    Common range repair parts you may need

    Replacing one of these range parts may fix your problem.

    Electronic Control Board Replacement

    An inoperative electronic control board in a range can lead to multiple failures, including power loss or heating irregularities in the oven or surface element, or the oven remaining on. This is because the board acts as the central hub of the range, managing essential functions such as temperature regulation, fan operation, and timer settings. If the electronic control board malfunctions, it disrupts communication among various components. A malfunctioning board may also generate unusual sounds like chattering or clicking, accompanied by a burning odor. Due to its potential impact on multiple components, it's recommended to have a Sears Home Services professional perform diagnostic tests on the board to determine if replacement is necessary.

    Igniter Replacement

    A broken range igniter can hinder a burner from igniting, leading to no heat from the bake or broil burner in the oven, or from a surface burner. Lighting the burner may become challenging, requiring multiple attempts for ignition. You may hear a clicking sound from the igniter without the gas successfully igniting, indicating a malfunction. In some instances, the igniter may fail to produce any visible spark. Igniter failure can result in delayed ignition, noticeable as a delay between turning the knob and the burner lighting.

    Control Panel Replacement

    When a range control panel fails, it might not show anything or react to your commands, making it unusable. This means you can't adjust cooking temperatures, switch between modes, or use features such as timers or lights. Sometimes, a faulty control panel might show error codes or lights that flicker. It might also produce odd sounds like clicking or chattering. When the control panel doesn't work, it disrupts communication with other components, impacting the overall performance of the range.

    What to expect when you experience a range clicking issue

    What is the solution to the clicking problem?

    Fixing most clicking problems usually involves replacing the electronic control board, igniter or control panel. However, there are many potential causes, so a thorough diagnosis is crucial to solving the problem.

    Things to consider with a range clicking diagnosis

    Effectively diagnosing malfunctions in modern appliances necessitates a comprehensive understanding and specialized training. Addressing range issues without employing precise diagnostic techniques may lead to ineffective repairs and unnecessary part replacements. With significant advancements in appliance technology over the past decade, contemporary models now feature intricate electronic components that pose considerable challenges for troubleshooting. Consequently, do-it-yourself repairs on modern appliances have become increasingly intricate.
