All lights and ignitors on my GE ZGU385N (Gas cooktop) stopped working all of a sudden. I checked the input voltage to the transformer and all looks fine so I know the issue is not with the outlet or power...

Disconnect power and set you meter to ohms. Check the both the line side and the low side of the the ****** for continuity. If you cannot get a reading from either side then that puppy is bad. More than likely that is gonna be it since everything quit. If it was the igniter box you might have weak spark etc. I thnk that transformer is your prob.

The igniter on my GE cooktop wont stop clicking, only if i unplug it.

Spark module part no 318 at parts diagram it may be wet and by using a hair dryer or leave it unplug for some days can dry out and stop. If not then the electric contacts are stuck and need a new spark module

Igniter doesn't spark on only one burner

There are three parts to the ignition system typically.

The ignitor that is either in the burner or outside the burner.

The spark ignitor switch that is located on the burner control. (( one for each control ))

The spark modual. the modual creates the hi-voltage spark.

If the burner that does not ignight with its control does not spark but does spark with one of the other controls then the spark ignitor control switch is bad.
You can test it with one of the other burner control knobs. (( just try a working burnder and when it clicks look at the bad burners ignitor and look for the spark.))

If the bad burner that wont ignight does not spark then either your modual is bas or the ignitor is shorting out.

If you see any little spark but it does not spark from point A to Point B like the other burners then your ignitor is shorting and should be replaced.

If your ignitor is ceramic and it is cracked, then it should be replaced.

Most common is either your spark modual is bad or one of your ignitor switches is shorted.

More information will be needed to help you further
Model # off the machine. are you refering to the clicking noise and how often is it. just constant or once ever 10 min ?

if its constant then i would start with the Switch if has time between them 3, 5, 10, 15, 30 min I would go with the Spark modual

The electric ignition sparks even when in the off position

did you spill any liquid in/on the cooktop? sometimes it just takes time to dry out. or you need a new spark modual

One of 4 burners doesn't spark/light -- GE JGP979 Cook Top

I am going to assume you hear the "clicking" sound when you try to light the burner.
open the top of the stove. there are four burner. look at the one that is not lighting. use a straighten paper clip open the holes that is directly in-front of the tube that is facing the center of ignitor.
also make sure that the air vent directly behind the knob is fully open.
