Gas Cooktop cannot start

My Wirlpool Gas cooktop cannot start by itself. When I turn the knob, there is no clicking sound and no sparks. I have to use match to light it on every time. I think the ignitor is bad.
Is this easy to be fixed by myself? or I have to call a specialist?
Thanks SZ

Yes, the power receptacle has power of 120V, and I don't think the cable to the cooktop has any problem. However, I don't know how to open the cooktop box to check it inside. It seems there is no way to open it from top. I checked from the under cabinet and could not see any screws. I guess I have to get the cooktop out off the counter and open it somehow.
What is the correct way to open it to check the ignitor?
thanks SZ

Sorry I have to ask...Is it plugged in and does the receptacle have power? If so here is a link to an online resource. http://fixitnow.com/wp/2004/09/17/appliance-repair-revelation-troubleshooting-gas-stove-burner-ignition-problems /
