Kitchen Stove
My kitchen stove has spark ignitors that when you turn a burner on the spark ignites the burner. Now it does not work on any of the burners. ant ideas PLEASE:(

Do you see any sparks or does it still make that "click click click" sound...

No clicking and our sparks, I was wondering what converts the 110volt power supply to the ignitirs I want to not have to pull the stove out to look at the back

Is everything seated properly? I sometimes don't seat the cap properly when I clean my range.

The spark is usually created with a coil and capacitor that discharges a high voltage low amperage spark... if you're not hearing or seeing any spark, this may be the mechnism that is broken...

Is it plugged in? Maybe a tripped breaker? Any other electric/electronic components in this stove (i.e. clock, light, etc?) and are those working?

Check all of your ground points. You must have a good ground for the ignitors to work.
