Credo Glass Cooktop ignition click

We have a Creda glass cooktop. The ignition switches on the burners will not stop clicking, even with the burners on. We believe this is b/c the burners got wet. For a while, we could turn on the flame and it would stop clicking, but start again as soon as we turned the flame off. Now that isn't working and we can't reach anyone at Credo till Monday. I tried turning off all the breakers in the kitchen except the fridge, and that didn't work. I have no idea where the main switch or plug or whatever is b/c it's built into the countertop. (It was here when we moved in.)

Even the dog has a headache. HELP!

    We baught the stove in 95, it worked fine for a few years. It started clicking about about 2001. We had the ignition changed at at cost of about $200. Now it's been clicking for about a year off and on. It's too expensive to keep changing the ignition. Also the metal rings have deteriated (rusted through)
    Does anyone know where one can buy parts for the stove. This is a problem when one buys a foreign made product

SOURCE: All the Burners click when I just turn on 1 knob

The manual tells you this will happen. Just adjust the flame for your intended use and start cooking

SOURCE: spark ignitor won't stop clicking

Dry the ignitors and see if that works. If not, then get new ignitors.

SOURCE: Igniter continuously clicks

I had this problem. It was caused by the burner "thinking" the flame had turned off--it was clicking because it was sparking to re-start the flame from the gas. I was able to fix it by tightening a flat, thin nut at the top of the burner.

SOURCE: Igniters do not spark on one side of cooktop

Is the gas able to flow freely through and out of the bad burners? Sounds like they may be clogged somehow

Fix the eyes on the glass top

Hello jackie wakefield, thank you for your post! Based off the information you have provided you would like to fix the burners located under your Frigidaire range glass top. In order to replace the burner you would need to remove the cooktop. Regrettably this is not a simple DIY job. I would recommend having professional technician come out to your home for proper disassembly of the cooktop and replacement of any electrical components. Hopefully this information is helpful. -Matt

Kitchenaid glass cooktop element won't heat

You will need to check the "infinite switch" for that burner. Below is a video to show you how to do that. The model is different but the test is the same. Here is the switch if you should find it bad.

I want to lift the cook top on GE range jbp82shss so that I can clean out all the dust. can I do this

Yes. Disconnect power to range. Open oven door and remove hex head screws at front edge of cooktop from the bottom side. Lift up front of cooktop. Burner units can then be removed from the underside of the cooktop. Be careful not to damage the gray insulating material around the burner elements if you remove the elements from the cooktop glass.

Ge profile gas range. one burner with no clicking and no ignition

You may have a bad burner switch. If you turn one of the other burner switches to make the spark modules spark look and see if the electrode is sparking at the bad burner. Most of the spark modules send a spark to all 4 burners when activated. If it sparks when another burner is activated open the valve and see if the burner will ignite. If so you probably have a bad burner switch.

It is a gas cooktop and the igniter for one of the burners will not stop sparking.

One of the surface switches is bad. Remove the panel to access the switches. There is one on each surface control stem. Remove a wire from each switch until the clicking stops. That will be the bad switch when the clicking stops. Replace the switch.

GE EVOLUTION Glass top. The hot surface(Glass top)

Individual burners, located directly under the cooktop glass, contain a temp sensor which lights up the hot surface lamp when they sense a hot condition. If the light stays on after all burners are cool, one of the sensors has shorted out. The sensors are an integral part of the burner, so the offending burner must be replaced to solve your constant on hot light.
