    My stove is doing that now. All burners are clicking, but it I turn one on, the ignite stops. I've isolated the burner that has the problem, but I have to unplug the stove to stop the clicking. I'll call a repair in the morning. I was hoping for a fix on line

Under each gas control is a switch that will turn on the spark module when rotated to the light position. One or more of these switches has failed. Some models these switches are individually replaceable, others the switch is an assembly of all four.

first check to make sure all the burner tops are setting correctly on the burner base, if not it will make the flame uneven. the way the igniter works is once they feel the flames on them they will stop sparking. make sure the flames are not too low and they are touching the igniter. check them one at a time. if you have any questions message me back thanks

Burners continuously clicking


The most common cause of this complaint is from liquids getting into the internal igniter switches or igniter wiring for the range and shorting them out. This happens many times when someone cleans a range with liquid cleaners or a pot of water boils over. The fix to this is to unplug the range for 24 to 48 hours to allow the liquid to dry out. Sometimes you can speed this drying process up with a hair dryer. Remove the burner knobs and point the dryer into each burner knob stem to get the heat in there and dry out the switches. Once the liquid has dried then you should be able to plug the range back in and it will work like normal. If you leave it plugged in the excessive use of the ignition system can short out the coil. The second thing it can be is a defective ignition switch. Each burner knob has an ignition switch built into it. If one of those swithces gets stuck in the closed position then this can cause the ignitioin system to continously run. The fix for that is to replace the switch.

Very likely the spark module. All four are supposed to click when one is turned on, however they are supposed to stop when the burner ignites. Replace the module and test. Good Luck, Appliance Specialists

Apparently there was a water spill around the burner control knob and in the burner itself; We ran the burner to create heat and then turned it off and let the water dry out and evaporate from the burner and igniter area.

First of all- when you turn any ONE of the burner knobs to "ignite" all FOUR burners will spark/click. This is normal. If you're getting a spark from the ignitors when all knobs are set to "off" then you most likely either got some moisture into one or more of the switches below the knobs (sometimes they will dry out and be fine after a while, but I have seen them burn-up/melt/arc too) OR one or more of the switches is stuck/shorted. Good luck and hope this helps.
Unplug the range before working on it and don't attempt anything you're unfamiliar or uncomfortable with.

Spark igniters on the burners fire continuously


Had The same problem. I removed the top of the control panel to find out that one of the ignitor switches had turned when I replaced the four large plasic nuts on the control panel. Make sure the switches (block) are aligned, and kept aligned, when re-installing the top of the control panel. Startwreck.
