Dawnie, under each burner control there is a valve and a switch. One of your switches has either become wet or shorted out. This is why it's clicking. Sometimes grease gets in them and causes this problem. The part number for the switch is 7403p367-60. You can look it up on the net to see what Im talking about. Not a hard fix. back.

Pilot keeps engaging, all 4 burners are clicking.

Usually, constant clicking is caused by water getting down under the glass or metal cooktop. Just unplug the unit and let it dry for a day or two.

No spark to ignite gas on cooktop

Shut off the stove. Then lift up the range top and you will see pilot lights. Remove the cover on the pilot lights. They could be blown out, but usually they are just dirty. Take a pin and poke it through the hole, then carefully scrub the tubes with a brush that go from the range to the pilot light. When your done with that....use a long match and light the pilot light, make sure no gas is on when you do this. No flames will come out, but it doesn't hurt to be extra careful.

This just happened to me so good timing!

Hope this helps

All 4 burners keep firing although the knobs are in the "off" position

It actually stopped doing it all by itself while we were waiting for a solution.
