    The left front burner on our cooktop has never worked. The repairman said that it was defective. That was several years ago when it was brand new. We have gotten along with the 4 other burners,but now I cook more and would love to have the 5th burner to operate.

    Front right smaller burner will not light even though igniter works at trying. The gas orifice I removed, blew pressurized air through it. When held up to the light it shined through it and was visible in the elbow.

    What's next|?

    I don't know the model number but I bought this as a display unit 4 years ago ... just now put it in and all 5 burners worked right off the bat .... 1 day later I have one burner that won't light, igniter works but no gas coming up on the one burner ...I think there may be a spider inside it. Do I just remove the brass nut on top and clean it out?

Take apart the cooktop and it is the potentior on the valve for the simmer burner that is usually the issue.

I have a GE JGP963 gas cooktop. When you turn the knob the igniters come on all the burners. The spark is good. This works on all knobs. But what happens is that it will not light. It appears there is no...


Hello, Is this a new unit? Is it still under warranty? Has it been recently worked on or converted to another type gas? I'd call the manufacturer (or the company that installed it) and have them send out a qualified technician to fix it. Are the burner flames a nice even blue color? Can you adjust the flames from high to simmer without them going out. If it was converted to another gas type, it's possible the wrong size orifices were put in or possibly that it needs to be converted because it is a natural gas unit that should be changed to propane, or vice-versa. Also be sure the appliance regulator was switched over to the correct type of gas. These are just a few ideas that come to mind. Let me know if any of these apply. Douglas

2 burners wont ignite


Hello there:
A burner doesn't work The most common problem for gas surface burners is that they get gas but don't light. This is generally caused by dirt or grease splatters on the burner itself. Residential-grade range/stove burners are round and have small holes around their perimeter to allow gas to flow out and create a round flame. The gas coming from these holes is often ignited by a small vertical row of holes on the side of the burner. If these vertical holes are clogged or obstructed, the gas can't ignite. The solution is to clean the burners thoroughly. Use a toothpick to clear the small vertical holes, then allow the burner to dry completely and try lighting it again. If it doesn't light immediately, either repeat the procedure or call a qualified appliance repair technician.

Miele KM 3474 stove top lights but turns off after 30 seconds


Does the burner attempt to re-ignite after it goes out? If so, it's probably the therocouple. If not, it could be the burner valve. Be sure the caps and rings are correctly seated on the burners and be sure to firmly press the burner knob down to start the flame.

Flames too high Jenn-air CCG2423


Definitely cut your loses and get a cooktop with a warranty. That unit sat on the back shelf for a reason.......it didn't work properly.

Also, but a cook top that is compatible with the safety knobs they sell as child guards at places like lowes and home depot.

here is a link to show you how the child proof knobs work

GE Monogram ZGU48N6D- None of the Ignitors "click"


We just had that problem - the igniter is electric - if none of the burners are "clicking" it could be a power problem. unplug the stove and check whether the outlet is working. In our case, the outlet the stove is plugged into has a "GFI outlet with a reset button. So we reset the outlet and that fixed the problem.

Dead burner on kitchenaid gas cooktop?


it is strange that you have no gas and no spark! if you held a match to the burner and turned the burner valve on it would lite di spite a failed ignitor,but for it not to lite, the burner valve[its what the knob attaches too] would have to be blocked[thats rare]or ........i got it .....the knob is broken.thats the only thing the burner valve and the spark ignitor have in common.try a knob from another burner................again.you have spark,because others are working.spark on troubled burner would work if valve blocked at orifice outlet,and if spark failed you would still get gas they work independent of each other,[but in unison].thats why im thinking knob.its the item that works both .when you turn the knob it opens the gas valve and as the gas valve rotates by turning the knob it activates or turns the spark switch so it closes the curcit allowing the electricty to the spark moduel.hey i hope that helps a little. God bless ,tom

Clicks occur in "low" position instead of "lite" position


Sounds like the switch electric sending unit needs to be Ither cleaned and dry good or replced. It's not hard at all, They are located under the knob switches, you will have to remove the knobs and the top cover, they look like a small square box wit a hole in the middle with two wires on the sides, just unplug the wires and lift the box off the switch rod. cleane them and dry them good and put them back.......that should do it.....Good Luck

Two burners wont ignite


Sounds like the electric sending unit for the right burners is not working. Do you hear the cliking noise on the right side when you turn the knob to LITE? If not then you need to replace the electric sending unit, they are located under the knobs, they are a smal square box that goes on the switch valve rod, they have tow wires on the side, just unplug and lift, and look for greasse or anything that might interrup contact, you might be able to use the same ones, or just replace with new ones....Good Luck

(2) front Burner igniters on my new Matag 30" Cooktop continue to click


Sounds like water got into one of the switches. This usually happens when you wash the knobs. Water stays in the holes and runs down the shaft when replaced. Maytag has issued a recall on some stoves because this can be a fire hazard. UNPLUG THE COOKTOP UNTIL THIS IS FIXED!!!!!!!!! This has happened to me with a whirlpool unit and it tripped a breaker and shot sparks across the kitchen. First go to Maytags web site and see if yours has a recall. If so Maytag will fix it free. While you are waiting leave stove unplugged and light with a match. If you need to fix this yourself disconnect the wires from the two switches this should stop the sparking. Connect one switch at a time and see which switch is bad. Most of the time the electric part of the gas valve can be replaced seperately. and you can do this yourself. If you must actually disconnect a gas pipe unless you really know what you are doing call for service.
