Why want middle burner light automatically but will light with a lighter


That unit is suppose to have electronic quartz igniters. Apparently there's a problem but it doesn't automatically mean the igniter needs to be replaced. If you see a spark from the igniter then it's fine. If you see a spark but no flame then the ignition process is out of synchronization. In other words, the gas hasn't concentrated near the spark enough to ignite. This may be a matter of low gas pressure or the extra length the gas needs to flow to reach the center burner is impeding ignition. Simple fix is turn the knob just enough to start the gas for 2 seconds then continue the turn to click the igniter. or simply use a match. You may also see if there are any adjustments on the gas manifold that will enhance bringing more gas to the center burner quicker. Some unit have one click & that's it, others click the igniter continuously until you release turning the knob. Good luck. you'll figure it out.

My gas cooktop is contiuing a clicking sound to start the gas burner. it is not the color of the flame or that stuff. Just the starter keeps trying to start. the gas burner that is all. Blair


Hello Blair
Does the clicking or spark stop with all knobs in off position? If so it's probably the one burner valve for the one you're trying to light ,stuck in light mode,sending signal to module.Have that burner valve replaced.($50). (2) If clicking continues even though everything is off, it could be any one of the burner valves or your ignition module is messed up .You would have to pull wire off each burner valve one by one to find the offending valve . If not valves then suspect ignition module.
Easily fixed either way.



Feedback appreciated !

All the burners are clicking


Hi there.I think what you have done is you have gotten water in & its just shorting out & causeing them to click.this should go away once it drys out.Meanwhile leave it unplugged.plug it back in every so many hour & see if it's stopped.

Kitchenaid gas ccoktop electronic ignition continues to click


We called in an appliance repair technician. He said during the cleaning process of the cooktop, when the control knobs had been removed to thoroughly clean the cooktop, some cleaning fluid or water or moisture got into the ignition switch panel under the cooktop. Letting it dry for 24 hours should fix the problem and this appears to have done that.

My GE Profile gas cook top was just cleaned. Now the starter keeps clicking and the only way we can stop it is to unplug the appliance. As soon as we plug it back in it continues to click.


if you have a multi meter you can figure this out. check to see if you have continuity through the switches while they are in the off position and unplugged from the spark mod. if you do replace the wire harness. if you dont replace the spark mod.

Ignition stays constantly on, How to fix it or shut it off


its a gas cooktop it has to be plugged in somewhere op e the cabinet and unplug it. possible that the electrodes got wet and click from a false sense of continuity, after being unplugged overnight that will sometimes be enough. you also might have a bad start switch on one of hte burners causing the machine to click automatically. try unplugging over night first

Continual clicking of the automatic ignitor even when burners are off


some JA models i have seen the the spark switces are poorly constructed or improper installed from the factory and beging to become a probelm after a year or so of use. this is not a gas pressure issue it just plain ole' bad spark switches
