DCS ovens use electronic spark re-ignition.  Fisher Paykel makes these ovens and they have a good reputation.  Regardless, often times the igniter will continue to click.  Several things can cause the electrodes on a DCS oven to continue to click which it shouldn’t be sparking.  The most common issue being that the cook top was just cleaned.  When the electrodes on a DCS oven or cook top get wet it will cause these devices to short and become defective.  The spark module thinks the switch is calling for spark.

There are two things you can do to stop the clicking sound.  First, flip the breaker off for several hours, when the electrodes are dryed out they will stop clicking.  The second thing to do is to speed up the process by using a blow dryer on the electrode to speed up the drying process.

  1. Have had several days in between to eliminate the cause to be wet electrodes. Clicking sound came on after successful cooking many times. Have unplugged and manually ignited, but plugging in to use oven and clicking has resumed. How do we fix?

    • Hi, you need a volt meter to test the spark switches on the gas valve. Each needs to be tested. If they test good then the spark modal would most likely need to be replaced.

  2. I have a DCS range and the igniter wont stop clicking, I noticed that the simmer flame wont lit.
    I clean the whole burner and still won’t stop clicking . can you help ?
