One of the ignitor switches on my kitchenaid 36" cooktop is sparking continuously. There is no smell of gas. The knobs are turned off. What should I do?
Hi,My name is XXXXX XXXXX I will be happy to try and help you.
Have you cleaned the cook top or had a spillover recently?

Just unplug the cooktop,or turn off the breaker and wait for it to dry out,probably 3 to 6 hours or maybe overnight depending on how wet it is ,and it will be fine.If the ignitors get wet,the spark module thinks the flame is out and tries to relight.
