Question about Ovens
Can I just cut wire to one stovetop elect. ignitor? Can't get to back of stove to disconnect. It will not stop clicking when oven is on. All ignitors stopped working some time ago, which was good because that clicking had been annoying me for a long time back then. Well, for some reason "their back". I figure I should shut of elect. before cutting it, but anything else? I don't want to just disconnect elect for good because I use the clock and timer. Just want to keep sanity click.....click....click....click.....ahhhhhhh! lol Can't afford to have any repairs.
Thanks for any help.
Cheaper , safer to just get in an accredited electrician to fix the problem
why have something that is just a clock

wait about three days to see if it stops this is typical when you clean one this way as water can get in the ignighter switches if not you have to replace the switches which are on the knob shaft behind the panel and come in sets of four and its not hard

ok jimmy not as bad as you think you access it through the oven cavity remove all the racks look for two screws on the bottom panel i believe they are at the front remove them then remove the bottom panel next you will see a lame spreader which is an angled plate remove it then you will see the burner bar at the back is the ignighter just match it with the new one

If you use a multimeter, you can test the gas valve where the white and yellow wires connect is where your terminals for bake on that valve are. If you have continuity there, then check to make sure that igniter is wired ok.

if the ignitor is not a brite red than it is not putting out the 3.5 amp's neaded to open valve.you can check the valve with a continueaty meter.remove the two wire's from the valve and check valve with meter,if valve check's good than ignitor is bad.

Electric gas igniters sometimes get stuck in one position causing a clicking sound. The clicking sound that you hear is the electric arc that is pulsing from the igniter conductor (wire) to ground (the gas burner). It receives power from the electrical outlet that the stove is plugged into.
Residue from food and sometimes cleaning products may be preventing the igniter from producing a spark (Arc) to the base of the burner. This is a common problem that occurs when the stove has been cleaned or food is allowed to build up. Make sure that the igniter and the burner base are clean and dry. This will help with proper operation. Oven cleaner and a small tooth brush may be used to accomplish this. Another problem with ignition may occur if you have too little (touching) or too much space between the igniter and the base of the burner; it will prevent the burner from igniting. You should only have a little more space than the thickness of a nickel between the burner base and the igniter. A good “blue” arc from the igniter to the burner base is optimal. If this doesn’t work, you may need to replace the electric igniter module. Good luck.
