Your stove is a critically important part of your kitchen. You could handwash the dishes if your dishwasher is broken or put your food in a cooler while you wait for refrigerator repair, but what can you do when your stove doesn’t work? You may have to cobble together meals by using the oven and microwave, but frying food is out. When your stove burners won’t light, call Kimball Appliance Parts & Service.
How Stove Burners Work
Years ago, gas stoves had pilot lights that stayed on 24/7. When you turned the stove knob to release the gas, the pilot light would light the burner. Today’s stoves are safer and less wasteful because they use electronic ignition. When you turn your stove knob on, you’ll hear a clicking sound which is the electronic ignition making a spark to light the stove burner.
Troubleshooting Stove Burner
Sometimes, however, the stove clicks and clicks but doesn’t light. The main reason for this a that your burners are clogged with grease or food. You may be able to fix the problem by unbending a paper clip and inserting it into the tiny hole at the back of each burner. Give each a thorough routing and try lighting it again.
If this doesn’t help, it could be a problem with the igniter connection or a faulty switch. These issues are best handled by an experienced repair person, especially because it involves gas.
