My stove top keeps trying to ignite even though all burners are off (yes, I check that all burners are in fact off). They clicking sound increases when I actually turn a burner on, but still continues at half the rate when off.

Here is some general information I can supply without the information I requested above. Make sure the electrode, which is a 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. Check for are the ignition switches under the surface control knobs, the switches can twist and break. This keep the spark module on and the spark clicking even when the burner is light. Another possibility is a bad spark module, which would need to be replaced. If the switch got wet by a pan boiling over or cleaning the stove, a hair dryer can be used to dry it out.

Reply to Edward's Post: Hi,
It's a Magic Chef. I partially opened the lid that houses all the ignition and gas lines to clean the area. You can't remove the lid completely without removing the gas lines so I only opened it part way. Then when I plugged the oven back into the wall the problem started. I disconnected each burners ignition to isolate the problem but that didn't work so I jiggled the module control unit and it's now working. Should I take it any further or leave alone?

I would imagine in cleaning the area you got some moisture in the controls. If it is working now, you do not need to do anything else. Congratulations on fixing your own appliance.
