There is an electrode which is similar to a spark plug that lights each burner. When you turn on a burner, all the electrodes will spark at the same time. Is the burner you are having problems with, sparking?

Customer reply replied 7 months ago
it is. At least there is the sound of spark while trying to light it.
Appliance Technician: ApplianceTech, Appliance Technician replied 7 months ago

if three of the four electrodes are sparking, then the one that is not, is probably cracked. Like a spark plug with a crack , the electric pulse will get diverted before it gets to the burner. You will need to replace the electrode.
