It is likely the Knob has grease or other substance that the internal spring cannot overcome - or the spring itself has broken.

You'll need to remove the knob to be sure.

Spark module part no 318 at parts diagram it may be wet and by using a hair dryer or leave it unplug for some days can dry out and stop. If not then the electric contacts are stuck and need a new spark module

When you turn on any burner on the spark igniter will stay on after the burner is lit and the knob is turn from the lite position.


You could of possible got the stove top wet causing the problem.This problem although sounds like your spark ignitor module went bad.

My ge monogram stove top burner( model zgu366h)continues to ignite. even after the flame is lit


If you are saying the clicking continues you must move the burner knob past the LITE position.
If it continues clicking with the knob past the LITE position the ignitor switch behind the knob is bad.

My gas cooktop has just spontaneously started clicking (as if I were moving the knob to start the burner) on the front two burners. I have tried turning the knobs on and off, but the clicking and spark...


One of your burner switches is stuck in the ON position. On older models the switch itself can be replaced. On newer models the whole bunch need to be replaced. c2c8a4f.jpg

What causes gas igniter to keep clicking when gas is off


Just solved this on the Kenmore model 911.33389 (same unit). Ignitors started with no one touching the cooktop. It has had a history of doing this and, this time, sparks were visible under the knob. Disassembled cooktop (don't forget to unplug and shut off the gas!). Performed "smell test" for burned electronics. Found smell in #3 ignitor switch. Disassembled and found worn, burned, and fried. Parts list was inside unit but had a typo for the "ignitor switch". Showed WB18T10240. Ordered that only to discover it was the transformer to ignitor wire harness set (no photo on website!). Wrong part... ugh! Dug deeper for the correct part #. It was WB18T10239 but it has been replaced with WB18T10344. Noted on some website that someone installed one and then the ignitor was NOT synchronized. Turns out, you can install WB18T10344 about three different ways. Mine was 22 degrees off vertical (different than original) and now my unit works perfectly! Also, install the new switch harness (if that's what you do) starting from the left front valve then clockwise. The original unit installed from the right front valve, then clockwise. Hope this helps.

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?


the very first thing i would do here is to check the ignitor itself
under the head cap you should see two screws, once those are out you will be able to lift the burner plate, lift the burner plate, you will see, or should see the ignitor, and the wire.
i check this for voltage by unplugging the ignitor and olding the wire close to a ground, the metal body is good. Turn on the ignitor, becareful it is live. yhou shgould see a spark comming from the wire
if not check to make sure that wire is in position and on the spark module
if you do see a spark this way, just order the replacement ignitor
and install it when it arrives
