Hello. The electrodes rely upon electricity to function, not gas. Also, the manual on/off must have gas supplied before you can test it. regards, Joe

Cooktop burner do not ihnite


Hi hgodoy2 - Is the electronic igniter aligned properly? Ensure that tip of spark igniter is aligned with metal point or "nib" located on underside of burner cap after the burner mounting screws have been tightened. (Not all burners having mounting screws). When the burner control knob is set to the "LITE" position do the igniters spark? Can gas be heard or smelled coming from the burners when the control number is turned on? However, if you smell gas, I highly recommend turning the unit and the gas off if you can reach it and contact your gas provider. The range itself does not have a switch or regulator to relight it. Keep in mind that it may be experiencing an issue with the spark module, electrodes, wiring or EOC.

Kitchenaid gas ccoktop electronic ignition continues to click


We called in an appliance repair technician. He said during the cleaning process of the cooktop, when the control knobs had been removed to thoroughly clean the cooktop, some cleaning fluid or water or moisture got into the ignition switch panel under the cooktop. Letting it dry for 24 hours should fix the problem and this appears to have done that.

Gas ignitors continue to spark every 5 seconds in off position


try unplugging the unit over night, itspossible that by you cleaning the tops, the electrodes got wet, falsley sparkin, when the water dries out it should stop, and no not dangerous in any way, only annoying to listen to

GE ZGU650 EM1BG Gas Cooktop


On any range I've seen with electronic ignitors, the valves have a position that closes a contact to turn on the ignitor and manually moving the dial to the 'Hi' setting opens the contact again and the ignitor ceases to spark.
You don't mean the ignitors run even when the burners are off, do you?
I'm surprised to read that this has been happening for 'years,' the transformer for the ignitors must be really tough to withstand that and it doesn't sound like an electrode or transformer problem but rather a contact not opening as it should or you not advancing the control past the ignite point.

Romvoing the top of my Whirlpool Cooktop


first thing is the spark module(ignitor-- your referring to) is probably good and your electrodes are damaged. more then likely the problem. when you turn on one burner they should all spark( 1 module controls all 5 electrodes) so lets check that, first. when you turn on any/all burners do you at least hear clicking??. theres a switch under each **** that turns on the spark(erhaps one of them is bad. think of the electrodes as spark plugs on a car, they spark the same way, ck to see that they are clean(free from rust and carbon build up).using emory cloth or a woman's finger nail file try "sanding" down to a shiny surface the very tip of the electrode protruding out of the burner head.look for cracks in the porcelin housing around the electrodes this will lead to miss fires of the electrodes

Ignition stays constantly on, How to fix it or shut it off


its a gas cooktop it has to be plugged in somewhere op e the cabinet and unplug it. possible that the electrodes got wet and click from a false sense of continuity, after being unplugged overnight that will sometimes be enough. you also might have a bad start switch on one of hte burners causing the machine to click automatically. try unplugging over night first
