Ignitors won't stop sparking

My wife was cleaning the stove and and the ignitors keep on going off (sparking and making clicking noise). When I turn the knobs I can still get each burner to light. The best solution I could find was from fixitnow.com which suggested: "Do the burners spark continuously no matter which burner is turned on? If so, replace the spark module." I may try that if I can find one, otherwise can you think of anything else? Thanks

    We ended up unplugging the stove and waiting a day or two while everything dried out and now it is working fine again.

    I have the same problem unless I turn on the grill.  The problem actually stopped for a day or so after a pretty good cleaning.  As a temporary remedy we turn off at the circuit breaker while it's not being used.
    I'm getting nervous after reading a website called" Why Thermadors ****". Post after post of disheartening recurring problems , miserable customer service, and thousands of wasted dollars make me wonder if this is just the beginning.

If your ignitors on the burners continue to click after cleaning it is because they are wet. The spark module is not sensing the flame is on therefore still telling it to click. Just leave all burners on high for 20 minutes until they dry out and stop clicking. The clicking is not dangerous. Just annoying. If they continue to click you may have some grease residue or cleaning residue on the ignitors. Take a piece of sandpaper, nail filer and file the tips of the ignitors where it has metal above the porcelain white part. Good luck.

Hi abbilou_78,

I believe your ignition switches have come in to contact with either water or moisture.

If it does not solve your problem, I'd suggest replacing the ignition switches.

Electronic ignitors won't stop clicking


Pull the burner caps, etc off the stove and completely dry the area ..Be sure to inspect each ignitor contact for cleanliness as well. If the ignitors have soapy buildup or water, around them, they can act like this.
You should be able to pull the burner caps and flame diffusers off and clean with a paper towel, and if needed, a light scouring sponge. Be careful not to scratch the surfaces, but scour the top of the ignitors carefully if you need to clean them.

If they ignitors worked properly before you aunt cleaned them, the problem could be with the way they were cleaned and what they were cleaned with. Please tell me how she cleaned them and with what. Also, had she cleaned them before without incurring any problems, or was this the first time she had cleaned them?
