Ensure safety first: always prioritize safety when working with gas appliances. If you smell gas or suspect a gas leak, immediately turn off the gas supply and contact your gas utility company or emergency services.
Is your stove clicking? We have quick tips to make it stop!
First, start by turning OFF your stoves’ burners and make sure there are no open flames or gas leaks.
1. A dirty burner or igniter can cause clicking issues. Try to clean the burner and igniter to see if that fixes it:
Step 1: Remove any food debris, grease, or residue from the burner heads and igniter. We like making a baking soda paste (1:1 baking soda:water) instead of cleaners with bleach or ammonia.
Step 2: Use a soft brush, scrub pad or a can of compressed air to clean the area around the igniter and burner.
Take note: Pilot holes should be kept clear of moisture, so take care when cleaning the igniters.
2. If cleaning it doesn’t do the trick, verify proper alignment:
Ensure that the burner cap and head are correctly aligned. If they are misaligned, it can prevent the gas from flowing properly, causing clicking. Here’s how to check the alignment.
3. Now your stove is sparkling clean, and your burner cap and head are aligned, but your stove is still clicking? Try resetting your stove:
In some cases, turning off the stove and unplugging it for a few minutes can reset the electronic ignition system. Plug it back in and turn it on to see if the clicking has stopped.
If the clicking issue persists after trying the above steps, it’s a good time to contact a pro. Remember that gas appliances can be dangerous if not properly maintained or repaired, so it’s essential to take appropriate precautions and seek professional help if necessary.
