Best Answer

Most pilot-less stoves with electronic ignitions have lighting positions on the knobs. The click does not stop automatically when the flame ignites. The user must continue to turn the knob to a cooking flame-height position to stop the clicking.

Why does your stove electric igniter keep ticking even when the stove is off?

Did you just clean the stove, or did something overflow? Water on the little electric igniter can cause it to repeatedly fire. When this happens, dry off ALL of the igniters and the area around them. It may take a while for the last dampness to evaporate, so don't expect instant results.

Fuel injectors can stick and sound like lifters but not as loud. Lifters of course. The speed of the ticking would help, one or two cylindars or all of them? A spark jumping, but there should be some loss of performance.

Can you burn wood in a coal burning stove?

Yes. The reverse is not always true (no coal in a wood stove) If you burn wood in a coal burning stove, it is not advisable to burn coal in that same stove. The problem is that the wood puts creosote into the chimney, which has to be cleaned out. When you switch back to coal, the gas from the coal may be hot enough to ignite the creosote, even if the coating is relatively light, causing a flue fire.
