The problem that you're describing is commonly associated with the spark modulator. It usually occurs after a spill or when the ignitor electrodes have remained wet after a cleaning. If after a day or two it continues to spark intermittently on its own, then the only recourse would be to replace the module. Hope this helps,,,, Bill

I have a Jenn Air cooktop that had the same problem. Initially it was an intermittent problem when burners were in use. Eventually the igniters would start clicking without anyone attempting to use the cooktop. Constant clicking....drives you nuts! I tried every solution posted on this and other forums...nothing solved the problem.
Someone suggested the POLARITY in the electric circuit might be reversed. An electrician tested the circuits...and in fact that was the cause of the problem!!!
The unit had worked for years with no issues, then suddenly it reacted to the improper wiring.
Finally....I live with a peaceful kitchen again!!

Trust the Electrician. 99.9% of the time, the only requirement for working at a retail store is to know absolutely NOTHING of the product they sell.

Ignitor would not turn off on front left burner

Same problem with the ignitors on the burners myself.  But only when i turn on the left side burners do they continually spark.  Any one know what ignition module on this?  How does it prove flame?  To ground?  Might I have a bad ground causing it to not rectify the flame?
