Kenmore elite dual fuel range top ignitors clicking like lite mode is on, but it's not.
I had to turn the breaker off to get the ignitors to stop sparking.
All burners on my Kenmore Elite starting clicking by themselves this afternoon. They all still ignite just fine, and there seems to be no other problems with the unit. But the breaker is off as the burners keep trying to light themselves now.

No need to worry, this is a common problem after cleaning. Moisture gets into the switches that are behind the knobs. When they dry out they will be fine again. I would recommend unplugging the power cord or turning the breaker off while you are not using the range tonight. If you need to use it that is fine and it is safe, just annoying to hear.
Check connector block where electric is brought into stove for loose or burnt wires. Check Breaker in house power box. Push the breaker firmly to off and then return to On position. Read owner's manual to see if ignitor circuit has a fuse and check said fuse.
Will have to ask some basic questions first. How old is the stove? What is the entire model # from the sticker on the unit? Is this LP or natural gas? Also, make sure that the orifices in the center of the burners are clean (can use a safety pin or paper clip to poke them a few times to clean). Make sure that the black caps are on top of the burners and seated properly or they will not lite. Let me know what you find.
