    The ignitors on my DCS six-burner unit do the same thing: They continue to click in harmony even after the desired burner is lit, but, interestingly, only if the flame on the lit burner is set below a certain low level. We frequently have to cook at much higher burner setting than needed just stop the annoying clicking.

    I replaced the spark module, but this did not solve the problem. Any other suggestions? Thanks

    I've had intermittent igniter sparking/clicking even when the burners are off but always resolved within minues by turning burner on for awhile. Today I have all 4 burners cliclkng and its driving me crazy. What's a temporary fix?

I have a gas glass cook top (JGC9536) with a problem at the right front surface burner (12,500 btu). I used to be able to just turn the switch on high and the burner would light. Now, there is spark and...

Make sure there is no blockage of the burner near where the spark jumps. All it takes is a drop of water to stop the gas flow near the spark. Most likely you can use a knife or some other thin blade to clear the slots where the flame comes out of the burner.

Electronic igniters will not turn off when the gas burner lites. all four igniters run untill you turn off the nob or unplug the unit

I'm dealing with this same problem. This cooktop has a dedicated simmer burner which is the only thing going on the lowest setting. This simmer burner seems to be how the igniter senses that it can stop. If it doesn't light, the igniter keeps clicking. Usually cleaning the burner will solve this. You may need to unscrew the nut holding the lower piece of the burner in place in order to clean it up.
Good luck!

Electronic ignition

Most likely you got water (or some other liquid) into the control knobs. Unplug, go to bed and try it again in the morning. If you continue to futz with it, you run the chance of burning out the electronics in the control knob, like I did. :(
