GE range clicking

Hey Tish,
We are having the same issue with our stovetop.  How did you correct yours?  Did you have to hire someone?  We had to shut the power off to stop the clicking also, but don't want to pay to have someone come tell us that it just needs to dry out.  
Can you help?

    Tish,


    Thanks so much.  We let it dry out all day and everything seems to be working fine now.  Saved us $85 just for the service call.  I appreciate your quick response.  Have a nice Holiday!

Amanda,

We just let it dry out for 48 hours and then plugged it back in, it works fine now and we haven't had any problems with it since then (about a month ago). Hope this solves your problem too, it's a bummer to have to pay someone when you can just fix it yourself!

good luck, Tish

GE JS900 electric range stovetop works fine but no lights or clock on control panel so the oven cannot be turned on.


You will probably have to replace the main control board- the cooktop operates independently of the ovens, so your symptom is not uncommon... GE Range Stove Oven Oven Control Board WB27T10416

Maytag electric range model# MERH752CAS oven and stovetop stopped working.


Check the breakers. The range runs on 220v and one of the breakers may have tripped and it is running on 110v. Post back the results.

We spilled liquid into the gas burner by accident and it won't stop clicking. We can't find how or where to unplug it? GE PROFILE GAS STOVETOP RANGE


Won't stop clicking?
When?
Is it clicking constantly or only when you attempt to ignite a burner?
Normally the clicking can be traced to the electronic ignition that activates when you turn the burner on.

Regardless if you need to turn it off but do not have easy access to the back of the unit, you can always shut it off at the circuit breaker located in the breaker/fuse box.

Hope this helps but if not just let me know.

Older ge spacemaker range, temps wont boil water on stovetop, oven takes hours to hit 300 degrees could it be wiring or thermostat? says pn PLT135-3 owners manual [dont have] PLT059-2 model number...


Check your breakers to the oven. It sounds like one of the two of them have tripped and you are only getting 120 VAC.
Do you have a volt-ohm meter, and know how to use it?

GE gas stove top igniters won t stop clicking


I got this problem yesterday. My 6-month old GE range/stove top was being cleaned by a cleaning lady and suddenly, the igniters started clicking nonstop. I had to shut down the circuit breakers. I googled the problem, and it seemed clear that the "spark switches" got moisture on them. The best site which described this is: http://www.appliance411.com/archive/25012_ge_gas_cooktop_not_working_.shtml

Some people said you could dry them with a blow dryer, and others said you need to replace these switches (which is not too expensive, but takes some time/skill). I was hoping against this, so I tried something along those lines: I removed all the parts of the stovetop - the grill, the "cap", the metal funky piece, etc. until there was nothing but the surface of the stove and holes going down to the igniter area. Then, I took an electric fan and kept it pointed at the stovetop all night long. After about 10 hours, I turned the circuit breaker back on. No more clicking! And the burners all work! So, I think I essentially did the "hair dryer" solution, but did it more longterm without having to watch the clock to see if I did it long enough. Anyway, I don't normally post these things, but this discovery really helped me and I hope it helps someone else!

Viking 4 burner gas range


if you are not hearing the faintest sound of clicking / sparking you could have a bad spark module or even bad burner switches i doubt that all switches went bad at the same time but its possible unplug oven check wireing to switches and spark module if you pull your burner knob off thats the switch starring at you follow wires and check for any loose connections
