Question and Answers

Q:

What would cause one of the top burners to not spark?

A:

Even if the valve switch was bad the electrode should still spark when one of the other 3 valves are turned to the light position. When any one of the 4 burner valves is turned to the light position all 4 electrodes should be sparking. So with this said, if the electrode does not spark when one of the other burner valves are turned to light, it’s not a failed switch. It's likely to have a loose wire connection or a failed spark module. Now, if none of the electrodes spark when the one burner valve is turned to light, that could indicate a failed burner switch or a loose wire connection. Also, the electrode will not spark if the burner head or burner cap does not have a good ground.

I added the wiring diagram of the surface ignition circuit in the image below. You can see how the 4 burner switches are wired in a parallel circuit. When one is turned on all 4 electrodes will spark. I also added the instructions on how to raise the top to access the burner switches behind the burner valves.

I understand the logic, but the diagrams view WAY TOO SMALL to even read

Joey, how does one go about verifying it's the spark module or a cracked electrode? Also, you mention the burner head and cap might not have a good ground. My range is painted so how do the burner heads and caps get grounded on my range?

Thank you for your question on the range oven not working after the backward conversion to Natural gas.

If he broke the lever off on the pressure regulator you will need to change out the regulator because it is now in the off position and is not supplying gas to the bake and broil circuit.

The problem is that the gas pressure regulator for this range is no longer available, with no replacement part listed. The original part number was WB19K5020.

If you cannot open the valve on the broken lever on the regulator you may have to have him see if he can find one that will work or try to fix the one on the range.

I am sorry that this happened and if the part was available it would not be such a bad situation, but as it is with the part not available I do not know what else to tell to do but to have the gas company technician or a different service technician try to remedy the problem with the regulator.

Please let me know what has happened.

Sam A.

I have figured out the problem with gas not coming on. the valve does not rotate to open rather pulls out to open. the tab the gas rep broke off holds the valve open. the tab is now broken but the metal piece it pulls on is intact is there some way to replace this part?

Thank you for the update on the pressure switch oven valve. I cannot help you with the fix on this gas valve for liability reasons. You would have to figure out a way to get the pin pulled to the open position and a way to hold it there since the part is no longer available. I would ask the gas company that since their technician broke the part to find a way to either repair the valve or replace the valve or the range. Sam A.

i was lucky found a supplier with a broken regulator but was able to salvage the lever to replace the broken one. now i have to finish converting it back to nat gas from lp. i opened where the spring is on the front side there is a blue rod pressing on the spring. on the exterior of the regulator there is a red tab (looks like a button but pops right off if pulled) that is shorter that serves no purpose that i can figure out do i swap the red piece for the blue one to finish the conversion?

Thank you for the update and I am glad you were able to find a part to be able to open the valve and make it work. To covert it back to Natural gas, all you usually have to do is to flip the plunger over onto the spring. The conversion to LP is you remove the cap and turn the plunger over and put it back in. In the LP position it usually compresses the spring to hold the regulator open because you have the regulator on the LP fuel tank To convert it back to Nat. you would do the same thing but the spring will not be compressed. I cannot see which regulator style you have so I am going by the most common style conversion process. On some styles all you hade to do is turn the cap over. If you are not sure, could you send me a picture of your style of regulator since it is no longer available I do not have a parts image to look at. Sam A.

The procedure for removing the oven bottom is shown in the image below. I recommend that you shut off the house circuit breaker for the range (or unplug it if it is plugged into an outlet that you can reach). Shut off the gas supply. Carefully remove the oven bottom as shown in the image below. Clean any spills or residue on the underside of the bottom oven panel. Clean any spills or deposits in the area underneath the bottom panel.

Once you clean the area under the bottom panel, you can then replace that panel and run the self clean cycle. Be sure that you carefully follow all of the procedures shown in your owner's manual regarding that self clean cycle. Here is a link for your owner's manual in case you need it: Owner's Manual . NOTE: It may take a minute or two for this manual to download.

Make sure that you clean any excessive spills in the oven before starting the self clean cycle. Protect pets and birds from the fumes that may be emitted during this cycle. Ventilate the house as much as possible during the self clean cycle.

Since the gas company and a technician examined the range and did not detect any major problems, it should be safe to run the self clean cycle. Keep in mind that the self clean cycle will heat the oven to extremely high temperatures to burn any residue to a fine ash that can be wiped out of the oven. If you detect any problems during this self clean cycle, be prepared to shut off the electrical power, gas supply and take appropriate action. It is unlikely that you will have a problem but you should be prepared just in case.

I am not sure what is making your eyes burn when you start the oven. It could be residue as noted by the technician. Taking the above steps may eliminate this problem.

I hope that this information helps. If you need more assistance, reply with additional details and we will assist you further.
