Ok so this means that one of your spark switches has either failed or gotten wet. The spark switches are the switches just below/behind the knob that you turn to adjust the burners and turn them on. The best thing to do is just wait 24 hours and leave the unit unplugged. That may allow the switch time to dry out and start to work again. If it won't stop clicking, then turn your burners on one at a time and see which one stops the clicking. Whichever burner stops the clicking is the switch you need to replace.
