Hello, and thank you for using this service. I'll be helping you with your problem today.

Try to clean the spark tip to make sure it can jump the spark easily. Just use emery cloth or sand paper and shine up the surface of the igniter tip. If it still won't spark, then it sounds like your spark module is faulty and the spark module will need to be ordered and replaced to fix teh issue.

Hi, we had already tried cleaning the spark tip before that does not help.

 

So your response will be really helpful, if can you help me understand where the spark module is located, how to access / retrieve it and where can I buy a replacement. Can you send a picture as well?
