Question about Microwave Ovens

1 Answer

All the burners are turned off on my gas stove, but one keeps sparking uncontrollably...its been all night now. I have lifted burner cap off and can see the spark but have no idea how to stop it. Our automatic spark button has been broken for months - so we usually use a lighter to to light the stove anyway!

This is dangerous.
You should be able to stop it by unplugging the stove. The automatic spark requires electricity to work.
Unplug it and leave a comment with the make and model and I will assist you in finding a replacement.

    Ive already tried to find the plug...unfortunately it is just a stove top with cupboards underneath, sink to one side, and more cupboards on the other so cant find it. will keep trying!
    The stove is called: Hotpoint BG25. Made in Great Britain.

    Sparking sound persists after burner is turned off:
    Remove knob by pulling it straight off the stem and check the bottom of the knob for any buildup of soil.
    Electrodes:
    After cleaning, with a dry paper towel or scrub pad, make sure the notch in the burner head is positioned toward the electrode.
    Look underneath the stove top and you should see the electrical wire running into an outlet or through a hole in the cupboard to the outlet.
    If the above does not stop the sparking I believe I have found the part you may need to replace.
    Copy and paste the link here:http://www.espares.co.uk/part/cookers-an...
    See if this matches your part.
    I hope it is just a bit of grease in your electrode that can be found by removing your burner cap and burner head. I could not find your specific manual but found a similar one. You can find it here:http://products.geappliances.com/Marketi...
    How to find the electrode is on page 11.
    I will not rest until your problem is resolved.

I have a kenmore stove whose burners wont light. oven works fine. burners will spark but no gas comes out. recently I turned off the power to the stove by turning the fuse off. what do I need to do to get...


If the gets give no gas then sounds like a Thermocouple, this is a device that allows the gas to come on after a period of time ensuring that the pilot is lit and heated up this thermocouple, once it heats it then allows gas to enter and ignite the main burner..hope this helps ,please leave feedback.
