Question

have a problem with our whirlpool gas cooking range. gas burners suddenly stopped igniting. they are just 2 year old and in good condition. just wondering, why I don't see any spark coming when I turn the control to "lite".

Hi:sucharitha

Hello and welcome to the Do It Yourself Web Site and my Gas Appliances forum.

Most likely either the spark ignition fuse burned out or the module is dead.

The fuse, if there is one since some spark ignitions do not come with one, will be under the cover with the spark module.

The fuse and the sparker module assembly will be under the stoves top cover beneath the top burners.

If the condition only effects one burner, the sparker or the switch going to it may be defective.

Be sure to disconnect the electrical power prior to attempting to make any repairs or locate the parts.

Good Luck,
