My surface ignitor is sparking, but burner will not ignite. This is my first gas range and I am not sure of possible problems? Any suggestions?

John Tempo for Model Number 665.75022100

ANSWER John, Try this, Remove the burner cap and look down inside the orifice tube, at the bottom you'll see a brass colored fitting, the hole in the center has got to be open, you may want to take a long needle or pin and check to make sure the orifice is clear. Make sure all the venturi slots on the burner base are clear and the spark igniter has a bright white spark and "hits" in the same location. If all is OK, suspect a clogged or damaged burner valve. Good Luck and Thanks
