Question about GE Cooktops
After washing the knobs in the DW, I put them back on. They may have been wet inside because it shorted something. Any ideas?
SOURCE: I have a GE Profile
the ignitor switch for that particular burner is stuck in the on position. I may have some debris in it which is causing the problem. you could try to clean it using a blast of air from a keyboard air cleaner aerosol can, available at any office supply but most likely you will have to replace it.

The igniter module is working fine. One of the switches (which are on each valve shaft) is stuck or shorted out. Pull a wire off each one at a time to determine which one is bad. Careful! 120 volts to each wire. Also, this can happen after you spill water into the valve area, if that sounds right, let it dry out.

replace your spark module
have you spilled liquid on the cooktop recently?
if yes let it dry for a couple of days and see what happens.
sometimes when you spill liquid on the cooktop it grounds out the spark module and it will continue to spark until it drys.
let me know if you need more help
