All igniters stopped working whirlpool 465


Hello,
I am almost fur sure that the problem will disappear by itself.
The ignitor is a high voltage "transformer". Even with a little moisture, the way to ground for the highvoltage electricity will go via the humidity in stead of the ignition candles.
After a while all will be dry again and all will work nice again.
If not, then there is some trouble with the ignitor or the wire to the ignitor.
I hope this helps, Dik

Electronic ignitors won't stop clicking


Pull the burner caps, etc off the stove and completely dry the area ..Be sure to inspect each ignitor contact for cleanliness as well. If the ignitors have soapy buildup or water, around them, they can act like this.
You should be able to pull the burner caps and flame diffusers off and clean with a paper towel, and if needed, a light scouring sponge. Be careful not to scratch the surfaces, but scour the top of the ignitors carefully if you need to clean them.

My stove is making strange clicking noises. please help.


It sounds like the ignition knob is stuck in the "ignitor" position. Try taking it off, clean it and adjust it. If that doesn't work, it will have to be replaced with a new one. If yu leave it alone, it will probably wear itself out. Just make sure that the gas valves on the stove are in the off position so that they don't accidentally light on their own. Good luck

My ignition for the gas cooktop is clicking without being in the on positoin. will this be caused by cleaning with water? is it going to cause problems?


One of your burner ignition switches is fried. To see which one it is you remove a wire from each one till the ticking stops. Or plan be just unplug the stove and light it with a match.

After cleaning the stove top the 4burners turned into continuous ignite mode


You probably got water under the cooktop while cleaning around the knobs. It causes a short at the 120 volt igniter switches on the shaft of each valve. Unplug the stove for 1 or 2 days and let it dry.

Stove top ignition doesn't stop ticking


My Dacor cooktop had a similar problem of continuously clicking igniters. I unplugged it a couple months ago and used a piezoelectric igniter to get it started. Then I looked in the Dacor FAQ and it said to clean the ceramic igniter posts with alcohol not water. I had to scrape some gunk off a couple of the posts with a knife before cleaning with alcohol. Now it works.'

I think the igniters use electrical conductivity to detect when they need to spark, so even slight invisible contamination on the igniter insulator can confuse the sensing system. Also they all seem to fire as a group, so all of them need to be clean because if any one of them is dirty then they will all malfunction.

GE profile gas stove igniter don't stop igniting


take a look at the igniter located in the center of two burners. clean the gap with a stiff brush between the eletrode and the upper plate. the distance is preset at the factory. you may have enough buildup to close the gap enough to trigger the igniter.

Igniter will not turn off once burners are lit.


I've had the same problem for 2 years. Today I removed the four burner tops, the 15/16 inch bolt that holds the burners in place, took everything apart (simple connections underneath), completely cleaned and dried eveything. I also cleaned the 4 knobs and making sure the 4 swiches slide up and down freely then dried everything with a hairdryer. Is now works fine but if the problem comes back, I'll simply unplug the cooktop and light it manually. P.S. I stripped one of the large 5/16 inch bolt that had become weak and brittle. - Try using water or some liquid to loosen the bolts as necessary. Good luck, CHEERS!

Gas Stove - Electric Starter


Just happened to me. I unplugged the electric starter, wiped up the water, took off burners, etc., and placed a fan over the stove. After about 3 hours, I plugged in starter and the clicking is no longer.
