Try unplugging and leaving it sit overnight not plugged in. sometimes grease or water from cleaning gets down into the electrodes and will continue to spark until the water/grease dries up. nothing to worry about safety wise, its more of a nusscience that anything, if it doesnt stop ina day then we got a problem . but lets try that

Igniters won't lite on stovetop


Check the wiring connection to igniter. If electricity is reaching the igniter and still nada, then the igniter is bad and needs replacement.

We spilled liquid into the gas burner by accident and it won't stop clicking. We can't find how or where to unplug it? GE PROFILE GAS STOVETOP RANGE


Won't stop clicking?
When?
Is it clicking constantly or only when you attempt to ignite a burner?
Normally the clicking can be traced to the electronic ignition that activates when you turn the burner on.

Regardless if you need to turn it off but do not have easy access to the back of the unit, you can always shut it off at the circuit breaker located in the breaker/fuse box.

Hope this helps but if not just let me know.

Bosch igniters firing continuously


each of the element controls has a internal switch that when it is turned on "first click" sends power to the igniters the switches a wired in a pattern known as parallel meaning any one of the switches will start the igniter process .try this turn off all the knobs and try playing with each switch rolling it through the ignition phase in to the cook setting and see if you can determine whitch swich is the culprit if not then try turning off the electricity and the gas to the stove turn each switch on and roll through to the cook setting you are lisening for a barely audible click the one that is different from the other or has no sound is probably your issue failing this you are going to need a continuity meter (used with the power and gas shut off) and some additional instructions... ummm gas and sparks be careful seems a little unnessacary but please do Good Luck

Igniter clicks, but gas will not flow.


if you don't smell gas (rotten eggs/sulphur), the gas is off or clogged. there are little pin-hole spouts for the gas to come out before it gets to the burner, and they get clogged easily by falling food/liquid. you have to take the stovetop off to get to them.

Stovetop works but oven does not.


Most likely your problem is the glowplug aka oven igniter. Even though it comes on it must reach a certain temp for the gas to come on. Occaisionally the valve will be bad but 90% of the time it is the igniter. Part number is 74007498

One stovetop burner does not initiate igniter sparking.


Its most likely the igniter. It might just be dirty, but its easy to install a new one. They are attached by two screws and a single plug. I'd suggest turning the power off to the stove before plugging in a new one.

GE gas stove top igniters won t stop clicking


I got this problem yesterday. My 6-month old GE range/stove top was being cleaned by a cleaning lady and suddenly, the igniters started clicking nonstop. I had to shut down the circuit breakers. I googled the problem, and it seemed clear that the "spark switches" got moisture on them. The best site which described this is: http://www.appliance411.com/archive/25012_ge_gas_cooktop_not_working_.shtml

Some people said you could dry them with a blow dryer, and others said you need to replace these switches (which is not too expensive, but takes some time/skill). I was hoping against this, so I tried something along those lines: I removed all the parts of the stovetop - the grill, the "cap", the metal funky piece, etc. until there was nothing but the surface of the stove and holes going down to the igniter area. Then, I took an electric fan and kept it pointed at the stovetop all night long. After about 10 hours, I turned the circuit breaker back on. No more clicking! And the burners all work! So, I think I essentially did the "hair dryer" solution, but did it more longterm without having to watch the clock to see if I did it long enough. Anyway, I don't normally post these things, but this discovery really helped me and I hope it helps someone else!

Gas stovetop not igniting without matches


If the rest of the surface igniters are working, more than likely your spark module is working fine. (This is normal, by the way) I would suspect that you have a bad spark electrode at the burner in question, a bad burner switch, or bad wiring.

I found several part listings for the model number you posted this question under at repairclinic.com. You will need to provide a more complete model number in order to narrow your search to ensure you get the right part. You can find your model number on a nameplate around the oven door opening, or lower drawer opening (if equipped). Some manufacturers also place this information on the back of the range.

I hope this helps answer some of your questions. Please reply back to this posting if you need further troubleshooting guidance.
