Samsung Stove Burner Won’t Light

Samsung Stove Burner Won’t Light. It always seems like a random occurrence that will happen at the worst possible time. Your stove burner won’t light, and it’s the one you need to cook tonight’s dinner.

With just a little elbow grease, you can get it cleaned and hopefully start using it again before too long.

The most likely culprit might be dirt or carbonized build-up on the burner, but until you give it a thorough cleaning, the problem won’t be resolved.

Whether it be grease build-up or food crumbs, one of the most common causes for a gas burner that has trouble igniting is debris blocking gas flow to the igniter.

The quick fix: Begin by removing the grate covering the troubled burner. Reinstall the burner, cover the grill and then try to ignite the burner once more.

The following article discusses some problems with Samsung stove burners that won’t light.

Issue With Spark Electrode

The spark electrode sends a spark to ignite the gas in the burner assembly.

If the spark electrode is defective or worn out, it might not produce a spark strong enough to hit the ignition point, and it will, therefore, not ignite the gas.

As a result, there will be a clicking sound when you turn on your heater, but it won’t light.

If the spark electrode shows signs of wear, replace it with a new one from your local hardware store.

Ignition Switch For Spark Ignition

If one of your burner’s ignition switches fails and is not sending the necessary voltage to its spark module, then you won’t be able to create that beautiful spark needed for the subsequent reaction.

But before you get your pitchfork ready, check and see if all of your other burners are creating their own spark properly and independently.

If they are creating a spark without any problem whatsoever, then it’s probably safe to look toward the burner in question’s ignition switch to find that it’s the faulty part causing all of these problems.

Problem With Spark Module

The spark modules provide power for each of the burners’ spark electrodes. If a burner experiences an extremely weak or inconsistent spark, it is likely due to a defective spark module.

Before replacing a suspected faulty module, test the electrode and wire to ensure they are in good condition.

If both of these components check out okay, then the problem is likely related to a faulty module and should be replaced as soon as possible to restore normal cooking times for all burners.

Loose Connection

While there are not too many intricate moving parts in a stovetop, there may be issues with loose connectors.

If the wires which connect the igniter to the control modules aren’t making solid connections, it won’t light.

First, kill power to the appliance by unplugging it from the wall. Remove the grate and burner cap from the problematic burner.

Remove the sealed burner base and look for loose connections or disconnected wires.

Secure any loose connections and, reconnect any disconnected wires, and reinstall the burner base, cap and grate. Restore power to the stove and test the connection.

Ignition Switch And Harness For Spark

When the burner is turned on, the spark ignition switch sends voltage to the spark module to produce a spark.

If the switch has been defective, it may not send voltage to the spark module, and so you will never get that desired spark.

It is likely that the faulty switch is cracked or in need of replacement if other burners are sparking properly while your burner isn’t.

Alternative methods have become increasingly popular as the years go by if you’d like to avoid this hassle and expense altogether.

For those not quite up-to-date on modern technology, this piece of advice should prove useful.
