One of the switches that control the ignitor is stuck; you might remove the knobs to see if the switch actuators are visible without removing other panels and check to see if they can be operated by annoying them with an insulated probe such as a chopstick or wooden skewer.
Ours are controlled by a cam that is part of the knob itself that passes an extension of the switch. The extension is visible with the knob removed.
Good thing you pulled the plug since the high voltage transformer that supplies the spark is definitely not designed for prolonged operation.

my jen-Air has a problem with it continuing to beep. Ive tried to get it to stop by pushing all the buttons. When I pust the off/cancel button it just keeps beeping. Tried the stop timer button and same thing. When I turn on either the bake or convection bake button it automatically just shuts off by itself. It is approx 10-13 years old. HELP, or please tell me to get a new one.

"Breaker tripped and all power blew when stove not in use. Can't turn breaker back on. Repairman thinks it is two switches since the wouldn't turn on. He fixed them so they didn't stick - but still tripper blew but at least not all the electricity."
Oban, This does NOT sound like a cook top issue --> "blew when stove not in use", "Repairman thinks it is two switches" (I assume you mean the breakers),
I could go on and on.... but what I've seen with these is improper connection at the junction box. In other words, whoever wired it up, screwed it up. Look at #4 in this diagram. The problem is happening here.
"He fixed them so they didn't stick"....Oban... the reason a breaker is there is to trip when there is a short circuit. It is most definitely NOT there to be bypassed! You may consider RE-considering your choice of electricians.
Go outside and kill the breaker. Then open up the junction box (you have to open the doors below the cook top). When you remove the cover of thew J-Box, I'll bet you see burn marks (if not melted plastic).
Check it out.

The problem that you're describing is commonly associated with the spark modulator. It usually occurs after a spill or when the ignitor electrodes have remained wet after a cleaning. If after a day or two it continues to spark intermittently on its own, then the only recourse would be to replace the module. Hope this helps,,,, Bill

If the bake
ignitor comes on - check the
the bake ignitor wires when it's on. Amperage should be 3 - 3.6A. If
than 3A - replace ignitor.
Ignitor part numbers (any will do, but the first one is a direct replacement): 12400035, WB13K21, WB2X9998, SGR412, NR020, 5303935066, 814269, 9753108.
All those are interchangeable, if you can splice the wires.
