Turn one burner on and all 4 keep clicking. This will stop when the on burner is turned down to the low setting. Spark module replaced about 1.5 yrs ago. Please HELP! Denis

Does this happen with only one of the knobs ?

They all spark continously, but only when ANY one of the control Knobs are in the on position. And it makes no difference which burner has been selected.

... and if they are all ON, they all stop clicking when any ON Burner is turned down ?

New Info from potential customer. Turn 3 burners on high,all 3 continue to click. Turn the #4 burner on high & the clicking stops.[This means all 4 are on high now]. Also, 3 burners on high, then turn one of the burners to LOW - then the 3 stop clicking. Also, Back right & Front left on High WITH Back left & Front right on simmer = NO Clicking. Also, the 2 Right burners on simmer OR the 2 Right burners on high = clicking. Also, the 2 back burners on High & the front left burner on Low = NO clicking. Also, 2 on High 7 2 on simmer[random pic] = NO clicking. No thorough cleaning has been done so far. Could this be a ground path issue? Denis

Has there been any recent House electrical work done ?

Spark module was replaced about 1.5 yrs ago. The erratic sparking has been going on ever since this spark module was replaced. Prior to the module replacement, there was no sparking at the burners, which prompted spark module replacement. Prior to the NO sparking, the burners worked fine. Also, there has NOT been any recent house wiring done. THANKS for your help! Denis

They all should spark when a knob is in the ON position.
They should stop sparking once the knob is moved beyond the ON position.

Back again. Finally got to work on this range. Scrubbed burner heads & flame spreader with wire brush & sandpaper & alcohol. Also checked ground path continuity between burner heads,burner tubes,flame spreaders, each between each other & also each back to reig module. Also verified ground path back to panel. Also installed new Reig module. After all of that , Still have continuous sparking . BUT I noticed something while I was there. If I turned on (3) of the burners & then turned on right/rear burner the sparking stops. Also if I try to turn on JUST right/rear burner, Nothing happens. Would the Spark Ignitor Switch for right/rear burner: #1 Cause continuous sparking when the other burners are on? #2 Cause right/rear burner to not spark at all?
