Did you ever figure out how to remove the stovetop? I just ordered a new spark module and will have to install it soon. Thanks

The ignitor keeps sparking and won't stop.Do not


First of all, the model number is under the cooktop bottom, and secondly, this can happen due to the burner switches got wet somehow. Best thing to do is to unplug unit for 6-12 hours, allow to dry, then re-plug unit back in, this should be enough time to dry out the burner switches.
Good luck

Cooktop Range Stove spark ignition does not work


You go to light the burner on your cooktop and the spark does not work.
What can the problem be? In most cases the problem will be because the
spark ignition module has gone bad. This spark module is a piece of electronics that produces a harmless electric spark at 2-4 pulses per second. Because the spark is a ultra low amperage spark, it is not dangerous.

A typical spark ignition will look similar to this.

This box is usually in a metal box located somewhere under the cooktop of your stove or in the back panel of your stove. The easiest way to find this is to simply follow the electric wires that go from the spark ignition box to the spark tip located at each of the burners.

The spark is activated by a switch that is located behind each of the burner control knobs. When one of the switches is turned on, all of the burners spark at the same time. The spark switch will look something like this.

To troubleshoot the spark ignition you need to determine if the system is wired in series or parallel. If the system is a series system and one is not sparking, then none will spark.
Almost every time if the spark is not working, it is because of a bad switch. To isolate which switch it is, turn each switch till you find the one that does not activate the module to spark. You can confirm this by pulling the two wires off of the switch and touching them together. If you get spark you know that the switch is bad. If no spark happens then either then a wire is bad or the module is bad. If none of the switches cause the module to spark then it is a good assumption that the spark module is bad.

By checking through these procedures you will be able to tell whether your problems are caused by a bad switch, a bad wire, or a bad spark ignition module. You will discover almost every time that the switch behind the burner is the part that needs to be replaced.

The igniter spark for all gas rings remains on permanently without pressing down the gas flow knobs. I can see nothing prompted this - I just came into the kitchen one morning to hear the igniter clicking...


This could be a problem with your spark module. its an electronic box either behind or under the cooktop. it sends the spark to the spark tip, which then ignites he gas. So in my opinion i would say it is your spark module.

My GE Profile propane gas cook top was just installed yesterday. When I go to turn on one of the burners, all of the ignitors click. This can't possibly be normal. Anyone else have this issue?


Yes, thats okay when you turn the knob voltage gets sent to the spark module, Then the module sparks all the burner igniter. And frame ignition only happens on the single burner of the knob you turned that sends gas to the burner associated with that knob.


Please rate me a "4" if this information was useful.

GE profile gas cooktop - sparker firing with knobs turned off?


replace your spark module
have you spilled liquid on the cooktop recently?
if yes let it dry for a couple of days and see what happens.
sometimes when you spill liquid on the cooktop it grounds out the spark module and it will continue to spark until it drys.
let me know if you need more help

Have Jenn-Air 36" gas cooktop w. 5 burners, black. Mdl JGC8536ADB. Plastic knobs keep splitting, even if we remember to push down before turning. Have replaced two sets and now we're down to two working...




Hi

Thanks for using FixYa. There are a few things to check for. Make sure the electrode (the small metal piece that the spark comes off from) is clean and the holes in the burner are clean, use a pin or paper clip to clean out the burner holes and not a tooth pick as these can break off and make things worse. Example of a burner. The next thing to check for are the ignition switches under the surface control knobs, the switches can twist and break and keep the spark module on and the spark keeps "clicking" even when the burner is light. If every thing looks good, you may have a bad spark module, replace it.
The switches or the range control knobs may have got wet and are completing the circuit to the spark module thus causing it to continuously click or fire off sparks continuously. Use your hair/blow dryer and blow some hot air around the spark module area.

This is a typical spark module wire diagram--



Please do accept the solution if the issue is resolved or else revert for further assistance.

Thanks

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.

Starter keep trying to start when cook top is off.


If you have recently cleaned unit and got moisture behind knobs, this may stop when the spark switches dry out. If not you will need to replace spark switches behind the knobs.

Burners not lighting


I had the same issue and replaced the spark module myself, lots of wires and you have to make sure to label them before removal to be able to hook them back up correctly. To get to the module you need to unscrew all burners, no need to take the cover plate under the knobs. Burners remove by unscrewing center, brass nut. OEM spark module is VIKING RANGE #PA020021 U-67205-21. Go
