Ignitor on burner #2 keeps clicking even after burner #1 lights
If I start burner #1, burner #2 keeps clicking. If I start both burner 1 & 2, then burner #3 keeps clicking, etc. etc. I'm now having to light them manually. Its a new install, I got a great deal at Lowe's because it was the floor model, so its never been used, but I installed it 1 1/2 years after I bought it so the warranty on labor has expired & I don't trust A & E Factory Services to come & fix it. Any advice would be appreciated greatly!

I did have the same problem after the house keeping people done with cleaning. They used window/surface cleaner. First I asked them not to clean the ignitor with any cleaner. Here is what I did to solve the problem
I took scotch scour pad (one that you use for washing dishes), In dry state I polished ignitor switch. It is abrading the residuals and deposits on the top and polishing it. Don't use any thing more abrasive than that. MAGIC - I don't have any more problem.
I have a viking gas cooktop. The ignitor on one of my front burners wouldn't stop clicking even after the flame ignited. I swapped that ignitor with the ignitor from a back burner, expecting that the problem was with the ignitor and that the back burner would start to click incessantly, but at least I'd have my favorite front burner for use. Instead, the front burner was then only clicking 50% of the time and the back burner was fine, suggesting the problem was related to the burner not the ignitor. I pulled the front ignitor a bit away from the burner and now it is working normally. Hope this helps.
