It is normal for all 4 burners to spark at same time.  Often burners won't light even when you can see the spark at them because the burner is dirty.  Take a pin and clean out all the holes in rim of burner.  Also look for small cracks in white part of igniter.  If cracked it must be replaced.

I have a Whirlpool Gas Range with Accu-Bake. On one of my burners the igniter comes on but the burner will not light. You can hear the clicking, but no flame. Is there something that I should clean and...


Hello,
In addation to the spark do you hear th egas flowing as well? if you do hear the gas and can light it with a match/bbq lighter but it doesn't light with the spark,it could be cleaned by using a safety pin/paper clip and push through the holes where the flame burns all around the burner(s) also steel wool will clean the burner.

A few months ago I lost one igniter on the left front burner. It clicks and gas flows but wont ignite.Now when I turn on the left back burner, the gas still flows but I hear clicking on the right side, not from that burner. It wont light either.

Gas top range ignition stuck on sparking


Hi,

The switches that are causing the sparking are located under the knobs that you turn the burners on. Lift the knobs off and you should be able to see them.

If you have just cleaned the range the switches may have gotten wet. You can try to dry them out with the hair dryer, or just let them sit for 24 hours with the range unplugged. If they continue to spark after that you will need the switches replaced.

I have a stainless 30" wide gas oven/range. The oven works and the top burners will spark but I do not get any gas flow to the top burners.


If it is just installed, your gas valve inside the range might be shut off. take out bottom drawer/broiler. Look for a switch in the back near the gas valve, it should be turned to the right.
Make sure the burner heads are positioned properly with the alignment pins.

Whirlpool 465. The top range burners will not ignite. I can hear and smell the gas. The oven burner works fine. Do I need to replace an ignitor for the range?


The bake is seperate from the burner ignition system. You may need a new spark module for the top burners. All burners should spark at the same time even if you are only trying to lite one burner.

Front burners on gas range won't light.


My GE gas range is really sensitive about the gap between the igniter electrode and the metal disc that covers the burner. If the metal disc is slightly off-center, no spark will occur. Check to make sure that the gap between the igniter and the nearest metal is about the same as the back burner.

Electric start gas range


All burners apark at the same time. If they don't light then electrodes (where the spark jumps off of) are either worn out or cracked or there is dirt in the area of the sparking. Clean thoroughly to diagnose this correctly.

Gas kitchen range


Most problems with gas ranges have to do with the flame--either it isn't quite right or it's nonexistent. Most new gas ranges have "electronic ignition," a spark igniter that starts the flame as gas flows through the burners. If, when you turn on a burner, it fails to spark but you hear sparking at other burners, the igniter or the burner switch probably needs replacement by an appliance repairperson. If your range has a pilot light, be sure the pilot light is lit.
