Question GE gas stove only work one side of time?

I have a GE gas stove. It is only work at left side ( When I face it), when I turn four knobs, it is always sparks on the left side, not on right side; I located the sparks module on the back of unit (Model # 26347041), I disconnected one wire (try to find out if it is the wire connection for the spark), funny thing happened== sparks on the left is not working now, RIGHT side spark now is working with all knobs. I plug the wire back in, the problem resumed==left is working not right side; same happened when I unplug the second wire. I make me puzzled.
I do not know If I should try to replace the whole spark module.

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

Based upon the brief problem description, only possible cause I can think of is a loss of electrical connection within the circuitry.

You'll have to disconnect the appliance from the electrical power and do a continuity test from the spark module to each sparker switch located on top of each gas valve.

Then test each switch for continuity. The idea here is to attempt to locate where the electrical connection might be lost. Likely through one of the switches on top of one of the valve stems.

Retail appliance parts dealers can also help determine what the possible problem may be also. They will need the make, model an serial numbers. Appliance parts dealers are an excellent source for original replacement parts. Dealers are listed in the phone book under appliances.

"Be sure the electrical power and the gas supply to the appliance is turned off, before attempting any repairs. Always check for gas leaks whenever the appliance is moved and/or a repair includes any connection of a gas part."
