Question about Dacor Cooktops
One of our dacor gas cook tops continues clicking after lit and flame burning. It does not do this when off. I have checked burner for proper assembly and anode looks good. Thinking must be in control panel under knobs? It's the most used (largest) burner.

SOURCE: gas cook top
Most of the time when I come out for a service call with this problem, it is usually because the burner cap is not seated properly on the base. Look at the burner and make sure there are no uneven gaps. Most of the time you will have to rotate the burner cap till a notch or pin "seats" into place. Most burner caps just sit on the bases, and so they get knocked off or moved when the cooktop is cleaned or installed. Hope this helps!

I have a viking gas cooktop. The ignitor on one of my front burners wouldn't stop clicking even after the flame ignited. I swapped that ignitor with the ignitor from a back burner, expecting that the problem was with the ignitor and that the back burner would start to click incessantly, but at least I'd have my favorite front burner for use. Instead, the front burner was then only clicking 50% of the time and the back burner was fine, suggesting the problem was related to the burner not the ignitor. I pulled the front ignitor a bit away from the burner and now it is working normally. Hope this helps.

your problem is most likely the spark switch, but it could be you spark module but that is highly unlikely

The module might not sense the flame: check electrical connections: wire (and its contacts0 and conections by fryer chasis; to be sure please bond with 18AWG wire pilot burner with spark module green wire.

I just bought a bank repo home in So. Cal. that has the same Viking range as you have. Yes, the black lettering has almost entirely rubbed off. on this one too. Not good for such an expensive product.
I bit the bullet and ordered a new panel from appliancezone.com
Part # PE40057
The price is about $75, $80 with shipping, which is a ripoff I know.
I plan to put a clear coat of sealer on it and let my wife know to treat it gently.
I was surprised how many people think Viking products suck. Lots of negative reviews abound on the internet. If I was to buy a whole new range I think I'd avoid this brand.
