Range igniter acting strange

I inherited this range when I bought the house and don't know about gas ranges. Can't find the manual. I turn the knobs for the ranges and no matter which one I turn on the igniter on the right front keeps snapping (I can see the spark). All the burners turn on ok, including the one that snaps, but the sparking and snapping won't quit. Any idea what it's doing and how I can fix it?

You most likely have a defective spark module. This is a device that transforms standard household current (120 volts) down to about a 12 volt spark to ignite the gas. You should probably call someone who is experienced in this field.

I have a Hotpoint gas range that has electric ignition for the oven. However, I don't have electric at my cabin. Is there a conversion kit for a straight pilot ignition available? The model number is...

Most gas ranges with electronic ignition aren't equipped to have a straight pilot ignition.
I'm don't even think they make conversion kit because of the routing of the gas tubing for the pilot source.

Usually you have to turn the gas knob way over to get the "click-click-click" of the igniter.
Its just as easy to turn on the gas and light with a match...or a long butane lighter.
Even a "striker" used in welding will provide a source of ignition.
A last ditch effort would be to get a replacement gas grill igniter...all ya gotta do is place the bottom of igniter on metal surface and press red button. (kinda works like a spark plug) and no A/C needed.

Hope this helps some.

Gas hob is very difficult to start. have to hold

I've just had this prob on an inherited (just moved into new house) A2. Thought I was losing the plot as followed instructions to the letter re starting gas hobs. Got an engineer in to give the ecking thing a general service & told him about the hob. He said I wasn't pressing the knob hard enough. If you press the knob enough to make the ignition click, press the knob a bit further (it will go a bit further "in" honest). If you do that it should start like a good 'un (I felt sooo daft). Something to do with magnets!! Anyway, give it a try (this works for me unfortunately I've had the damn inner glass on the main oven go pop - yes, infront of an engineer twice in less than ten days. Knobs aside, I'm starting to go off this cooker. I want to cook to eat not have a "pretty" in the kitchen!).

Electronic Ignition for Gas Stove Doesn't Work

We have the same problem constantly. We have discovered that if we disconnect from electrical outlet, we "reboot the interior control" and it starts again. Said to say, tonight it doesn't seem to be working. I hate these! I'm going to go look for an "old fashioned gas range."/

Ge spectra gas stove top not lighting

There is nothing fancy about how the gas controls work on this unit. Do all burners give you the same problem? If so, it could be a kinked service hose or a service valve that has been partly shut. If it is limited to a single burner or two, the valve may be gummed up and should be replaced.
