Question and Answers

Q:

Kenmore gas range Model 790-78832601

A:

Thank you for your question on the gas range igniter clicking continuously.

In order for the burner to light you would have to turn the valve on to have gas to the burner.

If you have been cleaning the range or have had a boil over it may have gotten moisture into the igniter switch behind the valve knob on the range.

If this is the reason it sound dry out in a couple of days and be fine.

If it is all the time and it has not been caused by moisture then the switch harness will need to be replaced.

If you decide to replace the igniter switches they come as a complete set for all the surface burners.

The part number is: 316219009.

Igniter switch harness .

Since this is a gas range I would suggest that you have a service technician perform the repair of the igniter switches.

Please let me know what you find and we can continue to troubleshoot with that information.

Thank you for the update on the burner switches clicking all the time. It should only take a few days to dry out. It could be that the contacts inside the switch are stuck together and you will need to replace the switch string. The switches are behind the burner knob and slide over the burner knob shaft so when you turn the burner on the switch is turned on too. Sam A.
