Stovetop electric ignitor

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.

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

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.

SOURCE: stove top ignitors do not ignite but oven does.

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.

Stoves Q720 GRF DO main oven ignitor clicks / sparks continuously


Might be the PC board, or it might just be the switch behind the oven knob - try disconnecting the wire leading to that switch and see if the clicking stops. If it does, the switch is bad. If not, suspect the electronics.

Ignitor on stove won't stop clicking


Contact a professional to have the ignition diagnosed for replacement. Do not use the unit before then for safety reasons.

I've got an amana gas oven range and just had the ignitor replaced. Everything seemed to work great afterwards for about 2 hours but then the breaker tripped. I let the oven cool down before I reset it...


What you want to check or have checked is if the wiring on the new igniter was accidently not properly insulated and some or the wiring is bare and touching metel shorting the breaker each time the oven is turned on.

Hi there. there is no spark to ignite the gas in oven.


You will need to replace the spark module if you don't hear any clicking, or there is no spark present when trying to ignite the gas.

To test the Spark Module:
When properly operating, the spark module repeatedly produces a spark at the ignitor accompanied by a sharp snapping sound.
  1. Turn off gas and power supply to unit.
  2. Check wiring diagram to verify all terminals and wire connections are correct and tight with no cuts in the wiring.
  3. Prepare to measure voltage on spark module from terminal L to N.
  4. Turn power supply back on.
  5. Turn top burner to LITE position.
  6. If no voltage is present on the meter, this will indicate the electrical circuit is interrupted before the spark module
  7. If voltage is present, then check ignitor.
  8. If ignitors are ok; then replace spark module.
To access the Spark Module:
  1. Turn off electrical power and gas to the range.
  2. Disconnect gas and power from unit.
  3. Remove screws securing top surface burners.
  4. Remove surface burner and disconnect spark ignitor wire from surface burner.
  5. Raise and remove maintop from unit.
  6. Remove screws securing spark module bracket.
  7. Disconnect wire terminals from spark module.
  8. Replace and reassemble in reverse order.

I have a whirlpool gas stove, the bake or broil will not light.


Check to see if the electric ignitors are connected at the ignition module, located under the top surface panel. It is possible that the wire(s) that go to the oven ignitors has burned off or become disconnected from the main spark module,

It is also possible that the electrodes have failed and need to be replaced. These are the two (2) devices that produce the spark (and make the clicking sound) inside the oven compartment.

If those are OK, then check the thermostat, as it could be faulty and preventing the oven from functioning.

If you can smell gas when attempting to turn the oven (bake or broil) then the valves are good, if you don't smell any gas, the gas supply valves (one for each bake and broil tubes) need to be checked.

You might also try lighting the oven manually with a long match or grill lighter to rule out faulty gas supply valves or a faulty thermostat, which if you can manually light the oven, it would prove that the ignitors must have failed.

Here's the exploded line drawings for your stove along with the parts list, just click on each section to see the parts. You can order replacement parts from them as well.

Oven will not work - Hi/Lo broiler works fine


you have a bad bake ignitor. it is mounted to the long tube in the very back wall of the tube. usually held on by 2 1/4 inch bolts. usually if you replace the ignitor you have to cut the old one off and hard wire the new one in depending on what the new connection on you ignitor look like.

Kenmore oven 362.75275690 won't fire...has new ignitor


if you get 120 volts to the ignitor, then the ignitor will glow ,if not you have a bad ignitor. the valve should have continuity through the the 2 connections.. its poosible to have 110v to ground at ignitor, the only way you get 110v you need to check power across the 2 wires to the ignitor( not to ground), and this will not happen with a bad safety vavle
