Hello. Thank you for choosing Just Answer. I will be helping you with your question today. Did this happen after spilling something or cleaning it?
Customer: replied 6 years ago.
Some liquid spilled last night, but iit worked fine after that and shut off like normal. Tonight it came on without a problem but now will not shut off.
Expert:  Appliance Man replied 6 years ago.
You have a bad spark switch. The only way you can get it to stop clicking right now is to turn the power off. You will need a multimeter to determine which switch is bad.
