Magic Chef stovetop ignitors not sparking

I have a gas Magic Chef oven and the stovetop ignitors are not sparking. I am getting gas out of the burner and I am able to light it with a flame wand. The oven starts just fine. The digital display works. I just received the stove today from my sister and do not know where to start. The stove itself is about 8yrs old ,was only in use for 1yr and is in great shape except for this problem. Any help would be appreciated.

Hello dugc. Welcome to my Gas Appliances topic and the Do-It-Yourself Web Site.

Very possible if all the sparkers fail to work, the spark module is defective or there may be fuse along side the module under it's protective cover. Be sure the electrical power to the appliance is turned off or plug removed from wall outlet before looking or attempt to remove any fuse found or the module.

Retail parts dealers and appliances parts stores can also help determine what the possible problem may be based upon that specific brand and model. Bring the make, model and serial numbers. Dealers and appliances parts stores are listed in the phone book.
