    thought is may have been too much water getting where it shouldn't be. did use a hair dryer for a while to help dry out under the knobs. An hour or so later it did stop. Just in time for Thanksgiving cooking.

    Thank!

    Help! All of the electric igniters are clicking even when turned off. I was cooking red sauce all day and then all of the sudden around dinner, all of them started clicking. My husband finally went out and turned off the circuit breaker that's connected to the cooktop to make it stop. What do I do? Tracie in Metairie, LA

Unplug unit and allow to dry. You can remove knobs and dry under the knobs with hairdryer. If still clicks you need to replace spark switches behind knobs.

(2) front Burner igniters on my new Matag 30" Cooktop continue to click


Sounds like water got into one of the switches. This usually happens when you wash the knobs. Water stays in the holes and runs down the shaft when replaced. Maytag has issued a recall on some stoves because this can be a fire hazard. UNPLUG THE COOKTOP UNTIL THIS IS FIXED!!!!!!!!! This has happened to me with a whirlpool unit and it tripped a breaker and shot sparks across the kitchen. First go to Maytags web site and see if yours has a recall. If so Maytag will fix it free. While you are waiting leave stove unplugged and light with a match. If you need to fix this yourself disconnect the wires from the two switches this should stop the sparking. Connect one switch at a time and see which switch is bad. Most of the time the electric part of the gas valve can be replaced seperately. and you can do this yourself. If you must actually disconnect a gas pipe unless you really know what you are doing call for service.
