Each of the knobs has a little white rotary switch on it's shaft below the cooktop. You've likely got water in one of those switches and it's making the connection in the switch to start the igniter circuit. Unplug/turn off the breaker to the unit. If it's just water and not a sauce or noodle water or something else impure, you may be able to let it dry out without too much trouble. You could try pulling off the knobs and sucking at the openings with a wet/dry vac to try to get more water out of the switches. The worry is corrosion from being wet too long. If it isn't working after drying out, you'll need a new set of switches. http://www.appliancepartspros.com/part_details.aspx?part_id=3185909

My GE Monogram gas range will not light. The igniter keeps going off but the gas will not light.


Hi, sometimes cooking spills stop the ignitor from working. Clean the cook top thoroughly and try it again. Spills can also make the ignitor go off randomly when you are not operating your cooker. Check if the ignition point where the zap comes from is not turned or bent too far from its original position. If you have a gas shut off make sure it is fully open to supply enough gas. If all else fails buy a cheap hand held ignitor to start your gas stove. If the cause is a spill which sometimes the problem can persist even after cleaning it may take a while for it to work again. If the problem is with all six burners then your ignitor probably needs replacing. When you hear the ignitor zap check to see if the electronic zap appears to jump across to the edge of the burner. If it doesn't it will not light the flame no matter how many times you try. I hope this helps you.

My Jenn Air Electric stove is making a clicking noise. When I put my hand on one of the cook top knobs I can actually feel a vibration when the click occurs. What is this?


Gas stove? LP? It is probably the electric spark ignitor. Many times when you clean the stove top water from the sponge gets below. The water droplets (align mysteriously) make the connection between the wires, and the stove thinks it's supposed to be igniting. When the water evaporates, the switch will work fine again & the clicking should only occur when igniting & then backed off.

This happened to me once before.

Igniter will not turn off. Makes a clicking sound


Hi, normally what causes the igniter to keep clicking is spilling water or something down into the knob area. The water is causing a short circuit in the switch which is mounted on each burner valve shaft. If unplugging the range for several days to allow drying doesn't fix the problem, then one of the switches will need to be replaced.

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

Igniter clicking when all four knobs in off position after water spill


It is possible that once the unit dries out the clicking will stop. If it doesn't, you will need to call someone to have the problem addressed. You will need a spark module and or an ignition switch(s).

No Ignition


Dirt. Spilled oil, grease, milk etc. act as isolator and prevent contact between burner and casing (mass). You need to clean up burners, scrub all the dirt and make sure their seats are cleaned too (brass elements below burners).
