Question about Kitchen Ranges
After cleaning my range, whenever we cook now, the auto igniter continues to spark.
SOURCE: My DCS range continues to
Each burner has a switch and all are wired into one big happy family. Every now and then a pot will boil over and liquid will get into one of these switches. Sometimes aftera day or 2 the switch will dry out and the problem will go away. To see which one is bad you would have to access them and disconnect one at a time till the ticking noise stops. Then replace that switch.

Often times, just leaving the range unplugged for a time will solve the problem, which is most often caused by water or a cleaning agent getting into an igniter switch behind a burner knob. After the switch drys out it usually starts working again. In the mean time, you can still use the burners by lighting them manually with one of those long lighters, but you will not be able to use the oven or broiler without electricity. If the range continues to spark after being left unplugged for more than a day or two, you will have to determine which switch behind the burner knobs is causing the problem. Please don't bother rating, as anything but a Fix-Ya will lower my score. Thanks.

This happens to mine if there is anything on any of the burners, such as food residue or moisture. Check all the burners to see that nothing is touching the burner area where the gas jets are. Even a little water can make this happen.

One of your "switches" to your burners is shorting causing unit to spark when in the off mode, or, you may have a bug problem, bugs have made their way into the spark module.
1: if no bug problem, disconnect stove from electricity, lift top up, remove all of the single connections to each switch to top burners(make sure they don't have any bare wires touching the frame), then plug unit back in, if still sparking then replace module.
