Kitchen aid cooktop got wet wont ignight?


Usually Spark Switches might get shorted out or spark module went bad, but first unplug your stove and let it sit for a while (1-2 days) then try it again, if still nothing, then You will need to open up stove to check. Here is the video I made. Screws would not come off, so i had to replace almost all components on it. Hope It Helps.

Hi abbilou_78,

I believe your ignition switches have come in to contact with either water or moisture.

Please read my below Tip on how to fix the problem:

If it does not solve your problem, I'd suggest replacing the ignition switches.

We are having a dinner party and our 5 burner gas pro series frigidaire stove top is clicking. I tried to turn off and clean the ignitors but nothing seems to work. Please help!!!


you have a stuck ignitor switch. they are mounted just below the knobs. you cant get to them until you remove the unit and then the top.
if you spilled water or something boiled over, it could get into the switches and cause this.
if you reach under the cooktop, in you cabinet, you can just unplug it from the outlet, or try to shut off the breaker to the unit. that will stop the clicking and you can deal with the repairs after your party.

Gas igniter does not stop spark


Most likely some water got under the top near the knob shafts while cleaning or something boiled over. Despite the cause, the switch or switches are shorting out and we're talking 120 volts so it could be dangerous. Unplug the power cord under the counter and let it all dry for a day or 2, you could speed that up with a hairdryer but the burners will still light with a match so why rush it?  Good luck and don't use so much water when cleaning.

3 of 4 knobs do not compress to turn on gas


You must replace those controls. Cleaning or loosening them up would be temporary at best and the next time they stick it could be in the open position. Safety first...Eric

GE Profile Gas cooktop stove- buzzer won't stop


Unfortunately you have to wait until it dries out. I have tried hairdryer before but most of the time I have had to leave it off overnight. FYI if you dont shut off at the circuit breaker and the sparking continues it will short out and definitely get worse
