Good evening. My name is ***** ***** I'll be helping you with your cooktop. I apologize about the delay. The only thing to stop the clicking for now is to just unplug the cooktop or flip the circuit breaker off to the unit. When the cooktop won't stop clicking, it means that one of your burner switch is stuck closed. Now normally this happens because water or some other liquid works it's way under the burner knobs and onto the the spark switch so if you think moisture may be causing this issue, just leave the unit unplugged for 24 hours and let it dry out. When you re-apply power if it stops clicking you should be good to go again. If it starts clicking right away again, then one of your spark switches behind/under one of your burner knobs has failed and would need to be replaced.
