Random Clicking

In reply to GE Gas Range Ignition Randomly Sparks by Alex on October 10th, 2002 05:54 PM [Go to top of thread]

The burners sparking on a gas range/cooktop when still in the off position could be caused by moisture (like from a recent cleaning or spillage) in the ignition switches mounted on the burner valve shafts. This case may be able to be corrected by using a hair dryer to dry them out but if moisture remains in them, they (the effected switches) may need to be replaced.

It could also be caused by a defective spark module (a fairly common cause) or improper grounding or polarity of the wall outlet the range is plugged into. We have seen stoves operate Ok for ages on such an outlet only to develop symptoms years later.
