My right front burner will not light. I can hear the clicks and smell gas but don't see an arc coming out to light. Do I need a new burner or igniter.
ANSWER Hi Ann. Very common of after a cleaning or a few cleanings the burner gas ports will get clogged. Look carefully at them with a flashlight and use a straight pin to clear them out. Clean the area where the burner cap properly aligns correctly on the burner itself. It needs a proper ground path for the igniter to lite. Clean underneath the cap where the burner spark travels to. If all of the other burners are sparking then you commonly need to replace a shorted or open Top burner electrode. Item Number: 189324. If it does spark , then also make sure the burner venturi is not clogged. Thank You.
