On the right side lighting the front burner worked perfectly how ever trying the rear burner nothing... the igniter for the front one sparks ... same with left reveresed.... I am guessing some wiring issues?

Repairman1981 :

Nope it's a dirty ignitor

Repairman1981 :

They all spark when any one sparks, if you have no spark then the module is fine, you just have a dirty or cracked ignitor

Repairman1981 :

You need to clean it , then if it still won't light you need to replace the porcelain ignitor

Repairman1981 :

Most likely the ignitor is cracked if you bought it and it's used ... usually everyone cleans before they sell

JACUSTOMER-xwgktqju- :

JACUSTOMER-xwgktqju- :

JACUSTOMER-xwgktqju- :

Repairman1981 :

Repairman1981 :

sorry was in another window

Repairman1981 :

you need to polish the tip with a fingernail file

Repairman1981 :

Like I said though ... if it looks good and clean I wouldn't count on the cleaning thing working

Repairman1981 :

Did you have any luck with it?

Repairman1981 :

Repairman1981 :

Repairman1981 :

If not then I'm about to head off to bed.

Repairman1981 :
