Stove burners dont light up all the time any longer. When

Resolved Question:

Stove burners don't light up all the time any longer. When we turn the burner on, put the burner on lite setting we hear the ignitor click, but the burners flame doesn't come on. Then we use a lighter to ignite the burner & flame comes on. This is happening to all 4 burners. After we use a cigarette lighter & the flame is on for a while, we turn the flame off & use the ignitor on the stove, the burners turns flame on. However, say if we try to turn the flame on next day, same thing happens, the burner can't start flame with the stove's ignitor.

Sorry I dont have the model #, I will try to get it tomorrow.

Ok first try cleaning the electrodes with a wire brush if you are seeing the spark but the flame is not igniting, Clean around the electrodes and on the burner opposite where the spark jumps to. If this does not cure the problem then you have a bad spark module.

may i please ask where the electrodes are and whatvthey are?

Expert:  Mike replied 1 year ago.
Sure the electrodes are where the spark comes from, sometimes you will need to pull the burner cap off to see them.

2 burners are now working. I hear the spark, but they don't light up automatically. I see only a metal stick sticking out from under the burner where the spark is coming from. Seems like the burns are sealed, so I can't lift the burners. Please let me know how can clean the electrodes to get the other 2 burners working. Thank you

Customer: replied 1 year ago.

I was wondering if you had a chance to think about how I can fix this problem? Thank you

Expert:  Mike replied 1 year ago.

Ok sorry I let this question slip past me, You should be able to clean the electrode without removing the burner.
