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
"LITE."
When the oven control is turned to the desired setting, sparking
occurs and ignites the gas.
Check Operation of Cooktop Burners
Standard Surface 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 that 4 seconds to light because of air in the
gas line.

not tripped or the household fuse has not blown.

control knobs to "Off" and contact your dealer or authorized
service company for assistance.
