I'll bet this happens with only one particular burner.  Am I right or am I right?

i'm betting it is a jennair "expressions" cooktop that requires a new spark module.

Hi - thanks for the reply - yes it is only one burner, it did stop after about twenty minutes. Do I need to replace some thing?It is a Jenn-Air, 1993 5 burner model.Bob

Sounds like some water got into something and this shorted out the system, the clicking stopped when the water dried.
