Constant sparking (when the unit is off) means the spark module has failed or a switch may be stuck. In proper operation, the module senses a grounding condition (which is what burning gas does to the high voltage) at the burner and shuts the ignition system off.

If the unit is constantly sparking while the flame is on (which you didn't mention but is the most common complaint), you either have a miswire on the module or the ignitors and/or burner bases are too dirty to properly ground out (and therefore shut off) the circuit when lit. Also make sure the burner bases are tightly attached to the top. Replacement of the carbonized parts is the only solution - cleaning is a B.S. fix and not recommended as a final repair. You can try touching things up with a brass brush to hold a customer over in an emergency, but it seldom lasts very long.

Whenever i light the gas top wolf range, the ignighters on other burners keep firing


Hello,

The electrode (spark plug) for that burner is not telling the spark module the burner is lit and go ahead and turn off the spark. That electrode and the wiring on it need to be replaced,from that burner back to the spark module.


I hope this helps you to repair the problem with you stove,
Gene

Ignitor will not stop clicking


Marguerita , In addition to turning off the gas valve going to the stove, FIRST, unplug the stove from the electric outlet, so the high voltage ignitor (spark) will not be constantly operating and elminate the possibility of getting a serious jolt/shock.

Just follow Jumptrout's well described troubleshooting and repair instructions, but please uplug the range first and go one wire at a time, cleaning them and retrying them, or better yet, just clean them all; removing them one at a time, cleaning one, and putting it back in place until you've cleaned and reconnected them all.

Hope you find this Very Helpful and best regards!

Installed stove, no flames on burners?


It may still have air in the system, turn on one burner on and allow the gas to flow with a lighter in the path of the gas see if the gas lights of at least explodes I mean until it goes Poof, once it does that if it does not light then pull the top off the stove and adjust the vents on the pipes to focus the flames and how much air is blended in with the gas, also turn the burner so that the holes are half way open, I am not sue about your stove but most have an adjustment by turning the burner 1/4 of a turn to change the flame characteristics. if this does not help post here and I will see what else I can find out on your stove. I need the modle of the stove and the regulator number where the gas hooks up.

Ge spectra gas stove top not lighting


If your top burners are not lighting or will not work, it is possible that the burners have become dirty or wet. Please follow the troubleshooting directions below before calling service:
  1. Turn you burner to the Lite position:

    If you hear clicking or sparking, go to Step 2.

    If you do not, check your circuit breakers. If the circuit breaker is ok, we recommend that you schedule service by calling 1-800-432-2737 or schedule service online.

  2. Clean the burner and electrode:

    First remove the burner grate, cap, and head. Use a needle or paper clip to poke through the holes on the burner head. Re-assemble and try the burner.

    Remove the burner grate, cap, and head. Even if it looks clean, wipe the tip of the electrode with a clean, dry paper towel and PRESS IT DOWN. Re-assemble and try the burner, again.

    Check to see if the burner works, If not, then go to Step 3.

  3. Re-assemble - Make sure that each burner top matches its burner bottom. The burner top will lay flat if put on correctly.

    Check to see if the burner works, If not, then go to Step 4.

  4. The spark igniter is operating properly, but the burner is still not lighting. At this point, we would recommend that you schedule service by calling 1-800-432-2737 or schedule service online.
