Hello, and thank you for using this service. I'll be helping you with your problem today.

So this is a common problem and you can continue using the oven for now, but it won't stop clicking until everything dries out *hopefully*. Right now one or more of the switches is wet or has failed so it thinks you're trying to light the burner all the time even though that isn't the case. If one of the switches is wet, once the oven dries out it should stop clicking but if not, then the spark switch that got wet would need to be replaced. In the mean time, just unplug the unit for 24 hours or flip the breaker of for 24 hours and allow it to dry out just in case a switch got wet. If that doesn't work, then the faulty burner switch would need to be replaced.
