Igniter "clicking" on its own...

Last night, in the middle of the night, the igniter of my Tappan Gas Stove started to "click" over and over as though it was trying to light. All burners were turned off. Also, while clicking, there were small sparks coming from underneath the burner while it was clicking.

GE stove JGSP28 igniter has been clicking non-stop for the last 2weeks. Blow drying the burners has slowed down the clicking to every 5sec. Front two burners seem to be clicking at the same time while...


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 make need to replace the electric igniter module. Good luck.

Hi, I own a Tappan oven..model #TGF364ASF..the


Hi an welcome to FixYa. I am Kelly.

If nothing lights... i.e burner or oven there are only 2 things that can cause this problem. A failed ignition module or a wiring problem. The wiring problem can be a simple short or a broken power lead. All of the stove top ignitors are in a series parallel connection and if one of the burmer control shorts you loose the stove top. With nothing is lighting oven and burners it sure points toward the ignition module or power to the module.

Thanks for using FixYa.

Kelly

Note... The ignition module itself is not cheap.

Tappan gas range electric pilots will not light


The gas line in your Tappan could be closed or

You have to light burners on stovetop with a match all the time.


The pilots for the range top are beneath the top of the range top. YOu will see them if they are there. YOu stove may use electronic ignition and you can hear the sparking when you turn the knob to the "light" position.

If it is electronic ignition, make sure the stove is plugged into an operating outlet

GE profile gas stove igniter don't stop igniting


take a look at the igniter located in the center of two burners. clean the gap with a stiff brush between the eletrode and the upper plate. the distance is preset at the factory. you may have enough buildup to close the gap enough to trigger the igniter.
