This is a 5-burner Magic Chef gas cooktop, about 4-5 years old.
One of the burners won't light electronically. I have always been
carefully about cleaning around the igniter tip, so dunno what went
The Gas Co man happened to be here on another matter,
so I asked him why it wouldn't light. He showed me that the
ceramic sleeve surrounded the igniter was cracked,
so the electricity sought the nearest exit -- through the crack -- and
did not do its job of lighting the burner.
I've been lighting it with a match, but now that he explained
about the ceramic sleeve, am wondering whether you gurus
think it's (a) possible and (b) economically feasible, to
have the sleeve replaced.
