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!

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.
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.
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.
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!
IWAS TOLD TO DRY IT OUT WITH MY VACUUM BLOWER WHICH DID NOT WORK THEN HE GAVE ME PLAN B.WHICH WAS TO COOK BREAKFAST EVEN THOUGH IT WAS STILL CLICKING AND THE HEAT FROM THE STOVE WOULD PROBABLY DRY IT OUT......IT DID AND IT STOP CLICKING!

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 igniteron 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.
