Question about KitchenAid KGRA806PSS Gas Kitchen Range

1 Answer

I have a gas KA stove top - the electric igniters now click (often all of them in unison) even when the gas is off - just starting one burner makes them all stop - only way to quiet them is to pull the plug which is not in a convenient place - what should I do?

Hi, is your range gas with electric ignition? And are the igniters constantly clicking with the burners off? If so it sounds like you may have spilled liquids into the electric switches at the burner control knobs causing them to short. This is a common problem and the best fix is to unplug the range from the power and let the range dry out for 24 to 48 hours. Sometimes using a hairdryer can speed up the drying process. If you did not spill or get any liquids into the burner ignition switches then there is a posibillity that one of the switches is defective. You would need to test each igniter switch with a continuity tester and the burner knobs in the off position(power unplugged for safety) to see which switch is defective and replace that switch.

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