Thank you for asking your question on Just Answer. Is this on a stove or what appliance?

Unplugging you stove will stop the clicking and will be needed before attempting any of this information. Here are a few things you will need to check. Make sure the electrode, the small metal piece that the spark comes off from, is clean and the holes in the burner are clean, use a pin or paper clip to clean out the burner holes. The next thing to check for are the ignition switches under the surface control knobs, the switches can twist and break and keep the spark module on and the spark keeps clicking even when the burner is light. If these are OK, you may have a bad spark module, and it will need to be replaced. If you have just cleaned your stove there could be moisture in the controls. Leaving it unpluged over night should correct this problem. You can call Jenn-Air Customer Service 1-800-Jenn-Air, during their hours of operation for specific help if needed.
