Stuck auto ignition

My auto-ignition is jammed and the connector on each hob is sparking constantly, as if the knobs were pressed down (which they aren't). Suggestions?

    this is the exact same thing happening to me. although the clicking seems to reduce while the oven is on.

Either one of the ignition switches are stuck down internally or the ignition pack is faulty, no other possible cause. Regards Advisor

The ignition on my hob is sparking every second or so constantly on it's own? The knobs don't seem to be stuck down or anything obvious. All four ignition points on the cooking points are visibly sparking.

I think the problem lies at your knob mechanism. Try to service the mechansm. Currently the possible problem is lies at the contact point(electrical) might accidently contact without pressing down the knob. This normally occur when it is hyper press or there are grease in between the contact. Possible solution is replace the damage knob... or repair it.

Gas Hob constant ignition clicking

Had the same problem. All five burners were continuously igniting, after my wife had given the stove a clean. Turned off the power, removed the five knobs and corresponding rubber rings, and used a hair dryer on the five holes where the knobs were for about ten minutes in total. Hey presto, when I turned the power back on, the constant igniting had stopped. Thank you all. I love the internet :-)
