Keeping this in consideration, why does my gas stove keep clicking?
One of the most common reasons a gas stove starts clicking is because the burner cap is out of alignment. Once the cooktop is completely cool, remove the burner grate to access the cap beneath it. Remove the cap and re-center it on the base. Try lighting the burner again.
