Bertazzoni starter will not stop clicking

I'm having an immediate problem. Starter to start stove will not stop clicking even when I finally get a flame by using a barbecue lighter.  For some reason the flame will not come on.  Because of the constant clicking after I have the aforementioned flame by lighter, the clicking continues  I finally unplugged the stove.  I do need to cook dinner soon and would like someone to help me. I'm visiting. My daughter just had a baby and I'm the one cooking. Another complaint:   I love the heat of this stove but the flame will not go low. If I didn't move the pan (oatmeal, for example, the oatmeal would burn). Moving the pan to the side, cockeyed, keeps the oatmeal warm and creates a layer stuck to the pan. I frankly don't like this stove.  Help!!!!
Chernins where my son-in-law bought this stove is closed today, of all things!

    You said "check your electrical contact."  I plugged the stove into the electrical outlet and right off the clicking started.  At least I pushed in the stove knob and then let go and the gas came on, with the clicking continuing.


    I turned the knob to off, clicking continues.  I saw the white piece with the light sparks.  What do you mean "check the electrical contact."  How do I check that white piece with small sparks?  Be elementary in your response.  I'm not familiar with this stove and I do not know anything about electricity.

    FixYa,


    Please have someone read my additional comment and respond.  I don't want to type up the comments (2) again.  Thanks.

    Please see my three earlier comments about one burner which won't stop clicking even with the burner in the off position. Now, it lights, but still clicks when off. The other three burners work fine.

    Well, after the second solution, the clicking continued to midnight. I unplugged the stove. This morning I plugged in the stove, started te burner causing the problem, clicking began immediately upon plugging in, then turned on the troublesome burner, released, the gas came on and flamed burned, clicking then stopped. So, it seems to have fortuitously stopped clicking on its own.

Shigeno, its sounds like the ignition board going to that burner is acting up, another possibility could be the grounding wire to that burner is not grounded properly (dirty).

KGCT365BBL stove top electric starter won't stop clicking


either you got water or spray cleaner under the knobs making (shorting)the circuit for the ignition. or you got a bad ig switch on one of the burner valves.
If its water, Unplug the range for a few days till it drys.

Electric start stuck. I've now unplugged stove to stop the sparker. It sparks every burner when plugged back in.


First, start by abandoning FixYA, as they are totally worthless, misleading, and a complete waste of time.

Then google Gas range problems. There you will find blogs that are free, immediate, and helpful. All the valves have a springloaded switch that activates the sparker. When grease gets in the way, the spring cannot overcome the tackiness. I simply removed the valve knob in question and used a flat head screwdriver and gently eased the switch up, then used a paper towel with alcohol and glided it in around the troubled area to remove the gook. Once I got rid of the gook, the switch moved freely, as it should, and the continuous sparking ceased.

Maytag Gemini gas stove top ... while starting one of the front burners, the starter knob in the back started on fire. Help!!


You have a gas leak which resulted in the unwanted fire. This has the potential to be serious or deadly. This is one time when you need to get a pro in there to stop this leak and get your stove safe again.

Gas stove /electric starter won't click to start cleaned stove


Try cleaning the starter with rubbing alcohol and toothbrush. There might be soap or boiled over residue on the starter. If that doesn't work, try using fine 150 grit sandpaper and gentle clean the starter with it. This problems drove me nuts too. Good luck!

Gas oven won't light (by 2 users)
Posted by MBeird on Jan 18, 2008
Can hear the clicking of the auto starter when starting the oven, but it stops after 5 seconds and then the oven simply fills with gas. Broiler still works fine as do the stove top burners. Any thoughts?

Good question? You may have a plugged up burner and or the pipes or jets may not be adjusted correctly and it could be your igniter on the gas range because it is not igniting the spark to create the flame. You may want to have it check out with an authorized service repair tech to make sure it is safe and will function well. So if you need further assistance, please feel free to contact your local appliance dealer in your area or in the yellow pages, or contact the factory phone number or website to further assist you with your questions.
