I have just replaced all the ignitors and the spark control module on the cook top burners. Prior to this the back burners would cause ignition spark continually when lit. the front 2 burners could be...


first check to make sure all the burner tops are setting correctly on the burner base, if not it will make the flame uneven. the way the igniter works is once they feel the flames on them they will stop sparking. make sure the flames are not too low and they are touching the igniter. check them one at a time. if you have any questions message me back thanks

One front burner ignites but the igniters continue to spark. when all other burners ignite the igniters immediately stop sparking. this problem started right after spilling some water on burner.


I would make sure you have wiped up all the water you spilled, You may need to take the burners off the stovetop and make sure the tiny little pinholes for the gas to come out are fully dry, Than re-assemble everything and try again.

Burners sometimes will not light


You can check the ignitors/wiring by switching

the output wires at the spark module. If the

front ones work & back ones stop working, change

out the module. If no change take a look at the

ignitor(remove screw on bottom to remove

ignitor), ignitor wire & ground wire by removing

the burners.

Possible Causes Of Continuous Sparking:
Defective spark wires.
Continuous high heat can cause spark wires to

degrade. Use volt/ohm meter to determine

continuity
of spark wires. Look for obvious cuts/ abrasions

or pinch points. A defective wire can allow
spark voltage to transfer through insulation to

ground prior to reaching spark electrode. Under
normal circumstances all igniters fi re together

and if the burner in question has found an

easier
ground path the spark will go there. It will

not, however, in most cases have found a

CONTINUOUS
ground path such as what the fl ame would

provide under normal circumstances. This will

cause
the spark module to re-ignite.

When I turn on a burner, all the other burners click like they are trying to turn on as well. The clicking is continuous and really annoying! Thanks for your help! Tammie


Anytime you turn on a gas range all burners click for safety reasons. If a knob has been turned by mistake the gas lights to prevent gas from escaping into the room. If you turn the control knob past the LITE position after the burner lights you should be OK and stop the clicking. If the clicking continues regardless you have a defective ignitor switch that must be replaced.

Spark igniters on the burners fire continuously


When cleaning, if the control switches get damp, they will react as you describe.
Unplug the appliance, use a hair dryer and attempt to dry the switches.
Leave it unplugged overnight and try them again tomorrow.
They will eventually dry and be OK.

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.

Clicking noise on cooktop even when all burners ignite


I have a viking gas cooktop. The ignitor on one of my front burners wouldn't stop clicking even after the flame ignited. I swapped that ignitor with the ignitor from a back burner, expecting that the problem was with the ignitor and that the back burner would start to click incessantly, but at least I'd have my favorite front burner for use. Instead, the front burner was then only clicking 50% of the time and the back burner was fine, suggesting the problem was related to the burner not the ignitor. I pulled the front ignitor a bit away from the burner and now it is working normally. Hope this helps.
