All five ignitions clicking rapidly

After cleaning the hob,all the five ignitions started igniting periodically for approx 5-8 mins. We waited and then switched on all the burners, which are working ok. The ignition clicking has stopped for now but my concern is that what was the cause and also is it safe to use?

Yes is safe you probably got the ignighters switch's wet if one is wet will cause all to fire after awhile they dry and return to normal

Bosch five ring hob ignition


It can be for another model if this is the ignition unit. Please confirm with your supplier before it can be tired as they might allow you to exchange if this order was misplaced. Please quote the part number or model of the oven.

I have a Neff 5 burner hob. The middle burner will not stay lit. A small amount of gas runs around the grey gas dispenser while trying to light the hob with the igniter depressed. It then fizzles out...


Some gas appliances have a thermal couple. it could be dirty at its base connection. If possible clean that area with alcohol

always unplug electricity before attempting to repair on any electrical appliance .

Miele Gas hob KM326G 2 burners won't stop clicking


Hello Leighvz,
The rings around the burners should be cleaned periodically. Each one has a series of holes to let the gas come out and have to be set back perfectly or else you will continually have this problem. You can clean with regular dish soap an water and a sponge or rag.
Also, If you put a pot or pan on the burner and it is too large it will cut off oxygen to the burner causing your clicking. The clicking only occurs when the oxygen supply is not enough. Hope this helps

Hob ignition switch keeps on clicking.


Hi
Glad to Help you!!
Take the knob off, them remove the cover that housed the switches, OK, Now, Look at the switch that is continiusly clicking and it will have two wires goin onto it, remove these wires and just lift the sending unit, and inspect it for water, grease etc ect....clean and dry and put back on and try again it should work, if it does not work, then just get a replacement one, they are not expensive, I just replaced two on my Jenn-Air myself and it cost me $25.00.
Hope this will help!!

Gas Hob constant ignition clicking


Had the same problem. All five burners were continuously igniting, after my wife had given the stove a clean. Turned off the power, removed the five knobs and corresponding rubber rings, and used a hair dryer on the five holes where the knobs were for about ten minutes in total. Hey presto, when I turned the power back on, the constant igniting had stopped. Thank you all. I love the internet :-)
