Customeritll spark continously if it is not sensing properly,you can make sure all the caps are on straight and not crooked,you can take a piece of sandpaper and clean the build up on the metal part of the ignitor,not the ceramic part,if its still clicking you could have a defective spark switch or cracked ignitor,also make sure there is no moisture on the ignitors either..let me know if any problems

 

thanks randy
