Blazer pocket micro torch will not spark. Gas comes out, but no spark to ignite it.


try to open up the part where the spark would come from. there should be a screw on the bottom or top to open it. This is where the flint would be.

The flint is probably worn down or it broke (you can buy new flints at pretty much any convince store around they are i believe $1-2 for 5 of them.

replace the flint and you will have a spark.

Gas top range ignition stuck on sparking


Hi,

The switches that are causing the sparking are located under the knobs that you turn the burners on. Lift the knobs off and you should be able to see them.

If you have just cleaned the range the switches may have gotten wet. You can try to dry them out with the hair dryer, or just let them sit for 24 hours with the range unplugged. If they continue to spark after that you will need the switches replaced.

When i turn on the oven the top hobs keep clicking on my canon cooker


Hello Brian
Welcome to Fixya.

You said, when you turn on the oven the top knobs keep clicking on my canon cooker.

If you mean the electronic ignition keeps clicking when you turn the oven, It sounds like one of the switches that is controlled by the knobs, is stuck and malfunctioning! It sounds like it needs to be replaced.
There are 5 electronic igniter's on a 4 burner gas range, and the fifth is in the oven.

Let me know how you do.
Please remember to leave a rating when you finish.
Thank You, Huuum

Sounds like one of the control knobs got stuck or shorted in the start cycle. Can you get access to the inside where you can see each of the control knobs? Look for wiring and unplug one at a time. This may help you figure which one is shorted.

How to light our gas cooker



Modern gas cookers use an electronic ignition switch rather than a pilot light to light the gas for cooking. This means you can light your gas cooker with the touch of one button instead of using several matches or a flint lighter. Of course, you still have the option to light the gas cooker by hand with matches or a flint lighter if the ignition switch does not work the first time.

1.Open the gas regulator valve by pushing it in and turning it to a low setting.

2.Push the ignition switch once.

3.If the gas cooker does not light on the first try, close the gas regulation valve for one minute by pushing in on it and turning it back to the "Off" position.

4.Open the gas regulation valve, set it a bit higher than you did on the first lighting attempt, and push the ignition switch again.

5.Light the gas with a match or a flint lighter if the gas cooker does not light when you push the ignition switch again.

Igniter


Does the knob control both the gas and spark, try turning on the knob only, if it starts to spark right away then it is possible that the switch is bad. because most of these units are designed where you turn on the gas then push in and hold the knob to ignite then release and spark should stop.

Spark continuously on


If you have recently cleaned it, you may have gotten moisture behind the knobs and into the spark switches. Be very careful not to let moisture get behind knobs. Very dangerous. If this is the case, they may dry out themselves and stop sparking. If not you may need to replace a spark switch behind knob.

If you have recently cleaned unit and got moisture behind knobs, this may stop when the spark switches dry out. If not you will need to replace spark switches behind the knobs.
