Igniters are not working right

Part # JGP645BEX1BB
GE gas cooktop
Igniters click to start the wrong burners and then continue clicking the wrong one until you turn it on and it lights. Sometime you have to turn the flame low to get it to quit clicking.

When you turn any burner control to lite all ignitors should click this is normal industry wide. the ignitors are controlled by switches that are placed over the valve shafts they are wired up together so thats why they all click when you only operate one valve don't worry about it. the ignitor stays on untill you back the valve off a tad this is also normal.

The igniter on the right front burner of my GE Gas cooktop does not work....I must use a lighter or match to ignite....What can I do? There is no clicking sound when I turn on the burner?


all burner igniters work at the same time - you may have a faulty electronic spark unit. change the spark unit. go to repair clinic dot come for the unit. also would be wise to check the ingniter start switch on the gas burner control knob

My ignitor on my ge cooktop keeps clicking slowly in off mode


As it relates to 5 burner gas cooktop Model Number JGP 963SEJ1SS
First - Ignite the flame then reduce the flame to between low and medium.  If the igniter continues to click, you most likely have a contact switch issue related to the problem burner.  
Unplug the cook top and turn off the gas.  After the gas is turned off, disconnect the gas line.  
Remove the cook top.  

Unscrew and Remove ALL of the burner bases by lifting them up.  The ceramic igniters may be difficult to remove but they will come loose if worked out slowly.  
Pull of the wire connected to the igniter. 
Remove to cook top top plate from the base, exposing the internal gas valves and wiring.
All of the burners are wired in parallel.   Lift off and unsnap the casing of the problem igniter switch.  The repair may require something as simple as, 1- cleaning the contact strips, or 2- slightly bending the non stationary contact strip to keep it from coming in contact with the stationary contact when in the off position, or 3- replacing the switch. 
Unless you comfortable and understand how electric systems and switches work, this is a job for a qualified repair person.

Spark igniters on the burners fire continuously


When cleaning, if the control switches get damp, they will react as you describe.
Unplug the appliance, use a hair dryer and attempt to dry the switches.
Leave it unplugged overnight and try them again tomorrow.
They will eventually dry and be OK.

Gas Range Continuous Spark


On all gas stoves/cooktops, when you switch on one burner to light, all other burner igniters will click at the same time. This is normal. Enjoy your new apartment!

If you need further assistance, let me know

Igniter issue - some do not turn on other do not turn off


I would try cleaning the burners. You can purchase cleaning brushes made specifically for this purpose and they work like a charm.
