Maytag gemini gas stove. Ignitor problems

Even if the stove is off, the ignitors will click by itself and becomes annoying. I unplug the stove everytime it does this. By next morning, I plug the stove and seems to work just fine.
What can I do to prevent this from happening again? I'm afraid that it might ignite when no one is home. Could be dangerous. Please advise.

My experience with this is that it occurs when moisture gets into the ignitor area and shorts out the open and causes the spark. It stops after it drys out.

This is very non-techinical and I will defer if there is a deeper solution.

I GOT THE BURNER IGNITOR WET WHILE CLEANING STOVE...IT KEEPS CLICKING...WHAT DO I DO


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.

Woke in the middle of the night hearing the ignitor on the gas range going nonstop. We ended up unplugging the stove to get it to stop. What is this problem about?


Usually a bad ignitor switch, but can also be wiring or a spark module. Leave it unplugged for a few days to dry it out. Moisture gets into the ignitor switches if you have a boil over, or if you get a little over exuberant about cleaning around and under the burner switches. Quite often we get this problem when someone sprayed cleaners on the stove surfaces to clean it and the moisture got into the switches under the knobs. If this still clicks after it has dried out, you will have to have a serviceman out to diagnose which of those three problems it is. Good Luck, Appliance Specialists

Ignitor maytag MGR6772BDS gas stove


One of your switches on the gas controls is bad. You'll have to remove the lines from the switches to the ignitor one at a time to figure out which. With the power off, lift the top of the range to expose the controls. There are connectors for the power at each control. After removing one line, turn the power back on and see the result. You'll know when you've hit the right switch. Then, replace it.
