Question about GE Cooktops

Open Question

Stovetop started making ''popping'' noise after it was turned off

After using the stove top to cook dinner, about 10-15 minutes later the stove started ''popping'' or clicking. It is the same click/pop that occurs when you turn on a burner. Upon closer examination, each time the pop sound occurred each burner on the stove top would click it it was trying to start, turn on. It was happening like every couple of minutes.

We have turned the gas off, and the clicking was continuing. So we unplugged it and left it that was overnight. This morning we plug it back in and no click/popping for like 20 minutes, so we turned the gas back on. again nothing. Each of the burner start up ok.

What happened? Is this ''safe''? did something short out? Do we need to get a new one?

Suggestions Ideas?

SOURCE: Clicking noise on cooktop even when all burners ignite

I have a viking gas cooktop. The ignitor on one of my front burners wouldn't stop clicking even after the flame ignited. I swapped that ignitor with the ignitor from a back burner, expecting that the problem was with the ignitor and that the back burner would start to click incessantly, but at least I'd have my favorite front burner for use. Instead, the front burner was then only clicking 50% of the time and the back burner was fine, suggesting the problem was related to the burner not the ignitor. I pulled the front ignitor a bit away from the burner and now it is working normally. Hope this helps.

SOURCE: Ignition sparking on its own with GE mongram gas stove top.

the sparking is one of the switches under the knobs shorted you may be able to open the top and take a switch off 1 at a time and you can figure out what one is shorted.or you can just change all of them.
to stop this you may be able to just unplug the cooktop from under the top.if you unplug the cooktop you should be able to light the burners with a match.

SOURCE: Wolf electric induction stovetop

We had the same problem with the Wolf induction stovetop. They came out and changed out a part and have never had that problem again. They said there was a problem on all units that came out earlier this year (2008) so if you are one of those, you should call them and have them change that out. But... I am also very frustrated about the inability to fry things on this unit. I don't fry very oftehn but it gives very unsatisfactory results, constantly shutting the heat off and then back on. Hmmm yumm.... soggy rare ahi- uncrispy chicken- anybody?? HELP!

I have a frigidaire ceramic cooktop. It started making a "popping noise" and there was a burned smell, but the stove was not on. I had to turn off the breaker to stop this.


Either there's ashort in the stove top or the wiring going to the appliance. Sorry but I would have to see it to see exactly how to fix the problem. the top needs to be removed and inspect the wiring to it. Test the top with a voltmeter forshorts.

You must replace those controls. Cleaning or loosening them up would be temporary at best and the next time they stick it could be in the open position. Safety first...Eric

Wolf electric induction stovetop


I had that happen once and it went off after a day. I'd suggest maybe turning off the breaker and wait a few minutes and turn it back on. But here's my problem for you. I got the 30" model in March, 2008. The problem I've had is that the induction units cool down and start cycling when I'm cooking something like bacon, or pork chops etc., ie. where you're trying to brown something or sear. They cycle up and down every couple of minutes, so its really annoying. They work fine if I'm boiling water for pasta or sauces, etc. Have you experienced this. I've been working with the dealer and the company and they say its a "software" problem, but they've haven't taken them off the market. I use All-Clad stainless steel pans so that's not the issue. Thanks for your comments.

No heat


You probably still have cartridge fuses in your fusebox. This sounds like only one blew. This will let the lights and other 110 volt things work just fine. If you have circuit breakers it probably needs to be replaced. There are no internal fuses that involve the whole stove.

Spark continuously on


If you have recently cleaned it, you may have gotten moisture behind the knobs and into the spark switches. Be very careful not to let moisture get behind knobs. Very dangerous. If this is the case, they may dry out themselves and stop sparking. If not you may need to replace a spark switch behind knob.
