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.

We spilled liquid into the gas burner by accident and it won't stop clicking. We can't find how or where to unplug it? GE PROFILE GAS STOVETOP RANGE


Won't stop clicking?
When?
Is it clicking constantly or only when you attempt to ignite a burner?
Normally the clicking can be traced to the electronic ignition that activates when you turn the burner on.

Regardless if you need to turn it off but do not have easy access to the back of the unit, you can always shut it off at the circuit breaker located in the breaker/fuse box.

Hope this helps but if not just let me know.

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.

Large burner only sparks for other values to light and won't light by its own switch


sounds correct, if it didnt spark at all and you had not replaced the igniter I would check that the wire from that igniter be followed to the other end to verify that it had not come unplugged at the other end.

On a new range I bought that igniter would not spark even though the others did and its wire was unplugged
