Whilst cleaning the item the ring ignitors started to spark and eventually tripped the electricity which cut off. All rings checked and gas controllers checked to ensure they hadn't stuck down. When electricity put back on they continue to spark. Any suggestions, we are at a loss and need it sorting asap as unale to use oven as running off same power point.

Re: ignitors on all 5 rings wont stop sparking
You have a short in the ignition switches. these are located at the base of every stem under the knobs. In order to get to them you have to remove the entire cooktop, which entails removing all of the burners. The switches are run in parallel on a single harness.

Spark module part no 318 at parts diagram it may be wet and by using a hair dryer or leave it unplug for some days can dry out and stop. If not then the electric contacts are stuck and need a new spark module
Brand new means you have a warranty, get the service agent to check.
I have found that you can easily place the wrong burner cap on the incorrect burner ring(the smaller burner caps).
Could also be dirt or water in burner ring or the burner jet(use needle to clear jet).
Are sparks coming from all ignitors? You might have damaged the spark plug.
Hi, How long ago did you get the ignitors wet? Most cases, unplug the range for a few hours giving it time to dry out. Maybe set a fan near the range top to help dry it. This helps MOST of the time. please let me know if it helps or if I can assist you further.
try unplugging the unit over night, itspossible that by you cleaning the tops, the electrodes got wet, falsley sparkin, when the water dries out it should stop, and no not dangerous in any way, only annoying to listen to
the spacing between the ignitor and the plat is less the minimum. that will cause the ignitor to igniteprematurely. use a small screw driver or a nail filler clean out the space between the ignotor and the plat.
The spark gap needs to have flow of gas across it for ignition to occur. The gas outlet holes at the point where the igniter sparks may be blocked, clean and inspect these for any blockages. Also check that the igniter spike is in the correct place. Careful evaluation of the position of the igniter in reference to the gas ring on the other rings may help you here. Good luck
Well, it happened again. I'd replaced the spark module last time around, due to spillage getting into/onto that control unit. This time around, I had one burner that just kept sparking after it was lit. Cleaning the sparking post (emitter) didn't solve the problem, but I realized that there might be contamination elsewhere in the connect. I pulled the brass rings (nuts, really) and was able to lift the the top off. I carefully removed the individual sparking wires from each burner, and examined each assembly. After cleaning some debris off the male connector for that bad burner's spark assy, and reassembling the cooktop, it worked!
Things learned: The top can lift off without having to worry about dropping the entire unit. (This probably varies by model). The emitters _and_their_connectors_ are sensitive to contaminants. This was an EASY fix! Thanks for the helpful instructions everyone!
