Electric spark for gas is non stop after cleaning

Hello,

I have an old GE gas range top. I just cleaned the burners and around the burners. Now there is a spark, like the same sound when you light the burners, that is clicking systematically on each burner. It has not let up. Is there anything simple I can do to rectify this?

Thank you

    Hi there,



    It has been about five hours and it is still not working. However, who knows, maybe tomorrow, if that is the cause.



    I apreciate your input.



    Thanks,

HI I am having the same problem and I think it is caused by water getting into the burner knob switches. I have just unplugged the stove and am going to wait for it to dry out.

GE stove JGSP28 igniter has been clicking non-stop for the last 2weeks. Blow drying the burners has slowed down the clicking to every 5sec. Front two burners seem to be clicking at the same time while...


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 make need to replace the electric igniter module. Good luck.

Electric spark starter on one of the burner runs continuously


check the spark head on that particular burner first for dirt,they all need to be clean to recognize the flame after ignition and sense the flame to shut off the sparker module after ignition,and if not you will need to replace the spark module that fires the sparkers itself,but try cleaning sparkers and underneath where the wires connect to the sparkers first for contamination,its cheaper than starting to replace parts

Range top ignighters sparking


One of your "switches" to your burners is shorting causing unit to spark when in the off mode, or, you may have a bug problem, bugs have made their way into the spark module.

1: if no bug problem, disconnect stove from electricity, lift top up, remove all of the single connections to each switch to top burners(make sure they don't have any bare wires touching the frame), then plug unit back in, if still sparking then replace module.

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.

Burner won't light


Take the pot support and the burner cover off and clean all the slots out with a toothpick. Carbon builds up over time and the gas doesn't flow over the spark. Do not light until fully reassembled.

You will have to check GE. With a model this old, it will be hard to find a replacement.

Electric starter for Electric stove


I think you mean you have a gas range with electric ignition. When you turn a burner to light, all burners should spark. The most common problem is boil overs have happened on those two burners. Take the burner head off for sealed burner ranges and clean them out. For non sealed burners, the little holes toward the center side of the burners need to be cleaned. You don't have a model listed, so I can't be real specific.

Electric spark for gas range burner is non stop


Turning any knob starts the spark via a switch behind each which should disengage when the (any) knob is turn further.
One of your switches is stuck.

I think you should be able to remove the range-top for access and find the offending switch.
It is probably gummy from a spill and is no longer in solid contact with the cam that operates it.

A solvent/lubricant such as WD-40 sprayed on the plunger of the switch once you can see it and operating the knob back and forth should free it up.

It might be wise to turn off the gas supply while tinkering with the range - blow your house away and the range won't matter. :-(

Gas oven range


The flame acts as a conductor when the burner is on. Clean the burner and make sure it's got good grounding. Clean the ignitor too. Re-position the ignitor to make sure it is inside the flame.
