MAYTAG GAS COOKTOP IGNITER PROBLEM only 2 igniters spark

I have a 4 burner CSG5600CAW and 2 of the burners always spark without any problem, the other 2 spark intermittently (if at all). Lately, these 2 have no spark whatsoever.
Any ideas?

    Thanks

Hello
Check and make sure that the electric sending units to the side that it's not sparking ( Left side or Right side) are good, you can check that by replacing the one that works with the one that does not. they are located under the knobs on the switch rod, it's very simple, they just sit there with 2 wires, just lift and unplug the wires and replace with the good ones, and if they start clicking when you turn the knobs, then just replace the bad ones with new ones.
Hope this help

On a 4 burner Gas cooktop - all 4 burners get gas but why does the igniter only work with the front 2?


Usually that's caused by clogged holes in the burners. I clean it out using a toothpick.

How do I replace spark ignitor on GE JGP963SEF1SS gas cooktop?


If none of your burners are igniting, you need a new Spark Module. If only 1 or 2 of your burners are not igniting, you may need a Spark Igniter. Click on the pictures below for a larger image.

The Spark Module is number 318 in the following diagram (underneath the burners):

The Spark Igniter is number 154 in the following diagram:

All 4 electrodes spark when only one is turned on


Electric gas igniters sometimes get stuck in one position causing a clicking sound. The clicking sound that you hear is the electric arc that is pulsing from the igniter conductor (wire) to ground (the gas burner). It receives power from the electrical outlet that the stove is plugged into.
Residue from food and sometimes cleaning products may be preventing the igniter from producing a spark (Arc) to the base of the burner. This is a common problem that occurs when the stove has been cleaned or food is allowed to build up. Make sure that the igniter and the burner base are clean and dry. This will help with proper operation. Oven cleaner and a small tooth brush may be used to accomplish this. Another problem with ignition may occur if you have too little (touching) or too much space between the igniter and the base of the burner; it will prevent the burner from igniting. You should only have a little more space than the thickness of a nickel between the burner base and the igniter. A good "blue" arc from the igniter to the burner base is optimal. If this doesn’t work, you may need to replace the electric igniter module. Good luck.

The igniter on the right front burner of my GE Gas cooktop does not work....I must use a lighter or match to ignite....What can I do? There is no clicking sound when I turn on the burner?


all burner igniters work at the same time - you may have a faulty electronic spark unit. change the spark unit. go to repair clinic dot come for the unit. also would be wise to check the ingniter start switch on the gas burner control knob

Our Dacor gas cooktop igniter won't click. When I turn on the burner, you can hear the gas coming out, but no click so the burner won't lite.


Go to RepairClinic.com and check on how much a new igniter is. Is there two or 4 igniters on your model (lift the top of the range up and it is the little silver piece sticking out with a white base around it), If its 2 is the other side working? Make sure there is no food deposits around where the gas and the spark meet.

Jenn-Air JGC8536 Gas Cooktop ignitor replacement


One burner doesn't consistently light. Igniter sparks but not the same as the other - "good" burners spark at top of igniter and moves around to light, "bad" burner sparks toward the bottom and doesn't move much. I can use the burner by lighting with a match and it works fine. Have tried cleaning with a toothbrush without much success
