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*. Once you're done using the oven, just turn the circuit breaker off and let it sit for 48 hours and the spark switches which got wet from spilling. Right now one or more of the switches is wet so it thinks you're trying to light the burner all the time even though that isn't the case. Once the oven dries out it should stop clicking but if not, then the spark switch that got wet would need to be replaced. Now on Gemini ranges, it doesn't matter which spark switch failed, because they come as a kit with all of the burner switches as one assembly. These are the switches below the burner knobs.

Hello and thanks for using this service, if you have been waiting do not worry or get upset. I am APPLIANCE-HVAC GURU a very experienced tech on here and I try to get to as many customers as I can. I just picked up your question now.
Please allow time for me to respond, sometimes I get the questions or responses late so please be patient as I have no control over the site issues. NOTE, I have nothing to do with your payment to the site and did not receive that money.
I am a different tech, this will likely not dry out and if it does it will smell horrible. You need to remove the burners then the screws that hold the burners to the frame. Once they are removed the top will lift up so you can get at the area to clean up the spill, then remove the front trim to use an air duster can to blow out the switches to clean them all out and clean up any liquid that is in there. This is a little bit of a job to do, but honestly letting it sit and crust over and dry is not a good option. I work on these for a living and would never tell someone to let spilled salad dressing dry up.
The only way I receive any credit at all for my time is by you selecting a STAR USING THE 5 STAR or VOTING RATING SYSTEM AT THE TOP OF YOUR PAGE before you leave for me so please make sure you are rating me not another tech. If you are not happy with the service please let me know before leaving a negative rating. This will also allow you to get directly back to me for FREE follow up questions and tips are greatly appreciated! Thanks GURU
I found that trying to blow dry them out only pushes the spill further into the switches and ore likely to permanently short them out.
Just let me know when you get the top up to get them all cleaned out and we can go from there.
