Smeg SA435 - spark and loud sound

I switched my SA 243 top right burner (large one) on and was boiling some vegetables. There was a loud sound and a spark came out of the plate and the circuit break tripped.

i switched the hob off and tried to switch on the circuit breaker but the spark happened again.

what do you think happened and what is the solution

One burner ignitor does not work


Try cleaning the burners by boiling them in degreaser like soda crystals. Burnt food can act as an insulator to the current for the spark which is grounded through the burner. If that doesn't work, you need to left the top of the hob to check the wiring underneath.

My smeg cooker is brand new! after cleaning it - one of the rings will not ignite properly, it clicks so gas is coming through but no flame! any sugestions?


Brand new means you have a warranty, get the service agent to check.
I have found that you can easily place the wrong burner cap on the incorrect burner ring(the smaller burner caps).
Could also be dirt or water in burner ring or the burner jet(use needle to clear jet).
Are sparks coming from all ignitors? You might have damaged the spark plug.

Ticking sound on the gas top after burner is off. How do I stop?


Remove all the burners and thoroughly clean in warm to hot soap and water. Do the same for the burner seats on the cooktop.

Suddenly I hear a constant 'clicking' sound from the Maytag csg7000 cook top which I am not using right now. It's like it's trying to ignite by itself. What could be a problem?


usually this is a problem with one or more of your ignitor switches, they are found below the selector switches, below the top, if you take off the selectors you might even be able to see them,
these are what sends voltage to you ignitor, from the spark module, one one goes bad, they all tend to spark, because light one light all....

this link wil take you right to the part i suggest,
as well as be able to order it

since this happens alot after a boil over i would start with one of the front two burners,,,, you can order one and keep replacing them with the next till the clicking stops

Ignitors keep making ticking sound, all burners turned off, won't go in lock position, and one burner will not ignite gas despite constant ticking


Probably a spillage or boil over has clogged the burner and some of the liquid has dampened the shank switch mounted on the burner post. Get a shop vac and clean the burner. Wait a day or 2 and see if the switch stops. OR disable the ticky ticky by removing the bottom drawer and looking for the spark module. Remove one of the hot wires and tape it up. Light the burners like granny does with a match. LOL

Only high setting works on burner


Sounds like the Switch or the element are bad, try trouble shooting them. It's a stove top??
