There is a good chance that your burner and or pilot assembley might need cleaning. If that doesnt work look into thermocouples or flame sensors
1. I have a question about my gas stove?
Yes, you can light it with a match each time. And yes, most often the igniter is dirty or even the cap where it strikes might be put on wrong preventing ignition. But it can also be bad, like a cracked insulation on the ignitor and it is not sparking in the right place. You hear it click because when you turn on the switch it sparks all four burners. But the igniter is wired in to two circuits with two burners on each one. Since two burners are not working obviously one side of the ignition is not working. Either the module is bad or it is grounding out someplace. Good Luck.
2. Can anyone advise me about my gas stove?
one, there's a little cover on the burner stem that allows outside air to enter...sometimes it's open too much....also, the hole to the burner might be plugged just enough to not allow full gas flow....hope this helps....good luck
3. How do you turn on a gas stove?
It requires practice and a delicate touch. Even though I have had my gas cooktop for 5 years one of the 4 burners is touchy and I often can not get the timing right to catch the electric spark with it. What I did do was buy one of the metal charcoal grill igniter wands (with a trigger) and I keep it in the kitchen drawer. When I want to ignite that burner I just use the igniter to light the gas as I turn it on. No fuss, no muss. And I do not fill the kitchen with gas trying to get the electrostatic spark in the cooktop to fire
4. Why do natural gas water heaters, furnaces, fireplaces have to be vented and a natural gas stove doesn't?
An Excellent question! Mostly because heaters, furnaces and fireplaces run more hours and are much larger burners than a kitchen stove is. You probably run your stove for what? 2 hours a day tops? It is only little 10,000btu burners for the stovetop and a 15-25,000btu for the oven. That's pretty small. Yes there are products of combustion from that, but not a lot. A furnace on the other hand will run 8 hours or more out of a day in heating season. It is more on the tune of 70,000 btu's or more. A lot more nasty gases coming from that, that you do not want to be breathing! Any home with any fuel burning appliance or attached garage, should have a carbon monoxide detector on each floor.
5. Why does food taste better when cooked on gas stove than electric stove?
Gas because it gets a lot hotter, or rather more direct heat. This makes more Maillard, or caramalization, which adds a great depth of flavor. Wood because it has a slight smokey flavor that is impossible to get anywhere else. Its a very dry heat which is just amazing.
6. why does the fire turn green on my gas stove?
What kind of gas are you using? Sounds like it has some sulfur in it
7. Is a range hood necessary for a gas stove?
NO! A vent/hood is not necessary for a gas stove. My gas stove is in the middle of my kitchen and I have no hood. There are no poisonous fumes from my stove in the home and there are also no oil or other cooking stains on the ceiling above my stove. I've lived here for over 10 years and the stove was installed a few years before I moved in
8. Handyman help!!!! How do you hook up a gas stove?
You need a LICENCE to hook up a gas stove - in any country! You can be charged with tampering with gas company equipment not to mention blowing up the whole damn neighbourhood. Use your head and call a gas fitter and stop being such a numpty!!
9. Why is my gas stove burning yellow flame on all the burners, creating soot on the pots? Itu2019s not due to air shutter adjustment, regulator, hose or low gas. The gas type and burners havenu2019t changed and they used to work fine.
have a gas fitter check your equipment now! the yellow flame indicates incomplete combustion, and there could be carbon monoxide (a deadly gas) being produced. always have a carbon monoxide alarm located near gas consuming appliances
