initial lighting
Surface burners use electronic ignitors in
place of standing pilots. When the
cooktop control knob is pushed in and
turned to the "LITE" position, the system
creates a spark to light the burner. This
sparking continues until the control knob
is turned to the desired setting.
The grille and griddle burner use an
ignitor glow bar that is either on or off in
place of standing pilots. When the glow
bar is hot, it sends a signal back to the
safety valve which opens allowing gas
to flow.
Push in and turn the surface
burners and grille control knobs to "LITE"
position. For griddles, turn the griddle
control knob to a temperature degree
mark (300F° recommended). The surface
burner flame should light within 4
seconds and the grille and griddle flame
in 30-40 seconds.
NOTE: The griddle flame cannot be seen,
but you should hear it ignite and feel heat
from the griddle.
After lighting the burners, turn the control
knobs to "OFF".
If burners do not light properly, turn
control knob to the "OFF" position. Check
that burner cap is in the proper position.

has not blown. Check that the shutoff
