Re: GE Profile - One of the igniters continually...
The Dial/Swiitch Has A Fault, Or The Igniter Electrode is Touching, or too Close To The Contact Area.
Try Turning the faulty switch, left or right Gently.
Could be grease/dust arcing the Contact.
Broken Or uninsulated Wire Under The Ignitor, arcing against metal surface.

Luckily, gas ovens are still reasonably priced. It sounds like the oven control wasn't completely shut off. That is why you heard the igniter clicking. If any gas was leaking into the oven, it eventually got to the ignitable level. I would probably just replace it, if it isn't under warranty.
The reason it "POOFS" is because the igniter is slightly weak and some gas enters before it gets lit,this will continue and get worse. To resolve it the igniter would need to be replaced and then as soon as the gas enters it would light it right away without collecting before it lit.
The switches for the ignitor are in the control knobs for turning on the gas...does the unit do it on all burners or just 1...if just 1 then the control switch assy will need to either be cleaned or replaced
Won't stop clicking? When? Is it clicking constantly or only when you attempt to ignite a burner? Normally the clicking can be traced to the electronic ignition that activates when you turn the burner on.
Regardless if you need to turn it off but do not have easy access to the back of the unit, you can always shut it off at the circuit breaker located in the breaker/fuse box.
You are getting water into the range when cleaning causing the igniter switch to short out. The reason why it goes away after a few hours is because the water finally dries up. When cleaning the range refrain from using so much water. You will need to leave the range unplugged until the water dries up again.
If it is a ge it would have a glow bar ignitor, either a flat rectangle shaped or a round ignitor. That is want the problem is 95% of the time. It is pretty easy to do. The floor of the stove will come right out and it probably has two screws in the back corners you can see. Remove them and the floor will lift out and you can see the burner and the ignitor.
Often times, just leaving the range unplugged for a time will solve the problem, which is most often caused by water or a cleaning agent getting into an igniter switch behind a burner knob. After the switch drys out it usually starts working again. In the mean time, you can still use the burners by lighting them manually with one of those long lighters, but you will not be able to use the oven or broiler without electricity. If the range continues to spark after being left unplugged for more than a day or two, you will have to determine which switch behind the burner knobs is causing the problem. Please don't bother rating, as anything but a Fix-Ya will lower my score. Thanks.
take a look at the igniter located in the center of two burners. clean the gap with a stiff brush between the eletrode and the upper plate. the distance is preset at the factory. you may have enough buildup to close the gap enough to trigger the igniter.
Our GE range Profile, the igniter continues to spark with it on off. All four burners igniter contiues to spark. We have it unpluged at the moment, but it seems like it needs to reset or something. Will it stop when we plug it back in? I am not at home is why I ask this question, or I would plug it is an find out. Any help?
