My ignitors all SPARK (yes its always all four together) for 30 secs to 5 minutes when any combination of burners are started. Even if the burner is lit the ignitor will keep going. And it also randomly occurs later during cooking.
Can you help?

Burner cap- Piece that you can lift off in your hand

Burner base- Piece that remains on the stove after you have lifted a burner cap off.

Try cleaning the underside of the burner cap.  Concentrate on the metal ring that will come in contact with the burner base.  A Dremel tool is the best way, but sandpaper or steel-wool will work.  It should be shiny.  Then, clean the surface of the burner head that the burner cap will touch the same way.  Should be clean shiny metal.  If your module was bad it would never work correctly, same thing with the polarity of your outlet.  Usually intermittent performance on re-ignition units is the result of poor contact between the caps and the burner base.

Worked like a charm thank you extremely much. I thought that the ticking was going to drive me (short trip) crazy.

Have a good night.
