Spark ignitor won't stop clicking

We have a Jenn Air JGD8130 cooktop. Last night milk was accidently spilled on the stove and now the when the any of the knobs are turned to the OFF position, the ignitors continuously spark, and will not stop. it still lights a flame, but the sparks click. We tried unplugging it from the outlet and plugging it back in but they still will not stop sparking/clicking.

    My Jenn-Air cooktop igniters are possessed. The burners take turns making endless clicking. Sometimes, waving a hand over the flame gets it to stop. At other times, a Fonz-style whack on the surface. Shifting the position of pan ocassionally does the trick.

    I've had a dozen ranges in my lifetime, this one is the worst, hands-down.

Dry the ignitors and see if that works. If not, then get new ignitors.

All 4 igniters keep clicking, when one is on


All of the igniters are connected to one source. A series of small switches mount on each stem of each burner. Any of them can fire up the spark box and it in turn it fires off all the ignitors. If a boil over spills liquid into one or more of them switches the resulting continuity causes the clicking. Removing one wire at a time from each switch till the clicking stops is the solution.

Spark ignitor won't stop clicking


the spacing between the ignitor and the plat is less the minimum. that will cause the ignitor to ignite prematurely. use a small screw driver or a nail filler clean out the space between the ignotor and the plat.
