there is a switch that is broken behind the knobs they cost no more than $15.00. remove the knob so that you can see it it's white in color.

Xl44 top burners light


There are a few things that can do this... First check the burner top to make sure the holes are not blocked. 2nd, Are the other ignitors sparking? If so then try rotating the slack in the burners left and right - this works sometimes. If not then try placing a screwdriver (you holding the handle only) and touch the burner and lean the screwdriver towards the ignitor... making the spark gap smaller. If you have used the ignition without a burner in place the ignition pack will short out inside it and there will not be a spark until the gap is very small. 3rd, are the ceramic part of the ignitors cracked at the base... take care when washing as they break easy if caught on the cloth. The ignition pack works in pairs so having one work suggests the pair of this one is something in the lead if there is no spark... A huge spillover causing a short or a bad earth... check the burners are firmly in place. There is more but too much detail to post here. Good luck

2 of my 4 burners on my Magic Chef Pilotless Ignition oven/stovetop no longer ignite - I need to do it by hand. Every once in a while one works but mostly neither will light up - other 2 work fine. Do


If you are seeing sparking coming from ignitor then it would be more likely that the ignitor has gotten out of position and would need to be put back to proper positioning. If the ignitor is not sparking then you would want to get a new ignitor. Here is the ignitor to order.
There is a video on that same parts page to show you how to make the repair.

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.

Spark ignitors won't stop sparking Kitchenaid KDDT2078WH


I hope that you have unplugged the range from the wall... Until this is resolved, you need to remove power from the stove. Use a lighter (long nose type is best) until this is corrected.

To identify the exact cause, you will need to expose (one at a time is ok) each of the contacts assoicated with the burner control knobs.

Each burner control knob has a setting (ignite) that closes a set of relay contacts and allows the igniter transformer to fire all of the spark-gap igniters. Since they all "spark" from any knob, you must isolate the knob that has the short circuit in it.

So do the following: (WITH THE POWER PLUG REMOVED FROM THE WALL....)

1. Expose the back side of a knob.
2. locate the press on wire on that knob.
3. Remove that wire from the know and place it on a piece of paper toweling (to isolate it from any metal).
4. Plug the stove into the wall and listen for sparking.
5. If NO sparking is heard, you have located the bad knob. If spark IS heard, unplug the stove and restore the wire. Move onto the next knob.
6. Repeat steps 1 - 5 until the spark does no appear.
7. Repair or replace that faulty knob assembly.

Let us know of your success.

Ignitors constantly click.


Hi, it is possible, that your spark module, need replacing, but it could be other things too. could be faulty ignitor switch, whenever you turn knob to light burner, it activate switch, remove burners, lift top off, you will see, that each knob are connected to valve with two, or some model has one wire, connected to it, check for any breaks in wiring harness, could be something simple like bruise wire touching cooker body, etc. also turn knob and light any burner, turn knob clockwise all the way, let burner light, then gently turn knob counter clockwise and listen to hear if clicking stop, if clicking continue until burner goes off, it's possible you'll need to replace spark module, sometimes, they get short circuited, takes about 30 mins to replace module, $90/ hr. oouch, big companies, does that price, includes, price of module? can you get a regular repair guy, ask a friend they might know one. good luck.

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.

Burners not igniting


If you are getting a spark, but no gas ignition, I am guessing that the gas is not reaching the ignitor. Burners have many holes that allow that create the flame pattern. There are usually one or two holes right next to the ignitor. If the holes are clogged or mis-alligned, there will not be any ignition. On sealed burner ranges, lift out the burner cap, clean it, and make sure it is alligned properly. On open burner ranges, inspect the holes near the ingnitor and use a small wire to clean them. Sometimes you have to remove the burner to get a good cleaning.

Ignitors keep firing by themselves after my aunt cleaned them 24 hours ago After she did the major cleaning of the stove I used the oven and it worked fine. I lit a burner (Probably front?) and the left...


Apparently there was a water spill around the burner control knob and in the burner itself; We ran the burner to create heat and then turned it off and let the water dry out and evaporate from the burner and igniter area.
