When I attempt to light the stove top range burners on my GE Gas Range , Model #JGB928SEK1SS,the gas comes on but there is no clicking sound and spark,or ignition,and the burners fail to light. The oven appears to work and there is power to the range. I can hear and smell the gas when the knobs are turned and can light the burners with a match. The burners are clean and the ceramic igniters are in the depressed position.Can yoiu please advise me as to what might be wrong. Thank you.

    The model is JGB928SEK1SS and is a range/oven ,not a Gas Cooktop,that I have a problem with!!

    All the burners don't work! There is no regular clicking sound when the knobs are turned and there are no blockages or dirty or cracked igniters.What else could it be.

U can solve this problem by cleaning off the igniters. first of all unplug it from the power. Then take a small wire telcom pic tool to scrape the white and brown deposits from the sides of the igniters. You could probably use something else similiar to do the scraping. I noticed a shiny surface underneath. then go ahead and scrap it and brushed clean the mating surface where the spark travels. then vacuumed up the mess. your burners all worked great after this.

Turned off the power, removed the five knobs and corresponding rubber rings, and used a hair dryer on the five holes where the knobs were for about ten minutes in total. Hey presto, when I turned the power back on.

Hi

Some of the probable causes to your problem are:-

Blow into the little holes where the gas comes out.sometimes they get clogged with water after washing them or something is spilled on them. sometimes this is the solution.
If ithe spark gap on the igniter is plugged with food, clean it with a small brush and rubbing alcohol. Do not scrape.
On some ranges if the burner is rotated when cleaned and is in the wrong position, it will not light.
Or
a cracked electrode ignitor or bad wire to the ignitor can stop/prevent the spark from sparking at the correct spot and lighting the burner.
Sometimes the problem is a bad ignition switch too.

GE gas stove top igniters won't stop clicking


My wife just called me with the same problem - all 4 starters are clicking repeatedly - which started while the range was being cleaned.
From a Google search, this is what I found. Don't know if it will solve our issues, though wanted to share as it sounds like we may all be suffering from dirty starters (electrodes).
My surface burners keep "clicking" even after the burner is lit. There are a few things to check for.




And, to check the model number, look at the various places pointed to in the upper left of this diagram. http://www.applianceaid.com/newpics/range-model2.JPG

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!
