Question about Cooktops
MY MAYTAG GAS STOVE STARTED TICKING WHILE OFF IT MUST BE THE ELECTRIC IGNITION WHAT CAN I DO
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.
