Minecraft Dungeons are threatening spaces that are generated naturally underground and over the ground structure in some cases. Monsters in these places are hostile to players and will attack or even kill them if not being cautious enough.

In fact, the monsters are spawned from a Spawner. Spawners are the block that can generate monsters and they look like cages with a miniature monster inside. The mob that spins in the spawner shows which mob can spawn through it. While spawners can be found in diverse structures in every Minecraft world, here are all Minecraft Spawner locations and what they do.

What do Minecraft spawners do and where can you find them? Take a look below.

What Minecraft Spawners do

Spawners in Minecraft are cage-like blocks which have a little miniature mob and spawns the same mob periodically. It does not acquire low levels of light for monsters to spawn.

Each Spawner spawns monsters in a range of 16 blocks around it. It also attempts to generate 4 of the mob at a time. While the spawn cooldown varies from 10 to approximately 39 seconds, they activate and start spawning mobs when you approach.

On another hand, a player can deactivate the spawners by putting a Torch on their exposed sides or cover them with solid blocks to halt monsters from spawning.
