The right burner won't stop sparking, even after it has ignited. I interchanged the switch with the next burner & it stiil did not change. I checked the wires and they all looked good. Should I replaced the spark module?

ANSWER Hello Joel, Since the spark module has to read the actual resistance of the flame, there is probably a bad ground. I would loosen all of the screws around the burner assembly and re-tighten them. Sometimes a spill can cause the loss of the ground and sometimes it's an ignitor going bad. I would try this, then try the ignitor 74009336 before buying a new spark module 8286828
