The igniters started sparking on their own. Two of them are doing it, one more than the other. Do I need to replace them and if so, do they still make them for this gas stove top? I contacted Kitchenaid but they said they couldn't help me because it's 24 years old. Please let me know whatever you can. Thanks, Shirley Cleveland

ANSWER Shirley, You would want to check your spark ignition switches 4168745 to make sure that they are good. To do this you would have the power removed and the gas turned off. Access the switches and check them for continuity on each lead while in the off position. If there is continuity then the switch is bad and needs to be replaced.
