    I have the same problem, and yes, our cooktop just got wet. It's a Kenmore, but I'm not sure of the model number.

My ge monogram stove top burner( model zgu366h)continues to ignite. even after the flame is lit

If you are saying the clicking continues you must move the burner knob past the LITE position.
If it continues clicking with the knob past the LITE position the ignitor switch behind the knob is bad.

What causes gas igniter to keep clicking when gas is off

Just solved this on the Kenmore model 911.33389 (same unit). Ignitors started with no one touching the cooktop. It has had a history of doing this and, this time, sparks were visible under the knob. Disassembled cooktop (don't forget to unplug and shut off the gas!). Performed "smell test" for burned electronics. Found smell in #3 ignitor switch. Disassembled and found worn, burned, and fried. Parts list was inside unit but had a typo for the "ignitor switch". Showed WB18T10240. Ordered that only to discover it was the transformer to ignitor wire harness set (no photo on website!). Wrong part... ugh! Dug deeper for the correct part #. It was WB18T10239 but it has been replaced with WB18T10344. Noted on some website that someone installed one and then the ignitor was NOT synchronized. Turns out, you can install WB18T10344 about three different ways. Mine was 22 degrees off vertical (different than original) and now my unit works perfectly! Also, install the new switch harness (if that's what you do) starting from the left front valve then clockwise. The original unit installed from the right front valve, then clockwise. Hope this helps.

We have a GE free-standing range top. I spilled water everywhere when my pot overflowed, and the clicking noise will not stop. All burners burn though, what to do?

This is a very common problem when moisture comes in contact with the ignitor. The ignitor sometimes stays in one position causing the clicking sound. it will eventually wear itself out. Best thing to do is try to take it apart, clean it, dry it and adjust it if necessary. If that doesn't work for you, then the ignitor may have to be replaced. Good luck

Spark ignitors on ge jgp636 either don't work or lght wrong burnr

Electric gas igniters sometimes get stuck in one position causing a clicking sound. The clicking sound that you hear is the electric arc that is pulsing from the igniter conductor (wire) to ground (the gas burner). It receives power from the electrical outlet that the stove is plugged into.
Residue from food and sometimes cleaning products may be preventing the igniter from producing a spark (Arc) to the base of the burner. This is a common problem that occurs when the stove has been cleaned or food is allowed to build up. Make sure that the igniter and the burner base are clean and dry. This will help with proper operation. Oven cleaner and a small tooth brush may be used to accomplish this. Another problem with ignition may occur if you have too little (touching) or too much space between the igniter and the base of the burner; it will prevent the burner from igniting. You should only have a little more space than the thickness of a nickel between the burner base and the igniter. A good “blue” arc from the igniter to the burner base is optimal. If this doesn’t work, you may need to replace the electric igniter module. Good luck.

The electrodes are ticking when we turn on the burners

THAT IS THE IGNITOR FOR THE GAS. TURN THE KNOB JUST BEYOND THE START POSITION AND IT SHOULD STOP. IF NOT UNPLUG THE STOVE AND FIND THE IGNITOR ON THE BURNER HEAD AND CLEAN IT WITH A SOFT TOOTHBRUSH. PLUG THE STOVE IN AND IT SHOULD STOP CLICKING
