Wrong burner sparking/ no spark rear left and center

Hello everyone and thank you for listening to me. I have a Kenmore stove/oven model number 790 72909015. It has four burners and a center burner. The right side works fine. The left front ignites properly. When I turn on the left rear to light I hear clicking and see sparking in the left front and nothing in the left rear. I can like that one with a match. When I try to light the center I get the same situation I see sparking I hear clicking in the left front! I do not see a spark at the center burner. Again I could like that burner with the match. Thank you in advance for advice. I hope everyone is safe!

Welcome to the forums.

When any gas valve is turned on..... all burners spark at the same time.
The spark module has individual outputs to each burner but your problem sounds like it's at the igniter. In the picture the arrow is pointing to the igniter. That needs to be clean so that the spark doesn't arc across it but from it to the burner.
