Bad switch...typically if one burner is affected.  Otherwise, replace spark module.

The igniter doesn't 'click' anymore. All the burners light fine with a match. It worked fine - no gradual failure but just quit!

This model is now discontinued however parts might still be available , try here Replacement Parts for Appliances
You might be lucky to find an igniter. Good luck

I have a kenmore stove model number 790,72403012 and 3 of the 4 burners are working. They all are getting a spark, but the front left won't fire up.

First, try to light the burner in question with a match. Just hold a match to the burner, then turn the gas on to low. If the burner doesn`t light, the problem is the gas supply to the burner. Next, lift the top cover and put the prop rod in the hole in the cover to support it. Hold a match to the left-front burner. Now, turn the control knob to "light". You should see the igniter spark and hear a snap. If this doesn`t happen, repeat this step with the left rear burner. If you hear the spark and snap.
If the igniter doesn`t work on the front left burner, but does on the rear left burner, the igniter does work. The problem is likely the control knob for the left front burner. The. Control knob includes the electrical switch the activates the igniter when you turn on that burner.

The first thing I would do is clean your battery connections very good. you may have to remove the plastic covers off the cable ends to get them cleaned good. Also make sure you get the connection bolts tight.

Burners won't light automatically. Will light with a match. Flint doesn't spark anymore. Can flints be replaced and by whom?

If none of the igniters are working then it is probably the igniter module which is relatively easy to replace on most makes and models.

Electronic ignition doesn't work anymore. How do I manually light this?

Before you go to match lighting, have you changed the battery in the ignitor button? If you haven't, I'd start there first. Unscrew the ignitor cap and the battery's Positive Tip (+) will be facing you. Be sure to install the new battery in the same direction.While the battery is out, check for any corrosion that may be present in the battery holder. A Q-Tip & WD40 work well to clean out any corrosion.

To match light the burners ... use a long stick match (also called a hearth match) and carefully guide the match between the grates and under the flame tamers, as close to each burner as possible. Of course, the match should be lit prior to doing this. Turn each burner on individually, as you place the lighted match next to it. Once the burner lights, turn it down to low and move to the next burner and so on, until all the burners you want to use are lit. Then set the flame heights where you want them.

Hope this helped you. Please let me know and Happy Grilling!!
