There are 3 possible reasons the ignitor isn't working;

No power to the switches or ignitor

Bad switch

Bad ignition module

The way to determine this is to turn each burner valve on 1 at a time and listen for the ignitor to click. If it clicks then the burner that doesn't click has a bad switch. If none of the burners click, then most likely the problem is a faulty ignition module. This is of course providing you have power to the stove.

Many of the newer stoves have sealed type burners and require a qualified service provider to make repairs to prevent damage to the gas lines and their related controls.
