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.

My Jenn Air Electric stove is making a clicking noise. When I put my hand on one of the cook top knobs I can actually feel a vibration when the click occurs. What is this?


Gas stove? LP? It is probably the electric spark ignitor. Many times when you clean the stove top water from the sponge gets below. The water droplets (align mysteriously) make the connection between the wires, and the stove thinks it's supposed to be igniting. When the water evaporates, the switch will work fine again & the clicking should only occur when igniting & then backed off.

This happened to me once before.

All cook top burners spark when any is turned on


OK, the best action is to call for service, if the unit was just installed, and purchased. This unit should be covered at this time, by the manufactures warranty, or store 30 day warranty. This repair should be free. The culprit will be a faulty spark ignition switch, and module. Testing is required. Once this switch, or(module), is replaced, the unit will operate correctly.

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.
