Stove top ignition doesn't stop ticking


My Dacor cooktop had a similar problem of continuously clicking igniters. I unplugged it a couple months ago and used a piezoelectric igniter to get it started. Then I looked in the Dacor FAQ and it said to clean the ceramic igniter posts with alcohol not water. I had to scrape some gunk off a couple of the posts with a knife before cleaning with alcohol. Now it works.'

I think the igniters use electrical conductivity to detect when they need to spark, so even slight invisible contamination on the igniter insulator can confuse the sensing system. Also they all seem to fire as a group, so all of them need to be clean because if any one of them is dirty then they will all malfunction.

Clicks occur in "low" position instead of "lite" position


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

MAYTAG GAS STOVE


One or more of the control switches has shorted out. This usually happens when you wash the knobs. Water stays in the holes and runs down the shaft when you put them back on. Maytag /Jenn air have had recalls on some models for this problem as it can start a fire under some conditions. UNPLUG THE COOKTOP UNTIL THIS IS FIXED!!! You can still light it with a match. Check Maytags Web site for information on this . Some switches can be seperated from the gas valve and replaced sererately. This may be worth fixing. Remove the wires from all switches and re connect them one at a time until you find out which switch/s are bad. If this was left clicking for too long you might have burned out the spark module. If the switches are part of the gas valve, and more than one is bad it may not make sense to fix the cooktop. Remember you can always just disconnect the switch that is bad , use the rest and light the broken burner with a long reach lighter.

Ticking sound does not go off even after knob is turned to high or medium


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.

Spark continuously on


If you have recently cleaned it, you may have gotten moisture behind the knobs and into the spark switches. Be very careful not to let moisture get behind knobs. Very dangerous. If this is the case, they may dry out themselves and stop sparking. If not you may need to replace a spark switch behind knob.

Ticking Sound of spark igniter persists


Our GE cook-top burner igniter has started ticking even when the oven is shut off. Even after cleaning the bottom of controls the ticking persists. Any suggestions? Thanks

Electronic ignition


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.
