Resettle the small center tops on the burners. If even one is slightly off center or not level, a burner will not light, although it will click. Cost me a service call to learn this!

Whirlpool WFG510S0AS2 range - stove burners work just fine, but both the oven and broiler does not stay lit. NOTE - this unit has been converted from natural gas to LP


when the lp conversion is done , it is normally just a jet size change that is done
however the air shroud has to also be adjusted to get a clean blue burn of the flame
The just jet change results in a slightly yellow flame which is incomplete burn of the gas and that creates carbon build up at the jet and burners causing partial blockage
I would suggest that you call in an accredited gas fitter to check the problem and if necessary , clean the jets and adjust the air shroud

The electric igniters for the stove burners stopped working. All four stopped at the same time.


If all 4 stopped working at the same time, the problem is with the spark modulator.

If the igniter is working on several of the burners but not on another, (or any variation), the problem is with the igniter wiring harness.

By design, the igniter for each burner is daisy chained in the wiring harness such that if one goes, the others will still work.

BROILER HAS NO REGULAR IGNITION DESPITE THE FACT THAT THE VALVE AND IGNITER ARE FINE AND BROILER AND ORIFICE IS IS CLEAN. GAS PRESSURE AND FLOW IS FINE. ONCE LIT (MANUALLY WITH A LIGHTER) THE FLAME W


How do you know the ignitor is fine? The ignitor for the oven is different than that of the burners. Rather than clicking, the oven ignitor will glow red. If when you turn of the oven you don't see a source of red light coming from under the oven bottom your ignitor is bed.

Oven has worked on and off for the last year, now doesent work at all, i have the igniter exposed and it is glowing red, you do not smell gas at first but after about 2-3 min you begin to smell the gas,...


If your unit has a separate gas valve for the oven burner, that would be my first guess. But I would also check to make sure that the thermocoupler was not corroded, coated or defective.

Broiler on top works but oven wont ignite


OK, it is likley that the oven ignitor isn't working and needs to be replaced. To verify if this is the problem, when you turn on the oven to BAKE and set the temp at say, 350. Watch through the window, (or you can have the door open). Look at the bottom, back, center and see if you see a bright orange glow appearing under the bottom panel.

If you don't, that is why the oven won't lit the gas. There is an ignitor for both the broiler burner at the top and for the bake burner in the oven compartment.

It might be possible that your oven uses the same ignitor for both the broiler and bake burner tubes, so you could swap them if you wish to confirm that is the problem before you go and order/buy a new one.

Sometimes the ignitor burns out half way through but because it still lits/glows, people think it's OK, but it won't get hot enough to signal the gas valve to open and allow gas to ignite and get the oven cooking.
If you want to see a line drawing and a parts list showing the ignitor(s), go to searspartsdirect.com and enter in the model number of your oven and click on the links shown.

Hope this helps and best regards!

Spark module clicks and gas will not stay lit, flame comes on but goes out


hi Clogged burners are a very common problem with gas ranges because foods spilled on the burners block the gas ports and prevent ignition. On some gas ranges you can remove the top ring of the burner to expose the ports. Here's how to clean a burner:
Step 1: Turn off the power supply, both gas and electric, to the range. Then remove the burner.
Step 2: Soak the burner in a solution of mild household detergent and water. Clean it with a soft cloth.
Step 3: Clear the gas ports with a pin or needle, rinse the burner, and let it dry. Caution: Do not use a toothpick or matchstick to clean the gas ports. If the tip of the wood gets stuck in the burner ports, it could cause a serious blockage.
Step 4: When the burner is completely dry, replace it, and turn on the power and the gas supply.
thank u.................

Yes, it could very well be an igniter. The igniter can still glow and not work. The reason being that the igniter (depending on type) needs to produce .25 to .37 amps in order for the gas valve to open. If this potential is never reached, the igniter will glow, but gas will never flow. Or, gas will eventually flow for a weak (slow) igniter and will take forever to ignite. Which could be the reason for your low bake temperature. The burner does not stay lit all the time during the bake cycle. It will cycle on and off as needed to maintain the oven temperature. If the igniter is taking a long time to relight the burner, it could take a long time to heat. The broiler has a separate igniter and probably doesn't get used as often as the bake igniter. You can test the theory by swapping the igniter between the bake and broil burners and see if the problem moves to the broiler. Make sure you secure power to the range BEFORE attempting to remove the igniter, however. You should not have to turn off the gas to do this. Everything should be accessible through the oven door and broiler. I tell you this, because a new igniter (depending on the type you have) can run as much as $100. It will probably be worth the effort just to be sure. I hope this helps you.
