My propane ran out. I refilled it. I tried to turn the burners on. They all lit. I turned them all off. The ignitors continued to fire at all of the burners. I believe the oven ignitor was also firing. Can you tell me if I need to replace the spark module and if so how would i go about finding it.

Your range has a small 3"x1"x1" metal box with a gas valve going into it placed right behind the broiler flame tube; this gas safety valve alows the gas to enter the "pilot" tube to be lit by an piezio electric ignitor: that is the clicking you hear when you try to operate the oven. this gas valve needs to be replaced as, it is not opening to feed gas to the ignitor. an appliance parts store will have the oven gas valve; it just screws into place. be sure to turn off the gas and, remove power to the range before you do any work on it.
The most common problem for gas surface burners is that they get gas but don't light. This is generally caused by dirt or grease splatters on the burner itself. Residential-grade range/stove burners are round and have small holes around their perimeter to allow gas to flow out and create a round flame. The gas coming from these holes is often ignited by a small vertical row of holes on the side of the burner. If these vertical holes are clogged or obstructed, the gas can't ignite.
The solution is to clean the burners thoroughly. Use a toothpick to clear the small vertical holes, then allow the burner to dry completely and try lighting it again. If it doesn't light immediately, repeat the procedure
May be the ignitor, replaced mine and it fixed it. A gas company guy told me that is common in Magic Chef ranges.
that could be rigth only if that ignitor is good,,,that ignitor has to glow bright orange,,if its weak,,which it sounds like to me,,the gas will take a long time to ignitor,,or dont ignite and you smell a wee bit of gas,,,onthejob
you need to check the amp draw on the ignitor.. if it is between 3.5 -5.2 amps your gas valve is bad..if not the ignitor is bad..YES theignitor can glow and still be bad due to lack of amp draw to open the valve..check that and let me know
