Question about Ovens
Hi, i had the problem sometimes early this year. My 6-month old GE range/stove top was being cleaned by a cleaning lady and suddenly, the igniters started clickng nonstop. I had to shut down the circuit breakers. I discovered the problem, and it seemed clear that the "spark switches" got moisture on them. The best site which described this is: http://www.appliance411.com/archive/25012_ge_gas_cooktop_not_working_.shtml
Somepeople said you could dry them with a blow dryer, and others said youneed to replace these switches (which is not too expensive, but takessome time/skill). I was hoping against this, so I tried something alongthose lines: I removed all the parts of the stovetop - the grill, the"cap", the metal funky piece, etc. until there was nothing but thesurface of the stove and holes going down to the igniter area. Then, Itook an electric fan and kept it pointed at the stovetop all nightlong. After about 10 hours, I turned the circuit breaker back on. Nomore clicking! And the burners all work! So, I think I essentially didthe "hair dryer" solution, but did it more long term without having towatch the clock to see if I did it long enough. Anyway, I don'tnormally post these things, but this discovery really helped me and Ihope it helps someone else!
