Question about Kitchen Ranges
I have a four burner kitchen aid cooktop. I just bought the house and am not sure of the model. Two of the knobs do not provide a spark to the burners. The other two knobs provide sparks to all four burners. I am able to light the burners that don't receive a spark from the correct knobs when I use a match. So I know gas is flowing to all four burners. Is it an easy and cheap fix?
The igniters probably should be replaced. You can order new ones for about 15 - 20 dollars each. They are easy to replace and sears parts direct will show you a printable schematic.

Turning any knob starts the spark via a switch behind each which should disengage when the (any) knob is turn further.
One of your switches is stuck.
I think you should be able to remove the range-top for access and find the offending switch.
It is probably gummy from a spill and is no longer in solid contact with the cam that operates it.
A solvent/lubricant such as WD-40 sprayed on the plunger of the switch once you can see it and operating the knob back and forth should free it up.
It might be wise to turn off the gas supply while tinkering with the range - blow your house away and the range won't matter. :-(

The ignitor does 2 things. It creates the spark for ignition and it signals the control the burner is lit(flame sensor). If the ignitor and wire are new the spark module is bad. If all spark components have been replaced then I would be searching for a poor ground wire. Are you by any chance using a GFCI circuit? Not recommended and if it worked on this type of circuit you were just plain lucky.

More than likely the spark module has malfunctioned and needs to be replaced.
