Hi.
Remove the burner and clean it well, clean the spark ignitor (make sure that ceramic part of it is not cracked).
Using the needle or the thin wire clean the orifice inside the burner's opening.

Thank you. Post the results.

Simon.

Hi.
Can you see the spark at the ignitor?
Check if you can light the burner with match.
If the burner lights locate the spark module inside the control panel, trace the wire to the one in question and switch it around with the good one.
The problem could be the module or the hi voltage wire to the ignitor.

The spark module Part number: WB13K10019

Part number: WB13K10019


The hi voltage harnessPart number: WB18K10037

Part number:  WB18K10037


Thank you. Post the results.

Simon.
