Sounds like its either the spark switch is shorted, or the spark module.
Did it start after somebody cleaned it?

I cant seem to pull up your model number, but for most of them, you take the burners off and remove the torx screws and the igniters. Then you can remoce the top ov the stove top. The spark switches are on the valves. One of them is probably stuck on.
With the piwer off, disconnect the spark switch from the module. Check it for continuity. It should be open. If it is closed, one of the switches is stuck. You may be able to buy the set of switches, or you may have to buy a single one and then do further testing to determine which switch is bad
