Erika,
Leave the power off for an extended period of time, like overnight for example. Then plug it back in and see if the problem resolved itself.
Sometimes all that is wrong is that moisture got inside one of the switches and is causing a short. If it is left off long enough, often this is enough to stop the problem. If it keeps happening, you need to either call a serviceman or use an ohm meter to determine which switch has failed.

2 of my 4 burners on my Magic Chef Pilotless Ignition oven/stovetop no longer ignite - I need to do it by hand. Every once in a while one works but mostly neither will light up - other 2 work fine. Do


If you are seeing sparking coming from ignitor then it would be more likely that the ignitor has gotten out of position and would need to be put back to proper positioning. If the ignitor is not sparking then you would want to get a new ignitor. Here is the ignitor to order.
There is a video on that same parts page to show you how to make the repair.

Jenn-Air JDG8430 Ignitor won't stop sparking after burner ignites


Test the ignitor first, if the ignitor does not spark should be the ignitor itself.

I have a Whirlpool super capacity 465 gas oven that won't stay lit. It often lights up the first time just fine but then it turns off which is normal but when it tries to relight itself the ignitor...


That sound to me like yall have some carbon buildup on the igniter. On this stove the igniter does 2 jobs. It lights the burner and verifies back to the control that Houston we has ignition. If junk is built up on that ignitor then she won't be sending verification of ignition back to the control. That white residue needs to be removed. NOTE: I don't have your model number I am going by what you describe that this stove is a Direct spark ignition model. If you have a normal ignitor it probably is weak and not drawing 3.5 amps to open the valve. Post a model number (bottom drawer frame)

Miele LP cooktop: we turned the power to the range off. when we turned on again it didn't ignite (it has power!)


Hello

Keep the air holes around the burners free of debris and grease by clearing out the holes with a thin piece of wire or a toothpick. Cleaning out the holes helps the ignitor light the cooktop

Listen for the clicking sound of the ignitor, then turn off the burner if you don't hear the clicking.

Turn the burner to the "Off" position, if you continue to hear the ignitor tick after you've lit the burner. Turn the burner back on to relight it. Ignitors normally make a brief series of electrical clicking sounds when you turn on the ignitors.

Let the ceramic igniter dry out if it has gotten wet and the burner won't ignite. If the igniter isn't wet, clear out the little holes in the burner by chipping out any blockage with a straightened paper clip.

Clean the electrodes if the burners still don't light. The electrode is in the burner base. Clean the metal part with a soft cloth. You can use emery board on the metal part but not the white ceramic part.

The igniters on my Five Star TPN535-BGSW Dual Fuel Kitchen Range don't stop after the burner has ignited. This is a long time intermittent problem that effects the most used burners but not the least used....


Most likely one of these two causes:

1. Corrosion or build up on one of the metal surfaces that provide a path to chassis ground from the ignitor through the burner and frame back to the chassis ground connection to the spark module.

2. An intermittent spark ignitor wire or corroded connection to the ignitors.

There is a 3rd possibility if the range has been worked on ...

Turn on all the burners, if the sparking stops then the problem is that two or more of the ignitor wires have been swapped between burners.

Electric ignitors clicking


I'm sorry that I don't have a solution for you, but my Miele gas stove does the same thing. I had a repairman come out while it was under warrantee and they fixed it, but it was only temporary. It's doing it again, but, of course, it's no longer under warantee and will be very expensive to have Miele come out again. I've found that it's the right front burner that causes the clicking, so I've just stopped using it.

Spark ignitors on ge jgp636 either don't work or lght wrong burnr


Electric gas igniters sometimes get stuck in one position causing a clicking sound. The clicking sound that you hear is the electric arc that is pulsing from the igniter conductor (wire) to ground (the gas burner). It receives power from the electrical outlet that the stove is plugged into.
Residue from food and sometimes cleaning products may be preventing the igniter from producing a spark (Arc) to the base of the burner. This is a common problem that occurs when the stove has been cleaned or food is allowed to build up. Make sure that the igniter and the burner base are clean and dry. This will help with proper operation. Oven cleaner and a small tooth brush may be used to accomplish this. Another problem with ignition may occur if you have too little (touching) or too much space between the igniter and the base of the burner; it will prevent the burner from igniting. You should only have a little more space than the thickness of a nickel between the burner base and the igniter. A good “blue” arc from the igniter to the burner base is optimal. If this doesn’t work, you may need to replace the electric igniter module. Good luck.

Clicking noise on cooktop even when all burners ignite


I have a viking gas cooktop. The ignitor on one of my front burners wouldn't stop clicking even after the flame ignited. I swapped that ignitor with the ignitor from a back burner, expecting that the problem was with the ignitor and that the back burner would start to click incessantly, but at least I'd have my favorite front burner for use. Instead, the front burner was then only clicking 50% of the time and the back burner was fine, suggesting the problem was related to the burner not the ignitor. I pulled the front ignitor a bit away from the burner and now it is working normally. Hope this helps.
