Question about KitchenAid KGST307 Gas Kitchen Range
I have a Kichenaid (Whirlpool) thermal-convection freestanding gas range model KGST307GBS0. The spark igniters on the surface burners just started sparking continuously, regardless of whether the burners are turned on or not. I can light none, one, all, or any combination of the burners but the igniters keep firing. I thought that perhaps something had gotten wet during cleaning and left all four burners on for about 10 minutes but to no avail; the igniters kept sparking. We also tried baking something for about 90 minutes or so but the igniters just continued to fire (fortunately, I was in another room or I think I might have gone bonkers). I turned of the circuit breaker for several hours to stop the incessant clicking but it just started up again once power was restored. I am assuming the igniter module (found in the parts list of the chasis diagram) is bad but hesitate to spend $100+ if there is another option. Any ides???
Had The same problem. I removed the top of the control panel to find out that one of the ignitor switches had turned when I replaced the four large plasic nuts on the control panel. Make sure the switches (block) are aligned, and kept aligned, when re-installing the top of the control panel. Startwreck.

Guy, I would suspect one of the valve switches is shorting. Probably got wet and is grounding. Before you go after the spark module check these first. Each control valve has a switch. I usually find these to be the culprit with constant spark. Catriver.
