High performance burner slow to light

After a year of use, my middle (largest) burner is slow to light, sometimes not lighting at all. The ignitor clicks vigorously but often is not able to light the burner. I can manually light the burner with a match so there is gas coming thru. The other burners light fine. Also I'm on LP.

Replace that ignitor on that burner only. Not drawing enough amps to spark properly.

My GE Monogram gas range will not light. The igniter keeps going off but the gas will not light.

Hi, sometimes cooking spills stop the ignitor from working. Clean the cook top thoroughly and try it again. Spills can also make the ignitor go off randomly when you are not operating your cooker. Check if the ignition point where the zap comes from is not turned or bent too far from its original position. If you have a gas shut off make sure it is fully open to supply enough gas. If all else fails buy a cheap hand held ignitor to start your gas stove. If the cause is a spill which sometimes the problem can persist even after cleaning it may take a while for it to work again. If the problem is with all six burners then your ignitor probably needs replacing. When you hear the ignitor zap check to see if the electronic zap appears to jump across to the edge of the burner. If it doesn't it will not light the flame no matter how many times you try. I hope this helps you.

I have a Jenn-Air Gas Glasstop stove. When I turn the large burner on the gas turns on but the ignitor switch does not light the burner. When I turn any of the other burners on I can see all the ignitor...

It sounds like there may be an issue with the ignitor switch for the large burner. Here are a few things you can try to troubleshoot the issue:
  1. Clean the ignitor: Sometimes the ignitor can become dirty, which can prevent it from working properly. Try cleaning the ignitor with a soft brush or cloth to see if that helps.
  2. Check the wiring: Make sure the wiring for the large burner is properly connected and not damaged. If you're not comfortable working with wiring, it's best to call a professional.
  3. Replace the ignitor switch: If cleaning the ignitor and checking the wiring doesn't help, it's possible that the ignitor switch for the large burner is faulty and needs to be replaced. You can find replacement parts online or through a professional repair service.
  4. Call a professional: If you're not comfortable troubleshooting or making repairs yourself, it's best to call a professional appliance repair service to diagnose and fix the iss

On a gas 5 burner Jenn-Aire the middle largest burner suddenly will not spark or ignite,; it just clicks

The problem could be that there is a grease film the is prevnting the ignitor from sparking and the metal lid on the burner could be slightly off. Simply clean the burner with a non greasy cleaner and make sure the burner lid is on properly.

Bad ignitor needs replacement

it may just need cleaning at where it sparks to the burner if it is sparking back down the electrode then it is cracked . Some igniters pull out others have a screw that holds them in.

Viking stove ignitor

the continues to click problem, for e it was only when my smaller burner was lit. theo others were ok. When I took the burner apart it was very dirty. I cleaned it up (a wire brush in my drill press) and it works fine now. I think it was just bad electrical conduction.

Clicking noise on cooktop even when all burners ignite

I have a viking gas cooktop. The ignitor on one of my front burners wouldn't stop clicking even after the flame ignited. I swapped that ignitor with the ignitor from a back burner, expecting that the problem was with the ignitor and that the back burner would start to click incessantly, but at least I'd have my favorite front burner for use. Instead, the front burner was then only clicking 50% of the time and the back burner was fine, suggesting the problem was related to the burner not the ignitor. I pulled the front ignitor a bit away from the burner and now it is working normally. Hope this helps.
