When I try to use my gas cooktop, it makes a loud "pop" sound and has a big electrical spark that smells like fireworks then it flips the breaker.. Any ideas??


The electrical wiring under the burners has been short
probably from liquids leaks during cooking.


That is why you had the spark. The only electrical part you
have to your coo top is the electric ignite nothing else. So you should remove
all burners' assemblies from the top so to reach the bottom part where the gas
pipes are located and the ignite part no 318 in drawing Spark module
Part Number:
AP3778816made by GE.



So first you can use a hair
dryer do try it out and be sure there is not and liquid in it and put
electrical plug again to test it. If you still have the same problem, replace
the Spark module with a new one.

How do I clean my new electric Jenn-air cooktop with its glass top? Do I need a special cleaner for the glass?


  • Step 1 Wipe up spills as soon as they happen with a clean dry towel. According to the Jenn-Air website, for glass top cooking surfaces, you should do this even if it is hot since it will be harder to clean up later. Be careful not to get burned.
  • Step 2 Use a cooktop cleaner once it is cool. You can also use dishwashing detergent and water or just a baking soda paste (made with water).
  • Step 3 Apply the cleaner to a sponge, cloth or paper towel. For more stubborn stains, you can use a non-abrasive or "scratchless" pad.
  • Step 4 Rub the soiled areas until clean. Rinse well, especially if you used the baking soda paste as that can leave a residue.
  • Step 5 Use a razor blade for burned on and crusty stains that will not come off using the previous methods. Jenn-Air states to hold it at a 30-degree angle to carefully remove the stain.

    All 4 of the hobs started sparking/ clicking after cleaning the cooker top. Now they won't stop sparking/ clicking.


    there is probably some water in unit that is causing the unit switches to not work. you can try to use a hair blower to thoroughly dry components.

    Viking 30" gas professional series cooktop sparking problem


    And before that Most likely one of the ignition switches (they are under knobs) got shorted possibly due to spilled liquid or a cleaning stuff sprayed on. In that case it should stop sparking after a switch drys. Still no go replace the spark control unit.

    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

    Electric starters keep firing after I sprayed cleaner


    your spark modual got shorted with the liquid you sprayed in there or spilled you can try unplugging it overnight to let it dry. at least 24 hours or you can take the cooktop of and get a hairdryer and dry out the spark modual.or if you wait 24 hours - 3 days and still not dried out you need to replace your spark modual but more than likley give it time it will fix itself.

    Guy from Fagor said brown & blue go to black & red. White and ground together go to green & yellow. Hope he's right.

    Fagor hob touch control


    Our hob has the same problem. I would really like to know the reason for this! Try using a rubber eraser instead of your finger - this works every time with our hob. Covering Up and Down arrows with the rubber, zeros it instantly just like using both fingers. Hope this helps.

    Spark ignitor won't stop clicking


    the spacing between the ignitor and the plat is less the minimum. that will cause the ignitor to ignite prematurely. use a small screw driver or a nail filler clean out the space between the ignotor and the plat.
