SOURCE: Gas Range Continuous Spark
On all gas stoves/cooktops, when you switch on one burner to light, all other burner igniters will click at the same time. This is normal. Enjoy your new apartment!
If you need further assistance, let me know

the sparking is one of the switches under the knobs shorted you may be able to open the top and take a switch off 1 at a time and you can figure out what one is shorted.or you can just change all of them.
to stop this you may be able to just unplug the cooktop from under the top.if you unplug the cooktop you should be able to light the burners with a match.

If you're not getting the ignitor sparking (you should hear it) when you turn the burner knob on for that burner, it could be that either the ignitor is dirty or caked with some gunk and needs to be cleaned.
The other issue could be that the ignitor is faulty and needs to be replaced. If you want to confirm a faulty ignitor before ordering a new one, you can swap it out with one of the other ignitors on the cook top. Be sure to unplug the cook top from the outlet thou, to prevent getting a shock, as those little sparkers can give you a pretty good jolt!
Just remove the grates and burners to get at the ignitor for cleaning it. To get at the ignitor, youll need to go under the cabinet or counter that the cooktop is installed on in order to remove the ignitor and swap it with one of the other ones. You'll see that these are held in place with a retaining clip you can remove with a flat bladed screwdriver, etc.
If you find that the one that isn't working is faulty, you can order one from your local appliance service store, or get one online. www.searspartsdirect.com lists parts for almost every appliance there is, just enter in the full model number to get a parts list, etc.
Hope you find this Very Helpful and best regards!

Testimonial: "I was able to confirm that the igniter was not dirty. It looks like I'll have to pull the oven out to access the underside of the cooktop to complete."

I agree with two of the reviews here. Every so often after a good cleaning, or most recently after some oil spilled over, I had a burner that wouldn't light. All of them clicked, but the one I wanted didn't light. So after reading the above posts, I unscrew the hex nut, removed the shimmer ring, and cleaned it, and mopped up a bunch of oil under where the ring sits. Put everything back together and lit it manually. After 30 secs of flame I shut it down and tried to light it automatically. It worked! Looks like, thanks to some folks here, that I saved myself an annoying phone call and possible repair bill!

We just had that problem - the igniter is electric - if none of the burners are "clicking" it could be a power problem. unplug the stove and check whether the outlet is working. In our case, the outlet the stove is plugged into has a "GFI outlet with a reset button. So we reset the outlet and that fixed the problem.
