THat is the way the igniter circuit works...all burners activate at the same time...that is a safety precaution in case more than one burner is on. As far as the igniters continuing is concerned, there is a problem with one or more than one of the push in to ignite knobs being stuck in the in position. Use some CRC or WD40 spray on the shafts behing the knobs by removing each knob and spraying where it slides.

SOURCE: Electronic ignitors won't stop clicking

Pull the burner caps, etc off the stove and completely dry the area ..Be sure to inspect each ignitor contact for cleanliness as well. If the ignitors have soapy buildup or water, around them, they can act like this.
You should be able to pull the burner caps and flame diffusers off and clean with a paper towel, and if needed, a light scouring sponge. Be careful not to scratch the surfaces, but scour the top of the ignitors carefully if you need to clean them.

SOURCE: I have just replaced all

first check to make sure all the burner tops are setting correctly on the burner base, if not it will make the flame uneven. the way the igniter works is once they feel the flames on them they will stop sparking. make sure the flames are not too low and they are touching the igniter. check them one at a time. if you have any questions message me back thanks

Ignitor keeps clicking


I have the same problem, believe it's a bad potentiometer on the two left extra low burners. The other four use a micro switch that you can hear click when you turn the knob. My problem is can't figure out how to remove control panel.

How do i light the pilot?


Turn the Gas Control Knob inside the heater compartment from OFF to PILOT. Push in the knob and hold it, at the sametime push the ignitor button (will probably be a Red button). Once the pilot lights, continue to hold the Control Knob down for one minute. Then ease off of it. If the pilot stays lit, turn the Control Knob to the ON position. The burner should light, if the Thermostat is set higher than the ambient temperature in the house. If the Ignitor button doesn't work, you can match light the pilot. Just be careful and follow the instructions above, once it's lit.

Hope this helps solve your problem.

How di i light the pilot light


Be sure that the gas line to the heater is ON.

Looking at the Control Knob on top of the heater, you note that he knob has 3- positions: OFF, Pilot, ON.

Turn the control knob to the Pilot position and push down on it. If it does not go all the way in and your do not feel strong pressure pushing back at you, it is not directly in the pilot position. (Reposition the knob slightly and try again). Once You're sure the knob is directly in the pilot position and the knob is depressed, continue to hold it in and press the Ignitor button next to it. You will hear a loud click. If possible, watch the pilot assembly inside the heater when you do this. That way you can see if the pilot lit the first time. If not repeat, pushing the ignitor.

If the gas line had been turned off to the heater, the pilot may not light the first couple of tries, due to air being in the gas line. If that is the case, hold the control knob in until you smell gas, let off, wait 5 minutes and repeat the lighting sequence.

Once the pilot does light, continue to hold the control knob in for 1 minute. This will allow the Thermocouple to heat up completely. Ease off the control knob and the pilot should remain lit. If it does, turn the control knob to ON and the burner will light.

Now you're ready to set the temperature or comfort level. You do this by raising or lowering the flame height. The higher the flames, the more heat it puts out. The lower the flames, the less heat it puts out. The stripe on the knob represents the flame heights - Narrow stripe, lowest setting, widest strip, highest setting. Or your specific model may simply say Low, Medium, High.

If you do not have the Owners Manual for this heater go to http://www.desatech.com/
click on Wall Heaters and enter the Model Number of your heater. You can then download and print the Owners Manual.

Hope this helped to get you up and runnig.

The electric igniter continues to click (ignite) even after the stove top burner is lit.


The switches for the ignitor are in the control knobs for turning on the gas...does the unit do it on all burners or just 1...if just 1 then the control switch assy will need to either be cleaned or replaced

When I turn on a burner, all the other burners click like they are trying to turn on as well. The clicking is continuous and really annoying! Thanks for your help! Tammie


Anytime you turn on a gas range all burners click for safety reasons. If a knob has been turned by mistake the gas lights to prevent gas from escaping into the room. If you turn the control knob past the LITE position after the burner lights you should be OK and stop the clicking. If the clicking continues regardless you have a defective ignitor switch that must be replaced.

Clicking gas cook top


I accidentally bumped the thing where the gas comes out (I don't know what it's called - I'm a wife not a tekkie) and it started clicking when I turned it on. I turned off the gas and repositioned that gizmo and it stopped clicking.
