Range electronic ignition causing problems

I would like to resolve an electrical problem an elderly neighbor is having in her small rental apartment which is served by a separate panel containing two 15 amp fuses.

A gas range with electronic ignition and a digital answering machine is connected to one of these circuits. A television set is connected on the other circuit.

When using the gas range, the electronic ignition creates a spark which, in turn, ignites the gas.. this is fine. HOWEVER, these sparks create a loud popping sound on her television and also play havoc with the settings on her answering machine.

Is there an inexpensive device I can place between the wall outlet and the power cord serving the range electronic ignition that would isolate this spark from the rest of her electrical system?

I hope my explaination makes sense.

Thank you.

you might try a surge suppressor strip, like is used for computers.
