I had the same thing happen to my cooktop. in order to replace the igniters you will have to wemove the cooktop from the counter, then you will find 4 screws on the front edge and one on each side edge that you will have to remove. Then you will need a torx screwdriver to remove each of the burners (2 screws per burner) then you can remove the top giving access to the igniters. Ours caught fire when some milk got spilled in one of the control knob holes shorting out the hot lead to ground (it is the grey wire looping from each of the igniter switches). Obviously they are not "sealed " that well, or this wouldn't have happened. I now just need to locate a source for the new parts. In the mean time I guess we will use a manual striker to ignite the stove with, or bypass the burned igniter. Hope this helps

All 4 electrodes spark when only one is turned on


Electric gas igniters sometimes get stuck in one position causing a clicking sound. The clicking sound that you hear is the electric arc that is pulsing from the igniter conductor (wire) to ground (the gas burner). It receives power from the electrical outlet that the stove is plugged into.
Residue from food and sometimes cleaning products may be preventing the igniter from producing a spark (Arc) to the base of the burner. This is a common problem that occurs when the stove has been cleaned or food is allowed to build up. Make sure that the igniter and the burner base are clean and dry. This will help with proper operation. Oven cleaner and a small tooth brush may be used to accomplish this. Another problem with ignition may occur if you have too little (touching) or too much space between the igniter and the base of the burner; it will prevent the burner from igniting. You should only have a little more space than the thickness of a nickel between the burner base and the igniter. A good "blue" arc from the igniter to the burner base is optimal. If this doesn’t work, you may need to replace the electric igniter module. Good luck.

Gas not igniting


aknot, make sure each burner cap has a good ground to the burner. You can use some light sandpaper to scrub them. Where the burner fits around the ignitor is a small orfice. Use a paper clip or small sharp object to clean out the orfice. Try this first. Catriver..post back.
