I have a viking gas cooktop. The ignitor on one of my front burners wouldn't stop clicking even after the flame ignited. I swapped that ignitor with the ignitor from a back burner, expecting that the problem was with the ignitor and that the back burner would start to click incessantly, but at least I'd have my favorite front burner for use. Instead, the front burner was then only clicking 50% of the time and the back burner was fine, suggesting the problem was related to the burner not the ignitor. I pulled the front ignitor a bit away from the burner and now it is working normally. Hope this helps.

sounds like you have a bad switch. maybe on the large burner.. some of those switches can be replaced without the whole harness.

Yes it should be an easy fix.
Ignitors simply go bad from time to time.
If you have a meter you can check to see if you have voltage going to the ignitor. If you do, and it isnt trying to ignite, replace the ignitor.
If you have no meter, ignitors are usually less than 30 bucks so you will not be to much in the hole by just replacing it.
If you lift the cover to access the ignitor, it should be held in by two crews, the gas tube, and a wire to the flame sensor.
Make sure you turn off all gas and electric before disassembling.
You can find ignitors at your local appliance parts supply house.
All you need is the model and serial numbers.

Try cleaning the knobs. I did the same thing you did (turning the circuit breaker off but that did not solve the problem.
My wife just tried turning the knobs and that seemed to work. It appears that one of the knobs may have been so sticky that the though it's in the OFF position it thinks it's still ON.
