Thanks for counting on us to help with your appliance problem. My name is ***** ***** I look forward to helping you! The issue is likely with the path from the igniters to ground. Use sand paper to clean the igniter tip and the area it sparks to and see if it makes any change to the sparking. Let me know what happens.
