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 until the control knob is turned to the
desired setting.
When the oven control is turned to the desired setting, a hot
surface igniter heats to a bright orange and ignites the gas. No
sparking occurs. The glow bar remains on while the burner
operates.
