Check operation

Electronic ignition system.

Cooktop and oven burners use electronic ignitors in place of standing pilots. When a 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 ignitor heats to a bright orange and ignites the gas. No sparking occurs. The glow bar remains on while the burner operates.

Check operation of cooktop

17.

Push in and turn each surface unit control knob to “LITE” position. The flame should light within 4 seconds. Turn control knob to “HI” position after burner lights.

Check each cooktop burner for proper flame. The small inner cone should have a very distinct blue flame 1/4"

(6.4 mm) to 1/2" (1.3 cm) long.

The outer cone is not as distinct as the inner cone. If the flame is noisy or blowing, it is getting too much air. If the flame is soft and lazy, it is not getting enough air. Turn each surface burner control knob to

“OFF” position. Adjust air shutter if needed.
