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

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.

My DCS range burners with electric start.

Very likely the spark module. All four are supposed to click when one is turned on, however they are supposed to stop when the burner ignites. Replace the module and test. Good Luck, Appliance Specialists

Bosch igniters firing continuously

each of the element controls has a internal switch that when it is turned on "first click" sends power to the igniters the switches a wired in a pattern known as parallel meaning any one of the switches will start the igniter process .try this turn off all the knobs and try playing with each switch rolling it through the ignition phase in to the cook setting and see if you can determine whitch swich is the culprit if not then try turning off the electricity and the gas to the stove turn each switch on and roll through to the cook setting you are lisening for a barely audible click the one that is different from the other or has no sound is probably your issue failing this you are going to need a continuity meter (used with the power and gas shut off) and some additional instructions... ummm gas and sparks be careful seems a little unnessacary but please do Good Luck

I have a GE gas stove (model # JGBP29MEM1BS)and the ignition switch (thing that creates a spark to light the gas) is going off when the knobs are turned all the way off. Is there a switch that controls the...

There are 4 switches. One behind each knob. You will have to remove the panel to access the switches to find which one is stuck. Once you open the panel,remove one wire at a time until the clicking stops. That will be the bad switch. It must be replaced.

When I turn on a burner, all the other burners click like they are trying to turn on as well. The clicking is continuous and really annoying! Thanks for your help! Tammie

Anytime you turn on a gas range all burners click for safety reasons. If a knob has been turned by mistake the gas lights to prevent gas from escaping into the room. If you turn the control knob past the LITE position after the burner lights you should be OK and stop the clicking. If the clicking continues regardless you have a defective ignitor switch that must be replaced.

GE profile glass stove top

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.

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'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.
