SOURCE: GE Cooktop burner doesn't click or light.

Remove all the burner heads and lift the top. Sometimes easier said than done. How do you know it is the module? It could be a cracked insulator on the ignitor. To verify you can swap two of the connections on the module and if it lights then it is the module.

SOURCE: all 4 electrodes spark when only one is turned on

Electric gas igniters sometimes get stuck in one position causing a clicking sound. The clicking sound that you hear is the electric arc that is pulsing from the igniter conductor (wire) to ground (the gas burner). It receives power from the electrical outlet that the stove is plugged into.
Residue from food and sometimes cleaning products may be preventing the igniter from producing a spark (Arc) to the base of the burner. This is a common problem that occurs when the stove has been cleaned or food is allowed to build up. Make sure that the igniter and the burner base are clean and dry. This will help with proper operation. Oven cleaner and a small tooth brush may be used to accomplish this. Another problem with ignition may occur if you have too little (touching) or too much space between the igniter and the base of the burner; it will prevent the burner from igniting. You should only have a little more space than the thickness of a nickel between the burner base and the igniter. A good "blue" arc from the igniter to the burner base is optimal. If this doesn’t work, you may need to replace the electric igniter module. Good luck.

The ignitor keeps sparking and won't stop.Do not


First of all, the model number is under the cooktop bottom, and secondly, this can happen due to the burner switches got wet somehow. Best thing to do is to unplug unit for 6-12 hours, allow to dry, then re-plug unit back in, this should be enough time to dry out the burner switches.
Good luck

Cooktop Range Stove spark ignition does not work


You go to light the burner on your cooktop and the spark does not work.
What can the problem be? In most cases the problem will be because the
spark ignition module has gone bad. This spark module is a piece of electronics that produces a harmless electric spark at 2-4 pulses per second. Because the spark is a ultra low amperage spark, it is not dangerous.

A typical spark ignition will look similar to this.

This box is usually in a metal box located somewhere under the cooktop of your stove or in the back panel of your stove. The easiest way to find this is to simply follow the electric wires that go from the spark ignition box to the spark tip located at each of the burners.

The spark is activated by a switch that is located behind each of the burner control knobs. When one of the switches is turned on, all of the burners spark at the same time. The spark switch will look something like this.

To troubleshoot the spark ignition you need to determine if the system is wired in series or parallel. If the system is a series system and one is not sparking, then none will spark.
Almost every time if the spark is not working, it is because of a bad switch. To isolate which switch it is, turn each switch till you find the one that does not activate the module to spark. You can confirm this by pulling the two wires off of the switch and touching them together. If you get spark you know that the switch is bad. If no spark happens then either then a wire is bad or the module is bad. If none of the switches cause the module to spark then it is a good assumption that the spark module is bad.

By checking through these procedures you will be able to tell whether your problems are caused by a bad switch, a bad wire, or a bad spark ignition module. You will discover almost every time that the switch behind the burner is the part that needs to be replaced.

GE Profile nat gas cooktop, Model No JGP636BEV3BB won't ignite


If you can hear the clicking sound but are not getting a spark then there is probably a short in the ignition system. Check for any loose wires on the ignition system. Make sure all the wires are properly seated. Make sure the spark module is properly grounded. As far as testing the spark module it should be generating a spark of course. The problem is that the average voltage for the spark module is 15,000 VDC so actual testing of that voltage can be difficult. Is the spark erratic?(should spark evenly). An erratic spark timing is a sign of a bad spark module. Is the spark slow? Check the polarity of the electrical plug. If it is clicking evenly then it is probably arcing somewhere inside the cooktop and you just need to find out where. Also be aware that if you get water into the cooktop that can cause possible grounding of the spark module or ignition system.

I have prolonged igniter activation even when a burner is lit. I have searched the possible causes for this and none mention a bad flame sensor. I assume the sensor is built into the igniter. Is that...


Your problem is a stuck igniter switch or a bad spark module.
Each surface valve has its own igniter switch. Turn off the gas. Remove the panel covering the valves to access the switches.
With the gas OFF,turn on all surface switches. Move the dial past the LITE setting. The switches should still be making the sparking sound.
Remove one wire at a time from each surface switch.
When the sparking stops,that last switch with the wire removed will be the bad switch. The one that needs replacing.
If you do not find a bad switch the main spark control module will have to be replaced.
Part # 71003385 Igniter switch.
Part # 71002783 Spark module.
Occasionally a igniter switch becomes dislodged from the correct position and can be re-seated. Look at the position of all switches before you do any test. Make sure they are all seated.
