My front burners work fine, but my back burners don't want to lite up. There's good gas flow and I hear the igniter clicking and I see the igniter spark moving all around except straight up to the burner. Thank you.
Answer Hello John,
You will need to check for a good ground around the burner. You see, the spark is electricity looking for ground. If you make sure you have a good ground at the burner, the spark will jump right to the burner and ignite the gas properly. Many times there will be a spill during cooking and this, if it gets between two pieces of metal, it can prevent the two pieces of metal from making good electrical contact and the spark will jump to the next best ground. This is easiest to understand if you think of it as electricity looking for the easiest path to ground.
How do I replace part number 316237805?
Answer Hello Dave. Remove all burner top plates and burners. Place them aside in order of removal. Unscrew the orifice mount 2-screws under each burner. This allows the top to be lifted up and supported by a top prop or a wooden support underneath the top. Then unscrew the ignitor assy. part # 316237805 from the burner valve/manifold and replace it.
