Re: Why are all of my ignoiters are clicking in the off...
Spark module is bad or a switch is stuck closed. You can check this by removing a wire from each switch to see if it stops. Need to take c/t apart. I cannot see your reply due to some tech issue w/ the site, so it may be a day or so before I can reply again. Please leave feedback for me if appropriate. Thanks

I understand that your Frigidaire gas cooktop, model# FGC30S4ASA, is clicking even when the knobs are in the off position. I suggest resetting your appliance, by either unplugging it or shutting the power off at your home's circuit breaker, for 3-5 minutes. Sometimes there can be a miscommunication between the different boards inside your appliance. Restore power and listen for the clicking with the burner knobs in the off position. I ask that you please follow up with a comment on the post, at your convenience, to advise if further troubleshooting is needed or if your appliances status has changed successfully. Hope this is helpful.
sounds like it was turned a little past the stop point. Pull two knobs off and examine the back side that slides onto the shaft. Switch them and try again. If the problem is on the same burner, the shaft may be turned past its normal stop position. You can try turning it until it stops in the opposite direction and force it just a tiny bit more. That was how I fixed mine.
When you turn the burner knob on does the igniter click and turn off on it's own when the flame ignites? If it does then it has flame rectification. That means it can sense when the flame is on. Or does it click when the knob is in the light position and not stop until you move the burner knob? Then this is standard ignition. If it is standard ignition it sounds like it is the igniter switch built into the burner knob might be defective. Are you able to turn on any burner knob and when they are in the igniter position do all the electrodes spark or just the burner that you are turning on? If they all come on then they are wired in a series. If they are wired in a series do you get a spark at the electrode of the problem igniter? If so you can turn on one of the other burners to ignition position then while it is clicking turn on the problem burner to light it. If the cooktop uses flame rectification then there may be a problem with the switch built into the burner knob or the flame rectification sensor for that burner might be bad.

It is possible that once the unit dries out the clicking will stop. If it doesn't, you will need to call someone to have the problem addressed. You will need a spark module and or an ignition switch(s).
Sounds like the switch electric sending unit needs to be Ither cleaned and dry good or replced. It's not hard at all, They are located under the knob switches, you will have to remove the knobs and the top cover, they look like a small square box wit a hole in the middle with two wires on the sides, just unplug the wires and lift the box off the switch rod. cleane them and dry them good and put them back.......that should do it.....Good Luck

some JA models i have seen the the spark switces are poorly constructed or improper installed from the factory and beging to become a probelm after a year or so of use. this is not a gas pressure issue it just plain ole' bad spark switches
