Oven cooktop push button igniter

No spark, battery under the push button checks good. Lifted range top to see if wires were connected , 1 wire to each burner good. There is an orange wire that goes down into or behind the oven area. Anyone know why the different color ? New, hasn't worked from day 1.

I would replace the battery just to be safe. If still nothing try moving one of the spark probes closer to the burner. If too far away, it can not draw a spark.

Thanks, I'll give it a try but shouldn't I be able to see a spark.

If the interior is dark you should see a small spark. If the probe is too far from the metal burner, it may not spark.

Yes you should see a spark. I would say 1/8 inch would be a good gap and probably as close as you want it. If no spark at 1/8 inch then there is another issue.

Could it be that your oven just doesn’t have a spark? Mine didn’t- I had to hold the knob and use a lighter.

Stove top had one; oven just didn’t.

If it is the oven you are talking about then I am sure you have to light the pilot light - it does not have an igniter. The stovetop should light with the igniter.

I pulled out the igniter button again today. It worked when held in hand. I must have moved something. Found a sloppy contact on back right sparker.
