When using oven only, oven igniter clicks, pilot lights, oven burner fires up fine, then oven reaches set temperature.  It stops burner on its own.  The oven pilot light stays lit and the oven burner eventually comes back on normal, (to maintain set temperature).  My problem is the stove top burner igniters, (two of them), start clicking when the oven burner stops and oven pilot is still lit.  They click every 5-6 seconds until, eventually, oven burner re-lights.  Then they stop clicking and are quiet again until the oven burner stops and the stove top igniters start clicking again.  Then the  cycle repeats itself.  I know it's an older unit, but I like to try and keep the old stuff working.  I'm 58 and don't want to be replaced by something when I have a small issue.  The stove top operates fine with burner and igniter functioning fine.

Hello.
These can be tricky.. sometimes it is a burner switch that has a short in it and sometimes it is the spark control module.. this one would be yours https://www.searspartsdirect.com/product/30y6u6wln7-0022-364/id-wb49x10192
maybe a good place to start is to disconnect one burner switch at a time and see if the clicking stops when you go through your regular process. I have seen on  occasion too where liquid gets spilled and makes its way on to a burner switch and this sort of thing starts happening.
