Question about Kitchen Ranges
Do you have replacement parts such as burner assembly available? This is approximately the 4th time I have asked this question without an answer yet.
I'm not sure what make or model you have but most of these beasts have a central control unit that feeds the igniters for each burner.
Since none of the burners will light (I assume that there is no spark or a very weak one) the unit sounds like a likely suspect.
Those units are a LOT more expensive than matches.
If it is not too old you might try to get a GE warranty for it (probably $20 a year) Many times they never ask if the thing is working.. wait the 30 days and have it fixed. Ours crapped out several times so the yearly service charge was a deal.... Of course you COULD just cancel it at any time. We did not.
Meanwhile, strike up the matches or keep a spark starter handy.

SOURCE: Replace burner spark ignitor?
Electric igniters are usually very simple installs since they usually only come with a common and hot wire, and the igniter clips on to the burners right near the burner top for ignition. The easiest way a DIYer can do this themselves is to slowly take apart the current ignitor after lifting the top of the range up and taking note of every thing's placement. If you have the direct OEM part, then it either work or will not, based upon the fact that it's either the ignitor or the switch for it that has gone bad.
To test if your igniter has gone bad, remove it completely. (it should only be a small cylinder with two prongs, and two wires coming out the other side) Be sure not to strip any screws as heat from the oven will make them hard to remove. From there, you'll need to jump the connection on the top of the igniter with a conducting piece (ie: aluminum foil or wire), then test the common/hot wires with your circuit tester or volt meter. A solid tone or light means that your igniter is good, and the problem lies somewhere else.

I do not know the cause BUT the fan behavior (on for left burners, off for right burners) is by design. The high-speed fan has two switches; 1) the primary switch visible centered between top two knobs, 2) secondary switches integrated with left burner knobs.

I replaced my led light with one from Radio Shack its a 5mm Blue led part number276-314 it was about $3.00. I connected it with solderless connectors for telephone wires also from Radio Shack. I covered the connections with heat shrink tubing. I fished out the light without taking the face of the stove off. I did all the work outside in the front of the stove. I checked it to make sure I had the polarity right. Then I fished it all back in and used rounded needle nose pliers to put the light back in. It all works like a charm. Im not sure if it will go out again. I did not fix whatever caused it to burn out in the first place but I thought it was worth the cost under $10.00 to try it out. I will post if it fails again.
