Gas Cooktop (Magic Chef) with 5 burners - igniter shorted

Hi - The igniter clicked for a while and then caught fire and burned out. It seems like there the circuit simply shorted. The gas company said that the stove is "dead" and shut off the gas to be safe. I was wondering if I should simply bite the bullet and buy a new stovetop or try to fix the wiring on this one. Your advice would be much appreciated. Thanks.

The gas burner cooktop clicks even when all dials are off


Hi nschulman,

I believe your ignition switches have come in to contact with either water or moisture.

Please read my below Tip on how to fix the problem:

If it does not solve your problem, I'd suggest replacing the ignition switches.

PILOT CLICKING


Dawnie, under each burner control there is a valve and a switch. One of your switches has either become wet or shorted out. This is why it's clicking. Sometimes grease gets in them and causes this problem. The part number for the switch is 7403p367-60. You can look it up on the net to see what Im talking about. Not a hard fix. Catriver..post back.
