Customer Question

Igniter on right front burner does not ignite when the control knob is turned. The igniter sparks when other burner knobs are turned. I suspect a short in the wiring or a problem with the the switch in the knob. Is this a common problem and can if fix it? Model MGC5430 BDB. Serial 1111 3505 EG. Jim Spaulding email***@******.***
