They have a thermal overload resistor in the burner itself and they have a propensity to burn out, or it could be the infinite switch. You will have to check resistance across the leads that correspond to each pinout. You can find this out by backtracing the wire to each terminal on the block. Replacement of either part is the only option, there are no safe alternatives to repair them. Hope this helps. BTW, you can go here for parts.

Do not use the stove until its properly converted back to natural gas. It's a serious carbon monoxide hazard.
Most ppl throw the orifices away, sometimes they are stored under the stovetop in the back, or behind it. The original natural gas orifices are the only parts you need. All orifices are labeled by a tiny stamp on the side. It will state the size and type, example: 10 LP.....meaning number 10 size and propane.
A nature gas should be labeled something like 12 NG.
Call a local parts dealer or order online the NG orifices for you model number.
I assume you do not have the setup instrctions that come new with the unit. Heres what you need to do:
1) Change the orifies to NG (the bigger the burner the higher the size number) so if you have two #10 size, one #12 and one #14...then common sence will tell you where they go.
2) convert the regulator. This is the part to which the inlet connects. Remove the vent cap,(a plastic cap, you'll see it) unscrew and flip the insert over and reinsert it (You'll usually see 'NAT' on one side and 'LP' on the other). Reinstall the cap, and that's done. The word NAT should be facing you where you can read it.
3) Then, find the brass orifice that supplies the bake burner (usually under the range, behind the drawer), and if included, the broil burner (usually inside the oven). These are adjustable, and, like adjustable top burners, are simply 'snugged' down clockwise with a 1/2 inch wrench. You need to screw these back up for natural Gas.
You know when the oven is correct, you should get a nice blue flame on top as well as in the oven. Flames with yellow tips are wrong!

I have the same problem intermittently on my Super Cap 465. After reading the following quote from another site, "There have been cases where radio waves, electronic signals and sometimes something as strange as dimmers in lights have caused some weird problems with some computer panels in stoves like these", I tried turning off lights that might be on the same circuit and wouldn't you know it, the oven igniter circuit worked.
