      It doesn’t work at all
      No power
      Make sure there’s power getting to your range, oven or cook top. Check for a tripped circuit breaker or a blown fuse. Check the wall socket for power with a voltmeter or by plugging something else in.
      Top burner doesn’t work
      A lot of times the problem is with a dirty or a clogged burner. Make sure the burner is clean.

    If you have a pilotless model, it uses a spark igniter to ignite the gas, which works in a combination with a spark switch (located on the burner gas valve) and a spark module. Because it is not simple to test these parts and find out which one is defective, we recommend to contact a professional appliance technician.

    It doesn’t bake
    Bake igniter
    When the bake igniter becomes weak or burns out, your oven would not bake. The bake igniter is usually mounted on the oven burner. It’s about 1 inch by 4-8 inches (depending on the model), and comes in round or flat styles. If you don’t see the igniter glow at all, it’s probably burned out. Replace the igniter if found defective. Note: one of the exceptions could be that your oven is set to automatic mode instead of manual. If this is the case, set your oven to manual mode and check again.

    If the bake igniter glows red and not bright yellow or white, it is probably because it is too weak. When this happens, the safety valve would not let the gas out into the oven burner. A weak igniter must be replaced.

  • A faulty igniter is probably the most common cause, however there are others:

    — defective thermostat
    — defective selector switch
    — defective gas safety valve
