Ignition "clicks" forever

When I turn the knob on, the electric ignition starts "clcking" to start the fire. It never stops until I turn the knob off.
Any help?
The range is brand new!!!
Thanks

    Hi,

    problem fixed. The electric outlet was installed with inverted polarity. Switching the polarity back to normal has fixed the problem. Thanks!!!

If only one out of the surface burners clicking, rotate the cap perhaps it doesnt sit properly,or check the electrode if broken replace it.

If it was all surface burners clicking. replace your spark module

Ingiter will either fail to start burner or won't quit clicking on the 1% of the times it does start up the burner


Hi look for adjustments to the lighter and also there should be a sensor tat sees the fire , this sesor allows the main gas to turn on, but only if it feels the heat , kind of like a thermocouple , if you think about about any type problem like this: what is it not doing ? then think what could cause this >/? if you go about any repair this way there is nothing you can't fix unless you need a part !

When I go to start my grill, I turn on the gas and then the knob on the right side to spark the gas for the fire. When I turn the knob it does not spark the gas. Hoe do I troubleshoot what is wrong....


It sounds like you have a rotary piezo igniter, which means you get one click, or spark, per rotation. If there is no click when you turn the knob, or the knob spins freely when you turn it, it has probably broken. If you pull the knob of, there should be two screws behind the knob that holds the igniter to the front panel. Hopefully you can remove the screws and reach behind the panel to remove the igniter. If this wont work, you have to remove the front panel. If the igniter is not broken, then check the wires and electrode for shorts.

My car djust clicks when i turn the ignition. For sometime now after i have made a journey and returned to start the car within a short time -1/2 hour or so the car either clicks or it just turns but...


It's the classic symptom of a failed starter solenoid. This is the electrical switch which uses the small current from the wiring to your ignition switch to turn on the huge current direct from the car battery needed to operate the starter. They don't last forever.

The solenoid is mounted onto your starter motor and to replace it you need to replace the entire starter.

In the meantime, you may be able to get by by giving the solenoid a sharp tap with a hammer either before starting or during starting (assistant required). If you can't get a hammer down there then place a long metal bar or screwdriver against the solenoid and hammer the end of it. This won't fix the fault and won't work indefinitely but it may get you by until you can replace the starter at the soonest opportunity.

Hello - I ran out of propane - How do I light the ignition?


Your range is electric ignition and should not require any relighting. There may be air in the line and can be purged at the cook top burners. Just turn the burner knob on until it starts clicking and let it click until the burner ignites. The oven and broiler will then light normally.

You got one or more of the burner switches wet. (It usually happens when you wash the knobs and water stays in the holes until you replace it on the shaft) If just water they may work after a day or two. try using a hair dryer, Keep it at least 12 inches away. If oven cleaner or other chemical got inside switches they may need to be replaced. If you can't dry them out. Disconnect the wires from all but one switch at a time and see which one/s need to be replaced. Sometimes the electric part of the switch can be seperated from the gas part and replaced seperately. DO NOT LEAVE THE STOVE PLUGGED IN until you fix this problem. There have been reports of fires started from this electrical problem. You could also burn out the spark ignightor. The fire problems have been mostly with Maytag/Jenn air products but my whirlpool blew a fuse and shot sparks when this happened to me. I just replacet the whole cooktop as my gas valves were one piece units and way to expensive to repair.

Igniter


Does the knob control both the gas and spark, try turning on the knob only, if it starts to spark right away then it is possible that the switch is bad. because most of these units are designed where you turn on the gas then push in and hold the knob to ignite then release and spark should stop.

Igniter


igniter's are bad and, or, a short in the wiring or switch. replace the igniter, then check to see if problem still exists, you can also check wires going from igniter to switch with ohm meter for continuity and shorted wires.
