This answer was rated:

We were cleaning the top of the stove (Frigidaire 40" dual fuel) around the burners - removed the controls and tops of burners -- one of the igniters is stuck in the on position and won't stop clicking. I have the gas lit and there is a flame. What can I do to get it to stop clicking?
Hello, and thank you for using this service. I'll be helping you with your problem today.

If you turn all the burners on, does the clicking stop?

No the clicking does not stop if you turn them all on.

OK so it sounds like one of your spark switches got wet when you were cleaning the unit. You will need to unplug the the oven or turn the circuit breaker off to the oven for about 24 hours and allow it to dry out. Most of the time, that's all that's needed to get the unit back and working. If not, then one of the spark switches (the part behind the burner knob that tells the burner to spark) would need to be ordered and replaced because it has shorted out unfortunately.
