A:

The surface burner ignition system consist of a spark igniter module (key#135), spark electrodes (key#199), micro switch (key#191) and a mechanical operated slide bar (key#169) which is located underneath the manifold cover (key#8). See image below.

Whenever any one of the burner knobs are turned to the light position it causes the slide bar to slide over to strike and close the micro switch. The micro switch when closed completes an electrical circuit to the spark module. It becomes energized and provides a high voltage circuit to the spark electrodes which must be grounded which causes all the electrodes to begin sparking to ground. The spark module could have failed or the micro-switch. It could also be a mechanical issue with the slide bar. You will need to remove the manifold cover (key#8) in order to check the micro switch and slide bar operation. I did confirm that there are no parts available for the surface burner ignition system. It may be time to replace your range or continue lighting the burners manually.
