If you have recently cleaned it, you may have gotten moisture behind the knobs and into the spark switches. Be very careful not to let moisture get behind knobs. Very dangerous. If this is the case, they may dry out themselves and stop sparking. If not you may need to replace a spark switch behind knob.

I had the same problem of ignition clicking after the stove top had been cleaned. Took the knobs off the ignition switches, used a hair dryer in each hole for a few minutes, problem solved!!

I had the same problem and took it completely out and was about to go buy a new one. I then found this site and uncovered that my wife had just cleaned it real good with a wet soapy sponge. I put it back in and the clicking start back up.

I took a hair dryer and blew it constantly through the knob holes (keep it clean fellas). After about 5 minute the clicking was less and less. 2 minutes later all silent.

I have a GE model jgp940 gas cooktop one of the four burner electrodes will not spark.

You have to determine if it is the electrode or the ignitor module and replace the component. A simple test is to swap the wires on the spark module for the non working one and see if the other electrode still works. If not the electrode is bad, if it does than the module is bad.

Gas cooktop starter continues firing

Turn your gas valve on, but leave your unit unplugged for a few days. You can light your burners in the meantime with a lighter so you can cook. Usually this problem is caused by moisture getting into one of your ignitor switches which are under your burner knobs. Most of the time the switch dries out and you can plug your unit back in after a few days. If it still keeps firing then you will have to replace one or more of your ignitor switches. Usually a very difficult job as most gas cooktops are now sealed burner units which means the top of your cooktop is bolted down to the burners with several screws or nuts that heat up with usage and become almost impossible to remove, without having to drill out the screws, or chiseling off the nuts. Be careful of boilovers or cleaning around the knobs with too much water to prevent this from happening again. Also get a surge protector at least 2000 joules or higher to prevent damage to you spark module. Good Luck, Appliance Specialists

I own a GE Profile gas cooktop model number JGP940SEK1SS. The igniter continues to make a sparking sound when it is plugged in . We have to unplug the the stove to make it stop.

It could be one of the burner switches shot it out or spark module malfunctions.

Igniter clicking when all four knobs in off position after water spill

It is possible that once the unit dries out the clicking will stop. If it doesn't, you will need to call someone to have the problem addressed. You will need a spark module and or an ignition switch(s).
