Question about KitchenAid 30 in. KGCS105GSS Gas Cooktop

1 Answer

The gas burners have to be started by a match

The clicking sound no longer happens. We know it's probably the spark module assembly, but do not know how to remove it. Do you know of a repair manual we can download?

Try KitchenAid.com Online. First, insure the spark assemblys are clean. This is a major problem.

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 !

I can't get the electric ignition to stop clicking. I'm not sure this is the right model, but it looked the closest to my cooktop


Hi- most likely the spark module is bad. Sometimes a burner swith gets stuck as well. Unplug the unit, the plug should be inside the cabinet. Take off the knobs and see if you see any obstructions and see if the knob posts move freely in and out (push to turn). Probably need to get a Tech out to look at it. If it is clicking even when the burners are off you can just leave it unplugged and light with a match to use it. If it is only clicking when you have the burners on check to be sure all the burner bases and caps are assembled correctly and seated, sometimes the electrode will continue to click if the burners are assembled wrong or are wet. Hope this helps a little. Good Luck.

All 4 electrodes spark when only one is turned on


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.

One of the burners on my Dacor 4 burner gas cooktop no longer ignites automatically, it just continues to spark, but it will light with a match. Is this something I can fix myself, and if so, what should I...

GE Profile nat gas cooktop, Model No JGP636BEV3BB won't ignite


If you can hear the clicking sound but are not getting a spark then there is probably a short in the ignition system. Check for any loose wires on the ignition system. Make sure all the wires are properly seated. Make sure the spark module is properly grounded. As far as testing the spark module it should be generating a spark of course. The problem is that the average voltage for the spark module is 15,000 VDC so actual testing of that voltage can be difficult. Is the spark erratic?(should spark evenly). An erratic spark timing is a sign of a bad spark module. Is the spark slow? Check the polarity of the electrical plug. If it is clicking evenly then it is probably arcing somewhere inside the cooktop and you just need to find out where. Also be aware that if you get water into the cooktop that can cause possible grounding of the spark module or ignition system.

We have a thermador 5 burner gas range top and the pilot light seems to have gone out. The burners don't go on but we smell gas. How do we re-light it?


Most gas range tops no longer have pilot lights but use an electronic ignition (sparker) to light the burner. Normally when you turn the burner on you should here a snapping or sparking sound, at which point the burner should ignite. Here is a link to the user manual for 36" - 5 burner Thermador rangetop...maybe this will help: http://dl.owneriq.net/a/ac64ae7b-1ed3-44a3-9235-e4dbd8fe4628.pdf

By the way, in the short term you could always use a match to light the burner. JUST BE VERY CAREFUL THE YOU HAVE THE MATCH LIT AND OVER THE DESIRED BURNER BEFORE YOU TURN KNOB TO START THE BURNER!!!!

Ignitors keep making ticking sound, all burners turned off, won't go in lock position, and one burner will not ignite gas despite constant ticking


Probably a spillage or boil over has clogged the burner and some of the liquid has dampened the shank switch mounted on the burner post. Get a shop vac and clean the burner. Wait a day or 2 and see if the switch stops. OR disable the ticky ticky by removing the bottom drawer and looking for the spark module. Remove one of the hot wires and tape it up. Light the burners like granny does with a match. LOL

GE gas stove top igniters won't stop clicking


My wife just called me with the same problem - all 4 starters are clicking repeatedly - which started while the range was being cleaned.
From a Google search, this is what I found. Don't know if it will solve our issues, though wanted to share as it sounds like we may all be suffering from dirty starters (electrodes).
My surface burners keep "clicking" even after the burner is lit. There are a few things to check for.




And, to check the model number, look at the various places pointed to in the upper left of this diagram. http://www.applianceaid.com/newpics/range-model2.JPG

Cooktop's electronic igniter started clicking all by itself


Check to make sure your burner caps are aligned. I had this problem, and it turned out one of my burner caps was slightly askew. Putting it level fixed the problem.
