If only one burner is sparking and ticking then first thing to do is clean the sparker with a pipe cleaner wire. If it continues to tick and spark after cleaning it out then you will need to replace the igniter

Gas Range Repair Burners Keep on Clicking

The clicking that normally just goes to start your burners is not stopping. They just keep on with the tick, tick, ticking….. What can go wrong that will make them keep on doing this?


There are a few possibilities for this problem. The first one is that the little switch that is behind the burner knob either went bad or got water in it. To isolate the switch that is the problem you can pull one of the wires off of behind the burner knobs one at a time till it stops. That one is the one that is bad.


If you have just washed down the stove top then you may have water in it that is making it continue to click. Let everything dry out over night and see if that fixes it. A hair dryer can be used to speed up the process.

If you pull a wire from each switch and it still goes on, then the spark module is bad. You will need to replace it.

Be aware that it is normal for all the burners to spark whenever another one is being lit.

Excessive dirt and grease can cause the burners to light hard but will not cause the spark module to keep on sparking all the time. If a burner lights hard, check the tip of the spark electrode to make sure it is clean.

If your spark module has burnt out to rapidly, or needs to be constantly replaced, you may not have a properly wired and grounded receptacle. Reversed polarity or not being grounded can cause the spark module to fail prematurely. Make sure that you do not use a two pronged outlet or extension cord for your range.

If all else fails you can always unplug the range to get the sparking to stop. You can light the burners with a charcoal grill lighter or a match if you do it carefully. Turn the burner to full on and then slowly go towards the burner keeping the flame as low to the top as possible till the burner lights.

Top gas cooking range continues to make the ticking sound ( tick-tick-tick) even when all burners are off. There is sparking at all the burners too with the sound, I have removed the electrical plug f

This seems like the burner control valves are not functioning properly. The rear is still working properly so without knowing brand I would say the control valves are defective.

Frigidaire spark ignitor constantly ticks

This usually is the control going bad if the burners not locking out when it sparks, this usually indicates the flame rectification is not getting any or sufficient DC signal back via the burner ground or flame sensor depending on what you have, try reseating the burner ground terminal on the module or circuit board and the burner assembly burnish the surface mating areas to assist the DC signal to get back home to the board or module.
You can run a 105C rated wire from the burner aseembly to the burner ground or ground terminal this helps often, but sounds like the controls going bad.

Have a wolf range and the spark generator which lights the burners will not stop clicking even when i turn the stove off. if I turn on the middle back burner it will stop clicking. how do i stop this?

Remove the knobs and skirts and a few screws. Remove the panel and locate the spark switch that is bad by removing one wire at a time till the ticking stops. dfc80e7.jpg

Ticking sound on the gas top after burner is off. How do I stop?

Remove all the burners and thoroughly clean in warm to hot soap and water. Do the same for the burner seats on the cooktop.

Ignitors keep making ticking sound, all burners turned off, won't go in lock position, and one burner will not ignite gas despite constant ticking

Probably a spillage or boil over has clogged the burner and some of the liquid has dampened the shank switch mounted on the burner post. Get a shop vac and clean the burner. Wait a day or 2 and see if the switch stops. OR disable the ticky ticky by removing the bottom drawer and looking for the spark module. Remove one of the hot wires and tape it up. Light the burners like granny does with a match. LOL

Gas burners are ticking

The ticking sound you hear is the electronic ignition which is located by each burner. When you turn a burner on the electronic ignition creates a spark which ignites the gas. Once the burner is ignited. turn the knob a bit further and the ticking will stop.
