The range pilot light mechanism clicks when starting a burner but never stops clicking after the burner lights. All burner lights with the pilot light but just keeps clicking after the burner lights. Only way I can stop the clicking is to unplug the electricity. I don't believe it is the ignitor as my assumption is that affected burner would not light if the ignitor was bad. All burners lights using the pilot ignitor, it just doesn't stop clicking or keeps acting like it is trying to ignite the burner even though it is lit. Do you think it is the spark module? Second question, how do I take the top of the unit off to get to the spark module or do I have to remove the entire unit from the counter to access the spark module?
