Often times, just leaving the range unplugged for a time will solve the problem, which is most often caused by water or a cleaning agent getting into an igniter switch behind a burner knob. After the switch drys out it usually starts working again. In the mean time, you can still use the burners by lighting them manually with one of those long lighters, but you will not be able to use the oven or broiler without electricity. If the range continues to spark after being left unplugged for more than a day or two, you will have to determine which switch behind the burner knobs is causing the problem. Please don't bother rating, as anything but a Fix-Ya will lower my score. Thanks.

Electric spark starter on one of the burner runs continuously


check the spark head on that particular burner first for dirt,they all need to be clean to recognize the flame after ignition and sense the flame to shut off the sparker module after ignition,and if not you will need to replace the spark module that fires the sparkers itself,but try cleaning sparkers and underneath where the wires connect to the sparkers first for contamination,its cheaper than starting to replace parts

You are getting water into the range when cleaning causing the igniter switch to short out. The reason why it goes away after a few hours is because the water finally dries up. When cleaning the range refrain from using so much water. You will need to leave the range unplugged until the water dries up again.

Hi Mike,

The Dial/Swiitch Has A Fault, Or The Igniter Electrode is Touching, or too Close To The Contact Area.
Try Turning the faulty switch, left or right Gently.
Could be grease/dust arcing the Contact.
Broken Or uninsulated Wire Under The Ignitor, arcing against metal surface.
