    Similar problem, all four burner ignitors began clicking when all of the controls were turned off. We unplugged the unit for 15 minutes and then plug it in again. The clicking stopped.

Now it will not stop clicking if it is plugged in

    We had the same problem. All ignitor sparks started activating for no reason. I unplugged the stove and cleaned all the burners, then plugged the stove back in. The clicking continued and won't stop.

    Ours is doing the same thing - started all of a sudden this morning. We unplug it, it stops. But it does not go away when you plug it back in. All the knobs are off - the burners appear clean underneath...

    We have two of the four igniters clicking. After some time, it stopped, and then finally caused our GFCI to trip. We have not been able to reset it.

You most likely have a defective spark module.

Jenn-Aire Model CVG4380 gas stove top. Why doesn't igniter work?


Under your knobs are burner switches, 3 of them are the same, so this will be a hit and miss on getting them but possible. Each burner should trigger the ignition system. This will be needed to be inspected to find out which one needs to be replace. If you get the right person to look over the unit they could tell you if it can be repaired. I worked on one about 3 years ago and it worked out fine. Good Luck and I hope this helped.

It will stop once it drys out. The best bet is to unplug the electrical power cord and let it dry overnight. Plug it back in the morning and it should be fine. The moisture is most likely in one of the switches just behind the knobs.

How do i start the pilot light on a JGBP28wek6ww

That model is an electronic ignition, ther isn't a standing pilot on it(no liitle flame that stays lit). Light the burner by pushing in on the knob and turnlig to "LITE" position, you will hear a clicking noise the sound of the electric spark igniting the burner, turn the knob to adjust the flame size. Keep in mind that all igniters spark whenever any of the knobs are turned to the "LITE" position. Good luck !

How do you dry out the stove ignitors? They have

You do this at your own risk, but try holding a lighter flame next to the igniter gap close to the burner and light the burner manually when the igniter clicks. The heat will dry them out.

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.

There must be a problem in one of the switches which is behind one of the knobs. Will have to check each switch with a meter.

Igniter stays on on all four burners all the time. Had to turn off breaker to stop. Started sparking all by itself with burner in the off position.

Usually this happens when water or some type of liquid gets on one or more of the igniter switches. Let it dry for 48 hours, turn the power back on and see if it keeps on clicking. If it does, one of the switches needs to be replaced. Not a very difficult job. Hope this helps, APP tech
