There is a potentiometer behind the gas knob. Sometimes if the knob is not coming back out fully after you push to light this may happen. also chect that the trailing contacts on the pot are not still engage after ligting has ocurred

No matter which knob I turn on, all 4 ignitors spark,


There is no fix. This is normal. All 4 ignitors will spark but the gas will only go to the burner where the gas is active.

Jenn-Air JDG8430 Ignitor won't stop sparking after burner ignites


Test the ignitor first, if the ignitor does not spark should be the ignitor itself.

Burner will not ignite but electroic spark s are working, sparks will not stop after burner is manualy lit


I have had this same issue with continuous sparking after a burner was lit.
Problem 1. Wet or dirty ignitors/burners. Solution: clean and/or dry (I assume this resolves electrical issues). This has usually solved the problem
Problem 2. Stuck or dirty control switch. Solution: remove knobs and spray electrical-cleaner into switches. AMAZING... no more clicking plus burners now burn hotter when set to HI. I assume this frees-up the movement of the switch to prevent it thinking you are pushing it ON... and thus asking for spark... plus greater range of switch and/or higher flame settings available once lit. A no-cost miracle! ( I used "PureTronics" brand Electrical Contact Cleaner spray can, 1 sec, 2X).

Gas ignitors continue to spark every 5 seconds in off position


try unplugging the unit over night, itspossible that by you cleaning the tops, the electrodes got wet, falsley sparkin, when the water dries out it should stop, and no not dangerous in any way, only annoying to listen to

GE ZGU650 EM1BG Gas Cooktop


On any range I've seen with electronic ignitors, the valves have a position that closes a contact to turn on the ignitor and manually moving the dial to the 'Hi' setting opens the contact again and the ignitor ceases to spark.
You don't mean the ignitors run even when the burners are off, do you?
I'm surprised to read that this has been happening for 'years,' the transformer for the ignitors must be really tough to withstand that and it doesn't sound like an electrode or transformer problem but rather a contact not opening as it should or you not advancing the control past the ignite point.

Ignitors Continue to Spark


Turn the knob back towards off about 1/8 of a turn and you will take it off lite and it should fix it.
