No matter which burner I try to turn on, the same
Hello- On modern gas cooktops and ranges when you turn on one burner ALL the burners will click, spark, until that burner is lit. I would ask if the other burners are lighting ok or do you have to use a match? Do you smell gas when all the burners are OFF? Feel free to reply and if you could provide the Model number of the unit that would be helpful. Best regards.

My jgp389 cooktop has a problem with the burner
The problem is too much gunk/dirk on the knob control switch, you will need to clean the knob control switch first and see if there is difference, if not, then replace all the knob switch. lift the lid of your cooktop up. Give it a rap with the heel of
your hand if it's stuck. If your cooktop has sealed burners, identified
by the igniter or little nub at the back of each burner, the lid wont shift. Lift the burner assembly off the support arm as you slide it away from
the burner valve port. It just rests there. Remove the shipping screws
if they're still in place and clean the switch knob one after the other, if the problem still persist after cleaning the switch knobs, it means they are worn out, replace them all.

Gas ignitor keeps trying to
Hi and welcome to FixYa. I am Kelly. On your cook-top the gas igniters are cycled on and off by a ceramic and copper switch on the front of each of the gas valves. Some of them are in wired Series ...i.e any burner on will cycle all igniters on the cook top and some of them are in Parallel where individual burners are controlled by each gas burner control knob. Inside these tiny ceramic switches there is a flat thin strip of copper that as the gas valve is rotated a cam of the switch actuates pushes the copper strip against the fixed contact. Those little strips over time either break or get bent and stay against the fixed contact. Hence you have and igniter on when the burner control is off. The only fix is to find out which little ceramic switch on the front of the gas valve is stuck. You do it with an Ohm meter POWER off. They all should read open with the burner controls off. The one that reads continuity across the 2 wires is the bad switch.
Thanks for Choosing FixYa.

I have a ge jgp932
There would be 2 nuts that you would need to remove. Spark module is screwed to the upper back of the oven on the right side. Use a nut driver to take out the screws from the upper back of the oven.
Now you would see six wires - four to the burners and two to the power supply. Check for the four wires hooked to the igniters on the burner to the back of the burner. To remove the wires, just pull the connector off the spark module.
Check out the schematic of the cook top---

Hope this helps... If it does please do not forget to accept the solution or post back for assistance.

GE gas cooktop with 4
Sounds like a typical case of replacing the ignitor module.
Open the cook top and visually inspect all the porcelain elctrodes for breaks and crud build up etc. be sure the power is off...if all looks fine replace the ignitor module.
