open the tank valve VERY, VERY SLOWLY (Slow motion, slow).

4. Once the tank valve is fully open, light the burner farthest from the tank first and set the burner
control knob on HIGH. Does the flame height look correct for being set on HIGH? If so, light
the remaining burners the same way. Do all the burner flames look correct? If so, you solved
the problem. Remember, to always open the tank valve Very, Very Slowly.

If that didn't solve the problem, you will need to replace the grill's Hose/Regulator Assembly. It runs about $30.00 at any home center or hardware store that sells grills & accessories. If you replace it, turn the tank valve ON Very, Very Slowly.

Hope this helped you to troubleshoot and solve the problem. Happy Grilling!!

Thanks for choosing FixYa.

Brinkman gas grill won't start. Don't hear clicking sound. Hooked up new gas tank, but no success


Victor, are you sure you're getting gas to the burners after installing the new tank? You can try match lighting them to make sure. But, I suspect, that it's the installation of the new tank, that's causing the problem.

To test my theory, tune the tank valve OFF and disconnect the hose from the tank. Wait 5 minutes and reconnect the hose to the tank. Ope the tank valve VERY, VERY SLOWLY (Slow motion, slow). Once the valve is fully open, try lighting the burner that's farthest from the tank first and turn it to high. Did the burner light and does the flame height look correct? If so, light the remaining 3 main burners the same way. Did those burners light and the flame heights looks correct? If, so you solved the problem. Remember to always turn the tank valve ON VERY, VERY SLOWLY.

Hope this helped you solve the problem. Happy Grilling.

Hi, my grill will not start. I press the ignitor button and I can hear the clicking which sounds like it's coming from the side burner area not the main burners. No lighting though, any ideas? I replaced...


Ronald, I doubt that the gas regulator has much to do with this problem, unless the tank valve is turned OFF or the gas tank is empty Have you tried match lighting the burners, to determine if you're getting gas to them? Also, check the spark ignitors at each burned for a grease build up. using a cotton ball and alcohol clean each ignitor tip.

If you've checked all of the above and you're now getting a spark at each burner, but little or no gas to the main burners, do the following:

Turn the tank valve OFF and disconnect the hose from the tank. Wait 5 minutes and reconnect the hose to the tank. Turn the tank valve ON VERY, VERY SLOWLY (slow motion, slow). Once the tank valve is fully open, light the burner farthest from the tank first and turn the burner to the highest setting. Does the flame height look correct? If so, light the remaining burner(s) the same way. Does their flame height look correct? If so, you solved the problem. Remember to always turn the tank valve ON very, very slowly.

Happy Grilling!!

NO GAS FLOW INTO BURNER TANK FULL. ALL CONNECTIONS OK. NO GAS FLOW TO BURNER


Hopefully it is something simple like turning on the full tank too fast. Turn it off, disconnect it, reconnect it and turn tank valve back on very slowly. If this doesn't resolve the issue, click on my username and scroll down my profile to my tips and tricks for gas grill lighting issues. One of them should help.

When I turn on a burner, all the other burners click like they are trying to turn on as well. The clicking is continuous and really annoying! Thanks for your help! Tammie


Anytime you turn on a gas range all burners click for safety reasons. If a knob has been turned by mistake the gas lights to prevent gas from escaping into the room. If you turn the control knob past the LITE position after the burner lights you should be OK and stop the clicking. If the clicking continues regardless you have a defective ignitor switch that must be replaced.

Laars Lite 2 Gas-Pilot stays on, but main burner shuts off 10 min


A polit generator produces about 750 MV without a load. Under load it will drop to about 200-250 MV. If the system is working don't worry about it. If the system is not working replace the pilot generator and retest. Pilot generators usually go bad slowly.

My ignitor on my ge cooktop keeps clicking slowly in off mode


As it relates to 5 burner gas cooktop Model Number JGP 963SEJ1SS
First - Ignite the flame then reduce the flame to between low and medium.  If the igniter continues to click, you most likely have a contact switch issue related to the problem burner.  
Unplug the cook top and turn off the gas.  After the gas is turned off, disconnect the gas line.  
Remove the cook top.  

Unscrew and Remove ALL of the burner bases by lifting them up.  The ceramic igniters may be difficult to remove but they will come loose if worked out slowly.  
Pull of the wire connected to the igniter. 
Remove to cook top top plate from the base, exposing the internal gas valves and wiring.
All of the burners are wired in parallel.   Lift off and unsnap the casing of the problem igniter switch.  The repair may require something as simple as, 1- cleaning the contact strips, or 2- slightly bending the non stationary contact strip to keep it from coming in contact with the stationary contact when in the off position, or 3- replacing the switch. 
Unless you comfortable and understand how electric systems and switches work, this is a job for a qualified repair person.
