SOURCE: Burner light does not go off on Amana AKT3040

I had the exact same two problems with my AKT3040. Both problems were on the dual burner.
1. Problem with the "hot" light always ON was solved by replacing the burner (problem caused by defective temperature sensor), unfortunatley it seems you can't get the sensor by itself these days so I had to change the whole burner.
2. smoke came out from the knob controlling the dual burner: problem solved by replacing by a new knob. You have to be carefull since the replacement knob is a little different than the original part so you have to connect everything properly as per the provided instruction sheet.

SOURCE: Amana gas cooktop clicks when not in use

Take a look at the solutions that have been posted regarding igniters. i suspect a dirty or wet push-down knob. you will see that others have had water/moisture causing problems. drying mights solve it, but it may need a a bit of a clean. keep trying. it must have taken me a couple of hours to solve.

The left rear stove element went on High and would not turn off by controls, why? There was an F550 code that came earlier with the oven?


My range was doing the same thing. I finally called the Consumer Protection Agency and reported it. It launched a national recall. With their help, Frigidaire replaced my range. On Easter 2014, the new one did the same thing. Burner turned on by itself, to 8.5 with knob in the off position. We had to unplug it. Frigidaire once again did not care. I contacted the CPSA again - they are investigating. I will NEVER have another Frigidaire Range. Check your model number against the recall information. Don't trust it! It is a fire hazard.

Continuous clicking from an igniter in the off position. I have to slightly turn the control knob towards the hi position to stop the clicking and for the light on the control knob to go off


sounds like it was turned a little past the stop point.
Pull two knobs off and examine the back side that slides onto the shaft.
Switch them and try again.
If the problem is on the same burner, the shaft may be turned past its normal stop position.
You can try turning it until it stops in the opposite direction and force it just a tiny bit more.
That was how I fixed mine.

Cooktop burner do not ihnite


Hi hgodoy2 - Is the electronic igniter aligned properly? Ensure that tip of spark igniter is aligned with metal point or "nib" located on underside of burner cap after the burner mounting screws have been tightened. (Not all burners having mounting screws). When the burner control knob is set to the "LITE" position do the igniters spark? Can gas be heard or smelled coming from the burners when the control number is turned on? However, if you smell gas, I highly recommend turning the unit and the gas off if you can reach it and contact your gas provider. The range itself does not have a switch or regulator to relight it. Keep in mind that it may be experiencing an issue with the spark module, electrodes, wiring or EOC.

If you can disconnect the power to the cook-top then do so..this will give you a little peace of mind...it seems like the switch for that burner is defective(eg: stuck in on position)..the switch is an integral part of the control that turns on the gas for the burner..you may need to replace the control assembly..these are available from appliance parts stores and on-line

One of your burner switches is stuck in the ON position. On older models the switch itself can be replaced. On newer models the whole bunch need to be replaced. c2c8a4f.jpg

The igniter on the right front burner of my GE Gas cooktop does not work....I must use a lighter or match to ignite....What can I do? There is no clicking sound when I turn on the burner?


the very first thing i would do here is to check the ignitor itself
under the head cap you should see two screws, once those are out you will be able to lift the burner plate, lift the burner plate, you will see, or should see the ignitor, and the wire.
i check this for voltage by unplugging the ignitor and olding the wire close to a ground, the metal body is good. Turn on the ignitor, becareful it is live. yhou shgould see a spark comming from the wire
if not check to make sure that wire is in position and on the spark module
if you do see a spark this way, just order the replacement ignitor
and install it when it arrives

Stove not on - but fan comes on automatically -


it sounds as if the thermostat is broke. it could be the two wires off the thermostat are after melting together. ( burning smell). the thermostat stops power going to fan when it sences below a certain degrees. but your one has been cut out of the circuit due to the two cables melting together. this means fan will constantly stay on. you need to find and replace thermostat and make sure no cables melted together. if they are then seperate and use insulating tape to re insulate.make sure circuit breaker is off while doind this
