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

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

    Have the same problem with the igniter not working on the front right Max. I find that when I press the knob in on the top while it is in the LITE position the igniter works a little better. So it is not the igniter but the knob that is the problem.

    I have a GE profile gas stove about 5 years old about a year ago the sparker for the Max front burner just stopped working and must be ignited with a match, now a year later the other front burner the sparker has stopped working, now only the sparkers on the two rear burners work. I found that when i turn on the gas all sparkers that still work spark but not the front two. If I light the two front burners with a match and then adjust controls to spark then while the gas is burning I can see a spark from the sparkers but without the gas being lite with a match there is no spark, what is wrong?

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

One front burner ignites but the igniters continue to spark. when all other burners ignite the igniters immediately stop sparking. this problem started right after spilling some water on burner.


I would make sure you have wiped up all the water you spilled, You may need to take the burners off the stovetop and make sure the tiny little pinholes for the gas to come out are fully dry, Than re-assemble everything and try again.

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.

Igniters will not stop clicking.


Hi


Thanks for using FIxYa.The igniter doesn't stop clicking due to a short inside the igniter circuit or due to moisture present on the ignition switch.Turn off the gas supply immediately and also unplug it from the mains power. Now take a blower or your hair dryer and blow hot air over the igniter. Also check for the following troubleshooting steps---


1) The gap between the igniter and the burner base is too large. *Should be approximately the thickness of two dimes.

2) Soiled igniter or burner base.

The above can be tested by switching the suspected burner with a known operating burner.

3) Loose wiring connections at the igniter, the grounding strap, or spark module.

4) Broken or pinched igniter wire between the burner and module.

Both of the above are physical inspections under the main top.

5) The module may have a week coil, which is not providing sufficient voltage to ignite the gas.

Even after performing these steps the igniter doesn't stop clicking then you need to replace the spark module.

Please do rate the solution and revert for further assistance.


Thanks

Stove top igniter won't stop clicking


I found this on Youtube... I thought it might have to do with a thermal sensor not working properly.
Anyheuw, watch this video and see if this doesn't help fix your issue. If not, please respond and I will look at the schematics for the board as you may have a relay or some capacitors going bad.

Igniter issue - some do not turn on other do not turn off


I would try cleaning the burners. You can purchase cleaning brushes made specifically for this purpose and they work like a charm.

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.
