Sounds like the problem is a bad ignition switches. You have to remove the cooktop from the counter to access the parts.

- The part number for the ignition switch harness is AP3592411

There may be a problem with the ignition switches on the burner valves or in their wiring. All of the switches come together in an assembly along with their wiring (see the following link).

There are spark electrodes at the burners but if they were defective they should not work when that one burner was turned on either. There is a spark module but only one so it shouldn't be the problem if even one burner worked reliably. That leaves the ignition switches for those 4 burners not powering the spark module either due to their failure of failure of their wiring.
