Hello- You probably need a new spark module which is about $125. There is the possibility that one of the burner switches is stuck on thus casing the constant clicking. You have probably figured out by now to just unplug the cooktop under the cabinet or shut off the breaker. You can still use it you will just need to use matches. Unfortunately you will probably need a Tech out to disassemble the unit to diagnose the exact cause. The whole top have to be removed. Good luck, best regards.

Two of my burners are clicking even when the stove is off. what should I do?


There is a switch that slides onto the shaft for each burner. When you turn the knob to a certain area it completes the circuit to the ignitor module. It sounds like you have a shorted switch. Unfortunately with most 'cooktops', these are not easy to get to.

It's also strange that only 2 are igniting, usually one module runs all the ignitors. When you turn one of the non-problem burners on, does it click when it supposed to and stop when it's supposed to?

The ignitors running constantly is annoying and may damage the module, but should not be dangerous unless you have other issues, ie., fuel leaks.

If you have access to basic hand tools and a multimeter I can walk you through the diagnosis.

I can't get the electric ignition to stop clicking. I'm not sure this is the right model, but it looked the closest to my cooktop


Hi- most likely the spark module is bad. Sometimes a burner swith gets stuck as well. Unplug the unit, the plug should be inside the cabinet. Take off the knobs and see if you see any obstructions and see if the knob posts move freely in and out (push to turn). Probably need to get a Tech out to look at it. If it is clicking even when the burners are off you can just leave it unplugged and light with a match to use it. If it is only clicking when you have the burners on check to be sure all the burner bases and caps are assembled correctly and seated, sometimes the electrode will continue to click if the burners are assembled wrong or are wet. Hope this helps a little. Good Luck.

Electric ignitors clicking


I'm sorry that I don't have a solution for you, but my Miele gas stove does the same thing. I had a repairman come out while it was under warrantee and they fixed it, but it was only temporary. It's doing it again, but, of course, it's no longer under warantee and will be very expensive to have Miele come out again. I've found that it's the right front burner that causes the clicking, so I've just stopped using it.
