My stove/oven won't light

I have a Peerless Premier SLC240W oven. It is gas with an electronic ignition. All four of the burners and the oven have all stopped lighting. There is no clicking sound at all. They will all light with a match, so I know they are getting gas. Why does it no longer light itself? It is only 9 years old. What is wrong with it? Can I fix it myself? I appreciate any help you can give me.

Hello gg101. Welcome to the Gas Appliances topic.

Most likely possible cause is a burned out spark module. Some models use a separate spark module for the top burners and another spark module for the oven burner.

Most ovens use a hot surface (glow) igniter (HSI) to light the oven. Some ovens use a spark igniter. If your oven uses a spark igniter and it also does not work, check for electrical power to the entire appliance first.

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.

Cautionary Reminder Note:
Before attempting any repairs, be sure to unplug the appliance from the wall receptacle power source first.
