A couple of weeks ago, the igniters started clicking constantly,
even when burners were on-- eventually I realized the spark on
the Back Left burner was weak, and closer inspection found that a cake of ash coated the burner near the igniter.
After I cleaned it off, the BL igniter sparks normally,
and after it lights, the igniters stop clicking.
However, now the igniters ONLY stop if the Back Left burner is on.
Turning on any one of the other 3 burners will spark & ignite normally,
but the igniters don't stop clicking after it lights.

Here's the parts diagram for your model:
#5 and #6 are your spark burner switches.

Remove all the knobs and check to make sure each burner switch is set and mounted properly on each burner gas valve, I've seen many times one of more have worn out and become loose and keep clicking when the flame is going.
