JGC9430 Gas Cooktop Ignitor continously clicks when gas is off/on

We recently have had a problem with this cooktop. Nothing was spilled on it but the left rear ignitor continously clicks non-stop. It will click with the gas off or on. I have tried to clean all the connections and the top itself.

I cannot figure out what is wrong.

BOILING WATER SPILLED OVER FROM POT INTO COOKTOP AND NOW IGNITOR KEEPS CLICKING


Hi, water is a great conductor of electricity. It is likely nothing to be concerned about in this case though, if you light the burners and allow the water to burn off/evaporate from the ignitors it should be fine. It happens all the time with gas ranges and cooktops. Once the ignitors are dry they will stop conducting/sparking unwanted. Hope that helps calm your concern. Thanks for coming to "fixya" for your solution. Please take a second after reading this to rate the info provided to you. Good luck. Macmarkus :)

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.

Spilled water on the burners and now the ignitors are continously clicking ?


It sounds like you shorted out your spark module. You may have to replace it. Refer to your owners manual for a loaction and possible part number
