Keep making clicking sound

We just moved in to this house two months ago, the previous owner just remodeled the whole house a year ago and never lived in. So, the cooktop is brand new. I have used it for two months and it started to make the clicking sound after I made lunch today. I did see the sparking which never stops. I was so scared, so I disconnect the outlet and it stopped. But once I connect the outlet, the sparking and sound started again. I called Frigidaire customer support which doesn't help at all, my warranty is already expired. is there anyway to fix this? Or Do I really pay for the technician to come in?
Thanks

    I am sorry, I need to add one more thing. There are only two elements on the left side making the sound. The other three are fine.

SOURCE: issues with frigidaire gas range

Return it. You purchased a "usable" gas range. whether it was on clearance or not is immaterial unless you purchased the unit as a non-working unit. If the personnel in the appliance dept. are not willing to exchange the unit, ask to speak to the manager (store Manager, not appliance dept manager). Explain to the manager that you spent your money for a usable range and the range you received is not usable. If the manager is unwilling to exchange the unit, ask him for his full name and the number to the corporate office of Lowe's. Remember, the unit was already exchanged once, so the story they will try to give you is that they only authorize repairs for non-working units is a lie or you would not have been able to purchase the unit you have. If you cannot get a new unit, do call the corporate office with the name of the store manager, explain you were sold a piece of junk that the store knew had problems and that they informed you were corrected. The problems were not corrected and you would have never purchased the range knowing the problems still existed. stand firm, you will get a new range to replace the one you have

Thank you for accepting my bid. The ignitor switches are the problem. This usually happens when they get wet after cleaning the cooktop. Most of the time they dry out and will work a few days after. If they continue not to work properly they will need to be replaced. The switches just clip over the gas valves and are not hard to change. If you do need to get the part numbers for the switches I will need model number. Thanks again if you have any more questions let me know

SOURCE: I have a frigidaire ceramic cooktop. It started

Either there's ashort in the stove top or the wiring going to the appliance. Sorry but I would have to see it to see exactly how to fix the problem. the top needs to be removed and inspect the wiring to it. Test the top with a voltmeter forshorts.

SOURCE: Have a brand new Frigidaire gas cooktop

Hello,

Yes, the ones not being used are supposed to shut off.

It's not shutting off maybe because you did not reduce the knob that controls the gas temperature of the cook-top.

There is still gas pressure coming out that's why they are on. Reduce it by reducing the control knob.

You can check the manual to learn how to reduce the knob.

Good luck.

Maytag electric cooktop popping breaker.


The problem is most likely in the element in one of the coils, if they are the tube type and look like pencil thick heating elements, they can develope a short circuit inside them. The actual heating wire is encased with ceramic filler and then put in that tube. The heating wire moves when it gets hot and can work its way to the case and cause a short. Unhook the power from the whole unit and use the meter to check the rersistance of the coils between the heating element and the case

I have a small crack on the corner of my Jenn-Air when a pot fell out of my hands and cut a small piece out over a year ago. It is starting to move a little and I was wondering if there is anyway to seal...


Sorry to hear your cook top is cracked. Unfortunately it cannot be properly sealed like a car window. Here is your part#74010843. This is a pretty pricey part and I suggest you use a professional on this repair who will warranty their work in case the glass is cracked again. Furthermore, there are a lot of pieces to take apart and fit back in.
Side note* Be sure to check you owners manual sometimes you can get factory service repaired covered more than just the first year. If the cooktop glass had a bubble or imperfection that could have caused your crack to begin with.
I wish you the very best of luck.
Please rate me if this is helpful to you.

GE gas stove top igniters won't stop clicking


My wife just called me with the same problem - all 4 starters are clicking repeatedly - which started while the range was being cleaned.
From a Google search, this is what I found. Don't know if it will solve our issues, though wanted to share as it sounds like we may all be suffering from dirty starters (electrodes).
My surface burners keep "clicking" even after the burner is lit. There are a few things to check for.




And, to check the model number, look at the various places pointed to in the upper left of this diagram. http://www.applianceaid.com/newpics/range-model2.JPG

Profile gas on glass cooktop


Hello mkerfoot, I know the feeling. The same complaint I hear about on SS. I just sink type dish washing detergent to clean the grease off and a paper towel with vinegar water solution. For heavy staining on the burner area, apply the dw detergent full strenght and let it sit to loosen the debre. Hope this helps.

The problem is the pot(s) is too far from the heat. Jenn-air needs to make a burner cover that is closer to the burner for boiling water...

Wrong ignitor starts when burner is turned on.


Sounds like you have a bad ignitor on that burner.

Burner fails to ignite


I have this cooktop and it is hands-down the worst. That clicking sound is the spark missing the mark because of a crack or chip in the ceramic igniter. Damage is caused by the ceramic heating too quickly. Especially when the house is cooler in winter, or in air conditioning. I had a Jenn Air repair guy in to replace them before the warranty ran out and he said this happens with every single one of these models with the ceramic igniter. Also, one of the knobs on the front by the medium burner got so hot it melted. He gave us a new one. He had a whole box of them in his truck! He told us the design was inferior and that Jenn Air uses a different igniter for higher end models because of this problem, but won't re-engineer the lower end units because it's cost prohibitive. Even with the repairs they cover for the first year, they recoup in charging for service the second year, than profit on the repair and/or replacement charges for the parts every year after that. All the parts sold are OEM--no after markets, so, at roughly $27 a pop for each igniter, they make out pretty good. Oh, and the burner knob is melted again. What a bunch of scamsters. I will never give them my money again and am shopping for a new cooktop. I left a good review at bizrate for this cooktop.
