Question about Dacor Preference SGM365SS Gas Cooktop
After my house was cleaned, I turned on a burner; the burner turned on, but the igniter for each of the three other burners started clicking. This happened whenever I turn on any burner. Then, at some point, all four of the igniters started clicking even when no burner was turned on. At the moment, my only solution has been to cut off the electricity to the range by tripping its circuit breaker.
I did have the same problem after the house keeping people done with cleaning. They used window/surface cleaner. First I asked them not to clean the ignitor with any cleaner. Here is what I did to solve the problem
I took scotch scour pad (one that you use for washing dishes), In dry state I polished ignitor switch. It is abrading the residuals and deposits on the top and polishing it. Don't use any thing more abrasive than that. MAGIC - I don't have any more problem.

I have one of these ranges too. This happens to all of them. EXTREMELY annoying. The problem is probably that cleaning fluid/water/materials break the contact between the metal parts. Solution: Take a wire brush and clean the igniter tip. Also brush the removable ring and the flat burner top, as well as the ring below these (the one coming out of the stove top.) You may have to do this several times -- brush every surface near the igniter tip. Then, turn on the burner and let it burn for 10 minutes or so. Sometimes the burner will not light even though the igniter is clicking. Light it with a match and let it burn 10 minutes.

I had clicking after the burners were burning.
Problem was that I'd removed the inner ring during cleaning and did not
put it back properly. There are little nubs that must be lined up
properly. If you don't, ALL the burners can start to act wonky when you
try to ignite them. Problem solved.
