Question about GE Kitchen Ranges

1 Answer

GE Gas Kitchen sealed burner

GE Gas kitchen range igniter keeps sparking on its own.
Gas on/off knobs are turned to the off postion.
The two far right igniters keep sparking in unison.
I am able to turn all four knobs to the "lite" position and the burners will lite. However the two far right burner igniters keep sparking even when their knobs are turned to high and the gas flame has ignited.
Previously the igniters were working fine. Known good working gas range.
Any suggestions would be appreciated.

How do you light the pilot for the four burners on top?

This machine should have a ignition system when you turn the gas knob.

Make sure you have power to machine. if you do and you turn the know to the light postion and you dont here the clicking noise then it is posible you have a bad spark modual or switch harness or your ignition system is not geting power.

Igniter clicks on the wrong burner

The spark supposes to go to all burners. The spark igniter of the non working burner needs to be replaced.

Pilot on GE stove keeps popping non-stop

As far a "popping" do you mean the igniter on the cook top "clicking"? Did you clean the range and use too much water? If water gets into the igniter switches they will short out and constantly click. Also if the polarity at the electrical plug you can get what is called "ghost spark" so make sure that the polarity is correct at the electrical outlet. Each gas control valve has a switch that turns on the igniter when the knob is in a certain position and they are all wired in a sequence. One of those switches may be shorted out or have a loose wire(range dis-assembly required to inspect). Do you visually see a spark at the electrodes of the burners or do the burners ignite? If you cannot see the spark then there may be a grounding issue and possible loose wire.

Burners not igniting

If you are getting a spark, but no gas ignition, I am guessing that the gas is not reaching the ignitor. Burners have many holes that allow that create the flame pattern. There are usually one or two holes right next to the ignitor. If the holes are clogged or mis-alligned, there will not be any ignition. On sealed burner ranges, lift out the burner cap, clean it, and make sure it is alligned properly. On open burner ranges, inspect the holes near the ingnitor and use a small wire to clean them. Sometimes you have to remove the burner to get a good cleaning.

Burners not lighting

You have one or more spark switches defective or a loose wire to the switches.
They are located on each gas valve stem.
Yes they should be replaced for safety.
In the interim you can match light the surface burners.

Range igniter acting strange

You most likely have a defective spark module. This is a device that transforms standard household current (120 volts) down to about a 12 volt spark to ignite the gas. You should probably call someone who is experienced in this field.
