One or more of the control switches has shorted out. This usually happens when you wash the knobs. Water stays in the holes and runs down the shaft when you put them back on. Maytag /Jenn air have had recalls on some models for this problem as it can start a fire under some conditions. UNPLUG THE COOKTOP UNTIL THIS IS FIXED!!! You can still light it with a match. Check Maytags Web site for information on this . Some switches can be seperated from the gas valve and replaced sererately. This may be worth fixing. Remove the wires from all switches and re connect them one at a time until you find out which switch/s are bad. If this was left clicking for too long you might have burned out the spark module. If the switches are part of the gas valve, and more than one is bad it may not make sense to fix the cooktop. Remember you can always just disconnect the switch that is bad , use the rest and light the broken burner with a long reach lighter.

My stove is making strange clicking noises. please help.


It sounds like the ignition knob is stuck in the "ignitor" position. Try taking it off, clean it and adjust it. If that doesn't work, it will have to be replaced with a new one. If yu leave it alone, it will probably wear itself out. Just make sure that the gas valves on the stove are in the off position so that they don't accidentally light on their own. Good luck

My ignition for the gas cooktop is clicking without being in the on positoin. will this be caused by cleaning with water? is it going to cause problems?


One of your burner ignition switches is fried. To see which one it is you remove a wire from each one till the ticking stops. Or plan be just unplug the stove and light it with a match.

Stove top ignition doesn't stop ticking


My Dacor cooktop had a similar problem of continuously clicking igniters. I unplugged it a couple months ago and used a piezoelectric igniter to get it started. Then I looked in the Dacor FAQ and it said to clean the ceramic igniter posts with alcohol not water. I had to scrape some gunk off a couple of the posts with a knife before cleaning with alcohol. Now it works.'

I think the igniters use electrical conductivity to detect when they need to spark, so even slight invisible contamination on the igniter insulator can confuse the sensing system. Also they all seem to fire as a group, so all of them need to be clean because if any one of them is dirty then they will all malfunction.
