Question about GE 30 in. JGP326 Gas Cooktop
If they are firing when the burners are turned off:
It is likely that either a spark switch or your module is shorted. The spark switches are located below each knob and you would have to disconnect one at a time to see which one is causing the problem. The mostly likely culprit would the the module itself. Unfortunately, all parts are inside the cooktop and involve removing the top cover to access inside the burner box to do any testing or exchanging of parts.
If they are firing only when the burners are turned on:
You either have an electrode on one of the burners that is not sensing the flame properly or you have a bad module. Use just one burner at a time to see which one is causing the electrodes to continue to click. Once you've determined which one it is, clean the spark tip (electrode) with something coarse like high grit sand paper or a tooth brush. If the problem still persists then you need a new spark module.
Hope i helped you.
