The ignition is clicking on my burner even though I turned it off. How do I stop this?
I unplugged the cooktop, but I don't know if it is safe to leave it this way. What should I look for? Can I keep it unplugged safely for any length of time?

I bought a used cooktop off ebay once that did the same thing. I discovered it to be one of the dials which was catching in the ignite position (although the dial didn't look depressed). Give the dials a good workout when the ignitor is clicking away--you might release the switch.
That fixed it for me and I soon identified the culprit dial. Every so often the constant ignition would come back but I'd just smack the guilty dial and it would stop.
