Hello, my name is XXXXX XXXXX I am here to assist you. Okay so you are talking the burners on top are not lighting? Does to oven light up okay?

Yes that is right, the oven lights up fine. It is the burners on the top not lighting, just the smell of gas.

Okay, your problem is the spark module. This is what creates the spark to light the burners. You need to replace the module to correct your problem. Now you can light the burners manually by turning them on like normal and using a match or lighter to light them in the mean time. I am sending you a link to a diagram and the spark module is #11 on the diagram. Hope this helps and thank you for your time and patience, Randy.
