None-stop oven igniter


just hooked up a older model stove by "True-Test" ? (never heard of this brand).

Top burners all function normally, the oven burner ignites but the igniter continues its clicking the entire time the oven is in use. The previous owner says "its always done that and it is too costly to fix". I haven't checked under the hood yet, but wouldn't this be a simple flame sensor problem?
Maybe a $25 item?

Could be a flame sensor. Could also be a damaged ground connection. I would ensure the flame sensor is clean and that all grounding connections are proper. Failing that. The ignition module may be required.

Is a separate equipment ground required? Currently there is only the ground from the electrical outlet.

Shouldnt require seperate grounding. On some ovens the burners/ignition controls are grounded. I would ensure that those are secured as well as any equipment grounds inside the unit.

None-stop oven igniter


I have a Kenmore gas counter-top stove and it has always had an intermittent problem with the igniters. Sometimes - especially if there is the slightest breeze while the stove is on - the igniters on all burners click constantly.
I have found that they will also click constantly if any of them is wet.

I had always thought the only time power should be applied to the igniter circuit is when you push the knob in to light, but that is not the case with my stove.

If you can find the wiring diagram (usually located under a panel that doesn't get hot), it should be a help.
