Thermidor gas cooktop wont' stop clicking/sparking

Today some water spilled on one of the burners of my Thermidor gas cooktop. Now the electric ignition/lighter on that burner won't stop sparking unless I turn on the flame and leave it on. As soon as I turn off the flame, the sparking/clicking starts again. Please advise.

You can use a hair drier to remove the water on the igniter .before you do it close the valve of the gas tank.and apply heat to the igniter to dry the water.this cause a short circuit on the ignition of your stove..dont worry as soon as the water dries the spark will stop..

hope this helps you..

please rate my help tnx God Bless!

BOILING WATER SPILLED OVER FROM POT INTO COOKTOP AND NOW IGNITOR KEEPS CLICKING


Hi, water is a great conductor of electricity. It is likely nothing to be concerned about in this case though, if you light the burners and allow the water to burn off/evaporate from the ignitors it should be fine. It happens all the time with gas ranges and cooktops. Once the ignitors are dry they will stop conducting/sparking unwanted. Hope that helps calm your concern. Thanks for coming to "fixya" for your solution. Please take a second after reading this to rate the info provided to you. Good luck. Macmarkus :)

Viking 30" gas professional series cooktop sparking problem


And before that Most likely one of the ignition switches (they are under knobs) got shorted possibly due to spilled liquid or a cleaning stuff sprayed on. In that case it should stop sparking after a switch drys. Still no go replace the spark control unit.

Thanks

Gas Jenn Air Cooktop Issue with Electric Starter


Did you spill water near/on knobs? if so leave to dry out for 24 hours. If still clicking after 24 hours one of the switches has shorted out and needs to be replaced. You can find which one with a multi meter/condinuity test. Hope this helps...Good Luck

Spark ignitors on gas stovetop wont stop sparking


Make sure yo haven't spilled liquid on the ignitor becuase this will cuase all ignitors to spark constantly. If all is dry, the spark module must be replaced.
