JGP636WEV7WW what might cause several burners to click and continue to click when unit is off? the only way to stop the clickicg is to unplug
Spark Module?
Update: now none of the burners click or ignite.

Clicking with all burner switches off is usually an indication that one or more of the burner switches got wet. If this is the case, and given the evolution of the problem, it's possible that the spark module has now been damaged or the spill has spread and is now grounding out the spark in the spark wires before it reaches the electrodes. Open it up and check for evidence of spills or residual wetness. Check for valid L1 supply with proper polarity to the spark module. If that checks good, and the spark module will not produce spark when one of the burner switches are closed, then replace the spark module. ==> http://www.repaircli...er=JGP636WEV7WW

Could I try drying everthing out, befroe replacing any parts. And it there a way to check the spark module, the cooktpo has worked finr for years and nothing has changed so the polarity should be OK.

I've had mixed success with removing the knobs and using a hair dryer.

And it there a way to check the spark module,


Only what I already explained in my previous post.

Never assume that, check with meter to verify - also if you disconnect the offending switch, the sparking should stop if it's a bad switch.
