Question about Wolf Range 18 in. SPR-100 Gas Cooktop
The ignition spark for one of the burners does not stop clicking. When I turn on that burner it stops but otherwise continually keeps going. I have tried all other alternatives (changing the pieces that distribute the gas from another burner, etc). It is driving the family crazy, Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated. hs
My new Wolf R304 burners click on high when there is a pan on the burner, but not if there is no pan. Local repair tech and Wolf techs have not been able to resolve the issue or duplicate it in the stove they took back. Local gas company technician told us the clicking is an issue in automatic relighting burners and that Wolf is the best of the lot. He also explained that there is no longer an adjustment of air feed for the burners to tweak the air flow of the burner while on high, and the heat sensor isn't staying hot enough for the ignition to know that the burners are lit. After observing the pattern of the flame while on high I have been able to resolve the clicking by making sure that the slot leading to the outer ring is NOT located near the white heat sensor.
BTW, the polarity of our outlet is correct, as checked by my Electrical Engineer Electrician.

I just installed a Wolf gas cooktop and had the same problem in that all 4 burners would light just fine but the electronic igniters would not stop clicking on all four. What I found was that the electrical outlet that my gas cooktop was plugged into had the polarity reversed. I tested the outlet with a polarity testing module (you can get one at Home Depot and it checks polarity, grounding, GFI and is handy to have around, small and inexpensive). I plugged it in and the lights told me that the polarity was reversed. I reversed the wires in the outlet (exchanged the white and black wires) put the cover back on, plugged in the cook top and now it works like a champ! no more constant clicking. By the way, we had a cooktop before this one with electronic ignition and never had a problem, apparently it didn't care about the polarity.

Align the little slot up with the ignitor.. it should point directly
