Igniter not working

Curiously, one day the igniters for my gas cooktop ceased working. For whatever reason, they do not click, obviously not working. The cooktop is appoximately 9 years old but otherwise works fabulously. I have been very happy up to this point with the product. Reading one of the similar situations from another consumer nakes me nervous - is it really not a do-it-yourself repair? If you can shed any light on the subject, I would appreciate it. Thanks so much.

SOURCE: Whirlpool Cooktop igniters keep firing, even after igniting

when you cleaned the unit you may have gotten water in side the igniter, dry it out w/ a hair dryer. Once dry should work .

SOURCE: Dacor gas range igniter clicking

I had clicking after the burners were burning. Problem was that I'd removed the inner ring during cleaning and did not put it back properly. There are little nubs that must be lined up properly. If you don't, ALL the burners can start to act wonky when you try to ignite them. Problem solved.

On a 4 burner Gas cooktop - all 4 burners get gas but why does the igniter only work with the front 2?


Usually that's caused by clogged holes in the burners. I clean it out using a toothpick.

See where the range is plugged in. Check to see if there is power there. If so, the igniter must be replaced. This is not a difficult repair. I would guess there is a power problem, blown circuit breaker, open GFCI outlet or the plug is out.

My cooktop igniter keeps on igniting for no reason


This problem is due to a short to wires contact on the igniter sometimes this happens after a cleaning of the cook top with water so in this case you just use hair dryer and dry out the ingniter.

Other possible reasons are over heating of the ingniter contact so you have to remove it and clean wire contacts.

Finally the igniter contacts are melt together or sometimes full of burned oil and they need to be replaced. Inginter is not expensive part.

Viking cooktop gas unit ignition clicks on all burners when I use


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.

The igniter on the right front burner of my GE Gas cooktop does not work....I must use a lighter or match to ignite....What can I do? There is no clicking sound when I turn on the burner?


all burner igniters work at the same time - you may have a faulty electronic spark unit. change the spark unit. go to repair clinic dot come for the unit. also would be wise to check the ingniter start switch on the gas burner control knob

Ignition is clicking all the time, whether the gas is lit or not.


The clicking is the igniter. If it is clicking and not lighting, then you may have to purchase an igniter kit and replace it. the relays can go bad, or igniter fails.
