One of the switches mounted on the individual gas controls has malfunctioned.To find the broken one what I do is remove a wire from each switch one at the time till I isolate the malfunctioning one. When the ticking stops the switch can be replaced. This involves removing the knobs and cover to get to the switches.To temporarily stop it from happening is easy enough. yank out the bottom drawer and tucked under a shield is a small igniter box. Remove one of the power wires temporarily and tape it off. You can then light the burners with a match like granny used to do it back in the day. These switches mount on the individual gas valves and are all wired together so if one of them is bad the only way to tell is to do as I prescribed. Some models do not offer the individual switches but sell the entire harness. I would rather spend $5 than $100 and I bet you would too. Look on line for sources of Harper Wyman switces. These are the manufacturers of all these small switches you see on stoves. my Kitchenaid Stove top starter - 7f06c36.jpgThis is what a typical HarperWyman spark igniter looks like. Simply remove one of the input wires and the annoying sound till you can diagnose those pesky switches.

Hello! Yes, I did figure out the beeping...while on a long hold with the kitchenaid helpline, I took the "cookie sheets off of the top of the stove" and voila the beeping stopped. Simple, but who knew? I hope this helps someone else.

Stove top difficult to light

your gas jets are dirty.. clean them with a toothbrush (after everything is cooled down).. you can use the selfclean to clean the iron pieces that cover the burners..

be careful with kitchen aid self cleaning.. there is a known issue with the thermal fuses blowing quite easily on most self cleaning cycles..

good luck

Just happened to me. I unplugged the electric starter, wiped up the water, took off burners, etc., and placed a fan over the stove. After about 3 hours, I plugged in starter and the clicking is no longer.
