No matter how you look at it, gas stoves are a cut above conventional, electric stovetops.
For instance, not only are they more cost-effective, but their cooking performance is simply unmatched with their ability to heat up and cool down much quicker than an electric burner. In fact, gas stoves are often the pride and joy of professional and home chefs alike.
However, whenever using a gas stove, you’ll need to learn how these stovetops work, which will prevent easily avoidable issues from arising later on down the road. Out of the many issues we see with gas stoves, one of the most common is the incessant clicking sound that sometimes happens when you turn on one of your burners.
What’s worse is that the clicking sound doesn’t even stop after the burner is lit or in some cases, the burner doesn’t light at all.It’s annoying for anyone to deal with, but the good news is that it’s not a difficult issue to resolve, and typically means that you have a faulty ignitor. But before you go and call an appliance service professional, there are a few things you can do to try and fix it yourself.
The first thing to do is to clean the gas burner. The more you use it, the more potential there is for messes to be made. And when messes do happen, you want to clean your burners thoroughly to remove any food debris that might be sticking to the burner cap. You’ll also want to pay close attention to any food debris that might be building up around the ignitor and control knobs since food debris in those areas could be causing your clicking sound.
To do this properly, use a metal pin or paperclip to remove any debris from the holes in the cap. Avoid using a toothpick in this situation since pieces could break off and get lodged inside, which will only make the problem worse.
After you are done cleaning it, though, you’ll want to ensure the burners are dried properly as well. In fact, in some cases, if your ignitor is damp or wet, or this is simply too much moisture in the area, this can also cause the clicking sound that you’re hearing. To dry everything, remove the burner caps and let it air out. Or, you can speed this up by wiping the top of your range with a dry towel or cloth. You could also turn the oven to 350 degrees for about 20 or 30 minutes to help dry out the burners from below.
Another possibility for why your ignitor isn’t working is to do with the flow of electricity. However, when it comes to electricity, it’s advised that you call a professional repair service to help you out.
Still, in this case, you might be able to reset your gas range by going to your circuit breaker and then shutting off the electricity to the stove for about a minute. Then, flip the breaker back on and check to see if your range is still making noise.
If you’re still having trouble with your burners, however, we suggest calling a professional to handle the task for you.

For instance, one of the most common issues we see, especially with older appliances, is that the appliance may have undergone a sudden surge of power, which caused your kitchen’s main electrical breaker to trip.
Sometimes, this will happen during a storm or a power outage; however, it can also happen if your stove or oven has an electrical short. If you have a short, you’ll continue to trip the breaker every time that you turn your appliance on.
Therefore, if you suspect that your appliance has a short, don’t hesitate to contact a trained appliance repair technician, who will make sure that any repairs applicable will be covered under your warranty.
On older oven or stove models, the control knobs are one component that gets a lot of use. This means that they’re prone to wearing out or having the numbers/setting rubbed off. Replacing your stove’s control knobs is as simple as gently twisting and pulling them off, then sliding the new ones on.
However, you must make sure to purchase the correct replacement knobs, or else they might not fit.

If you have a gas stovetop, and you’re having trouble getting your burner to ignite, it’s not uncommon for the burner cap to have been knocked out of place during cleaning.
When this happens, it’ll prevent an adequate gas flow to the burner, which might cause an uneven flame or prevent the burner from igniting entirely.
Either way, after cleaning, always make sure to reposition your burner caps properly so that you won’t run into these minor pesky problems while putting together your holiday feast!
