Hi,
if you smell the gas it doesn't mean that igniter is working.,it means the valve is working properly.The spark module is the problem.

Frozen locknut holding burner to cooktop


These frozen nuts can be a real pain, try spraying something like w d 40 or similar over a couple of days before trying to force it, best to get a ring spanner or socket that fits nice and tight.
Good luck. Ray

How to replace a cooktop drip pan


It's really simple. Remove the burner grates, removed the old drip pans, then drop in the new drip pans. You can order a new drip pan from partselect.com if you don't have one yet. Let me know how this works out and if you need any further help.

I have a GE model jgp940 gas cooktop one of the four burner electrodes will not spark.


You have to determine if it is the electrode or the ignitor module and replace the component. A simple test is to swap the wires on the spark module for the non working one and see if the other electrode still works. If not the electrode is bad, if it does than the module is bad.

My ignitor on my ge cooktop keeps clicking slowly in off mode


As it relates to 5 burner gas cooktop Model Number JGP 963SEJ1SS
First - Ignite the flame then reduce the flame to between low and medium.  If the igniter continues to click, you most likely have a contact switch issue related to the problem burner.  
Unplug the cook top and turn off the gas.  After the gas is turned off, disconnect the gas line.  
Remove the cook top.  

Unscrew and Remove ALL of the burner bases by lifting them up.  The ceramic igniters may be difficult to remove but they will come loose if worked out slowly.  
Pull of the wire connected to the igniter. 
Remove to cook top top plate from the base, exposing the internal gas valves and wiring.
All of the burners are wired in parallel.   Lift off and unsnap the casing of the problem igniter switch.  The repair may require something as simple as, 1- cleaning the contact strips, or 2- slightly bending the non stationary contact strip to keep it from coming in contact with the stationary contact when in the off position, or 3- replacing the switch. 
Unless you comfortable and understand how electric systems and switches work, this is a job for a qualified repair person.

GC913 wok ignitor installation


The electrode goes through the wok burner bowl then the spring fits under the bowl. You have to push it up until it clips into the groove on the electrode. Should be quite a tight fit.

Miele KM 320 G gas cooktop ignitor


I had a similar problem and discovered that the control knob had fried itself, most likely due to liquid penetration down the shaft of the control knob and into the control knob electronics. Inside is a printed circuit board with resistor, diode and a rheostat. The surface of the board was charred beyond repair.
To trouble shoot the problem, open the cook top and hook the burner in question to one of the known good control knobs. If it ignites, then it is the control knob electronics. If it doesn’t, then there is something wrong with the igniter.
Note: The 2-zone Wok Burner had a different control knob that the other burners.
To open the cook top, do NOT loosen any of the Phillips screws on the sides. Here are the instructions from the user manual:
Disassembly
Shut off gas supply, disconnect the manifold pipe, disconnect the electrical power. Remove pan supports, burner heads and burner rings. Remove control knobs.
In the event that the hob is built in, undo the bracket clamps underneath the work surface. Lift the hob on to the work surface. Unscrew the venturis on the high-speed and super high-speed burners using a 20 mm wrench. Lift and remove the burner rings and burner base plates. Disconnect the wires from the ignition plugs. Keep the wire from dropping into the undertray by inserting it in one of the slots in the burner supports.
Remove the three screws securing the dual ring wok burner. Remove the wok burner base plate. Lift the ceramic tray from the hob.
Note: Each regulator shaft is equipped with a black ring. This ring may cling to the rubber seal in the ceramic tray. Check and remove the rings from the rubber seals.
