When I redraw my gradient it adds to the gradient rather than creating a new one. Help! I don't have the multiply blending mode selected so that is not the problem

If you're using a partial transparent gradient, that's what it will do: not cover up the section that is transparent in the new gradient. You need to delete the old gradient first. If your gradient didn't have transparency, then it should cover up the old one.

As already stated by @Chuck Uebele  that is what gradient with transparency will do. Area that is transparent will remain transparent, actually Gradient will not paint (not remove color beneath). Gradient is not painting transparency, only colors.

Thank you. I didn’t realize this. I thought my partially transparent gradient would simply redraw like the solid gradients. I was so puzzled.

Could you please post screenshots with the pertinent Panels (Toolbar, Layers, Options Bar, …) visible? 

 

Have you tried using a Gradient Layer?
