One of 2 reasons - either you outlet is not properly grounded or there is a short in the range. This could be a shorted (bad) spark module, or one of the wires is shorted. All can be tested with a multimeter. Hope this helps!

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.

I can't get the electric ignition to stop clicking. I'm not sure this is the right model, but it looked the closest to my cooktop


Hi- most likely the spark module is bad. Sometimes a burner swith gets stuck as well. Unplug the unit, the plug should be inside the cabinet. Take off the knobs and see if you see any obstructions and see if the knob posts move freely in and out (push to turn). Probably need to get a Tech out to look at it. If it is clicking even when the burners are off you can just leave it unplugged and light with a match to use it. If it is only clicking when you have the burners on check to be sure all the burner bases and caps are assembled correctly and seated, sometimes the electrode will continue to click if the burners are assembled wrong or are wet. Hope this helps a little. Good Luck.

The electronic spark continues after the burner is lit. It continues even if the burner is turned off. this continues for about a minute before it stops


You have one of your spark switches sticking. It may have come loose or possibly grease has migrated into it.
Remove the switch panel and check the switches for a loose or broken switch.
There is a switch behind every surface burner knob.
They must be seated firmly to work correctly.

Viking gas cooktop vgsu161-6b sparks continuously. There is no gas leaking. I spilled water on the controls and it is only when I turn on the 3rd knob from the top that this happens.


The water that you spilled onto the cooktop has shorted out the ignition switch in the gas control knob. Don't worry though no permanent damage has been done. Leave it unplugged from the electrical outlet for a day or two until the liquid dries out. You can manually light the burners with matches or a BBQ lighter in the meantime. If you want to try and speed up the drying process you can use a hair dryer.

Dead burner on kitchenaid gas cooktop?


it is strange that you have no gas and no spark! if you held a match to the burner and turned the burner valve on it would lite di spite a failed ignitor,but for it not to lite, the burner valve[its what the knob attaches too] would have to be blocked[thats rare]or ........i got it .....the knob is broken.thats the only thing the burner valve and the spark ignitor have in common.try a knob from another burner................again.you have spark,because others are working.spark on troubled burner would work if valve blocked at orifice outlet,and if spark failed you would still get gas they work independent of each other,[but in unison].thats why im thinking knob.its the item that works both .when you turn the knob it opens the gas valve and as the gas valve rotates by turning the knob it activates or turns the spark switch so it closes the curcit allowing the electricty to the spark moduel.hey i hope that helps a little. God bless ,tom

Viking Gas Burner issue?


is this a sealed burner unit? if so the burner base (the heavy brass part under the burner cap) has to be sitting just right. you will notice that it has holes around the the sides make sure that where your ignitor sparks to it that it aligns with the lowest hole on the burner base. if you have a great flame all around the burner after checking what i mentioned i would replace the spark module. if it continues to drive you crazy with the noise - just unplug it. the burners will continue working fine without power.

Ignition sparking on its own with GE mongram gas stove top.


the sparking is one of the switches under the knobs shorted you may be able to open the top and take a switch off 1 at a time and you can figure out what one is shorted.or you can just change all of them.
to stop this you may be able to just unplug the cooktop from under the top.if you unplug the cooktop you should be able to light the burners with a match.

Burners ignite simultaneously (clicking)


When you set a burner to light, all burners spark. This is normal. Move knob back off the spark position as soon as burner lights. All sparking will stop.

(2) front Burner igniters on my new Matag 30" Cooktop continue to click


Sounds like water got into one of the switches. This usually happens when you wash the knobs. Water stays in the holes and runs down the shaft when replaced. Maytag has issued a recall on some stoves because this can be a fire hazard. UNPLUG THE COOKTOP UNTIL THIS IS FIXED!!!!!!!!! This has happened to me with a whirlpool unit and it tripped a breaker and shot sparks across the kitchen. First go to Maytags web site and see if yours has a recall. If so Maytag will fix it free. While you are waiting leave stove unplugged and light with a match. If you need to fix this yourself disconnect the wires from the two switches this should stop the sparking. Connect one switch at a time and see which switch is bad. Most of the time the electric part of the gas valve can be replaced seperately. and you can do this yourself. If you must actually disconnect a gas pipe unless you really know what you are doing call for service.
