Question about Cooktops

2 Answers

Ticking sound of gas igniter continues after off.

On our GE gas cooktop the igniter continues to arc (click) even though all knobs are set to off. The condition is not limited to any one burner as the visible arc occurs at any one of the four burners. Removing the burner heads seems to stop the action, however when a head is replaced, the igniter arcing will happen again at that burner. Removing that head and replacing at another burner will cause the arcing to shift to that burner. I am not sure of the model number, but our owners manual lists the following JGP326; JGP930; JGP336

    When the burners are off, sometimes the igniters on two of the burners start to click and will not stop.

Middle section ticking sound with sparking as if trying to ignite even though knobs


Try using a pair of pliers and pushing down as you turn first counter clockwise as if you are turning the gas on then back clockwise till it won't turn anymore. If it's still trying to ignite see if its the oven or make sure that its the burner that's trying to ignite . I''m not a appliance person just a home maker so if it were me and none of those things work turn off the gas to the stove unplug the power to the stove and call the gas company or appliance center. One thing though some of those type of knobs are two parts like they have to be pressed down to turn on the gas. Or the have to be set in a certain position to engage the ignite switch. If you know a little about wiring look at the switch and check the wires. But make sure before you do anything that there is no gas on.!!!

My gas cooktop is contiuing a clicking sound to start the gas burner. it is not the color of the flame or that stuff. Just the starter keeps trying to start. the gas burner that is all. Blair


Hello Blair
Does the clicking or spark stop with all knobs in off position? If so it's probably the one burner valve for the one you're trying to light ,stuck in light mode,sending signal to module.Have that burner valve replaced.($50). (2) If clicking continues even though everything is off, it could be any one of the burner valves or your ignition module is messed up .You would have to pull wire off each burner valve one by one to find the offending valve . If not valves then suspect ignition module.
Easily fixed either way.



Feedback appreciated !

The igniter doesn't work at all. If I turn any knob to the ignite setting, you can hear the gas coming out but there is no ticking sound, and therefore no ignition. Can I fix this myself?

Igniter clicking when all four knobs in off position after water spill


It is possible that once the unit dries out the clicking will stop. If it doesn't, you will need to call someone to have the problem addressed. You will need a spark module and or an ignition switch(s).

Ticking sound from GE cooktop igniter


Under each gas control is a switch that will turn on the spark module when rotated to the light position. One or more of these switches has failed. Some models these switches are individually replaceable, others the switch is an assembly of all four.

A lot of questions on this site but very few answers. I have the same problem. After an overflow from a pot, the 2 front burners now won't light one rear one lights but won't stop sparking and the littlest one is fine.
