SOURCE: Some Burners Will Not Ignite

probably a worn wire to the electrode or a cracked ignitor. you are faced with taking off the hobtop and looking - no easy solution. you should not do this unless you are confident and don't interupt the gas path

SOURCE: Counter top stove burner won't light

Hi, You asked a very generic question but I will try to give you a good answer. If the pilot is good and you can light the burner with a match, (this checks everything else) then the most common problem would be the burner holes in front of the pilot are clogged. When cool, remove the burner and inspect the holes, any debris needs to be removed, a bent paper clip works really well. Compressed air helps as well. If there is a tube to the pilot make sure it is exactly where it belongs and that it is clean. If the match didn't light the burner or the flames is not all blue like the rest, there is something else wrong and you need to get back to us with a make and model to better help you. Make sure the burner gets seated back on the orifice correctly and best of Luck to you!

SOURCE: When lighting one of the burners, the ingnition knob has to be held down over ten seconds for the flame to stay lit when the knob is released..

Lift the top of the Stove up.
Look for a Small line that goes to the Affected Burner.
At the end of that Line you will see a small Flathead Screw.
Turning That screw Clockwise Adjusts your Pilot Light for that Burner.
Be careful not to Adjust to High, it would just be a Waist of gas.

hope that helped.

Viking stove burners blow out and relight if you tap gas valve. Hot surface igniters glowing but burner still loses flame and then make gushing noise. Is it the valve or the worn igniters?


Hi,

Which model do you have? Sound s light your unit re-ignites if flame goes out, if so, I would clean the burner. This means with a old toothbrush remove everything baked or burnt on. Assure your small orifice with in the burner is clean and you can see the port (hole in the center). Most of the time I have found clogged burners, or the burner cap (selected models) were installed incorrectly to cause this issue. Give that a shot and get back to me if you have more to add or just more questions.

Thanks

My Jenn-Air range top will spark but no ignition. Gas does not seem to have enough pressure on that burner


Generally the issue with this is not that you don't have the correct pressure but the Burner top hat that displaces the gas is dirty.
Remove the metal rack to expose the burner itself. Make sure it's not been used recently to prevent a burn. Carefully lift the little burner cap off. This is the piece with all the holes in it the flames come from. They generally just sit on top. You will need a flashlight, know look in the little slits below the cap for cleaning material buildup. A tooth pick or a stiff bristle tooth brush can be used to clean these little slits.
The cleaning products used to clean stove tops tends to leave little trace amounts of surfactants that over time block these little slits and prevent the escaping gas to flow towards the ignitor preventing the burner from lighting.
Once you have this clean replace the top. Put the pan grate back on and try to relight the stove.
I am sure this should fix you issue. If it doesn't please let me know and I can give you some other tips to try.

My 5-burner 36" gaggenau has stopped working. I


Hello.
What the problem is a part in the cooktop that opens to let gas flow to the knobs as soon as they are turned on is bad and no gas coming to surface unit burners. This a safety feature that the German goverment(where Gaggenau is made) requires that part to prevent a gas leak when cooktop is off.

Gas cooktop igniting and lighting but when you stop the igniting the gas does not stay lit


It seems like one of your burners is clogged. You made need to use some oen cleaner and a small toothbrush to clean the burner. If the problem occurs with all the burners, then you have a blockage in the gas supply line. you willm have to take it apart at the stove and clear it out. Check the main gas connection and at the burner(s) to spot the debris clogging. Make sure to shut your gas valve off behind the stove. Good luck... hope this helps.

All of the burners on my range started flikering at the same time and they were off. I could not stop them. I saw a little smoke escaping from the rear right burner. It finally stopped flickering and now...


yikes .. you have a very dangerous condition there ... ventalate the area and turn the gas off immediatly.. there is a shutoff valve somewhere in the gas line coming to the stove top .. if you cant find that then shut off the gas at the gas meter or call the gas company to do that for you (its free) ...
your problem is likely a loose pipe or cracked manafold .. it is leaking gas under the cooktop .. i would replumb the unit and check for cracks .. or call a professional .. your unit comes with a 1 year warranty or an additional 4 years if you bought extra coverage .. that probably wont cover a bad installation if thats the problem (unless the repair company installed the unit to start with) .. but will cover the stoves inside plumbing ..
your stove is not safe the way it is .. if you can still smell gas then you shouldnt be in the house until the gas is turned off ... windows should be open .. dont turn on lights or other things that can ignite the gas .. and absolutely dont try to relight the burners until the problem is fixed ..

5 burner tappan stove. oven takes a long time to reach 350 and doesnt stay hot also a hissing sound when you first put on, called the gas co. and it wasnt gas leaking. a loud popping sound also


By this description you gave it sounds as your oven burner has a flash back ,when it is like that does your flame look very yellow and gives off a Funny Smell ( which i Will think it is CARBON MONOXIDE . Remove the Oven burner make sure you watch for any wires attached to the burner (yes even in a Gas Stove) that would be part of your safety device . Make sure there is NO Rubbish in your Burner and your Burner
Well . Clean it out Make sure your Injector is Clear Carefully replace your Burner Making sure it fits over the Injector ,Replace any wirer if you removed any and relight

Poorly functioning Shipmate stove


Hi

Normally pressing red buttons on stoves is for lighting the oven. You press the button, light the pilot light, leave it depressed for a minute and then that heats up the thermocouple, which opens a valve and allows gas to the main burner.

Shipmate Stoves are still in business, so you could contact them. The link also suggests places for Shipmate propane gas stove spares.
