Question about GE Profile JGSP44 Dual Fuel (Electric and Gas) Kitchen Range

1 Answer

Igniters don't ignite

My sister has had one of these for 3-4 years. A few weeks ago the right-front (max power) burner's igniter stopped clicking, and recently the other igniters have become intermittent. Do they just need to be cleaned, or do the igniter parts (the ceramic resistor and spark electrode) need to be replaced? Thanks DjB

Re: Igniters don't ignite

I would try cleaning them first. Generally, they should be cleaned periodically. If this does not work then check the igniter.

Jenn-Aire Model CVG4380 gas stove top. Why doesn't igniter work?


Under your knobs are burner switches, 3 of them are the same, so this will be a hit and miss on getting them but possible. Each burner should trigger the ignition system. This will be needed to be inspected to find out which one needs to be replace. If you get the right person to look over the unit they could tell you if it can be repaired. I worked on one about 3 years ago and it worked out fine. Good Luck and I hope this helped.

Constant clicking sound everything is working fine. How to get the noise to stop

Shut off the power to the range. It sounds like the igniters got wet. If the clicking sound is still there after you put the power back on, light all the burners to dry out the igniters.

I have 30" professional dual


Yes the spark module could be the problem. Their is one other possibility and that is if the insulation for the wire from the spark module to the electrode on burner has became bare the current flow to/through them is being grounded and either the power never makes it to the burner or once lit,its not completing the circuit back to the spark module to make it turn off

Hope this helps,if it does please give me a 4 thumbs up rating

My whirlpool range ss630per-1 burners will ignite except of front right which give no ignitor sound at all, but the Rear Right works fine. any solutions?

Each burner control knob has a built-in switch that controls the igniter. It appears the front right burner switch in the knob is possibly defective. They are replaceable but it requires dis-assembly of the range front. Are all the igniters in a sequence? Have you tried turning the front right burner on while another burner has the igniter on. This may let you ignite the burner automatically. When you have another burner igniter clicking try turning on that burner. If the range has rectification igniters that will not work.

Top burners often wont light if oven is already lit

Hello and welcome,
If your range has electronic igniters, then you seem to have one or more bad igniters on top of the range if you have a pilot range then you have a gas restriction or clogged orifice tube.
Even if they make the click noise while trying to light they may not get hot enough to draw the gas on a constant speed!

This will need to be diagnosed hands on at your location.
But this is the fault!

Thank you for using fixya.

Burners won't light

Hi there,

Sounds like an igniter problem. Sometimes the tips of the igniters burn and don't give out the spark to light the burners. Check for a spark from the igniter on the front burners. Also sometimes the igniters drop down a little - may just need re-positioning. Compare the front igniters with the back to see how they should spark. You may need to replace the front igniters. Hope this helps.

Stove burner igniter does not work.

Your problem is not the igniter itself, but the burner switch that controls the igniter. All the igniters get their power from one spark module that is mounted somewhere in back of the oven. That's why you are able to get all the igniters to spark with only one burner control turned on. This is normal. That is also why you are able to light the burner in question buy turning on another burner. The spark is being provided by a switch that is working. To answer your question: the igniter is removable, but I don't think it's necessary. Cleaning them generally doesn't make them work better. I would check the wiring from the spark module to the burner switch and/or replace the switch. I hope this helps.
