    None of the igniters were working and I replaced the igniter Module, 2 weeks ago they all work now, but the front igniter fires randomly by itself about once every 10 seconds it's been 2 weeks and is becoming annoying

Try unplugging and leavig it sit overnight nmot plugged in. sometimes grease or water from cleanig gets down into the electrodes and will contunie to spark untill the water/grease dries up. nothing to worry about safety wise, its more of a nusscience that anythin, if it doesn tstop ina day then we got a problem . but lets try that

Depends on the model. some models have the reignite system where it tries to reignite if the flame goes out. problem could be the burner ass. If not than the igniter switch needs replacing. Would replace them all.

Is it normal to have a smell of gas in the initial start-up process using the stove top?


if you have electronic igniters you may get a wiff of gas at start up.
make sure your igniters are set properly so the burner lites right away and does not click click click for awhile before starting.

It's not lighting


older ranges have a pilot light if goes out relight it, Newer ranges have an electronic igniter it makes a clicking sound and produces a spark, If you don't hear it clicking you have a bad igniter, if you do hear it you should see a tiny spark next to the burner, if you don't see a spark the (spark plug) is wore out or grounded out maybe piece of food or foil ect.

How do i turn the pilot light off. I want to use a bug fogger in my apartment and i want to temporarily turn off the pilot on my stove


This model should have pilotless electronic ignition.If you hear clicking when you light the burners , it is electronic,. Also , open broiler drawer and turn on oven .After a few seconds do you see a glow start?Thats your electronic oven igniter confirming you have no pilot.

Hi, To complete the circuit for the electronic ignition the 3 screwheads under the aluminum burner need to be really clean. The same goes for the 3 posts on the bottom of the aluminum burner. They touch to apply grounding for the ignition spark. GL!

Gas burners/electronic ignition


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.

When i turn on the oven the top hobs keep clicking on my canon cooker


Hello Brian
Welcome to Fixya.

You said, when you turn on the oven the top knobs keep clicking on my canon cooker.

If you mean the electronic ignition keeps clicking when you turn the oven, It sounds like one of the switches that is controlled by the knobs, is stuck and malfunctioning! It sounds like it needs to be replaced.
There are 5 electronic igniter's on a 4 burner gas range, and the fifth is in the oven.

Let me know how you do.
Please remember to leave a rating when you finish.
Thank You, Huuum

Electronic Igniter


If it is only happening with one burner, the switch on that valve needs to be replaced. If it does it with all the burners it is a problem with the spark module or control.
Post back if you have any questions.
