Question about Fisher and Paykel GC36 Gas Cooktop

1 Answer

Pilot ignition will not stop clicking until the left front burner is turned on.

I've dried off and cleaned all 5 burners and made sure no residue or water is present anywhere. When I turn the front knob for the left front burner off the clicking and sparks continue. All 5 burners seem to be sparking. The only way I could stop this clicking was to unplug the unit.

Hello & Welcome to FixYa

If you have already replaced the igniter and tried to dry out moisture with a hair dryer then the problem is with the spark module that needs replacement. Please get back to me if you have any other questions.

Two of gas burners will not light


Assuming you have electronic ignition on your stovetop, you may have spilled food onto the burner which has clogged the holes needed to get gas to the spark ignitor. Clean the holes (or slits) and dry them and try again. If they are not dirty, check to make sure you have a spark at each burner. If you have manual pilots, there could be many other problems, like the pilot is not lit, dirty vertical holes (on the burner side) at the pilot tunnel or tunnel is not positioned properly.

Ingiter will either fail to start burner or won't quit clicking on the 1% of the times it does start up the burner


Hi look for adjustments to the lighter and also there should be a sensor tat sees the fire , this sesor allows the main gas to turn on, but only if it feels the heat , kind of like a thermocouple , if you think about about any type problem like this: what is it not doing ? then think what could cause this >/? if you go about any repair this way there is nothing you can't fix unless you need a part !

Ignitors clicking


Electric gas igniters sometimes get stuck in one position causing a clicking sound. The clicking sound that you hear is the electric arc that is pulsing from the igniter conductor (wire) to ground (the gas burner). It receives power from the electrical outlet that the stove is plugged into.
Residue from food and sometimes cleaning products may be preventing the igniter from producing a spark (Arc) to the base of the burner. This is a common problem that occurs when the stove has been cleaned or food is allowed to build up. Make sure that the igniter and the burner base are clean and dry. This will help with proper operation. Oven cleaner and a small tooth brush may be used to accomplish this. Another problem with ignition may occur if you have too little (touching) or too much space between the igniter and the base of the burner; it will prevent the burner from igniting. You should only have a little more space than the thickness of a nickel between the burner base and the igniter. A good “blue” arc from the igniter to the burner base is optimal. If this doesn’t work, you may need to replace the electric igniter module. Good luck.

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.

GE gas stove top igniters won't stop clicking


My wife just called me with the same problem - all 4 starters are clicking repeatedly - which started while the range was being cleaned.
From a Google search, this is what I found. Don't know if it will solve our issues, though wanted to share as it sounds like we may all be suffering from dirty starters (electrodes).
My surface burners keep "clicking" even after the burner is lit. There are a few things to check for.




And, to check the model number, look at the various places pointed to in the upper left of this diagram. http://www.applianceaid.com/newpics/range-model2.JPG

No Ignition


Dirt. Spilled oil, grease, milk etc. act as isolator and prevent contact between burner and casing (mass). You need to clean up burners, scrub all the dirt and make sure their seats are cleaned too (brass elements below burners).

Igniter issue - some do not turn on other do not turn off


I would try cleaning the burners. You can purchase cleaning brushes made specifically for this purpose and they work like a charm.

Ticking Sound of spark igniter persists


Our GE cook-top burner igniter has started ticking even when the oven is shut off. Even after cleaning the bottom of controls the ticking persists. Any suggestions? Thanks

Electronic ignition


Alien, one of your burner switches either got wet or shorted out. These switches are located on the burner valve itself. Sometimes you can take a hair dryer, pull the knobs of the control valve and dry out the switch. If this doesn't work, more than likley one of the switches gone bad. Catriver...post back.
