My kitchen stove has spark ignitors that when you turn a burner on the spark ignites the burner. Now it does not work on any of the burners. ant ideas PLEASE

Do you see any sparks or does it still make that "click click click" sound...

Is everything seated properly? I sometimes don't seat the cap properly when I clean my range.

The spark is usually created with a coil and capacitor that discharges a high voltage low amperage spark... if you're not hearing or seeing any spark, this may be the mechnism that is broken...

Is it plugged in? Maybe a tripped breaker? Any other electric/electronic components in this stove (i.e. clock, light, etc?) and are those working?

Check all of your ground points. You must have a good ground for the ignitors to work.
