Continuous clicking from an igniter in the off position. I have to slightly turn the control knob towards the hi position to stop the clicking and for the light on the control knob to go off


sounds like it was turned a little past the stop point.
Pull two knobs off and examine the back side that slides onto the shaft.
Switch them and try again.
If the problem is on the same burner, the shaft may be turned past its normal stop position.
You can try turning it until it stops in the opposite direction and force it just a tiny bit more.
That was how I fixed mine.

I need to replace two blue indicator lights and I need directions


I have replaced several of the indicator lights in the control knobs.

Turns out that Dacor doesn't sell exact replacement lights (actually LED modules).

What I did was to go to a local electronics supply store and purchase Blue replacement LEDs and a current limiting resistor to connect in series. Replacement LEDs can vary in brightness depending on your taste ... I chose a super bright LED which makes the control knobs noticeably brighter. The value of resistor will vary depending on the LED you choose (brighter LEDs need slightly more current and as such the resistor value will be slightly less).

Once you've opened the range from the top (remove knobs, grates and burners) then remove a few screws and the entire unit opens with a hinge in the back.
Look over the LED light modules which shine just below each knob and fashion a replacement LED assembly.

Total material cost per LED unit was ~ $2-3 (LED, resistor, wire and heat-shrink tubing)

Ignitor does not spark on first turn as stated in manual. I have to turn the knob past "lite" before flame comes on.


Is it just one burner knob that does that are all of them? If it is just one then the igniter switch built into the burner knob might be out of alignment or loose. This happens most of the time due to a cracked switch housing(made of plastic). This can also happen if the actual burner knob is cracked and/or loose. If all the burners do this then it is just the way the cooktop works. The best way to get the burners to light is by slowly turning them on until they light and not pay attention to the "light" mark. You might need to turn it just past the "light" mark for the burner to come on.

When you turn the burner on, the lighting around the knob does not light up. How do I fix this? Jenn-air cooktop cce3531


There are only two possible solution to this problem one of which is that your indicator light is faulty and will need to be replaced. part number for the indicator light is 706125. the other possible solution will be that the wire has simply burned and the part number for this wire is 706091. I`m not sure why there is a ``special`` wire part number. A generic high temperature wire will be sufficient.hope this helps.

Thanks

Have Jenn-Air 36" gas cooktop w. 5 burners, black. Mdl JGC8536ADB. Plastic knobs keep splitting, even if we remember to push down before turning. Have replaced two sets and now we're down to two working...




Hi

Thanks for using FixYa. There are a few things to check for. Make sure the electrode (the small metal piece that the spark comes off from) is clean and the holes in the burner are clean, use a pin or paper clip to clean out the burner holes and not a tooth pick as these can break off and make things worse. Example of a burner. The next thing to check for are the ignition switches under the surface control knobs, the switches can twist and break and keep the spark module on and the spark keeps "clicking" even when the burner is light. If every thing looks good, you may have a bad spark module, replace it.
The switches or the range control knobs may have got wet and are completing the circuit to the spark module thus causing it to continuously click or fire off sparks continuously. Use your hair/blow dryer and blow some hot air around the spark module area.

This is a typical spark module wire diagram--



Please do accept the solution if the issue is resolved or else revert for further assistance.

Thanks

When lighting one of the burners, the ingnition knob has to be held down over ten seconds for the flame to stay lit when the knob is released..


Lift the top of the Stove up.
Look for a Small line that goes to the Affected Burner.
At the end of that Line you will see a small Flathead Screw.
Turning That screw Clockwise Adjusts your Pilot Light for that Burner.
Be careful not to Adjust to High, it would just be a Waist of gas.

hope that helped.

Burner light does not go off on Amana AKT3040


Sounds like a short in that particular burner circuit. Usually when the light stays on even after cool down the heat sensor is bad. This is inside the burner. If your getting white smoke the burner switch could also be shorted out.

Burner with intermittent feature won't light once hot; spart OK - - no gas.


mdpaul, sounds to me like 1 of the burner switches for the ignition is sticking. There is a small area where the switches turn to that shuts down the ignition. If the switch has failed from heat or is out of position, this can cause this issue. The switch is designed so when you turn the knob it closes the contact. The switch has to be locked into postion on this model. There is a push fit type retainer that locks this down. Pull the knobs off and turn with a pair of plyers to see if one is moving around. If so then with a deep socket, see if you can tighten the retainer by pushing down on it. Hope this helps.
