GAS COOKTOP IGNITOR SERVICE:
Common problems with gas cook-top burners stem from:
a boil-over that causes a clog the gas flame tube jets,
the failure of an ignitor switch such that there is no spark for one burner,
a short in a switch resulting in one electrode not sparking at all,
failure of the stove's central spark module.
Cleaning of the burner parts can be a simple task, but care must be taken not to enlarge the jet hole or bend it so
that the individual flame shoots out in an altered direction. This is also true of the ignitor underneath the burner
assembly itself. The ignitor is usually white in color with a metal tip protruding from the tip. This can be
cleaned to ensure an efficient spark.
Replacement of ignitors, switches, and spark modules can be much more difficult and require knowledge of how to
disassembly/reassembly of your stove/oven. If you wish to make the repair yourself, follow this link for some useful
