Question about Cooktops

1 Answer

After cleaning, one eye is trying to ignite ("clicking"). Stops when I unplug the cook top. I've made sure all is dry. Don't see anything "out-of-place". What next?

If the igniter is clicking on its own, and this happened right after cleaning the range cooktop, then that undoubtfully means that liquid had penetrated under the cooktop panel and now is causing a short on igniter contacts, wiring, or on igniter switch.
Try leaving the range unplugged for 24 hours, the problem should disappear. If it does not, then the cooktop panel must be removed to find out what happened in there, and you may have to replace wiring, igniter, or igniter switch.. In that case it will be helpful having the range model number (as on service tag).
y first unplugging the appliance for one day, keeping the range plugged to main after that liquid damage had occurred may cause more problems to the appliance.

Regards.

Electric igniter continually clicks spontaneously


clean any debris around all the spark electrodes and any ground points near each electrode,food or grease will make them do this,make sure you use a cleaner like isopropyl alcohol or a greaseless cleaner and let dry good before starting unit,if this doesn't resolve the problem,then you need a new spark/ignition module for the unit,but this first step is much cheaper

After cleaning my cook top, the igniters won't stop clicking. What do I do?


The electrodes have moisture around them still and you can assist in them drying with a hair dryer or even turning the stove tops on for about 15 minutes to assist in drying them out. Don't go ordering parts you do not need. Thanks, Rick

Igniter will not turn off. Makes a clicking sound


Hi, normally what causes the igniter to keep clicking is spilling water or something down into the knob area. The water is causing a short circuit in the switch which is mounted on each burner valve shaft. If unplugging the range for several days to allow drying doesn't fix the problem, then one of the switches will need to be replaced.

Ingiters don't work - all burners


Unplug cook top. remove drip pan with screwdriver. Use hair dryer to completely dry area that might have gotten wet during cleaning. This may take five minutes. Put unit back together and plug in cook top.

Spark continuously on


If you have recently cleaned it, you may have gotten moisture behind the knobs and into the spark switches. Be very careful not to let moisture get behind knobs. Very dangerous. If this is the case, they may dry out themselves and stop sparking. If not you may need to replace a spark switch behind knob.
