If your cooktop continues to click even after you turn the knob to off, the noise can be a little bit unsettling. Igniter switches can sometimes short out when they get wet, so this may happen after cooking or cleaning your cooktop. If the clicking continues even after the igniter switches are dry, our friends at Sears Parts Direct have a few tips to find a solution.

Potential Fixes

 

Replace the Spark Igniter Switch

The spark igniter switch is what you use to turn on the heat to your cooktop. It completes a circuit with the spark module component which causes the burners to spark when you’re lighting up the stove. If your burners are constantly sparking (clicking) even when you’re not trying to light your cooktop, replace the spark igniter switch.

Replace the Spark Module

The spark module provides the spark electrodes with voltage when a burner control knob is turned to light a cooktop. If the spark module does not deliver voltage to the spark electrodes when you’re trying to start a stove, it should be replaced.
