You got water/liquid in the control switch,most the time you have to replace the switch,and most cook tops require the whole string of them be changed at once.That is all the switches are tied into /pre wired together.

Front end noises

Hello John Barker,

Welcome to FIXYA

Front End is a pretty TYPICALLY a very complicated area on vehicles...
Particularly now the 4 WHEEL and FRONT WHEEL drive vehicles become more popular...

Everything from loose lug nut, wheel bearings, CV-joint,
Half-Shafts (lateral wheel drive shafts (formerly axles)),
Bushings, shocks, brake calipers, worn friction pads...
tie-rod ends stabilizer bushings...

and we haven't even started with all the Glorious
noises engines, pumps, idlers, cams, lifters rods, fans, alternators... bubbling hoses... and clogged radiators...
or trapped cats under the hood could cause...

To be PRECISE... Would greatly reduce the massive VOLUME of information needed to satiate such a BROAD CATEGORY as "FRONT END NOISES"...

Would that it were actually posed as a question (question mark & all)Finding it "difficult" to believe the "FRONT END NOISES" was really alone, I went back to see if there was YOUR history of questions... Where one might presume that we are actually capable of being expected to INTUITIVELY know what vehicle you are getting "FRONT END NOISES" from.

The QUALITY of your question ... depth, make , model, year... number and location of DRIVE WHEELS ...

Would GREATLY improve the quality of the answer...
Short of that you should get it in the air... check for "loose-ness" (
every where), "brown iron oxide" and "shiny spots"..

Check for play in ALL Ball Joints (if equipped)...
And for future reference it would be EASIER on your VOLUNTEER if you improved the DETAIL and quality of your question... included make, mode & year... and tossed on a question mark.

Recent history & circumstance & situation would ALL be really cool. Noises like thump, repetitive tick, tick, tick... or squeaking when doing right turns
... (for example).

Hope this helps.

I have a HotPoint electric stove (don't know the model number sorry) and the front right burner makes a rattling sound when i turn it on. It's about 10 or so ticks in quick succession and then a low...

metal expands when it is heated. There is a chance that replacing the burner would stop the noise till the standoff wears out again. Also the burner wells have inserts that the burner standoffs rest on. Replacing those might help. There is no danger present.

I was just cleaning my cooktop and now I'm getting a constant ticking noise. I turned all burners on, left them on a short time, turned them off and it's still making the fast ticking noise. Is...

what that clicking is , is the ignitor trying to light the burner, its electronic, and if it continues it will eventually burn out, more than likely what happened is that moisture from cleaning got into the knob and control for that specific burner, and needs to dry out before it burns out, , you can try turning that one burner on and off a few times o see if that shuts it down, if it doesn't,, unplug the unit, and wait until it dries out on its own

My gas glass cooktop keeps clicking. I unplugged the it and left it overnight. When I replugged it the next day it still continues to make the clicking sound. It is driving me nuts! Two days ago my...

That was a really smart idea to unplug your cooktop and let it dry out. Many times that fixes the problem, however, if the problem returns as in your case it is time to replace the wire harness. Their are 4x switches associated and directly under the 4x burner knobs. Moisture can case a short and send a false single to ignite the burner when nothing has been turned on. Take a look at this picture from the link. Number 12 is the wire harness that has failed.
You can purchase this switch by typing in the model number on a appliance parts website and doing a search.
If you are handy here are some general steps to remove and replace the bad igniter/switch harness.
  1. Take off all the grates and burner caps
  2. Unplug the unit and turn off the gas line
  3. Un-screw the 2x screws on each burner
  4. Remove burners and knobs
  5. Lift up on the cooktop cover separate it from the burner box
  6. Pop off the wire harness switches one by one and observe the way it comes off
  7. Place the new wire harness into place and snap in switches then connect wires
  8. Reinstall all components
Fasten everything down and retest unit. This job should take around 45min to 1hr to complete.

I have a ge profile gas range and the burners are making a constant clicking noise and spark. The only way to stop it is by either unplugging it or turning the power off to it

Under each gas control is a switch that will turn on the spark module when rotated to the light position. One or more of these switches has failed. Some models these switches are individually replaceable, others the switch is an assembly of all four.
