Hi Im sorry to hear that.

The only way to stop it is by removing the wires from that burners control knob.

Or turning off the main breaker for the hob for now. Make sure the breaker in the mains box is OFF before doing this work.

The problem is that the control knob has a switch on the back of it that is shorted(stuck in the ignite position internally).

This should really be fixed by a gas professional. But if you are handy and have the tools, you could replace this part safely with my assistance.

The best place to get that part is :

Its best to call them to order this part, you may need to buy the whole control knob if the dont sell just the switch, but thats still not very expensive ;-)
