Got a call from an owner of this gas cooktop, telling me that the ignitiors keep firing and the only way to stop them is to unplug the unit.
Please advise:

my advice would be to check the spark switches, part number 12 in the breakdown. Disconnect them one by one untill the clicking stops, then you have found the cuplrit.Posted Image

Check power supply polarity (proper ground/neutral) before you get too carried away

Someone got carried away with the spray bottle when they cleaned the controls-- the switch for the affected burner got wet and is completing the spark circuit for the burner. :angel:
