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.
18.
Replace control panel and
tighten screws securely. Replace control
knobs.
19.
Push in and turn each cooktop
control knob from “LITE” to “LO” setting
quickly. The low flame should be a
minimum, steady blue flame.
If flame needs to be adjusted, turn
control knob to the “LO” setting and
remove control knob. Insert a small flatblade screwdriver into the valve stem.
Turn the valve screw to obtain the
smallest flame that will not go out when
the control of a cold burner is quickly
turned from “HI” to “LO”. Repeat for
other cooktop burners as needed.

21.
Check the oven burner for proper
flame. The flame should be 1/2" (1.3 cm)
long, with inner cone of bluish-green, and
outer mantle of dark blue, and should be
clean and soft in character. No yellow tips
(not enough air), blowing or lifting (too
much air) of flame should occur.
If oven flame needs adjusting:
a. Turn the oven off. Wait for the oven
burner to cool down.
