the iginiter being loose can ba a problem. when they are loose these can spark but not correctly. they will jump the spark in a different spot which doesnt go towards the gas flow correctly, check that first. let me know thanks Bryan

I have resecured igniter on bottom right and it works fine now. That was my easy problem .I need to know what is likely the cause and fix for the bottom left burner that gets no gas flow.

ok the feeder holes for the bas to the burner may be clogged. , are you able to light the burner with a match? there are little pin holes in the burner take a needlt and poke the out nice and clean. just stick the pin through the holes and make sure ther clear. the gas follows these holes to the main part of the burner.

ok you may have a bad gas burner valve then. I believe this is it. Part(NNN) NNN-NNNN width=I'll do some further checking. thanks Bryan
Expert:  Bryan replied 8 years ago.
some of these parts are no longer available. what I would do is take a look at the burner valve in question and see if you can get a part # XXXXX of it. if you cant do this you may want to call for service on this. well wishes and thanks Bryan
