The igniter works but gas won't light because there's no gas being ignited at all. The gas valve solenoid coils are weak or broken preventing the valves to open and allow gas to fire up. Replace both solenoid coils and everything will be fine like new. The coils are located sitting on top of the gas valves and there are two of them. It is a cheap and easy task to replace them. Indicate the exact model number of the dryer should you need further assistance.

I have a Brinkman BBQ.The igniter works and lights the main burner but when I turn on the second burner it wont ignite.I can light it manually so it clearly it is getting gas. What do I need to do?


Check the igniter with the gas off to make sure the secondary igniter is lighting if it has one. Otherwise reposition the igniter closer to the source. If it isn't flashing, if not, it needs replaced

Oven wont light


Chances are you have an oven igniter that is not working - pilot lights are no longer used because of energy consumption. That igniter needs to be replaced for the oven to light up and function.

Frigidaire professional series gas stove does not light. When handle is turned the "clicking" sound happens, with the smell of gas but no flame. what could be problem? 3 other burners work...


A few months ago I lost one igniter on the left front burner. It clicks and gas flows but wont ignite.Now when I turn on the left back burner, the gas still flows but I hear clicking on the right side, not from that burner. It wont light either.

OVEN WONT WORK


Even though the igniter is red, if you are not getting gas it is almost 100% sure that the igniter is simply not getting hot enough. A new igniter should get that valve to open and you will be baking like crazy.

My Amana oven will not light, the electric ignitor comes on, but it will not ignite the burner for it to come on. What do you think the problem may be?
