Out of four burners, 2 right ones light fine and 2-3 clicks in. Other two burners have issues- left rear lights after 9-10 clicks if at all and left front clicks but does not light- I have cleaned the burner well, so gas pathway fine. Sometimes when turning the knob on front left there is another kind of weird clicking (maybe at the spark module?) I have brushed the surface of the igniter lightly- doesn't seem to be blocked or anything. Is multimeter use next to determine what is kaput, or take it apart and clean it better since it is sparking just late?
