Hob ignition switch keeps on clicking.

Hi there,
I think a bit of cooking oil or water has short circuited my ignition switch on my gas hob, it keeps on clicking/sparking. Can anyone suggest a way to fix or stop this?
Many thanks
Iain

Hi
Glad to Help you!!
Take the knob off, them remove the cover that housed the switches, OK, Now, Look at the switch that is continiusly clicking and it will have two wires goin onto it, remove these wires and just lift the sending unit, and inspect it for water, grease etc ect....clean and dry and put back on and try again it should work, if it does not work, then just get a replacement one, they are not expensive, I just replaced two on my Jenn-Air myself and it cost me $25.00.
Hope this will help!!

Igniter will not turn off. Makes a clicking sound


Hi, normally what causes the igniter to keep clicking is spilling water or something down into the knob area. The water is causing a short circuit in the switch which is mounted on each burner valve shaft. If unplugging the range for several days to allow drying doesn't fix the problem, then one of the switches will need to be replaced.

Smeg gas hob ignition


There is a problem with the board. It has malfunctioned onto an ignition mode. By switching it off, it shows the capacitor is holding chage untill flat.(Hence the continual sparking) Replace it.

I had a similar problem and discovered that the control knob had fried itself, most likely due to liquid penetration down the shaft of the control knob and into the control knob electronics. Inside is a printed circuit board with resistor, diode and a rheostat. The surface of the board was charred beyond repair.
To trouble shoot the problem, open the cook top and hook the burner in question to one of the known good control knobs. If it ignites, then it is the control knob electronics. If it doesn’t, then there is something wrong with the igniter.
Note: The 2-zone Wok Burner had a different control knob that the other burners.
To open the cook top, do NOT loosen any of the Phillips screws on the sides. Here are the instructions from the user manual:
Disassembly
Shut off gas supply, disconnect the manifold pipe, disconnect the electrical power. Remove pan supports, burner heads and burner rings. Remove control knobs.
In the event that the hob is built in, undo the bracket clamps underneath the work surface. Lift the hob on to the work surface. Unscrew the venturis on the high-speed and super high-speed burners using a 20 mm wrench. Lift and remove the burner rings and burner base plates. Disconnect the wires from the ignition plugs. Keep the wire from dropping into the undertray by inserting it in one of the slots in the burner supports.
Remove the three screws securing the dual ring wok burner. Remove the wok burner base plate. Lift the ceramic tray from the hob.
Note: Each regulator shaft is equipped with a black ring. This ring may cling to the rubber seal in the ceramic tray. Check and remove the rings from the rubber seals.

Gas hob ignition


1) try leaving it off for a while to see if the ingition box needs to reset
2)when you turn on the burnner does the ignition start by itself or do you have to "ignite" the burnner yourself?
3) if oyu have to ignite the burnner yourself, try using a bbq lighter to see if the gas has gotten to your range yet.
4) if no gas present, there is ussually a reset in the regulator. it needs to be reset if it gets low on pressure. you need to have the lines connected and then turn on the gas AND then the appliance. if the appliance is turned on before the gas in turned on the rest will pop.
lets us know what happens :)

problem with hob is probably water ingress in area of ignition unit - will probably cure itself oven is a completely separate unit from hob. problem with it is that you have to re-set the clock - you have it on automatic. after power outage, oven clock always has to be reset
