Stove hasn't been used or cleaned in a few days, so it's not a moisture issue. All igniters are sparking unless I turn off circuit breaker.

Stove is a Wolf Model R486G

Secondly, I do not know your skill level so please try and let me know if I am going beyond your knowledge or comfort zone thanks!

More than likely one of the burner switches is stuck in the ON position. There is a switch behind each burner knob on the shaft that switch on when you turn the burner on to light it. Sometimes the switch gets stuck closed. Try to turn the burners off and on a couple times and it may stop, otherwise you will have to find and replace the stuck switch.

All I ask is please use the Star Rating Link at the top of your page before leaving, that is the only way I am paid anything through the site and that will also get you a DIRECT LINK emailed to you to get back to me! are greatly appreciated so thank you very much for using this service.
