Here are some of the most common stove problems that our technicians often deal with:

  • Gas stove burner won’t light
  • Stove heating element is not working
  • Stove surface element won’t turn off

Gas stove burner won’t light

Here are some of the most probable causes:

  • Defective spark module

When a control knob is turned to the On position, the spark modules provide voltage to the spark electrodes and the burners are lit up. If the burner produces a weak spark, or if the burner sparks intermittently, the spark module is defective and should be replaced.

  • Defective spark ignition switch

The igniter switch is an electrical switch, which sends voltage to the spark module to produce a spark. If the burners do not spark when you turn the burner control knob to the On position,  the burner igniter switch should be replaced.

  • Worn out spark electrode

The spark electrode (also called a surface burner igniter) is an insulated electrode which sends a spark to light a surface gas burner. If the spark electrode is worn out, it might not produce a spark, or the spark might be too weak to ignite the gas. Replace the spark electrode if it fails to spark.

Stove heating element is not working

Here are some of the most probable causes:

  • Defective surface element switch

The surface element switch is used to turn on/off  the heating elements on an electric cooktop. When its contacts fail, the switch will not turn the surface burner on/off and will not control the heat level of the burner.

  • Faulty surface element board

Some stoves have relays that regulate the power supply to the surface elements. If more than two burners fail at the same time, it means the surface element board is defective and should be replaced.

  • Damaged coil surface element

The coil surface element is controlled by a surface element switch and provides the heat for the cooktop.  If the coil element won’t heat, it should be replaced.

Electric stove surface element won’t turn off

Here are some of the most probable causes:

  • Defective surface element switch

Each surface element is controlled by its own switch. When the element reaches the designated temperature, the switch shuts off the voltage. This cycle repeats throughout the cooking process to maintain the proper temperature. However, the electrical contacts inside the switch can sometimes fuse together, causing the switch to send continuous voltage to the surface element.

  • Damaged surface element

Electric stoves have two common styles of surface elements: a conventional coil and a smooth top radiant coil. When the selector knob is turned to a heat setting, the switch allows voltage to travel to the element, closing the circuit and causing the element to heat. If the element is shorted out, it may prevent the elements switch from shutting off the voltage.
