Question about Kitchen Ranges

1 Answer

I cleaned my cooktop and of course disassembled the burners. Replacing them, I found that I couldn't get the ignition to shut off on two of them unless I shut the burner off completely. However, if I leave out the middle element, the ignition does shut off. I've checked that the little air-holes are free, and indeed reamed them just to make sure. I believe everything is lining up correctly.

You may have gotten the spark switches wet.
They are attached behind each surface valve.
Remove the valve knobs.
Take a hair dryer and blow hot air into each switch for several minutes to dry out the switches.

Is there an orange glow in the burner area when this happens? If so then the thermostat is not shutting the ignitor off and needs replacing. If there is no glow then the gas valve is not shutting off the gas and needs repalcing

Spark module wont shut off once it has ignited. Do I need a new one


Hi,
I would clean the electrodes on the burners really good, sometimes they seem not to sense heat from the burner and will not turn off the ignition system. Other times I fond bad grounds to the cooktop or outlet that can cause the same issue. The electrodes since heat from the burners to shut down the inanition system, also with out a good ground this system is impossible to work correctly.

I hope this helps

When I turn on a burner on in the front of the cooktop the nearby burner keeps trying to ignite and makes the "clicking sound"


Hi lmills189,

I believe your ignition switches have come in to contact with either water or moisture.

Please read my below Tip on how to fix the problem:

If it does not solve your problem, I'd suggest replacing the ignition switches.

Gas igniters on all five burners keep sparking (JennAir CCG556B)


Try cleaning around all the ignitors at each burner. Look for build up of cleansing product and/or food. Sometimes all it takes is a good cleaning and removal of a buildup to solve this. Worth trying before replacing a bunch of parts!

Ignition will not stop clicking...


Did you clean your stove recently? If the switches under the burner knobs get wet they will cause the burners to click. Unplug the unit or shut off the power for a day. Once the swithes dry, it should work normal.

Igniters do not spark on one side of cooktop


Is the gas able to flow freely through and out of the bad burners? Sounds like they may be clogged somehow

Gas cooktop


We have an older Thermador Gas Cooktop type range. It was working fine until the cleaning crew came in, then all the burner igniters were clicking when turning on a single burner. I solved the problem by cleaning off the igniters. I first of course unplugged the power. Then I took a small wire telcom pic tool to scrape the white and brown deposits from the sides of the igniters. You could probably use something else similiar to do the scraping. I noticed a shiny surface underneath. I then went ahead and scraped and brushed clean the mating surface where the spark travels. I then vacuumed up the mess. My burners all worked great after this. Hope this helps!
