Two igniters not sparking on Maytag CRG9800BAE stove top

I have a maytap CRG9800BAE oven. I am having trouble with two of the sealed burners on the stovetop. The back left and front right ignitors do not spark and therefore will not light unless I light them with a flame. All of the control knobs cause the clicking sound and sparking on the two working burners. Every now and then the nonworking burners will spark, but not consistently.

I have attempted to clean the sparking mechanism to see if they were just dirty and that did not help the problem at all. The gas port is not clogged either.

Does the sealed burner need to be replaced in this circumstance or is there something else I can try?

Thanks!

Would seem to be a defective ignitor.
To be sure you should be able to go to spark module and by moving the four remote spark lines.
Just move wires to different terminals. Problem should move to different burners.

The top link is part plus location info.
The second link is just a lower price.

Thanks. I switched the wires and now the problem is reversed. I'll go ahead and order a new spark module and get this stove working right again. I appreciate the advice.
