Igniters won't turn on & unwanted flammes

Sorry I am new and am not sure where to ask my question. I am not even sure where to find the answer to this email. Suddenly I don't have any sparks coming out of my Ge gas range. i think that is is the spark module since I didn't see any broken wire. Does it make sense? Now a more serious problem. When I used the front burner the rear burner randomly will lit. I am not sure where the gas is coming from or how it lit istelflp up, please help Thank you someone in distress

    Actually I didn't say that the rear burner's igniter is working. That was problem number two.
    I know that the spark module is bad because I have no sparks at all anywhere problem number 1

    Problem number 2 is that when I use a match to lit the front burner
    after a while the rear burner lit itself up. Flamme are actually present for a 1-2 second and there are gone, but the igniter still doesn't work.I am not sure how can the gas go through the rear burner when the knob is off. I didn't smell any leak??

    sorry If I did not express myself correctly.
    thank you for replyingm though

    I love Mr Bean

The igniter is usually located behind the switch--it gives off a spark and such spark triggers the flame. I often adjusted its spark to directly hit the gas passage way but i wouldnt recommend it. You burner may also be too dirty- this may be the reason why you are seeing flames behind the switch( behind the switch is the initial gas passageway)... Do get an expert to do it!!!!

You say you have no sparks coming from your gas range, but your rear burner is lighting. That doesn't quite make sense. If some of your burners are lighting, then the problem can't be with the spark module. The spark module sends a spark to ALL the igniters at the same time. That is, EACH burner switch, when turned to ignite, will cause a spark to go to ALL the burner igniters at the same time. Just watch the next time you turn one of your burner switches on, and you'll see a spark at all the burners simultaneously. This is normal. I suspect that you have a bad igniter switch or wiring harness. For example, if you have a front burner that won't light, but WILL light when you turn on another burner, the spark is being provided by a working burner switch. This is also normal. Now, am I assuming that your back burner will not light properly, but will light if you use the front burner? If so, the burner switch for the rear burner is probably bad, or the wiring harness has a break somewhere. Now...if you have no sparks, as you say, but randomly a burner will light, then I would suspect a bad spark module. I hope I'm not confusing you here. In a nutshell: One burner doesn't work, but all others do - bad burner switch, or wiring harness. No burners light, or light randomly - spark module. I hope this helps you.

    Okay...that is odd. Yes, gas COULD go thru to the rear burner IF the gas valve on the switch wasn't shutting properly. But, you mentioned you didn't smell any gas. Normally, the tale tell sign of a gas leak is that familiar nasty odor. I would get some soapy water (dish detergent works well) and a small brush and dab it around the burner with the gas valve off to see you get any bubbles forming anywhere. This is the best way I know of to test for a leak without employing the services of the gas company or buying expensive test equipment used to "sniff" out gas leaks. You could have a slight leak that doesn't get your attention until enough gas has built up to ignite. In any case, this condition is not safe and if you can't resolve it on your own, shut the gas off and call your local gas company. I wish I had a better solution for you, but I hope this helps.

    PS Glad you love Mr. Bean...I do too.

Why is Fixya no bloody good at answering questions when you advertise you can answer questions

Sorry. I\'m from Europe, know things about electronics and computers but I don\'t drive a Kawasaki GTR 1000. Lots of questions about electronics, camera\'s, computers phones and operating systems I try to answer. For the more than 2000 answers I gave I got lots and lots of thanks, but I never got one penny. All the people who try to answer questions, do this for free. They at least have the standard they don\'t try to sell crap or don\'t answer things they don\'t have any idea from.

If none of all the volunteers has (or has had) a Kawasaki GTR 1000 it is not likely anyone can answer this question. I do have some manuals, yes even service manuals of motor bikes, but not one from Kawasaki, so I even can\'t look up what I could answer to your question.

I think one call to a place where they sell Kawasaki cam tell you what oil you need. They perhaps even have it in stock. But not knowing any motor home close to me, I do not make such a call.

I hope you understand all the volunteers here do their best, but can\'t answer all questions. I do have to admit your questions are very clear and better to understand than lots of other questions, but we (till now) don\'t have an answer.

Again Sorry.

If you're sure about your username - click on Can't access your account? under the login box.Check the first option "I don't know my password" and you'll be asked for an email where your login details/reset password instruction to be sent. You'll have to answer few questions (like security questions and contact details you've set when registering).

Cannot get an answer from Tuneup360 through email. Need registration and key code

I don't think Tuneup360 can be ranked among the best system optimizers. Sorry, I don't have the serial keys since I don't use this software. Of course you can obtain the code from many websites. But that would amount to piracy. Keep trying to contact the source.

I tried to loginto my Yahoo account but could not even after correct mail id & passowrk, i have entered to security, and customer service asked me some questions, where i have given correct zip code,...

Well I am sorry to tell you but unless you can answer the questions there is no way to access the account. The best that you can do now is to get another email account. I realise this isn't ideal, but there simply is no other way, as if you cannot prove who you are by answering the questions, it simply isn't possible to proceed.
You may however have some luck if you contact the Yahoo mail direct, go to Contact Us. and ask to speak or email or Chat to an administrator and explain what's going on, perhaps they can identify you some other way? and maybe you can gain access this way?

My yahoo email has been compromised. I say this because I have had the same password for years and now it is saying t is wrong. Even the security questions are saying my answers are wrong and I am 100%...

I think you left your account unsigned out and some one accessed it. After which he/she changed your account settings or information (password and security question).

But remember that when you signed up (originally), you were asked to insert a back up e-mail address. Do you remember it? Go to it (in the account info or settings) if he/she never changed it, you will be able to access his/her new password entry. If you use it and it opens, please change immediately. You can then sign up for a new e-mail address and send all your mails there, then redirect all the e-mails to your old account to your new account. Don't use this old e-mail as your contact while opening up a new one.

However, if some one changed even your contact e-mail used during signing up, then you wont be able to again access the old account. Some one could have hacked into your account.

Recently yahoo asked me to change my password. I accidently changed both my password and my yahoo ID. I lost all of my email addresses for friends and family. Can I get them back? I asked this question...

sorry you never got a reply for the first question you asked.
Now, to your question: the answer is NO. You cannot get the lost e-mail addresses back. They are gone and can never be retrieved. So sorry about that.......
Please let me know if you have anymore questions regarding this problem.
