Question about Cooktops
Can't locate model #. Is a GE Profile 4-burner gas cooktop, knobs all on the right edge. 10 yrs old. Water got in at knob hole when cleaning. Now the ignition clicking occurs for that one burner when it's in the wrong position. On "lite" gas flows but no clicking. On "low" the clicking occurs, but there's not enough gas to ignite I guess. Burner will light on "lite" if I turn any other burner on at the same time. #1 What needs to be replaced? #2 How do we get IN there? Does something have to be released or disconnected? Thank you so much.
To access the igniter switches, remove all screws from each burner. Because the unit is >10ys. the screws may be rusted and difficult to remove so do this carefully. If a screw does break, the orifice bracket may also have to be replaced. If you are fortunate to get the screws removed, the top panel should lift off, gaining access to the igniter switched located atop each gas valve. It would be best to replace all switches for reliable operation.
If you need further assistance, let me know

Sounds like the switch electric sending unit needs to be Ither cleaned and dry good or replced. It's not hard at all, They are located under the knob switches, you will have to remove the knobs and the top cover, they look like a small square box wit a hole in the middle with two wires on the sides, just unplug the wires and lift the box off the switch rod. cleane them and dry them good and put them back.......that should do it.....Good Luck
