My Kenmore Elite Gas...

My Kenmore Elite Gas Slide in Range, after cleaning it, it is clicking like when you start it up. All the burners go on but it continues to click.

Contractor's Assistant: Can you guesstimate how old your Kenmore is? And just to clarify, what's the exact model?

The model number is(###) ###-####

Contractor's Assistant: Do you plan on doing the work yourself?

I guess

Contractor's Assistant: Anything else we should know to help you best?

If the unit continues to try to ignite, it means that one of your burner switches has either failed or is possibly wet. If you were cleaning, then likely it is just wet. Usually you can just unplug the cooktop and wait 24 hours for the burner switches to dry out. After 24 hours, plug it back in and if it works then great. If not, then the shorted spark switch below one of the knobs will need to be replaced to resolve the issue.
