The stove was working fine, the wife said she did not have a boil over, and now if you turn on any burner all igniters fire. Do I need to change the igniter module, or is it something else. Thank you, David,

Electric gas igniters sometimes get stuck in one position causing a clicking sound. The clicking sound that you hear is the electric arc that is pulsing from the igniter conductor (wire) to ground (the gas burner). It receives power from the electrical outlet that the stove is plugged into.
Residue from food and sometimes cleaning products may be preventing the igniter from producing a spark (Arc) to the base of the burner. This is a common problem that occurs when the stove has been cleaned or food is allowed to build up. Make sure that the igniter and the burner base are clean and dry. This will help with proper operation. Oven cleaner and a small tooth brush may be used to accomplish this. Another problem with ignition may occur if you have too little (touching) or too much space between the igniter and the base of the burner; it will prevent the burner from igniting. You should only have a little more space than the thickness of a nickel between the burner base and the igniter. A good “blue” arc from the igniter to the burner base is optimal. If this doesn’t work, you may need to replace the electric igniter module. Good luck.
Hello, Is the igniter in the oven is working? (it should glow orange) If not, then you may have a broken or defective igniter. If it is working, but the burners don't light, then the appliance regulator on this model may have a small shutoff lever that turns off the gas to the oven. It may have been inadvertently closed. Follow where the gasline hooks up to the back of the stove. There will be a silver regulator about 3" x 4" size that regulates the gas pressure. On the outside of it, is a small lever. Flip it and see if that solves the problem. If you need more assistance, leave another comment and we'll trouble shoot further. Douglas
Very likely the spark module. All four are supposed to click when one is turned on, however they are supposed to stop when the burner ignites. Replace the module and test. Good Luck, Appliance Specialists
Take a hair dryer and dry the spark switches located on the end of each gas valve.
Sometimes when cleaning they get wet and do the clicking thing.
If that does not correct the problem you will have to replace the bad switch.
Try cleaning the starter with rubbing alcohol and toothbrush. There might be soap or boiled over residue on the starter. If that doesn't work, try using fine 150 grit sandpaper and gentle clean the starter with it. This problems drove me nuts too. Good luck!
They probably cleaned the stove and in replacing the parts of the burner switched the rings on top of the burner. This happened to me. While they look alike, the round rings, not the flat disks, have to be on the right burner in order for the electron spark to ignite the gas. Good luck.
Replace the multipoint gas re-igniter, it is a blue unit behind the knobs. This unit detects the flame and stops the clicking. Call Fisher and Paykel (owners of DCS) at 1 888 936-7872, they sell parts for DCS. The old inferior unit is blue and has a whte label. The newer unit has a yellow label.
I had the same problem, and finally took the rings and the covers off of the burners. I used an old toothbrush to clean everything really good, and then used a vacuum ( or you can just close your eyes and blow really hard ) around the burners. If there is a build up of junk or if a pot has ever boiled over, sometimes junk can get lodged in the little igniter and this prevents it from lighting.
