Hi Mike,

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.

We spilled liquid into the gas burner by accident and it won't stop clicking. We can't find how or where to unplug it? GE PROFILE GAS STOVETOP RANGE


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.

Hope this helps but if not just let me know.

Have a four burner gas GE Profile cooktop. How do


The igniter module is working fine. One of the switches (which are on each valve shaft) is stuck or shorted out. Pull a wire off each one at a time to determine which one is bad. Careful! 120 volts to each wire. Also, this can happen after you spill water into the valve area, if that sounds right, let it dry out.

Igniters will not stop clicking.


Hi


Thanks for using FIxYa.The igniter doesn't stop clicking due to a short inside the igniter circuit or due to moisture present on the ignition switch.Turn off the gas supply immediately and also unplug it from the mains power. Now take a blower or your hair dryer and blow hot air over the igniter. Also check for the following troubleshooting steps---


1) The gap between the igniter and the burner base is too large. *Should be approximately the thickness of two dimes.

2) Soiled igniter or burner base.

The above can be tested by switching the suspected burner with a known operating burner.

3) Loose wiring connections at the igniter, the grounding strap, or spark module.

4) Broken or pinched igniter wire between the burner and module.

Both of the above are physical inspections under the main top.

5) The module may have a week coil, which is not providing sufficient voltage to ignite the gas.

Even after performing these steps the igniter doesn't stop clicking then you need to replace the spark module.

Please do rate the solution and revert for further assistance.


Thanks

Ignition will not stop clicking...


Did you clean your stove recently? If the switches under the burner knobs get wet they will cause the burners to click. Unplug the unit or shut off the power for a day. Once the swithes dry, it should work normal.

Check the compressor.
Unplug for 15-20 min. plug it back in and listen for the compressor to start. You will have to be behind the ref to listen and make sure you hear the compressor start and not just a fan running. If you hear a clicking noise then the compressor relay is bad.

My GE Profile gas cook top was just cleaned. Now the starter keeps clicking and the only way we can stop it is to unplug the appliance. As soon as we plug it back in it continues to click.


if you have a multi meter you can figure this out. check to see if you have continuity through the switches while they are in the off position and unplugged from the spark mod. if you do replace the wire harness. if you dont replace the spark mod.

GE profile gas stove igniter don't stop igniting


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.
