Why won't my auto igniter stop igniting on my Jenn air gas stove?

It's a 5 burner gas stove / double electric oven. The center burner's auto igniter will not stop igniting unless the stove is unplugged!

Without knowing the model number of your range I will not be able to provide any specific information only general. There will likely be a switch located over the stem of each burner valve. The spark igniter switch should be sitting stationary on top of the valve. When you turn the gas valve it causes the switch to close and complete an electrical circuit to the spark module and it begins sparking and making the clicking sound. If you had a boil over or if water spilled into one of the burner valves it will cause the switch to short and start clicking and sparking at the electrodes.

I recommend resubmitting your question with the model number for model specific information and repair instructions.
