Question about GE 30 in. JGP336 Gas Cooktop

1 Answer

Automatic Eletric Ignition stopped working

The automatic ignition in my JGP336 gas cooktop stopped working. In the past if water etc poured into igniter orifice I have seen the specific igniter stop sparking till the igniter dried out. This time all 4 of them are out, seem like some part may need to be replaced. I haven't looked under the cooktop, not sure how to do that easily. Any ideas?

I accidentally posted the question on GE JGP636 forum so posting it here again.

It's is normal for the ignitors not to work when wet, once they dry they should work. The best thing is to check the electric sending unit, they are a small white kind of square that goes on the switch, just lift the knobs and take the cover of the switches and you should see the sending units righ on the rod that hold the knobs, they have to small wires attached to them, It seems to me that thats were your problem is.
Do you hear the click clik when you put the knob on LITE??

I have a 30 in jgp336 gas cooktop that fails to ignite when it clicks what is wrong, it worked a few days ago and suddenly stopped working


usually the spark module is not put back together properly.
1 make sure the spark unit is clean
2 make sure the gas jet is pointing towards the sparker
3 make sure there is no aluminum foil or other metal near the sparker pulling the spark away from the gas

Gas cooktop never stop clicking 4 of them just keep starting without stop. I opened it and checked the wire, no problem.


Hi mikegou100,

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.

Kind Regards

I am looking for ignation switch


Usually, the igniter is contained in the same switch ( control knob) as the gas flow. When you turn it on, you should hear a clicking noise. I've never seen one of these with a separate ignition system. Sorry if that's not the problem tokfm

Igniter clicking when all four knobs in off position after water spill


It is possible that once the unit dries out the clicking will stop. If it doesn't, you will need to call someone to have the problem addressed. You will need a spark module and or an ignition switch(s).
