The water has shorted out at least one of the igniter switches. Disconnect power to the unit and let it dry out for several hours and it should be just fine.

One plate in Bellini induction cooktop continues to flash with a pot on it, yet the pot works on the other 3 plates. How do I fix?


Had the same problem after overusing one of the bigger elements on my bellini induction stove / cooktop to boil copious amounts water. Element eventually stopped working and would just flash power level similar to when it cant recognise an induction pot, but also made a clicking noise over and over. My solution was to turn mains power off at meter box, and back on to reset the stove. When power came back on stove was working again! might have reset some sort of cutout sensor inside stove but cant be certain. Anyway, worked for me so give it a go and see if it helps. good luck.

Gas was turned off and igniters keep clicking?


As I did not see what occurred, I suspect that the tea kettle boiled over and sent water into the burners. The igniters kept clicking and I eventually turned the gas back on. Will have to replace one igniter which apparently went out and have to light it manually at this point.

Whrlpool Electric Stove Top Burners


this is a ceramic top i am guessing.
this is normal, it isthe way it is designed.
it does this so that it does not cause a heat fracture to the glass.. it will continue to turn on and off.. but if you put a pot of cold water on it you will find that this will happen alot less frequently.

Thermador gas cooktop explosion


I would say that pop was one of you igniters.  either that or the stove is not installed correctly and when it gets warm, thermal expansion makes the metal pop.  I would say that I would use caution and discontinue its use.  Most problems with these need to fixed professionally.

Flame on gas hob not correct.


I'm not sure what you mean by a proper efficient flame. I just recently went through an experience I'll relate to you here. I purchased a GE Profile dual fuel range. I can get more specific if you'd like but here's the point. The highest burner on the range was rated at 17000 BTU's. A friend recommended the range to me and sang it's praises. I took delivery of my new toy and couldn't wait to get a pot on the stove to start cooking a long wait for pasta. Twenty minutes later I was finally seeing bubbles! I spilled the water out and measured 12 cups of water into the pasta pot at room temperature. That's three quarts of water. 20 minutes to see bubbles and never would it come to the expected "rolling boil". My experience has always been with electric ranges and I am new to gas but 20 minutes? Something had to be wrong, right? Wrong! Much research later I've found it is common for natural gas to LP conversion stoves to lose a good deal of their oumph when converted. GE as it turns out is one of the most notorious for a serious degredation in BTU output. After exploring GE's site I found that this same stove running under LP gas is rated(for the highest burner) at 11000 BTU's! No wonder I couldn't boil water! Back to the store it went and I am still in search of a stove that will meet my needs. Don't know if this will help you or if this is the same issue you are dealing with but maybe just maybe. Good luck!
