After I bought this part, installed it and the clicking still did not stop I finally found the problem. If your ignitor can still click then it's still good. The problem is the electric connection between the head burners and the base burners (Top Assembly diagram). Put a little weight on the head burner while grabbing it with your hand and grind it into the base burner with a little twisting motion. Repeat for all 4 burners. Presto! (you could be more professional and use steel wool or sandpaper to.)
If you stll want to know how to install this part begin by removing the control panel bracket #24. Then remove the glass top w/seal #9 (after removing the knobs). You may have to tease this out because the rubber seal is sticky. The switch plate #14 comes off after removing 2 obvious screws at each end and 2 not-so-obvious star screws attaching it to the manifold #6. Remove the spark module by removing 2 of the 3 screws and sliding it out of the 3rd screw.

First I unplugged the electric line to the range. Then I removed the screw that holds the burner in place and then lifted the burner up. Pulled the elec line off it and then took the ignitor/sparker? out of the burner. inserted the new one and put the elec wire to it. screwed it back in place and turned on elec and tried the burner. But now it sparks sometimes and sometimes not. And only if holding the gas on longer than I want as it stinks up the kitchen and is dangerous. What else does this burner need to work properly?

Used a pair of pliers and pulled firmly on ignit. elect. till the retaining clip pulled off the bottom of the elect.The wire pulled off the bottom of it and I had to use a long- thin- nose set of needlenose pliers to pull the wire out of where the elect. came out.Plugged wire in place and snapped electrode back in place without using the retainer clip.Works great.Thanks Wade

TURN OFF THE GAS SUPPLY & POWER TO THE STOVE. Disconnect the gas line & power source to the stove. Remove the complete counter top stove and place it upside down on a flat surface to enable you to remove all the surrounding small screws with a nut driver, then separate the bottom from the top accessing the retaining ring holding the ceramic electronic Ignition in place, remove the electric wire from the the old igniter. The most difficult part of the job was removing the retaining ring and installing the new ring.Job successfully completed.

Pull the knobs, undo the torx nuts, fish out the ones I dropped into the cooktop; pull the panel to reveal the igniter module; undo the three nuts holding it - then transfer the wires one-by-one to the new module; fish out the screws with the magnet; secure the new igniter; replace the panels; redo the torx nuts; fish out the once I drop (AGAIN) and we're good to go. I was almost out of matches. The most useful tool was the magnet on a stick - my fingers are too big for the spaces I had to get into. Anyone can do this, and it saves money...
