Gas Stove Won't Stop Clicking

My gas stove will not stop ticking. It ticks after the burner is on and even after I turn off the burners. I have to unplug it to make it stop. Any suggestions on what I can do to fix it? Thanks!

  1. This happened to my stove. I shut the power off for a while and when I put it back on the clicking had stopped. If yours doesn't I would call for a repairman.

        it is the igniter,my big doublestack,does it ,it has done it for over a yr.i orderred another one waiting for it to quit but it nver has stopped working ,just keep using it//

      2. Sometimes the burners or parts below the surface can get wet or dirty and cause the clicking. If you wait a few days for everything to dry out, it can stop on it's own. Which is a good thing if your warranty has run out and the repairman costs about a billion dollars an hour.

        1. Mine has always done that (GE Monogram Cooktop). My DH installed a handy switch in the cupboard below it. When it starts clicking I just have to reach down and flip the switch.

          1. Mine does it if I do a boil over, but once it turns back on it is fine.

            1. My old Maytag range did this after I would clean it. You have to get around each ignmter with a papertowel and really dry them, Canned air is also good just blow dry around them and it should stop,
