If one or more of the surface burners will not ignite or is difficult to ignite:

  1. Turn off power to the unit.
  2. Inspect the arc gap area at the burner for any debris or similar items which might be blocking the arc gap.
  3. Remove the debris and apply power to the unit.


Also check the burners and the burner caps to make sure they are seated properly. Finally check the power to the unit, when the selector is in the ignite position you should here a sparking sound.
