I also found after cleaning this happened to me and we unplugged the whole unit for a bit and it "reset". It stopped. I am sure you alreadytried this but thought i should at least mention it in case you haven't.

We have an older Thermador Gas Cooktop type range. It was working fine until the cleaning crew came in, then all the burner igniters were clicking when turning on a single burner. I solved the problem by cleaning off the igniters. I first of course unplugged the power. Then I took a small wire telcom pic tool to scrape the white and brown deposits from the sides of the igniters. You could probably use something else similiar to do the scraping. I noticed a shiny surface underneath. I then went ahead and scraped and brushed clean the mating surface where the spark travels. I then vacuumed up the mess. My burners all worked great after this. Hope this helps!

I agree with the above but if that does not solve the problem, consider this: The contact brushes inside each burner's ignitor switches can get contaminated with grease and stick together. Either dissassemble the switches and clean the contacts or replace the switch harness.

Hi If it older installation. Clean the goo and corrosion off the mating metal faces on the burner cap and burner base. use steel wool or a strong scrubber.. If it new installation the outlet you are using to plug it in is on a GFI circuit (ground fault interrupt) You cannot use a cooktop with automatic re-ignition. the ignitor will not ground and will keep sparking... hope this helps

Turn off gas. Remove the cartridge and remove back cover. Clean the ignition spark area. Re-install the cartridge without the back cover. Try to ignite the spark. If the spark works. The spark wire is too close to the back cover. Use an electrical tape to insulate the wire from the back cover. Other swap the two spark to see if you have a faulty spark.
