If your Bertazzoni range won’t stay lit, it may be due to dirty or faulty components, such as the igniter or thermocouple. Whether you’re having issues with your Bertazzoni range not staying lit or it clicks but doesn’t light, we have steps to resolve the problem before you decide to call a Bertazzoni repair expert.
Troubleshooting a Bertazzoni Range That Won’t Stay Lit
One of the most common issues with Bertazzoni ranges is that the flame won’t stay lit. This can be due to various causes, so it’s important to troubleshoot and identify the source of the problem. Some possible causes include the following:
– Dirty igniter electrode or spark module
– Faulty thermocouple
– Loose connections
Why Does the Flame in My Oven Keep Going Out?
If the flame in your gas Bertazzoni range won’t stay lit, ensure you are following the correct procedure to light it.
Step 1. Open the oven door completely and press the thermostat knob in the OFF position and hold for two seconds.
Step 2. After 2 seconds, release the knob and rotate it to your desired cooking function. Once the knob is released, the spark plugs will click for 10 seconds, and then the gas will flow for another 10 seconds. The oven should light after this.
Step 3. Once the clicking stops, check that the bake or broiler burner stays on, and leave the door open for another 20-25 seconds, then close the door.
Step 4. Finally, rotate the knob to the desired temperature for the bake burner.
Dirty Electrode and/or Thermocouple
If your Bertazzoni won’t stay lit or is clicking but not lighting, there may be a problem with the igniter electrode or the spark module. Check these components for any signs of dirt, damage, or corrosion. Inspect all wiring harnesses for any loose connections or broken wires. Before performing maintenance on your oven, turn off the gas or unplug the electricity to ensure your safety.
To clean and inspect the electrode and thermocouple, remove the oven racks and set them aside. Then, locate the bottom plate and remove the two screws holding it in place. Once the bottom plate is off, you can clean the electrode with a small wire brush. Carbon deposits can sometimes build up on the electrode, which can cause issues with the oven lighting.
Clean the thermocouple with the wire brush as well. Make sure the thermocouple wire is securely connected to the brass thermocouple. A loose connection can cause problems with the oven lighting. Finally, clean the brass piece with the wire brush. If the issue is due to dirty components, this should help your Bertazzoni range function properly again. However, if you still experience issues with lighting it, one of the components may need to be replaced.
Why is My Bertazzoni Range Clicking But Not Lighting?
If your Bertazzoni range is clicking but not lighting, it could be due to a malfunctioning ignition system. The clicking sound is likely the spark igniter trying to light the gas burner, but if it’s not successful, the gas will continue to flow and build up, causing the clicking sound to continue. There could be a few different reasons for this issue. The spark igniter may be dirty or damaged and not produce a strong enough spark to ignite the gas. The gas supply could be obstructed, or there could be a problem with the gas valve. It’s also possible that the thermocouple, a safety device that shuts off the gas supply if the flame goes out, is not functioning properly and cutting off the gas before it can be ignited.
A thermocouple is a safety device that works by detecting any absence of a flame and immediately cutting off the supply of gas. The thermocouple must be heated up for several seconds when igniting the burner before releasing the knob. This prevents hazardous situations such as explosions or fires from occurring due to an excessive buildup of unburned fuel if a flame is no longer present.
If you still have issues with your Bertazzoni range not staying lit, it’s best to reach out to a Bertazzoni repair expert. They will be able to diagnose the problem and recommend the best course of action to get your range up and running again. Always exercise caution when working with gas appliances and follow the manufacturer’s instructions for lighting and maintaining your range.
