Well wife starts yelling at me this morning and I race into the kitchn and the igniters on my duel fuel range are all going off.  ALL the knobs are in the off position and nobody has been near the range since the evening before.

 

Had to cut the electricity to shut them off.  I read some other things online about dirt or moisture causing this, but the fact they just started clicking all by themselves makes me think this might be a good old "black box" problem where perhaps I need to simply replace a control module or some other "brain" electrical component.  The range has worked flawlessly for years up until it became inhabited by a ghost this AM.  Of course I am about to start putting in hardwoods, and this is just a pain...

 

I did fry up a bunch of turkey burgers on a griddle this weekend and have not cleaned the range top. So I do not think that moisture is the issue but perhaps the residual grease is part of the cause?  What is the best way to clean the stove top?????

 

Thanks in advance!

The Burner Switches send 120v to the Spark Ignitor Module

Uh I am a little confused but greatly appreciate the schematic diagram.  I am a so so electrician, and are you indicating that I need to replace the Spark Module?  

 

OR that there is some sort of malfunction with one or more of the top valve switches indicating the valve is open causing the spark module to fire?

 

ANy suggestions on troubleshooting appreciated

check for 120v at the Spark Module (Line & Neutral)...

may be a bad Switch on the Burner Valv e Shaft

so tried to remove range top but burner covers were screwed on tight and I didn't have time to use PB blaster to break them loose.  So started to disassemble back of unit and then decided to just wait until another day and to just use range manually with a lighter to start burner.... and Abra Cadabra the darn thing seems to be working again.  I am assuming that perhaps my kids spilled something around one of the burner  valve knobs and that caused the false "on" reading that caused the igniters to fire?

 

So we will see what happens... beside me losing 4 hours today.

 

what is THE best way to clean the top of the stove?  While I have all the knobs and all off I figured a good cleaning would no hurt.
