Ignatior keeps sparking and stop why


i presume the sparking is actuated by when you push down on the knob. there is a switch under there. remove the knob by pulling it and use some small drop of cooking oil on the shaft to free it up. pres and pull till it works freely. this should allow the spring in side to push the knob up easily and turn of the sparking.

The ignition on my hob is sparking every second or so constantly on it's own? The knobs don't seem to be stuck down or anything obvious. All four ignition points on the cooking points are visibly sparking.


I think the problem lies at your knob mechanism. Try to service the mechansm. Currently the possible problem is lies at the contact point(electrical) might accidently contact without pressing down the knob. This normally occur when it is hyper press or there are grease in between the contact. Possible solution is replace the damage knob... or repair it.

I have a JGP636 or 960. One burner won't do


When you turn the burner knob on does the igniter click and turn off on it's own when the flame ignites? If it does then it has flame rectification. That means it can sense when the flame is on. Or does it click when the knob is in the light position and not stop until you move the burner knob? Then this is standard ignition. If it is standard ignition it sounds like it is the igniter switch built into the burner knob might be defective. Are you able to turn on any burner knob and when they are in the igniter position do all the electrodes spark or just the burner that you are turning on? If they all come on then they are wired in a series. If they are wired in a series do you get a spark at the electrode of the problem igniter? If so you can turn on one of the other burners to ignition position then while it is clicking turn on the problem burner to light it. If the cooktop uses flame rectification then there may be a problem with the switch built into the burner knob or the flame rectification sensor for that burner might be bad.

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
