Oven is approximately 6 years old. It worked fine this afternoon, but this evening when my husband came home, both of the left burners began continuously clicking. I've unplugged it for the night. Any advice? Linda
Re: Electric ignition continually clicks on left side
Sounds like the electric box sending unit needs to be cleaned and put back in. They are located under the knobs. they are square small boxes that go on the valve rod, they have two wires on the side, just unplug and lift, clean, dry good and put back in.
It's not hard at all.....Good Luck

I understand you've recently replaced the elements on your Frigidaire oven and that it is still not working. May I have your model number please? The serial tag, which lists your model number, is normally located in the storage drawer, on the right side if you have a range. If you own a wall-oven please check the front of the oven, on the left side, as you open the door. Also, think about what may have happened prior to this occurrence. For instance, did you notice any strange functions or any other error codes prior to this issue? With this information I can better determine what may be causing the issue at hand. Thank you! - Z
Good Afternoon Friend, thank you for allowing me to assist you!
I understand you are experiencing an issue with the oven of your Frigidaire range. May I have your model number please? You can normally locate the serial tag (which provides your model number) in the storage drawer, on the right side. Also, think about what may have happened prior to this occurrence. For instance, did you notice any strange functions or any other error codes prior to this issue? Do the burners/elements work? With this information I can assist you better in pinpointing the problem.
Meanwhile, let's try resetting your range by either unplugging it or flipping the household circuit breaker to the off position. It is important to wait approximately ten minutes and then turn your range on. If resetting the power does not correct the issue, could you please advise me if the issue continues or provides an error code. Thank you! -Z
Sorry, I don't have a solution, but a similar problem. My CE901 is 6 years old. One of the regulators broke after one year. The repair (under warranty) caused an electric fire a couple of weeks later. After much complaining, I got a replacement cooktop from F&P. Now, 5 years later, one regulator stopped working, no longer turns on the element. (I guess that's better than no longer turning it off.) You are not alone. Seems like F&P is incapable of producing a simple regulator that works reliably.
Electric gas igniters sometimes get stuck in one position causing a clicking sound. The clicking sound that you hear is the electric arc that is pulsing from the igniter conductor (wire) to ground (the gas burner). It receives power from the electrical outlet that the stove is plugged into.
Residue from food and sometimes cleaning products may be preventing the igniter from producing a spark (Arc) to the base of the burner. This is a common problem that occurs when the stove has been cleaned or food is allowed to build up. Make sure that the igniter and the burner base are clean and dry. This will help with proper operation. Oven cleaner and a small tooth brush may be used to accomplish this. Another problem with ignition may occur if you have too little (touching) or too much space between the igniter and the base of the burner; it will prevent the burner from igniting. You should only have a little more space than the thickness of a nickel between the burner base and the igniter. A good “blue” arc from the igniter to the burner base is optimal. If this doesn’t work, you may need to replace the electric igniter module. Good luck.
its a gas cooktop it has to be plugged in somewhere op e the cabinet and unplug it. possible that the electrodes got wet and click from a false sense of continuity, after being unplugged overnight that will sometimes be enough. you also might have a bad start switch on one of hte burners causing the machine to click automatically. try unplugging over night first
I have a viking gas cooktop. The ignitor on one of my front burners wouldn't stop clicking even after the flame ignited. I swapped that ignitor with the ignitor from a back burner, expecting that the problem was with the ignitor and that the back burner would start to click incessantly, but at least I'd have my favorite front burner for use. Instead, the front burner was then only clicking 50% of the time and the back burner was fine, suggesting the problem was related to the burner not the ignitor. I pulled the front ignitor a bit away from the burner and now it is working normally. Hope this helps.
