Electronic Ignition System

Initial lighting and gas flame adjustments
Cooktop and oven burners use electronic igniters in place of
standing pilots. When the cooktop control knob is turned to the
"LITE" position, the system creates a spark to light the burner.
This sparking continues, as long as the control knob is turned to
Check Operation of Cooktop Burners
Push in and turn each control knob to the "LITE" position.
The flame should light within 4 seconds. The first time a burner is
lit it may take longer than 4 seconds to light because of air in the
gas line.
If burners do not light properly:
Turn cooktop control knob to the "OFF" position.
Check that the range is plugged in and the circuit breaker has
not tripped or the fuse has not blown.
Check that the gas shutoff valves are set to the "open"
Check that burner caps are properly positioned on burner
Repeat start-up. If a burner does not light at this point, contact
your dealer or authorized service company for assistance.
