Front left burner does not burn. Ignitor makes ticking noise, but fire seems to go away from the burner. Tried to clean the burner, worked for few times,but, problem came back. What seems to be the problem. Other three are working fine. How to open the ignitor? Thanks in advance.

Kris for Model Number GS445LEMS3

ANSWER Hi. Remove the burner grates. Remove the inner burner mount screws and lay them aside specifically in order with the burner. Use a putty knife to reach into the front sides and release the lt. and rt. clips holding the top down. Use the prop rod to hold the top up that is under the top assy. Release the igniter wire center holding tab and remove the wire from the igniter part # 8523793. Remove the inner burner -igniter mount screw and replace the igniter. After cleaning the burner, make sure all the horizontal holes are cleared with a straight pin. So the drafts will not blow out a weak flame. Make sure the burner caps are all cleaned back off with a small, soft brass wire brush where the igniter spark point is on the bottom side of the cap. The burner is part # 4455981. Make sure the orifice is clear. If they are then replace the burner valve part # 9757218. Thank You.
