Brown Cook Top (24 Inch - TTL03-3 Model)

Flame shooting out on stem next to valve. Mean while igniter continued to click. Conditions were that all burners were turned off. Clicking sound began and then flames appeared near stem. I was in the process of cleaning the stove with a wet rag.

Can repairs be made? What procedure should be followed and where can parts be purchased? Should a novice attempt such repair?

Most of the time when I come out for a service call with this problem, it is usually because the burner cap is not seated properly on the base. Look at the burner and make sure there are no uneven gaps. Most of the time you will have to rotate the burner cap till a notch or pin "seats" into place. Most burner caps just sit on the bases, and so they get knocked off or moved when the cooktop is cleaned or installed. Hope this helps!

After igniting the cooktop, the cooktop continue to click as if it is still trying to ignite the flame. The cooktop starts fine but it continues to click.


its probably these switches that sit under the gas valve controls. One for each one. They can go faulty and stick on. Make sure these are the exact one for your model before deciding on anything.

One of the burners ignition will not turn off - it continually is sparking - i have to turn off the elec supply to stop the ignition ? any ideas


Hi and welcome to FixYa, I am Kelly. On the burner your having problems with the ignition control switch located in front of the gas control vale on the stem has failed. These are cheesy little switches that are thin ceramic with nothing but 2 strips of copper inside them. One piece is fixed and the other piece is movable by the ceramic switch cam. If the movable copper arm or fixed copper strip gets bent the ignition will not shut off. Also if the ceramic cam of the switch fractures it will cause the switch to stay actuated. The gas valve has to be disconnected and removed to change the switch on most units. The wires in the switch have to be unlocked by inserting a jewelers screwdriver into the holes in the switch body to release the wires. These switches are common to most every gas cook top models no matter the brand. Without your model number I can not provide you with the manufacturers replacement part number. Change the burner ignition switch on the front of the gas valve for the burner with the problem and it will work fine.
Thanks for choosing FixYa,
Kelly

My ge monogram stove top burner( model zgu366h)continues to ignite. even after the flame is lit


If you are saying the clicking continues you must move the burner knob past the LITE position.
If it continues clicking with the knob past the LITE position the ignitor switch behind the knob is bad.

My ignitor on my ge cooktop keeps clicking slowly in off mode


As it relates to 5 burner gas cooktop Model Number JGP 963SEJ1SS
First - Ignite the flame then reduce the flame to between low and medium.  If the igniter continues to click, you most likely have a contact switch issue related to the problem burner.  
Unplug the cook top and turn off the gas.  After the gas is turned off, disconnect the gas line.  
Remove the cook top.  

Unscrew and Remove ALL of the burner bases by lifting them up.  The ceramic igniters may be difficult to remove but they will come loose if worked out slowly.  
Pull of the wire connected to the igniter. 
Remove to cook top top plate from the base, exposing the internal gas valves and wiring.
All of the burners are wired in parallel.   Lift off and unsnap the casing of the problem igniter switch.  The repair may require something as simple as, 1- cleaning the contact strips, or 2- slightly bending the non stationary contact strip to keep it from coming in contact with the stationary contact when in the off position, or 3- replacing the switch. 
Unless you comfortable and understand how electric systems and switches work, this is a job for a qualified repair person.

Extra low burner that won't ignite


Lowly what the potentior does is turn on the burner control system. When you turn on a normal burner you are opening a gas valve and closing a switch to generate a spark. Thus gas flow to the burner and spark. On the extra low simmer burner there is a electric solenoid between the burner head and the gas valve. this has to open as well for gas to flow. What the potentior does is signal the simmer control what level of flame you are requesting and telling the spark module to generate a spark. Once you go to the exlow setting the potentior tells the simmer control what level of heat and will cycle the flame on and off. So when the burner knob was between low and extra low, the flame would cycle on and off. You have to seperate the top section of the cooktop from the burner box to change the potentior for it sits on top of the gas valve for that burner.

No Ignition


Dirt. Spilled oil, grease, milk etc. act as isolator and prevent contact between burner and casing (mass). You need to clean up burners, scrub all the dirt and make sure their seats are cleaned too (brass elements below burners).
