Question about Cooktops
Hello, I've got a Spinflo gas hob with a press down ignition button system. Under the button the innards are missing, all that remains is a small coiled spring in the base which I assume is for a battery to fit onto (1 of AA size I think) but nothing at the top - which I guess would be the positive end of the battery. Does anyone have this type of ignition on their gas hob? Could anyone throw some light on this problem please? no pun intended. Thank you for any help/info.

Had the same problem. All five burners were continuously igniting, after my wife had given the stove a clean. Turned off the power, removed the five knobs and corresponding rubber rings, and used a hair dryer on the five holes where the knobs were for about ten minutes in total. Hey presto, when I turned the power back on, the constant igniting had stopped. Thank you all. I love the internet :-)

Glad to Help you!!
Take the knob off, them remove the cover that housed the switches, OK, Now, Look at the switch that is continiusly clicking and it will have two wires goin onto it, remove these wires and just lift the sending unit, and inspect it for water, grease etc ect....clean and dry and put back on and try again it should work, if it does not work, then just get a replacement one, they are not expensive, I just replaced two on my Jenn-Air myself and it cost me $25.00.
Hope this will help!!

the ignitors have got wet usually due to cleaning. they are usually located under the rotating switches just let them dry out ( very well .....may take days) and it will work normally again
