    I have a GE cooktop and one of the burners won't light. Model jgp940. The ignitor sparks but the gas won't catch. I had a repair service over and they replaced the ignitor (GE part #WB13T10010). This did not solve the problem. Out of 10 tries, the burner might catch once.

Piezo igniter won't quit


Possible stuck burner switch or failed spark module. Unplug unit. Remove wires from burner switches at module and plug back in. If it starts sparking, replace module. If it stops, then replace switch harness.

When I try to use my gas cooktop, it makes a loud "pop" sound and has a big electrical spark that smells like fireworks then it flips the breaker.. Any ideas??


The electrical wiring under the burners has been short
probably from liquids leaks during cooking.


That is why you had the spark. The only electrical part you
have to your coo top is the electric ignite nothing else. So you should remove
all burners' assemblies from the top so to reach the bottom part where the gas
pipes are located and the ignite part no 318 in drawing Spark module
Part Number:
AP3778816made by GE.



So first you can use a hair
dryer do try it out and be sure there is not and liquid in it and put
electrical plug again to test it. If you still have the same problem, replace
the Spark module with a new one.

Have a four burner gas GE Profile cooktop. How do


The igniter module is working fine. One of the switches (which are on each valve shaft) is stuck or shorted out. Pull a wire off each one at a time to determine which one is bad. Careful! 120 volts to each wire. Also, this can happen after you spill water into the valve area, if that sounds right, let it dry out.

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.

GE Profile Gas cooktop stove- buzzer won't stop


Unfortunately you have to wait until it dries out. I have tried hairdryer before but most of the time I have had to leave it off overnight. FYI if you dont shut off at the circuit breaker and the sparking continues it will short out and definitely get worse
