Hi If they are all sparking then what you can try is remove all the pan stands and burners.Make sure its switched off and use a hairdryer and heat all the spark leads and give them a wipe with a dry cloth. As damp spark leads can cause this fault. If after all that its still the same then afraid the spark generator is the issue. For this you need to remove the hob top and there you will see the spark box. You need to swap this over and that will cure it. But try the hairdryer trick first as sometimes this works. But if it doesn't then the spark box will need to be replaced on this. Regards
