I purchased a gas...

I purchased a gas range in Feb. of 2016. I had surgery right after we purchased it, so when my husband hooked it up he didn't check the broiler. I had not needed it until a few months back and it wouldn't work. You can hear it clicking like its trying to fire but it want. What do you think the problem is?

Contractor's Assistant: I'll do all I can to help. How long have you been dealing with this?

A few months.

Contractor's Assistant: Do you plan on doing the work yourself?

I hope we can. The dealer we bought it from is a little over a hour away and by the time I found this out the warranty is out.

you can hear it clicking
Customer reply replied 9 months ago
Sometimes you can also smell the gas.

ok with the oven door and the unit set for broil . look thru the front door window and tell me if the igniter is sparking right on the burner itself or is if sparking elsewhere.

We can hear it but can't see it.

ok it should be sparking right at the tip of the igniter to the burner body.

If it is not doing that you may have a bad wire going to the igniter that is pinched or cut allowing the spark signal to spark elsewhere and of course that is why it is not lighting the broil burner.

Can you pull the range out away from the wall and remove the large lower and smaller upper panel .

And then try to darken the room as much as possible and then turn the broil on and watch to see if you can see it sparking on the back side of the range.

The spark module is mounted on the console are in the top right corner looking at the range from the rear with both inspection covers off .

And the igniter wire travels from there down to the back of the oven cavity.

We pulled it out and took the back off. The igniter had not been hooked up. I don't know if this should have been done at the factory or if we should have done it when we put it in. Thank you so much for your help. I hope you have a great Thanksgiving and a very very Merry Christmas. Thanks.

it should have been done at the factory.

if you have now hooked it up lets turn the broil on and see if it now will light the broil burner
