Electronic ignition not working

Stove was working fine and then the burners just won't light when I turn it on. There's no clicking any more but I still smell gas. I can light the burners manually although when I turn to LOW or WARM they tend to go out. I can't find replacement ignition switches for my Sterling cooktop Model No. GCT360, manufactured in 1988. The company in UK does not respond to my inquiry, while the Sterling Service Center in Sharon, Massachusetts has apparently gone out of business.

SOURCE: cooktop's electronic igniter started clicking all by itself

If any of the 5 burner switches are sending a signal to the spark module to light a burner, most gas cooktops have a wire from each burner control to the spark module to send a spark to all burners. Shut the power off, pull the wires off from each control to the spark module control and reapply power . Test each one at a time to determine which is the culprit. Could be more than one but usually only one.

SOURCE: igniters are not working right

when you turn any burner control to lite all ignitors should click this is normal industry wide. the ignitors are controlled by switches that are placed over the valve shafts they are wired up together so thats why they all click when you only operate one valve don't worry about it. the ignitor stays on untill you back the valve off a tad this is also normal.

SOURCE: Our Dacor gas cooktop igniter won't click.

Go to RepairClinic.com and check on how much a new igniter is. Is there two or 4 igniters on your model (lift the top of the range up and it is the little silver piece sticking out with a white base around it), If its 2 is the other side working? Make sure there is no food deposits around where the gas and the spark meet.

Amana counter top gas stove when plugged in start making clicking noise and you can smell gas .


on most, your push down and turn to hi to open gas valve and turn on piezio to light burner. it sounds like you have a knob already turned on . the control under the knob may need replacing. kinda an easy replacement if you get new part. check out repairclinic.com for video(maybe) but for parts for sure. be careful. gas is explosive.

When I turn any burner on, the ignitors work fine but it takes a very long time for the burners to ignite. Problem is worse the longer the top has been turned off. Once gas gets to the ignitor, it lights...


It seems like one of your burners is clogged. You made need to use some oen cleaner and a small toothbrush to clean the burner. If the problem occurs with all the burners, then you have a blockage in the gas supply line. you willm have to take it apart at the stove and clear it out. Check the main gas connection and at the burner(s) to spot the debris clogging. Make sure to shut your gas valve off behind the stove. Good luck... hope this helps.

Miele KM 3474 stove top lights but turns off after 30 seconds


Does the burner attempt to re-ignite after it goes out? If so, it's probably the therocouple. If not, it could be the burner valve. Be sure the caps and rings are correctly seated on the burners and be sure to firmly press the burner knob down to start the flame.

Thermador Gas Range - Griddle ignition will not spark


I have a Thermador Gas Range PG364GDBS - Oven, 4 burners, and center griddle. All are gas. The four burners and gas oven work fine. The griddle just stopped working, no spark. Turning on the griddle control, the gas valve opens(hear it), gas flows (smell it), but the ignitor will not spark (no loud or faint spark that I can hear). I got a replacement ignition device (mount at the burner) thinking it might be the problem, but still no spark. I checked the AC voltage at the terminal and measured 39 VAC between the terminal and ground. Not sure if that is the correct voltage. Any insights or advice would be great.

Viking stove ignitor


the continues to click problem, for e it was only when my smaller burner was lit. theo others were ok. When I took the burner apart it was very dirty. I cleaned it up (a wire brush in my drill press) and it works fine now. I think it was just bad electrical conduction.
