Hi does the igniter stay on if the gas is not alight or is it only when its alight. if this is the case then you probably going to need to replace the ignition lighter switch as these often are the cause of the problem usually due to grease sometimes removing all components and cleaning can resolve the problem.
The main problem with doing this is its not easy to get to the switch as you will need to remove alot of the oven to get to the switch and im not sure how yours would come undone as mine is different oven all together but as mine had same problem this is your most likely cause

Nothing bad can happen if the ignitors stay on but it can be annoying. I remember reading something about this I will try to look it up again.

SOURCE: Problem with getting burner to light.

All my ignitors spark when I turn one of them on. I'v been told it is normal. I had a problem before and the tech that replace the ignitor said the issues is with alignment. Try to rotate the burner a bit left or right and see if it fixes it.

SOURCE: both right burner ignitors do not spark while both

Electric gas igniters sometimes get stuck in one position causing a clicking sound. The clicking sound that you hear is the electric arc that is pulsing from the igniter conductor (wire) to ground (the gas burner). It receives power from the electrical outlet that the stove is plugged into.
Residue from food and sometimes cleaning products may be preventing the igniter from producing a spark (Arc) to the base of the burner. This is a common problem that occurs when the stove has been cleaned or food is allowed to build up. Make sure that the igniter and the burner base are clean and dry. This will help with proper operation. Oven cleaner and a small tooth brush may be used to accomplish this. Another problem with ignition may occur if you have too little (touching) or too much space between the igniter and the base of the burner; it will prevent the burner from igniting. You should only have a little more space than the thickness of a nickel between the burner base and the igniter. A good “blue” arc from the igniter to the burner base is optimal. If this doesn’t work, you may need to replace the electric igniter module. Good luck.

My stove lights very slow with a low flame. Should the igniter stay on after it lights oven


Yes the ignitor stays on even after the burner is lit. The ignitor is wired in series with the oven valve. It sounds like the oven valve isn't opening all the way. A new ignitor should solve this problem. The old igniter builds up resistance and doesn't let the correct voltage through to the oven valve for it to open properly.

The oven will not heat to desired temperature


Hi,
If yhe burner is staying lit and jusy goes off and on normally then check the thermostat. It is probably going bad...
If the burner is cycleing and not staying on long enough to heat the oven then your ignitor is going bad...

The oven pilot does not light. The broiler will not work. The only thing that does is the light. GE XL44 range. The burners light and the pilots stay lit.


    If you have standing pilots, make sure the pilot for the oven/broiler is lit as well.  When you turn the thermostat up to call for heat, you should see the pilot get larger. That larger pilot flame heats a hydraulic sensor and opens the main burner valve.

    The ignition keeps on sparking after the burner is lit.


    How old oof a unit is it? The burners switches when on will operate ignitors for all burners no matter which switch is "turned on". Usually when units get older these switches on the most "often used" burners will stick and stay "connected" then all ignitors will continue to spark this is also true if switches accidentally get wet with spillage or water till they dry out. No danger though because jsut because ignitor is sparking doesnt mean gas is being released, gas is only released when valves are turned on

    Ignitor works but stays lit!


    That is the way it works. As long as the burner is on the ignitor will also be on. Want to see why?

    Ignitor won't shut off


    The Viking manual says that an ignitor that continues to try to light even after the burner has been lit indicates improper grounding, and that an electrician should be consulted.

    Perhaps you could try to replace the ignitor, and see if that fixes the problem?

    I have a similar age, 6-burner 36" rangetop.

    Ignitors keep firing by themselves after my aunt cleaned them 24 hours ago After she did the major cleaning of the stove I used the oven and it worked fine. I lit a burner (Probably front?) and the left...


    Apparently there was a water spill around the burner control knob and in the burner itself; We ran the burner to create heat and then turned it off and let the water dry out and evaporate from the burner and igniter area.
