Question about GE Profile Spectra JGBP90 Gas Kitchen Range

1 Answer

All the stove top ignitiers work intermitantly.

They spark sometimes and others they don't. I have tried cleaning everything I can think of including the screws that are used to ground the heads, but nothing fixes the problem. I'm guessing the control board may be the problem, is there a way to test it? Also if that is it where is the best place to get the part?

If ALL the igniters are affected in the same way, I would suspect a spark module that is going bad. All the top igniters are the spark type and are fed by a spark module located either behind the bottom drawer or behind panel on the back of the range. carries the part for about $65. Just type in your COMPLETE model number in the Search menu and scroll through the pictorial list of parts for a "Spark Module". You can also try They also carry an inventory of parts for quite a few name brands. I hope this helps you. Please post back if you need further assistance.

There is probably some dirt on the starter or the area near it where the spark should jump to. Locate the starters pin, where the spark would normally come from.
Use some WD40 to clean it and the area around it then dry it fully with a dry cloth.

Kenmore gas 4burner cooktop model#229c44330p001-0 when its off the pilot keeps clicking(sparking) every 5-7secondstcarthen@

There are a few things to check for: First make sure the electrode (the small metal piece that the spark comes off from) is clean and the holes in the burner are clean, use a pin or paper clip to clean out the burner holes. The next thing to check for are theignition switchesunder the surface control knobs, the switches can twist and break and keep the spark module on and the spark keeps "clicking" even when the burner is light. If every thing looks good, you may have a badsparkmodule which should be replaced as sometimes cleaning can get moisture into the surface switches; try drying them with a hair dryer to see if this will help. Hope this helps...please post back for further assistance.

Clicking on stove top will not stop

Unplug the stove top for a few days, and let the burner switches dry out. Sometimes this is caused by moisture getting into the switches from a boil over, or from someone cleaning the stove top. If your unit still sparks after a few days then you will have to replace the bad burner switch, or switches. I am assuming that you are talking about a cook top that is sparking all the time, and not about a cooktop that is sparking, even after the burner lights. If your burner is still sparking after it lights, you usually have a bad spark module. Good Luck, Appliance Specialists
