The module is hooked up to a series of small switches that mount on each stove knob. One of them has decided to keep a going. The way to figure out which one it is: While it is ticking along use some insulated needle nose pliers and remove a wire off of each switch and put each one back carefully. Keep doing this until the clicking stops.The switches cost about 10 dollars or less depending where you live.
