Tip & How-To about Cooktops
I had this problem and the solution is quite simple. Remove the control knobs and shoot a good squirt of WD-40 directly down the center of the exposed control shaft. The WD-40 will penetrate the switch located at the base of the shaft and displace the water from inside the switch, which is causing the intermittant operation or clicking of the ignition. I actually disassembled my cook top to learn this fix, but don't take yours apart it's waaay too much trouble.
