Re: my range electrodes keep firing

If you cleaned it with soap and water or a household cleaning solution, some of it has probably gotten down to one of the switches that control the surface ignitors. Very common problem. Leave it unplugged when you are not using it and they will dry out and return to normal. You can pull the knobs off and try using a hair dryer, it may help a little, but it basicly is just a matter of time.
There are different variations of this model. If you will post the complete model number I can probably tell you how to remove the top, but there usually is little reason to take it off unless something needs repairing.

5 burner gas Vicking stove top keeps clicking after is on


Their are 2 possible reasons the igniters would continue to click after the burner is lit.

1) the burner is slightly dirty and the part of it very near the electrode is not burning correctly so the igniter doesn't think the burner is lit so it will not tell the spark to turn off. It could be cleaned by using steel wool and cleaning the burner holes near where the electrode is and then use a paper clip and poke through the holes on the burner to clear them so they burn correctly.

2) the electrode (the spark plug at the burner) is cracked so even though the burner is lit so the electrode can not sense that the burner is lit and wont tell the spark to turn off,so if having cleaned burner it still clicks after burner is lit the electrodes would need to be replaced.

Whenever i light the gas top wolf range, the ignighters on other burners keep firing


The electrode (spark plug) for that burner is not telling the spark module the burner is lit and go ahead and turn off the spark. That electrode and the wiring on it need to be replaced,from that burner back to the spark module.

I hope this helps you to repair the problem with you stove,

Kenmore gas 4burner cooktop model#229c44330p001-0 when its off the pilot keeps clicking(sparking) every 5-7secondstcarthen@

There are a few things to check for: First 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. The next thing to check for are theignition switchesunder 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 badsparkmodule which should be replaced as sometimes cleaning can get moisture into the surface switches; try drying them with a hair dryer to see if this will help. Hope this helps...please post back for further assistance.

if you can her it clicking that is a good thing can you see the blue spark between the electrode and the burner? some times cleaning knocks these little electrodes out of line or plugs the tiny holes directly in line with the spark ( try a tooth pick to clean out the holes) Good Luck

Amana stove top burners click, and gas comes out, but won't ignite. It's a self cleaning ARG7200, about 11 or 12 years old. Oh, and can I lift this top? I'm used to doing that with old pilot-light...

A weak erratic spark from one or more electrode usually indicates a bad spark module. No spark from one of the electrodes while the others work properly usually indicates a bad electrode. Inspect the porcelain of the electrode for cracks, chips or burn marks. If there are any, the electrode should be replaced. If one of the burner knobs is turned to the light position and nothing happens, but all the others function correctly, the spark ignition switch for that one burner is likely bad. The switch can be taken out of the system and checked with an ohmmeter. It should close for continuity at the light position only.

Pilot on GE stove keeps popping non-stop

As far a "popping" do you mean the igniter on the cook top "clicking"? Did you clean the range and use too much water? If water gets into the igniter switches they will short out and constantly click. Also if the polarity at the electrical plug you can get what is called "ghost spark" so make sure that the polarity is correct at the electrical outlet. Each gas control valve has a switch that turns on the igniter when the knob is in a certain position and they are all wired in a sequence. One of those switches may be shorted out or have a loose wire(range dis-assembly required to inspect). Do you visually see a spark at the electrodes of the burners or do the burners ignite? If you cannot see the spark then there may be a grounding issue and possible loose wire.

I have a 30" Viking range with a top burner that continues to click and spark after ignition. I understand that this is a sensor issue...........Is this something that the lay person can resolve on their...

If you only have one burner that clicks when in use then what you have to do is clean the sensor ( the proper name is electrode ) at the top where the little medal disk is with something abrasive. Over time the electrode gets a film on it and prevents it from sending a signal back to the spark module to tell it a flame is present. If it continues to click then replace the electrode. Hope this helps

GE profile glass stove top

You got one or more of the burner switches wet. (It usually happens when you wash the knobs and water stays in the holes until you replace it on the shaft) If just water they may work after a day or two. try using a hair dryer, Keep it at least 12 inches away. If oven cleaner or other chemical got inside switches they may need to be replaced. If you can't dry them out. Disconnect the wires from all but one switch at a time and see which one/s need to be replaced. Sometimes the electric part of the switch can be seperated from the gas part and replaced seperately. DO NOT LEAVE THE STOVE PLUGGED IN until you fix this problem. There have been reports of fires started from this electrical problem. You could also burn out the spark ignightor. The fire problems have been mostly with Maytag/Jenn air products but my whirlpool blew a fuse and shot sparks when this happened to me. I just replacet the whole cooktop as my gas valves were one piece units and way to expensive to repair.
