    Similar problem, all four burner ignitors began clicking when all of the controls were turned off. We unplugged the unit for 15 minutes and then plug it in again. The clicking stopped.

    have the same problem - twice in a month - first time the ignitor wire caught fire when it started to click and flame came out of the knob -. was fixed by a company repaire person - less then a monthe later same problem as soon as you plug in electric the igniters start to click and spark We pulled plug and then put it back in next day = worked for one day and then started all over again. Now it will not stop clicking if it is plugged in

    We had the same problem. All ignitor sparks started activating for no reason. I unplugged the stove and cleaned all the burners, then plugged the stove back in. The clicking continued and won't stop.

    Ours is doing the same thing - started all of a sudden this morning. We unplug it, it stops. But it does not go away when you plug it back in. All the knobs are off - the burners appear clean underneath...

    We have two of the four igniters clicking. After some time, it stopped, and then finally caused our GFCI to trip. We have not been able to reset it.

You most likely have a defective spark module.

When I turn on a burner, all the other burners click like they are trying to turn on as well. The clicking is continuous and really annoying! Thanks for your help! Tammie


Anytime you turn on a gas range all burners click for safety reasons. If a knob has been turned by mistake the gas lights to prevent gas from escaping into the room. If you turn the control knob past the LITE position after the burner lights you should be OK and stop the clicking. If the clicking continues regardless you have a defective ignitor switch that must be replaced.

Burner igniter won't click or work


This is an easy problem to fix. If your repair man is correct and it is the spark module and not a wire harness problem you can pick up a spark module as sears for about $37 and it only takes a couple of minutes to install. Just pull off the back panel and replace the module. This is a repair that anyone can do. I would recommend unplugging the unit before replacing.

Igniter clicking when all four knobs in off position after water spill


It is possible that once the unit dries out the clicking will stop. If it doesn't, you will need to call someone to have the problem addressed. You will need a spark module and or an ignition switch(s).

First of all- when you turn any ONE of the burner knobs to "ignite" all FOUR burners will spark/click. This is normal. If you're getting a spark from the ignitors when all knobs are set to "off" then you most likely either got some moisture into one or more of the switches below the knobs (sometimes they will dry out and be fine after a while, but I have seen them burn-up/melt/arc too) OR one or more of the switches is stuck/shorted. Good luck and hope this helps.
Unplug the range before working on it and don't attempt anything you're unfamiliar or uncomfortable with.

Igniter will not turn off once burners are lit.


I've had the same problem for 2 years. Today I removed the four burner tops, the 15/16 inch bolt that holds the burners in place, took everything apart (simple connections underneath), completely cleaned and dried eveything. I also cleaned the 4 knobs and making sure the 4 swiches slide up and down freely then dried everything with a hairdryer. Is now works fine but if the problem comes back, I'll simply unplug the cooktop and light it manually. P.S. I stripped one of the large 5/16 inch bolt that had become weak and brittle. - Try using water or some liquid to loosen the bolts as necessary. Good luck, CHEERS!

Igniter stays on on all four burners all the time. Had to turn off breaker to stop. Started sparking all by itself with burner in the off position.


Usually this happens when water or some type of liquid gets on one or more of the igniter switches. Let it dry for 48 hours, turn the power back on and see if it keeps on clicking. If it does, one of the switches needs to be replaced. Not a very difficult job. Hope this helps, APP tech http://www.AppliancePartsPros.com
