Brand new oven wont stop clicking as if trying to ignite
I bought this oven 1 week ago. I cut the power for few minutes to my kitchen. Now I hear a contant "click" the electric pilot light keeps going off.
I turned everything on and it all is working properly but the contant click is driving me crazy.

A few months ago I lost one igniter on the left front burner. It clicks and gas flows but wont ignite.Now when I turn on the left back burner, the gas still flows but I hear clicking on the right side, not from that burner. It wont light either.
You need to give more detail---- brand. model, age, gas or electric, speed or repetitiveness of the sound; is it a click or a tick sound ? I will assume it is gas. Is the sound the same as when you start a top burner and you hear the tick as it is lighting? Or, is it a click the is slower and you hear it from somewhere inside the oven ? It could be the metal body expanding as the outer parts of the oven get hotter with long hour usage. I n the is case, there is nothing to do or to worry about. Does the sound stop when you turn off the oven or does it continue for a while. Naybe you can resubmit with better info to get a more precise diagnosis. Wait to hear from you, Macgivor.
I assume the oven has worked at one point? Does the broil still work?
This is my experience with my White-Westinghouse gas stove: The igniter bar is toast. There is 1 igniter bar each for the bake and broil (1 on top, 1 below). This is instead of a pilot light. Its an element that heats up to be hot enough to ignite the gas. If it doesn't get hot enough, the gas does not turn on and therefore not heat.
I went to my store and asked about this. "90+% of the time, that's the problem" So I bought a replacement and installed it myself. Problem fixed. Just had to undo a few screws to get at the bar, then connect the new one's wiring under the stove using marettes & some electrical tape, but the rest back together and that was it. I think the part cost me about $60-80 here in Winnipeg a few years ago. But it would've been at least that just for the guy to show up to look at the stove, never mind fixing it.
