Question about Kitchen Ranges
One of the switches mounted on the individual gas controls has malfunctioned.To find the broken one what I do is remove a wire from each switch one at the time till I isolate the malfunctioning one. When the ticking stops the switch can be replaced. This involves removing the knobs and cover to get to the switches.To temporarily stop it from happening is easy enough. yank out the bottom drawer and tucked under a shield is a small igniter box. Remove one of the power wires temporarily and tape it off. You can then light the burners with a match like granny used to do it back in the day. These switches mount on the individual gas valves and are all wired together so if one of them is bad the only way to tell is to do as I prescribed. Some models do not offer the individual switches but sell the entire harness. I would rather spend $5 than $100 and I bet you would too. Look on line for sources of Harper Wyman switces. These are the manufacturers of all these small switches you see on stoves. This is what a typical HarperWyman spark igniter looks like. Simply remove one of the input wires and the annoying sound till you can diagnose those pesky switches.
