The valve switches are wet and shorting causing the ignitor to stay on. It may stp once they dry out and if not replacement is the only option.

Unplug the range and wait 24 hours for the liquid to dry up. The clicking will stop when it is dry. The liquid has shorted the ignition switches causing the igniters to click.

Electric ignitor


You may have spilled some liquid on one of the burner switches or one of the switches is shorting. Wait for a day or two and if the clicking doesn't stop - check all switches with an ohmmeter. The one which shows any continuity in normal (not "lite") position needs replacement.

GE range electric lighter will not stop lighting


Is your range gas with electric ignition? And are the igniters constantly clicking with the burners off? If so it sounds like you may have spilled liquids into the electric switches at the burner control knobs causing them to short. This is a common problem and the best fix is to unplug the range from the power and let the range dry out for 24 to 48 hours. Sometimes using a hairdryer can speed up the drying process. If you did not spill or get any liquids into the burner ignition switches then there is a posibillity that one of the switches is defective. You would need to test each igniter switch with a continuity tester and the burner knobs in the off position(power unplugged for safety) to see which switch is defective and replace that switch.

2 of my burners keep clicking, even when completely off


Did you recently clean the range? If you get liquid into the igniter switches(located behind the gas control knob) or into the contacts where the igniters are located then it can cause a short and make the igniters to operate even when the knob is off. So if that is the case then the only fix is to unplug the range for 24 hours and let the liquid dry out. If the liquid is not the problem then it could be the igniter switches in the gas control knob are broken and stuck in the closed(on) position.
