I have a whirlpool stove model SF387PEYQ4, 1 out of the 4 burners doesn't work. On the 3 that work, there's a spark on the igniter. Does this mean that on the burner that doesn't work, the igniter surface is bad or the switch-ign is bad?

Fernando for Model Number SF387PEYQ4

ANSWER Hello Fernando. Check and make sure the igniter 4371598 is not cracked and it is closed for continuity. If so, you may have a bad spark module 3186576 and it will need to be replaced. You can test this with a multi-meter TJMA-DMT3. Here is a link on how to use a multi-meter. Hope this helps.http://forum.appliancepartspros.com/oven-repair-including-ranges-cooktops/4810-how-check-continuity-ohmmeter.html
