The two right burners are slow to ignite. The customer reports that she hears it "clicking" and it eventually lights, but it takes awhile. She does not smell gas and when it ignites, it ignites normally. Will new igniters likely fix this problem?

I would clean the affected burners first, make sure all the holes are clean and free of sulphur residue. a paper clip or dental implement from Walgreens works in a pinch. you can also clean up the electrode tips with an igniton file and make sure that the burner itself is making a good ground connection to the chassis of the stove. If the customer is right handed, the burners on the right side of the stove get used more, hence more opportunities to spill over onto the burner.This will explain to the customer why it is only on the right side.
Once you have ruled out the simple stuff, cracked electrodes etc., you could consider throwing a new ignition module at it, but its probably a pricey part, especially if flame rectification is involved.
Check out the burners and get back to us! good luck!

Look for a spark at the burner. A common problem with these ranges is the spark will be jumping from the bottom of the ignitor, under the main top. If its sparking there the burner will not light. There is a rubber boot on the bottom of the ignitor covering the wire connection and they will crack or get dirty giving the spark a trail to jump too.

The problem the customer is experiencing is not as descibed above. The burners are lighting properly; however, when you turn on either of the far right burners, not only does the ignitor for that burner come on, but the ignitors for the other far right burner and the center rear burner also come on. The ignitor for the front right burner does not cut off even after the burner lights. The clicking noise is driving the lady of the house crazy. The other burners/ignitors all work normally and have no effect on the three that are malfunctioning. I would think this problem is a result of some problem with the spark module, but I have never encountered this problem before. I did take the burners apart and check for proper assembly and I found no problems. I also cleaned the burner/ignitors but to no avail. If anyone has any suggestions, I would love to hear them.

Check the ignitor wire for that burner all the way back to the spark mudule to see if there is a bad connection somewhere or if its grease soaked some place where its laying on a ground. If all that looks good I'd replace the spark module. I might order the wire for that burner and replace it along with the spark module just to cover everything.
