    range igniter will not shut off

  • c_sumner Sep 13, 2008

    I took everything apart and used my meter to attempt to troubleshoot this problem. It appears that the igniter is broken. My DCS grill uses an ELTEC igniter part number 18351. There's a web site that lists them for sale for $89.

Having serious problem with the ignite. When I turn it on and its lit the clicking of the spark does not stop. Also, one of ranges will not light at all! Help.


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.

New stove gas is flowin but electrodes wont ignite turn knob to high light with lighter and flame shoots out but dont stay on please help


  • Where starting is manual (there is a 'start' position on the control(s), a set of switch contacts on the control(s) provides power to the ignition module.
    • A problem of no spark with only one control indicates that the fault is with it or its wiring.
    • A problem with continuous sparking even with all the controls off or in their normal positions indicates a short - either due to a defective switch in one of the controls or contamination (e.g., spilled liquid) bypassing the switch contacts.

  • Where starting is automatic, an electronic sensor, thermocouple, or bimetal switch provides power to the ignition module as needed.
Before you blame the ignition module for either lack of spark or continuous spark, make sure the wiring is in good condition and completely dry and clean ( or reasonably clean). Confirm that proper voltage is reaching the module with a multimeter or neon test lamp. The modules are quite robust:
  • Any liquid that may have dripped into the module may result in temporary or permanent failure. Fortunately it may be possible to pop off the bottom cover (with power OFF or the module removed!) and clean it. The most likely failure would be the SCR if you are into component level repair. Else, just replace it.
  • WARNING: There are several capacitors inside that may be charged to as much as 300 volts. The charge they can hold is probably not dangerous but may be painful or startling. Discharge these before touching anything inside or attempting to check components. Use a screwdriver blade or test clips and then confirm that they are discharged with a multimeter.
  • Contamination of the controls from spilled liquid may result in continuous activation of the ignition module since any electrical leakage across the switch contacts will likely be enough to activate it. Remove the control panel cover and dry it out or unplug the range or oven for a couple of days. If the contamination is not just plain water, it is a good idea to clean it thoroughly to prevent future problems.
  • Spills into the area of the electrodes at the gas burner assembly may short out the ignition for ALL the burners since they probably use the same module. Again, clean and dry it out or let it dry out on its own (if just water).
These are solutions for standard modules and replacements should be available from your local appliance repair shop or parts supplier. An exact mechanical match is not needed as long as the specifications are compatible.

Ignitors keep firing by themselves after my aunt cleaned them 24 hours ago After she did the major cleaning of the stove I used the oven and it worked fine. I lit a burner (Probably front?) and the left...


Apparently there was a water spill around the burner control knob and in the burner itself; We ran the burner to create heat and then turned it off and let the water dry out and evaporate from the burner and igniter area.

Igniter


Does the knob control both the gas and spark, try turning on the knob only, if it starts to spark right away then it is possible that the switch is bad. because most of these units are designed where you turn on the gas then push in and hold the knob to ignite then release and spark should stop.

Viking stove top gas burners


I have a VGR36 6 burner. All the spark ignitors stopped clicking after a major boilover spill. Liquid got into the spark module compartment and caused a short. The paper wiring diagram under the spark module protective cover was burned from the short. I had a Harper 6542 non-reignition spark module but the replacement part is now a Tytronics PA020041 Spark Module. I bought kit #000511-000 from allvikingparts.com which includes the module, a black jumper wire, a green ground wire and an instruction sheet.

It's not difficult to replace the spark module but the 2 screws holding down the module toward the back of the stove are not visable and accessible. I used a thumbwheel rachet with a long philips screw driver bit (for cordless drills) to remove and replace the screws. The wiring was simple. The 2 power wires need to be wired to the correct polarity on the module, but the remaining 4 ignition wires can be wired to any of the 4 terminals on the new module. All the wires have plug in connectors and no cutting and splicing is necessary, but I had to cut and splice because one wire shorted and the insulation was burned from the major spill on my stove.
