It would appear to be a trapped or shorted wire in the control panel.

Shut the power off and move the control panel, it should be fairly obvious where the short is as it will more than likely be black

Oven will not heat, control panel is eratic, gas burners will not spark


Check fuse box to see if stove is receiving power. Turn one top burn on and hold a lit match to it. if it does not light. Call gas company to see why there is no gas to your stove.

Range: Gas burner won't spark or ignite A surface burner igniter switch and a spark module activate the spark electrode when a burner is turned to the "Lite" position on a gas range's cooktop. If the surface burner switch, spark module or wiring in that circuit fails, the spark electrode won't work, and as a result the gas burner won't light. If those components work but the electrode won't spark, the problem could be that the spark electrode is coated with spilled food of is bent or broken. In addition, the electrode won't spark or ignite the burner properly if the ceramic insulation sleeve below the tip of the electrode is cracked or broken. If the gas burner isn't lighting, these repairs may help.

Replace the spark igniter electrode

1396454293470.jpg The spark igniter electrode-also called the surface burner igniter-is an insulated electrode that provides an ignition spark to light a surface gas burner. It sparks and makes a ticking sound when the burner switch is turned to the Lite position. Replace the spark ignition electrode if it fails to spark or if the ceramic insulation sleeve is cracked or chipped. How to Replace a Spark Igniter Electrode in a Gas Range Find This Part

Replace the surface spark module

1377098014986.jpg The surface spark module is in the ignition circuit for the gas surface burners. When a surface burner control knob is turned to the "Lite" position, it provides voltage to the spark electrodes on the gas surface burners. If the surface spark module fails to provide the electrodes with voltage, then it should be replaced. Find This Part

Replace the spark igniter switch

1396454315355.jpg The igniter switch is an electrical switch on the stem of the gas surface burner control valve. This switch completes a circuit to the surface burner spark module, causing the burner igniters to spark when the burner switch is turned to the Lite position. Replace the burner igniter switch if the burners don't spark when you turn the burner control knob to the Lite position or if igniters spark constantly even when the burner knobs are in the Off position.

Burners will not light


Hello bdrillbit - 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.

Yes,all burners spark as a safety feature in the event any gas knob is turned on.
The non sparking burner could be from a bad spark electrode, poor grounding on the burner cap or a bad spark switch for that burner.

When one burner knob is turned to the light position, all burners will spark. Once the burner lights, just move the knob slightly so it is no longer in the light position and all sparking will stop.

Profile stovetop spark element will not stop firing all 4 burners are sparking and will not stop unless I unplug the unit


You have a bad spark switch on one of your burner switches.
Remove the control panel to access the switches and burner stems. Carefully remove one wire at a time from each switch. When the sparking stops,that will be the bad switch. Replace the bad spark switch.

I have a ge profile gas range and the burners are making a constant clicking noise and spark. The only way to stop it is by either unplugging it or turning the power off to it


Under each gas control is a switch that will turn on the spark module when rotated to the light position. One or more of these switches has failed. Some models these switches are individually replaceable, others the switch is an assembly of all four.

Spark igniters on the burners fire continuously


Had The same problem. I removed the top of the control panel to find out that one of the ignitor switches had turned when I replaced the four large plasic nuts on the control panel. Make sure the switches (block) are aligned, and kept aligned, when re-installing the top of the control panel. Startwreck.
