Try unplugging unit from electrical suppl, leave unplug for the overnight, its possible that the electrode has gotten wet from watrer or grease and will dry out and stop sparking. give it a try before setting a service call.

Can't turn on the elements


With gas units there is a safety position on the knobs that stop children from turning them . Push the knob in and turn at the same time. The pizza will start sparking and the gas will light . For stronger flame turn the knob up. Remember gas cooks hotter than electricity so keep an eye on the setting for a while.

My GE Profile propane gas cook top was just installed yesterday. When I go to turn on one of the burners, all of the ignitors click. This can't possibly be normal. Anyone else have this issue?


Yes, thats okay when you turn the knob voltage gets sent to the spark module, Then the module sparks all the burner igniter. And frame ignition only happens on the single burner of the knob you turned that sends gas to the burner associated with that knob.


Please rate me a "4" if this information was useful.

Pilot on GE stove keeps popping non-stop


As far a "popping" do you mean the igniter on the cook top "clicking"? Did you clean the range and use too much water? If water gets into the igniter switches they will short out and constantly click. Also if the polarity at the electrical plug you can get what is called "ghost spark" so make sure that the polarity is correct at the electrical outlet. Each gas control valve has a switch that turns on the igniter when the knob is in a certain position and they are all wired in a sequence. One of those switches may be shorted out or have a loose wire(range dis-assembly required to inspect). Do you visually see a spark at the electrodes of the burners or do the burners ignite? If you cannot see the spark then there may be a grounding issue and possible loose wire.

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

Spark continuously on


If you have recently cleaned it, you may have gotten moisture behind the knobs and into the spark switches. Be very careful not to let moisture get behind knobs. Very dangerous. If this is the case, they may dry out themselves and stop sparking. If not you may need to replace a spark switch behind knob.

Starter keep trying to start when cook top is off.


If you have recently cleaned unit and got moisture behind knobs, this may stop when the spark switches dry out. If not you will need to replace spark switches behind the knobs.
