My Whirlpool gas range has small igniters in every burner (like pretty much
every gas stove does these days).
When I take the iron cover off the burner, I can see the ignition spark
happening---it just doesn't ignite anything (of course I mean with the cover
back on). It used to work a little if I blew air under the pot, but now it
doesn't work at all.
Where's the body buried here? Are the igniters not firing off enough
current, or is the gas venturing through the chisel marks in the burner
The one that has failed is the one that I almost always use....so usage is
playing a part here. But a spark *is*
happening. Perhaps not enough of
one? I tried cleaning the ignition point itself with no luck.
