Hello kmazzia and Welcome to the Do It Yourself Web Site and my Gas Appliances forum.

Try cleaning the sparking element. Use light weight sanding paper and or steel wool pad. The idea is to just clean up the outter surface of the element and pilot assembly where the spark grounds out to the assembly.

Usually the problem is caused by two conditions. The element which creates the spark is defective or the spark module is defective.

The sparking element turns off the sparking when it gets heated by the burner flames or pilot flame, which is heating it. When the part becomes defective, it does not signal the module to stop the flow of current to it.

Replacing the sparker usually resolves that problem. However, the module may be the problem. Retail parts dealers can also help determine what the possible problem may be.

Bring the make, model and serial numbers and stop in at the store. The info will help to determine the possible problem causes.

The clicking sound more of a ticking sound.. Is happing only when the oven is on or when it's hot?

If it's only when it's hot.. the oven shell is expanding.. but it only happens when it's cooling down or warming up...

Give a full model number and we can try to help.. Jeff maybe will be able to help out more once we get the full model from you.
