One of the switches that control the ignitor is stuck; you might remove the knobs to see if the switch actuators are visible without removing other panels and check to see if they can be operated by annoying them with an insulated probe such as a chopstick or wooden skewer. Ours are controlled by a cam that is part of the knob itself that passes an extension of the switch. The extension is visible with the knob removed. 

Good thing you pulled the plug since the high voltage transformer that supplies the spark is definitely not designed for prolonged operation.

The igniter switch(s) has most likely failed shorted. Fairly common with gas ranges with spark ignition.

If the front left also does not light normally, my best guess would be that the wires for the front left and right rear are crossed and the insulation may have fried. Besides that possibility, I have no clue.

Gas range igniters won't shut off


The problem that you're describing is commonly associated with the spark modulator. It usually occurs after a spill or when the ignitor electrodes have remained wet after a cleaning. If after a day or two it continues to spark intermittently on its own, then the only recourse would be to replace the module. Hope this helps,,,, Bill

Gas cook top- keeps sparking with gas knob in off position.


try unplugging unit from electrical suppl, leave unplug for the overnight, its possible that the electrode has gotten wet from watrer or grease and will dry out and stop sparking. give it a try before setting a service call.

Ignitor would not turn off on front left burner


Same problem with the ignitors on the burners myself.  But only when i turn on the left side burners do they continually spark.  Any one know what ignition module on this?  How does it prove flame?  To ground?  Might I have a bad ground causing it to not rectify the flame?

Igniters won't stop poppong


Sing, sounds like you got one of your burner valve switches wet and it's grounding out. Try taking a hair dryer, pull of the burner knobs and going lightly over the control valves. The switches are mounted to these valves. It just may need to be dried out. If this doesn't work, one of the switches shorted out. Catriver..post back.
