Shut off the stove. Then lift up the range top and you will see pilot lights. Remove the cover on the pilot lights. They could be blown out, but usually they are just dirty. Take a pin and poke it through the hole, then carefully scrub the tubes with a brush that go from the range to the pilot light. When your done with that....use a long match and light the pilot light, make sure no gas is on when you do this. No flames will come out, but it doesn't hurt to be extra careful.

This just happened to me so good timing!

Hope this helps

I have a 30 in jgp336 gas cooktop that fails to ignite when it clicks what is wrong, it worked a few days ago and suddenly stopped working


usually the spark module is not put back together properly.
1 make sure the spark unit is clean
2 make sure the gas jet is pointing towards the sparker
3 make sure there is no aluminum foil or other metal near the sparker pulling the spark away from the gas

The igniter spark for all gas rings remains on permanently without pressing down the gas flow knobs. I can see nothing prompted this - I just came into the kitchen one morning to hear the igniter clicking...


This could be a problem with your spark module. its an electronic box either behind or under the cooktop. it sends the spark to the spark tip, which then ignites he gas. So in my opinion i would say it is your spark module.

The igniter on the right front burner of my GE Gas cooktop does not work....I must use a lighter or match to ignite....What can I do? There is no clicking sound when I turn on the burner?


all burner igniters work at the same time - you may have a faulty electronic spark unit. change the spark unit. go to repair clinic dot come for the unit. also would be wise to check the ingniter start switch on the gas burner control knob

Igniter clicking when all four knobs in off position after water spill


It is possible that once the unit dries out the clicking will stop. If it doesn't, you will need to call someone to have the problem addressed. You will need a spark module and or an ignition switch(s).

My GE gas cooktop not working. Model#JGP336BEV1B8


Are the other 2 burners lighting with the spark? If so the other 2 are either shorting before the burners or the sparkers are faulty.

To service, the cooktop needs to be completely removed from the bench and disconnected from the gas as the access is from the bottom.

I could step you through it while watching, but to do it this way is not a good idea. It's probably worth ringing a serviceman.

1 burner wont stop clicking on miele cooktop km 344


We have an older Thermador Gas Cooktop type range. It was working fine until the cleaning crew came in, then all the burner igniters were clicking when turning on a single burner. I solved the problem by cleaning off the igniters. I first of course unplugged the power. Then I took a small wire telcom pic tool to scrape the white and brown deposits from the sides of the igniters. You could probably use something else similiar to do the scraping. I noticed a shiny surface underneath. I then went ahead and scraped and brushed clean the mating surface where the spark travels. I then vacuumed up the mess. My burners all worked great after this. Hope this helps!
