I have a gas cooktop model AKS3640SS. There is spark and gas, but one burner is much slower to light than the other four. Burner is clean and firing like others; any idea on why and possible solution? Thanks

When it finally lights is there a big poof from a lot of gas? Is the spark on this burner as loud and bright as the others? Is it positioned where it is supposed to be? If not replace the igniter. You can test this out by robbing one of the other igniters and trying it in the problem burners spot.

Also you could pull that burner off the manifold where the burner tube slips over the gas outlet and check for any obstruction, like spilled and dried food, spider web in the oriface. If you get a big poof when it lights this is probably not the problem.

Look for obstructions or a buildup on the spark tip on each burner. I use a tooth pick to clean around them. Let the burner completely dry before trying to light it since water will give a shorter path to ground which will produce a smaller on no spark at the burner.

Clean the wires going to the ignitor of each burner, clean the burners as well. Chances are you have too much oil and dirt on them that is why your burners are not igniting.

One of the burners does not light but it does have a spark at ignitor but it is not directed to burner port


Be certain the openings in the burner are free of debris. Boilovers can leave debris in the openings that will harden. Once this happens you cannot get the right mix of oxygen and gas for a flame to ignite. With the burner OFF, you can clean the openings gently with a toothpick to loosen the cooked on "gook." Then when you turn on the burner, the flame should burn off the residue and your range will be "cooking on all four burners!"

Jenn-Air JGC8536 Gas Cooktop ignitor replacement


One burner doesn't consistently light. Igniter sparks but not the same as the other - "good" burners spark at top of igniter and moves around to light, "bad" burner sparks toward the bottom and doesn't move much. I can use the burner by lighting with a match and it works fine. Have tried cleaning with a toothbrush without much success
