Question about GE Profile JGP636 Gas Cooktop
GE gas cooktop ignitor does not click . where is the ignitor located? How to get it for repair?
There is no "ignitor" as you would find in an oven or dryer. There is a sparkmodule that many times goes bad after 5 to 8 years. It is a plastic box about 4 to 6 " x 2" wide and wil have 3 to 5 wires or 3 to 5 terminal connector points on it. remember to unplug the range top fromwall electric. these units are not difficult to replace; they are not repairable, you have to buy a new one.

Most ignitors are located under the burner cap and you can get or order the part at many different parts places like marcone, apwagner both these have 1800 numbers and can mail you what you need within 24hrs if they have it in stock

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.
