Kitchen aid cook top gas. iginator consstantly firing with knoob off
I have a four burner gas cook top with electric snap start. I was washing the cook top and one burner started snapping with out the burner turned on. It wont stop. I tried turning off stove breaker and turning back on still the same problem? Any ideas. My cook top is made by kitchen aid and I never had this problem before. It is really bad.

Strutz, you probabley got one of the valve switches wet when cleaning. It could of shorted out or it might be just wet. Pull the control knobs off the burners and take a hair dryer and go over the valves slowly. See if it stops the clicking. If not you will probabley have to change out one of the switches. Im not coming up with anything with the RGA365 model number. Try the above posted first...Catriver..post back.

You'll need certified stove technician to service you kitchen Aid range. You
have low gas flow on one of the burner. The manual gas control valve behind the
knob needs to removed and cleaned. If you have one cleaned then have technician
clear all four of these manual gas valves. While he cleaning the valve have do a
complete check up of you Kitchen Aid range. Dangerous for the home owners to
do this procedure because flowing natural gas or propane. In a lot the states
you'll need to be certified by the state to work with natural gas, gas stove,
ovens, gas home heating units, etc. It differentially a no,no here.
It is not the burners, it is gas flow valves for the burners. Most of the
burner are made of aluminum and I wouldn't use any harsh cleaners of them.
Check with Kitchen Aid and ask them what is recommend for cleaning the burners.
Also the top of the range isn't ceramic but porcelain, it glass that has been
melt to the top hood of the range. Don't use scratch pads, steel wool or any
thing that will mare the Periclean surface of your stove.
If you can get the aluminum burner out to clean them then do so. GB you
Allison and I wish you many year cooking on your Kitchen Aid range.

Very likely the spark module. All four are supposed to click when one is turned on, however they are supposed to stop when the burner ignites. Replace the module and test. Good Luck, Appliance Specialists
check fuses and pull out burner elements see if they are damaged if fuse blows when turned on make sure wiring to elements is not exposed I would also check the switches for elements, turn on one at a time
Unless Jenn-air has a conversion kit. (highly doubt this) It would be a serious undertaking to switch out 2 burners for LP use. Gas tubes, igniters, electronics, regulator, gas jets. Not to mention the modifications changes needed to the stove top to make all this work. That gas regulator has to go somewhere and piping from tank/regulator/burners.
Not saying it can't be done mind you. But think about it long and hard before committing to this job. Small gas leak can become a huge headache later.
What I'd do is gently take a sharp razor scraper in a holder and scrape off as much as you can. Then, I'd take a bit of WD 40 and work at it with a paper towel. You can also try the low abrasive cleansers. Thoroughly rinse before returning to service.
igniter's are bad and, or, a short in the wiring or switch. replace the igniter, then check to see if problem still exists, you can also check wires going from igniter to switch with ohm meter for continuity and shorted wires.
