Thank you for your question and I understand your concern.

Based on your symptom and details it sounds like the switch located on top of that specific burner valve has come loose from its mounting position. Each burner valve has its own switch sitting on top of each burner valve. Whenever any one burner valve is turned to LITE, it causes all 4 to spark.

It's not likely a failed switch or a failed spark module. You will likely find the switch just loosely laying on top of the burner valve and not closing the contact switch when the burner/stem is turned to the LITE position.

I added an image below with the basic instructions on how to access the burner switches. You will likely have to remove the manifold cover in order to access the switch. You may be able to remove the burner knob and see the switch but I you will likely have to remove the manifold cover to have full access. See image below. NOTE: Disconnect the power cord from the power source before servicing your range.

If you do not feel confident repairing this problem yourself, then you can have it repaired at your home by a Sears technician. Here is a link for the website: Sears Home Services .
