Whirlpool / electrical fire

United States Review updated:

Whirlpool gas range drop in MOD # SCS3017RB00, SER # XS4112936.
We purchased our home, from JTS new in 2005, only lived there part time until February 2016 and full time since, hence the unit only has 5 yrs use.
Last night I hear tic, tic, tic, I look around then I head a couple of ticks, I go to the kitchen and notice that the igniters on the burners are flickering, I check the on/off knobs they are off then all 4 burners are ignited, by the time I get the bottom drawer out and pull the plug and turn off the gas supply the wires catch fire, nothing I could do, tried to unbolt the unit but by that time the wires burnt up leaving a burnt wire smell all through the house. What if I was not home, this is how electrical fires start. I'm mystified how this occurred and wonder if other units have done the same thing?
