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.

Our GE Profile gas oven exploded in the back while turned off. This was preceded by the igniter clicking on it's own. It wouldn't stop. Then it stopped, and then there was a loud explosiong


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.

Turn on gas oven; it lights, big poof/pop comes; then continues to light and heat properly. How do I stop it from popping? The pop is scary!! GE Spectra Gas Stove/Oven


Hello,

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 electric igniter continues to click (ignite) even after the stove top burner is 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

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.

My GE profile gas range keeps clicking all the time, this happens right after we have cleaned the gas range. And usually it goes away after a few hours. But this time around it refuses to go and it is very...


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.

The oven of GE Profile range simply stopped igniting


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.

GE gas range igniter continues to spark, won't shut off.


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.

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.
