An inspired combination of smart German engineering and sleek European style sets Bosch cooktops apart from other brands. Bosch gas and electric cooktops are designed to provide users with years of cooking satisfaction. However, a common issue with Bosch gas cooktops is clicking spark igniters. When a spark igniter burner switch becomes stuck, it produces a ticking or clicking sound. Here are three simple troubleshooting tips for addressing spark igniter clicking.
When you use water to clean your cooktop, it can sometimes short out the switches, causing a clicking sound. Begin cooktop troubleshooting by removing the range top and top burner parts until the wires connected to the igniter module are exposed. Perform a visual inspection to see if any wires are shorted out. If so, allow the switches to dry out before using the cooktop again. If the clicking persists, the burner switch needs to be replaced.
Check to see if the igniter switch sparks when you turn the burner control knob to Lite. If it fails to spark, replace the cooktop spark igniter switch with a new one from Sears PartsDirect's selection of cooktop parts. This is also the appropriate course of action if the igniters spark constantly, even when turned off.
The gas burner ignition circuit houses the spark module. If the igniter switch doesn't spark when turned to the Lite position, it's possible that its electrodes aren't receiving adequate voltage from the spark module. If this is the case, shop Bosch repair parts at Sears PartsDirect to find a replacement spark module.
