I was just cleaning my cooktop and now I'm getting a constant ticking noise. I turned all burners on, left them on a short time, turned them off and it's still making the fast ticking noise. Is...

what that clicking is , is the ignitor trying to light the burner, its electronic, and if it continues it will eventually burn out, more than likely what happened is that moisture from cleaning got into the knob and control for that specific burner, and needs to dry out before it burns out, , you can try turning that one burner on and off a few times o see if that shuts it down, if it doesn't,, unplug the unit, and wait until it dries out on its own

We have a ge cooktop (gas). even though the knobs are turned off , we can hear "tick tick" noise from one of the burners.

Unplug your cooktop for 24hrs and retest. Sometimes moisture gets into the switches under the knobs and can cause a short. If this continues after you let the unit dry out then your will need the replace the switches/or switch harness.
Hope that was helpful please rate me a "4" if that helped.

You have to verify if you are getting 24v to the gas valve. If you are and the burners wont lite then replace the gas valve. They sell em at Sunberg (located thru out the use). If you dont have 24v then check the transformer. If you do have 24v at the transformer, take two wire from the transfomer 24v and put them directly to the gas valve to see if it will light. let me know what happened.

Gas burners are ticking

The ticking sound you hear is the electronic ignition which is located by each burner. When you turn a burner on the electronic ignition creates a spark which ignites the gas. Once the burner is ignited. turn the knob a bit further and the ticking will stop.

There must be a problem in one of the switches which is behind one of the knobs. Will have to check each switch with a meter.
