there is a switch that is broken behind the knobs they cost no more than $15.00. remove the knob so that you can see it it's white in color.

Xl44 top burners light


There are a few things that can do this... First check the burner top to make sure the holes are not blocked. 2nd, Are the other ignitors sparking? If so then try rotating the slack in the burners left and right - this works sometimes. If not then try placing a screwdriver (you holding the handle only) and touch the burner and lean the screwdriver towards the ignitor... making the spark gap smaller. If you have used the ignition without a burner in place the ignition pack will short out inside it and there will not be a spark until the gap is very small. 3rd, are the ceramic part of the ignitors cracked at the base... take care when washing as they break easy if caught on the cloth. The ignition pack works in pairs so having one work suggests the pair of this one is something in the lead if there is no spark... A huge spillover causing a short or a bad earth... check the burners are firmly in place. There is more but too much detail to post here. Good luck

Pressure washed grill. since none of the ignitors will spark...assuming due to the water hitting something it shouldn't have. how do i replace and what part would i need?


You are not clear as to the make / model of your unit so I will address general solutions. These spark modules generate high voltage 12-25 thousand volts. Since dirty water conducts electricity any residual water in the grill can cause a problem by conducting electricity in the wrong place. If you are able to safely light the grill with a match or lighter then doing so will help dry out the wetted grill components.
When you push the button if you can hear the clicking noice then the spark module is good. If no clicking noise is heard then check for wetted ignitor, bad batteries, or replace the ignitor. If you can hear clicking but have no spark at the burners, then the first thing to do is let it dry out. second, if you are able, ensure the electrodes (the part by the burner where the spark jumps the gap) are clear of all debris. If this is clear, verify all the wiring is attached to the applicable grounds, ignitors (the electronic box or piezo that generates the spark) and electrodes. If one wire is off at least one, if not two, spark points will stop working.
If this is a piezo ignition (one push of the button = one spark or a rotory knob that makes 3 sparks per 180 degrees of revolution) water can get into these units and they will work fine once they dry out.
If this is a battery operated unit make sure the battery is dry and functional, dry by hand don't wait for it to air dry and try again. I hope this helps Happy grilling

My GE Profile JPG636 cooktop has an ignitor problem. It clicks constantly, and all the ignitors on all 5 burners are 'going off'. It happens every 8 or 10 seconds whether we're cooking or not. If anyone...


The most common cause for this issue is from liquid getting into the ignition system for the range. If someone has spilled water or other liquids into the burner knobs or the ignition system it will cause an electrical short in the system causing the igniters to come on constantly when the knobs are off. The fix to this is to unplug the range and wait 24 hours for the liquids to dry up. You can speed up this process with a hair dryer pointed at the burner stems(knobs removed). Once the liquids have dried up the problem should stop. I would not leave it plugged in until then because the ignition system could be damaged from the constant sparking.

Igniter doesn't spark on only one burner


There are three parts to the ignition system typically.

The ignitor that is either in the burner or outside the burner.

The spark ignitor switch that is located on the burner control. (( one for each control ))

The spark modual. the modual creates the hi-voltage spark.

If the burner that does not ignight with its control does not spark but does spark with one of the other controls then the spark ignitor control switch is bad.
You can test it with one of the other burner control knobs. (( just try a working burnder and when it clicks look at the bad burners ignitor and look for the spark.))

If the bad burner that wont ignight does not spark then either your modual is bas or the ignitor is shorting out.

If you see any little spark but it does not spark from point A to Point B like the other burners then your ignitor is shorting and should be replaced.

If your ignitor is ceramic and it is cracked, then it should be replaced.

The electronic ignitor on front right burner no longer works.


All ignitors should fire regardless of which burner is turned on. See if the right front will light up if you turn on another burner or look for a spark. If not, the ignitor is probably fouled and needs a good cleaning. If the right front burner will spark or ignite when a different burner is turned on, it is the right front control switch - not an easy fix. When cleaning the cook top, if you remove the knobs, any liquid that gets into the switches will short them out. Found that out the hard way.

Gas igniters on all five burners keep sparking (JennAir CCG556B)


Try cleaning around all the ignitors at each burner. Look for build up of cleansing product and/or food. Sometimes all it takes is a good cleaning and removal of a buildup to solve this. Worth trying before replacing a bunch of parts!

DCS range igniter won't stop


Hey all ... I just had a repairman fix my DCS cooktop that was doing the same thing ... ignitor problem. He replaced it and it's good as new. (Cleaning also did NOT work for me.) It cost me $216 for the repair. If you can find the part, it's pretty easy to replace. Just take off the front knobs (be careful as there is a 'ring' inside the neck of the knob) and unscrew the front. You will need a special screwdriver - looks like a star - but just snip the plastic straps holding the original ignitor in place and put the new one on the same way as the old one. You should be good as new. REMEMBER TO TURN OFF THE BREAKER!!! I can't imagine it would take more than an hour (tops) 'cause it looked pretty easy.

Jennair gas cooktop


Sounds like you got water into the ignitor switches on under the knobs. Sometimes it takes 48 hours for this to dry out. Or you can pull the knobs and use a hair dryer on to dry out the switches. Personally I just advise pulling the plug and wait. This is a common issue with gas cooktops and can also happen with liberal use of cleaning products sprayed in the know area.
