Ticking sound does not go off even after knob is turned to high or medium
Hello, Our 2 rear knobs igniters did not work before in the LITE position. So we used to use one of the front knobs to ignite the rear ones. Gradually, the spark started ticking when we were cooking and right now the ticking goes off as soon as we connect the electrical supply and stays on.
Re: Ticking sound does not go off even after knob is...
A lot of questions on this site but very few answers. I have the same problem. After an overflow from a pot, the 2 front burners now won't light one rear one lights but won't stop sparking and the littlest one is fine.

Try using a pair of pliers and pushing down as you turn first counter clockwise as if you are turning the gas on then back clockwise till it won't turn anymore. If it's still trying to ignite see if its the oven or make sure that its the burner that's trying to ignite . I''m not a appliance person just a home maker so if it were me and none of those things work turn off the gas to the stove unplug the power to the stove and call the gas company or appliance center. One thing though some of those type of knobs are two parts like they have to be pressed down to turn on the gas. Or the have to be set in a certain position to engage the ignite switch. If you know a little about wiring look at the switch and check the wires. But make sure before you do anything that there is no gas on.!!!
(1) Get Naval Jelly (Rust dissolver) and apply on the igniter and than see if everything is fine.
(2) Check the connections from the knob to the burner. Probably have a leak. Replace the wire from the knob to the burner.
take out the control knobs. clean the grease and food partilcles if any using hot water and dish washing liquid .if the washer under the knob is stuck, put it properly and put the control knobs back into it carefully
When you turn the burner knob on does the igniter click and turn off on it's own when the flame ignites? If it does then it has flame rectification. That means it can sense when the flame is on. Or does it click when the knob is in the light position and not stop until you move the burner knob? Then this is standard ignition. If it is standard ignition it sounds like it is the igniter switch built into the burner knob might be defective. Are you able to turn on any burner knob and when they are in the igniter position do all the electrodes spark or just the burner that you are turning on? If they all come on then they are wired in a series. If they are wired in a series do you get a spark at the electrode of the problem igniter? If so you can turn on one of the other burners to ignition position then while it is clicking turn on the problem burner to light it. If the cooktop uses flame rectification then there may be a problem with the switch built into the burner knob or the flame rectification sensor for that burner might be bad.
Sounds like the switch electric sending unit needs to be Ither cleaned and dry good or replced. It's not hard at all, They are located under the knob switches, you will have to remove the knobs and the top cover, they look like a small square box wit a hole in the middle with two wires on the sides, just unplug the wires and lift the box off the switch rod. cleane them and dry them good and put them back.......that should do it.....Good Luck

Alien, one of your burner switches either got wet or shorted out. These switches are located on the burner valve itself. Sometimes you can take a hair dryer, pull the knobs of the control valve and dry out the switch. If this doesn't work, more than likley one of the switches gone bad. Catriver...post back.
