Constant ignition clicking on Dacor cooktop

The ignition module on one of the burners is constantly sparking and clicking. The switch has the little blue light which is only supposed to come on when the switch is on, however it has been on constantly since the clicking started. So, the switch light is on and the ignition module is clicking and sparking constantly driving us insane! Any solutions? I figured the lights on the other switches come on when pressed down before the switch is clicked on, and I tried to pull the knob part up to no avail

    We tried that yesterday, but it did not seem to help. We have brought in two separate appliance repair people, and they have indicated different issues. However, at the end they both said they could fix it for about $300! The first one said it was the ignition module and switch that needed to be replaced.

    Thank you. Yes, the amount seems ridiculous for such an easy fix. I believe the price might include the parts, and I thought of ordering them myself, but the noise is driving us insane.

  • osiaora Nov 26, 2008

    Thanks! I am planning on doing that and I know exactly where the power source is. I still need to fix the problem, though, and I will attempt that this weekend. Any other ideas or thoughts would be appreciated. I might start by ordering the parts that I think I would need.

    Will definitely do that! Thank you and enjoy your Thanksgiving.

Try cutting the power to the stove for half an hour, see if that resets it

    it does sound like the ignition module that is faulty because of the constant clicking, i would go with the engineer that suggested this to you, but 300$ sounds a bit much for such a small component.
    Shop around for the best price

    best regards

    what you could do is disconnect the ignition system and that will stop the annoying clicking, follow the wiring from the igniter button tho the power sorce and disconnect from there, you will have to light the stove with a lighter or matches though.

    kind regards

    take the ingnition switch out and have a look to see if it is stuck on, spray contact spray on it like WD-40 for example, connect it back up to the power sorce and see if its still stuck

Dacor cooktop igniter clicks but burner does not ignite. This is true for all burners. after repeated attempts the burners will start - What can I try?

Take a hairpin or a toothpick and clean the hole near the igniter so that the maximum amount of gas can flow to the spark is what I would try.

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...

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.
