Question about Kitchen Ranges
Constant sparking (when the unit is off) means the spark module has failed or a switch may be stuck. In proper operation, the module senses a grounding condition (which is what burning gas does to the high voltage) at the burner and shuts the ignition system off.
If the unit is constantly sparking while the flame is on (which you didn't mention but is the most common complaint), you either have a miswire on the module or the ignitors and/or burner bases are too dirty to properly ground out (and therefore shut off) the circuit when lit. Also make sure the burner bases are tightly attached to the top. Replacement of the carbonized parts is the only solution - cleaning is a B.S. fix and not recommended as a final repair. You can try touching things up with a brass brush to hold a customer over in an emergency, but it seldom lasts very long.
