SOURCE: burner will not turn off

I will need the complete model #. There should be a sticker near the bottom front behind the drawer. Can't use the # that is on the owners manual.

SOURCE: Electric spark for gas range burner is non stop

Turning any knob starts the spark via a switch behind each which should disengage when the (any) knob is turn further.
One of your switches is stuck.

I think you should be able to remove the range-top for access and find the offending switch.
It is probably gummy from a spill and is no longer in solid contact with the cam that operates it.

A solvent/lubricant such as WD-40 sprayed on the plunger of the switch once you can see it and operating the knob back and forth should free it up.

It might be wise to turn off the gas supply while tinkering with the range - blow your house away and the range won't matter. :-(

SOURCE: Range burner will not turn off, the knob is tight and stuck

Not knowing age - very often older (standing pilot) ranges will have burner valves that become hard to operate. These are usually a tapered core valve that can be greased with a high temperature valve grease.

When the power is turned on at the wall, the automatic spark that lights the gas top comes on on the two right burners, and wont stop even after the light is lit. What can I do about it?


Behind the knobs for the right burners are 2 electrical switches that start the spark when you turn the knobs on. One of those switches is bad and stuck in the on position. You have to pull the knobs off and remove the trim behind the knobs to get to the switches.

Have a wolf range and the spark generator which lights the burners will not stop clicking even when i turn the stove off. if I turn on the middle back burner it will stop clicking. how do i stop this?


Remove the knobs and skirts and a few screws. Remove the panel and locate the spark switch that is bad by removing one wire at a time till the ticking stops. dfc80e7.jpg

you need to replace youburner switch, it is failing. There is a mechanism inside this kind of switch which turns power on and off to the element, thus regulating its output. The mechanism is stuck closed, so your switch does not regulate the output, When you turn the burner on, it's on "High" no matter the knob position.

You can order the original switch here: 3148954 (use coupon code "New10" for 10% off).

To replace the switch: Unplug the range. Remove back cover of the control panel (usually an unpainted piece of sheet metal). Remove the knob in the front. Remove 2 screws holding the switch. Now disconnet wires one by one from the old switch and connect to the new one. Even if the switch looks exactly the same, make sure to match LETTERS on the switch (usually P,L1,L2,H1,H2,), not the connector position!

Good luck! ;)

Burner on range will not turn off


Look at the back of your range there should be schemetic for your power control board. look for defective burner wire going into relay. There should be 5 relays in rows. Realy is the problem. I had the same problem with my front left burner stuck on high.
After replacing everything works okay.
