Question about Thermador Cooktops
Model PC366BS/01 Frist, there was no gas coming from the two left burners. The other 4 burners were fine. Then, a few days after I first noticed this, the two left burners spontaneously started clicking and sparking very loudly. Much louder than the normal ignition click. I happened to be home, and ran into the kitchen. I tried turning one of the knobs for the left burners, and gas came out and the burner lit. But the out of control clicking and sparking was still happening. I unplugged the unit and the sparking stopped. Plugged it back in, and now everything is working perfectly. So first, no gas at left burners. Then, the weird loud clicking episode, when no one touched the stove. Then a power cycle and everthing is working. I am concerned that this is going to happen again. Any ideas?

SOURCE: Some Burners Will Not Ignite
probably a worn wire to the electrode or a cracked ignitor. you are faced with taking off the hobtop and looking - no easy solution. you should not do this unless you are confident and don't interupt the gas path

I have a viking gas cooktop. The ignitor on one of my front burners wouldn't stop clicking even after the flame ignited. I swapped that ignitor with the ignitor from a back burner, expecting that the problem was with the ignitor and that the back burner would start to click incessantly, but at least I'd have my favorite front burner for use. Instead, the front burner was then only clicking 50% of the time and the back burner was fine, suggesting the problem was related to the burner not the ignitor. I pulled the front ignitor a bit away from the burner and now it is working normally. Hope this helps.

the sparking is one of the switches under the knobs shorted you may be able to open the top and take a switch off 1 at a time and you can figure out what one is shorted.or you can just change all of them.
to stop this you may be able to just unplug the cooktop from under the top.if you unplug the cooktop you should be able to light the burners with a match.
