On one of my stovetop burners, the igniter is constantly sparking. It started after I washed the stove top. There is no gas present, just the igniter.

Most posible after wahing some water enter the electric igniter and create a short contact of the one burner.
I sugest first switch off the electricity of whole stove and then to remove the burner top and by the use of hair dryer to blow hot air in the igniter. Usualy is brown plastic box 5x6x3 cm and with wires in and out. After you dry it out check it again.
If it is dificult for you just swich it of for 24 hour min and you have 85 % chances that it will dry out and work normal again.
If both procedure above fails then you need to replace the igniter.

What can I do to fix my Wirlpool Gas Oven? Mo. # WFG361LVB


i would check my oven gas safety valve first

· Gas ovens / stovetop that use gas and not electricity. These work by igniting gas and use actual flame on the the stovetop.
· Newest cook top styles, such as the induction or halogen cook tops combine the same style to produce more even heating. Some of these ovens feature thermal limiters or thermostats that regulate the burner system. GAS OVENS 1)The spark igniter tip is dirty (can clean it with either a little wire brush or a piece of fine sandpaper).

2) The Pilot flame is too low, and the tip of the igniter is not in the flame good enough. (the flame acts as a circuit when it touches the tip & completes the circuit).

3) The spark module is no good and needs to be replaced.(But 1 & 2 are your best bet).
spark module does not sense the flame when it's on. The spark igniter is also the flame sensor which provides feedback to the spark module.

Make sure the igniter is properly aligned with the burner lighting holes and it is clean. All lighting holes must be clean too. You can enlarge them using a drill bit one size bigger.

If it would not fix the problem, replace the bake burner and the igniter.

There is a small chance for the spark module itself to be bad as well.

JGBS20BEW2AD, the stove top four cooking burner constantly clicks.


The igniter switch(s) has most likely failed shorted. Fairly common with gas ranges with spark ignition.

Starter clicks but doesn't light burner


either the gas valve for that particular burner isnt opening,or if all burners are like this then the dual valve that feeds the broiler and stovetop has a bad stove top side of valve portion its underneath the oven cavity behind the lower pan drawer

Can you light the burners ok with a match, if so you might need a spark module Whatever you do don't raise the top. Check out this video HERE

You have to light burners on stovetop with a match all the time.


The pilots for the range top are beneath the top of the range top. YOu will see them if they are there. YOu stove may use electronic ignition and you can hear the sparking when you turn the knob to the "light" position.

If it is electronic ignition, make sure the stove is plugged into an operating outlet

One stovetop burner does not initiate igniter sparking.


Its most likely the igniter. It might just be dirty, but its easy to install a new one. They are attached by two screws and a single plug. I'd suggest turning the power off to the stove before plugging in a new one.

Want to clean under stovetop


Hello
welcome to Fixya,
This stove has sealed burners and there is no need to lift or clean under anything except the burner caps.
You can not get inside the top and you can not lift the top like the old pilot stoves!
When you clean the burners and around rings do not spray or saturate the are and or the igniter element that creates the spark.I'll be back in a moment with your user manual.
first what is the complete model number of your range as written on the sticker in the door jam of the storage compartment down below. left side!

Igniter continuously clicks


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.
