All four igniters are clicking every six seconds or so. It is just one single click on all four burners. Not click click click click. Nothing is turned on at all. This happened as I was wiping off the range top, not anything overly wet at all just a damp cloth.
If I light a burner, all igniters will stop. Being that this is a saturday, and no support is available, I will just have to unplug it for the time being I guess. I would rather not as it is a pain to get to.
Hence I am here looking for suggestions.

There are electrical switches on the burner valve shaft, beneath the knobs.



Moisture likely got into one or more of them creating a short.

You can try drying the area under each burner knob using a hairdryer, etc. If that doesn't work someone will have to try to isolate which of those switch(es) are malfunctioning and replace it/them.

I appreciate the reply Dan O. I turned off the breaker so that no one would use the oven. Several hours later I turned it back on and all was well and good again. I am certain that you were correct in your diagnosis.
