Troubleshooting Tips: How to Check Component and Gas Cylinder Capacity of a Gas Stove That Won’t Ignite

Surprisingly, running out of gas is not always the cause of a gas stove failing to ignite - an issue that is quite common.

Gas stoves are commonly found in many households. They operate by allowing gas to flow through pipes to the burner nozzles beneath the ignition plate. An electric spark or current then ignites the gas, creating consistent flames through the burner nozzles.

The gas stove not igniting can be caused by various reasons, not only because the gas is empty (illustration).

First, turn off the stove and close the gas valve. Then, remove the burner cap and soak it in a bowl of warm water and soap.

Next, carefully brush the surface of the gas stove using a brush to remove any loose debris. Once finished, wipe the stove clean with a damp cloth to ensure all dirt and residue is removed.

If your burner nozzles have small openings, use a cotton swab to deeply insert it and remove any food particles, oil, or other debris.

Other potential causes

If your gas stove still does not ignite after cleaning the burner nozzles and the ignition plate, you may want to consider checking other potential causes. These may include the gas valve being closed, the gas cylinder being empty, or the gas supply pipe being blocked.

The ignition system of the gas stove comprises a circuit board with a connecting wire, utilizing a battery or electric current to generate a flame with the gas. Thus, the battery is crucial to this system. If the gas stove fails to ignite, it may be due to a depleted battery. In such a scenario, you will need to replace the battery or ensure that the batteries are correctly inserted and that the battery contacts are clean.

Each gas stove typically has a battery compartment located at the bottom of the stove. To check the battery, locate and open the compartment. If the battery is inserted incorrectly or the contacts are loose, adjust them accordingly. If the battery contacts are dirty and causing interference with the battery exchange process, gently remove and clean them with a cloth. If the battery is depleted, replace it with a new one.

According to the Petrolimex website, the issue of trapped air preventing gas ignition is primarily caused by gas entering the pipe but not being able to escape, leading to blockage in the gas flow to the stove. This can result in either no ignition or slow ignition. When faced with this problem, Petrolimex recommends continuously igniting the gas 3-5 times to release all the trapped gas.
