The indicator light for the stovetop remains on despite all the knobs for each element in the off position. One of the elements is still getting power and heating slightly despite all controls in the

Hello friend, thanks for your post!

I see that the indicator for your cooktop continues to remain on for your Frigidaire range. It sounds like it could be a potential issue with your switches or control panel. I would recommend a reset on your range which you can do by flipping the household circuit breaker off for ten minutes. I hope this is helpful. -Matt

Good Day,<br /><br />Have you ever had that problem with your Gas Hob, Stove or Cooktop where you hear a clicking the whole time, coming from <span style="font-weight: bold;">the ignition switches?</span> Well, then today I will show you how to <span style="font-weight: bold;">resolve the problem.</span><br /><br />Why does this happen? <span style="font-weight: bold;">Moisture</span> on the ignition switches... Be it because of you cleaning it obsessively or, because you might have had a small water spillage - the causes could be quite a few things <span style="font-weight: bold;">related to water.</span><br /><br />Now for the solution (Please note: I will be using a General Electric Stove & Hotpoint Hob as demonstration, but this solution should work for <span style="font-weight: bold;">most ranges - if not all</span>)<br /><br /><span style="font-weight: bold;">Step 1 (Safety first)</span><br /><br />Turn the machine off, switch it off at the mains if it is powered by it, and if powered by another source - Turn this off!<br /><br /><span style="font-weight: bold;">Step 2</span><br /><br />Remove the knobs of the Hob/Stove:<br /> <br /><img src="jedemeyer1_31.JPG" /><br /><br />If they do not come out, try to pull them as far out as possible, without breaking them. If there is a seal beneath them, then take it off as well - in the case if the knob does not come off, leave them be... If any grime or fat deposits are present, remove them with a damp cloth and some toothpicks.<br /><br /><span style="font-weight: bold;">Step 3</span><br /><br />Get a hairdryer, or fan.<br /><br /><span style="font-weight: bold;">If using the hairdryer:</span> <span style="font-style: italic;">Dry each knob area for 3 to 5 minutes for each knob respectively.</span><br /><br /><span style="font-weight: bold;">If using a fan:</span> <span style="font-style: italic;">Put the fan facing all the knobs, and leave it there for 30 minutes.</span><br /><br style="font-weight: bold;" /><span style="font-weight: bold;">Step 4</span><br /><br />Leave the oven for <span style="font-style: italic;">about 20 minutes</span>, and then re-attach the knobs and seals and re-connect it to power.<br /><br />TEST, and viola! The problem is fixed.<br /><br />I have attached a video to this Tip, that shows a complete yet simple solution to this problem (Kindly provided by General Electric):<br /><br /><utube src="-vG9QQDiFCw"><br /><br />Now you can use your Hob/Cooktop/Stove with no more annoying clicking sounds.<br /><br />I hope this Tip has helped you, if it did - Please rate it.<br /><br />Kind Regards<br /><br />JEDEMEYER1<br />

3 of 4 knobs do not compress to turn on gas

You must replace those controls. Cleaning or loosening them up would be temporary at best and the next time they stick it could be in the open position. Safety first...Eric

Whirlpool Flat cooktop burner not heating up

Try cleaning the knobs. I did the same thing you did (turning the circuit breaker off but that did not solve the problem.

My wife just tried turning the knobs and that seemed to work. It appears that one of the knobs may have been so sticky that the though it's in the OFF position it thinks it's still ON.
