Check the polarity of your outlet. My brother put my stove outlet in backwards. The stove ignitors clicked constantly until I unplugged it and, ran an extension cord to another outlet and it was fine. He reversed the outlet, then it was fine...except it was a bad stove and I have other major problems with it.

I've had this same problem for 2 yrs. Know one yet has been able to fix it. Now Jennair wants to charge labor fees, even though this has been an ongoing problem. 3,000.00 for a stove and now I'm stuck paying for labor cause it wasn't put together right in the first place....wow.

I had this problem. It was caused by the burner "thinking" the flame had turned off--it was clicking because it was sparking to re-start the flame from the gas. I was able to fix it by tightening a flat, thin nut at the top of the burner.

Oven,broiler won't light


The igniter is the most commonly defective part for a gas oven that won't turn on. The igniter has two main functions. First, the igniter draws electrical current through the oven safety valve to open it. Second, the igniter gets hot enough to glow and ignite the gas in the burner assembly. If the igniter gets weak, it will fail to open the safety valve correctly. If the valve does not open, the oven will not heat. To determine if the igniter is defective, observe the igniter when the oven is on. If the igniter glows for more than 90 seconds without igniting the gas flame, this indicates that the igniter is too weak to open the valve. If the igniter is weak, replace it. If the igniter does not glow at all, use a multimeter to test the igniter for continuity. If the igniter does not have continuity, replace it.

Thermador Cook Top Model SGS365FS. All ignitors continuously "click" when turning only one knob. Once the gas is lit and you turn the knob off of ignite all ignitors still continuously click. Each


THat is the way the igniter circuit works...all burners activate at the same time...that is a safety precaution in case more than one burner is on. As far as the igniters continuing is concerned, there is a problem with one or more than one of the push in to ignite knobs being stuck in the in position. Use some CRC or WD40 spray on the shafts behing the knobs by removing each knob and spraying where it slides.

HELLO I HAVE MAYTAG GEMINI GAS RANGE IT IS MAKING CLICKING SOUND WANT CAN I DO


The concern is tha the clicking sound is from the igniter for the gas.
It is correct at least in my stove that at the time you are turning on the flame that for a few seconds the stove generates a clicking sound which is actually arcing from a high voltage supply. Once the flame is lit the advancement of the flame control is to a higher flame position -OFF that of the start, is when the clicking should stop. There is no reason to leave the igniter on for a long time. If it does stay on all the time then that is a service issue that should be addressed. igniter devices can be expensive to replace- they are NOT continuous operational parts.

Oven problem, it tries to ignite, but won't


It sounds like the igniter isn't lighting the flame, or the flame isn't sensing once lit. Check the burner to see if anything has fallen onto the burner or electrodes to prevent it from working. Also check the holes on the burner to see if they are blocked. If it is all clear it may be a control box issue.

I have just replaced all the ignitors and the spark control module on the cook top burners. Prior to this the back burners would cause ignition spark continually when lit. the front 2 burners could be...


first check to make sure all the burner tops are setting correctly on the burner base, if not it will make the flame uneven. the way the igniter works is once they feel the flames on them they will stop sparking. make sure the flames are not too low and they are touching the igniter. check them one at a time. if you have any questions message me back thanks

Dcs 48" gas range igniter comes back when set on low/simmer


This is not a solution but something to think about for troubleshooting.
On the DCS there are two ports that feed gas to the burner.
One for high flame and one for simmer.
On the DCS if the flame is snuffed out on simmer it will automatically reignite.
So if the igniter will not shut off while on simmer, the sensor is bad and is trying to reignite the burner.

Igniter will not shut off on my DCS RGS-366 gas range


Replace the multipoint gas re-igniter, it is a blue unit behind the knobs. This unit detects the flame and stops the clicking. Call Fisher and Paykel (owners of DCS) at 1 888 936-7872, they sell parts for DCS. The old inferior unit is blue and has a whte label. The newer unit has a yellow label.
