In washing the stove top, I may have gotten too much soapy water around this burner. The other burners work fine. We have tried to turn it on over a few days, hoping that it just needed to dry out, but it still doesn't work. What do we need to do to fix this?

Re: igniter of back burner dies not click or light
I had the same issue with washing the top with water and cleaning solution. I had arching, eventually one burner failed to ignite. I tried the above solution and it did not work. Remove the ceramic top on the burner that will not ignite. Turn on another working element. Do you see the igniter working?
If so slowly turn on the gas on the failed burner and it will ignite. I'm looking into what component automatically controls the igniting and gas release when the knob is turned on.

Here is an easy fix if you hear the ignitor "clicking" but not lighting the burner. For more information, go to ...
Pull the burner caps, etc off the stove and completely dry the area ..Be sure to inspect each ignitor contact for cleanliness as well. If the ignitors have soapy buildup or water, around them, they can act like this. You should be able to pull the burner caps and flame diffusers off and clean with a paper towel, and if needed, a light scouring sponge. Be careful not to scratch the surfaces, but scour the top of the ignitors carefully if you need to clean them.
FIRST MAKE SURE YOU TURN OFF THE GAS AT THE MAINS , THEN REMOVE THE ALL BUNERS AND GIVE THE TOP PORTION A GOOD CLEAN WITH WARM SOAPY WATER TO EXPOSE THE SCREWS WHEN LOCATED REMOVE THEM AND THE TOP THEN YOU NEED TO FIND THE IGNITE WIRE FOLLOW IT TO ITS SOURCE CHECKING FOR ANY BREAKS AND ALSO CHECK CONNECTIONS . GOOD LUCK .
On stove top burners that have sparklers that are not visible at the burner head, the burner heads have ignition ports. If the sparklers are functioning and the burners won't lite, chances are the ignition ports are clogged or restricted.
Ignition ports are tiny holes up one side of the burner head. If these holes are restricted, they must be cleared out. Cleaning can be accomplished using one of three methods.
Most commonly, a large sewing straight pin needle can be used. DO NOT enlarge the ignition holes. Doing so will have adverse burner lighting effects.
Burner heads where the flames will not burn completely around the entire circumference of the burner head, the holes which do not have flames are clogged up and need cleaning.
In cases of extremely dirty burner heads, soaking the burners in very hot water with plenty of dissolved automatic dishwasher detergent for several hours, rinsing and drying or a combination of both methods for heavily soiled burners.
hope this helps u
thank u for using fixya

I take it the range is electric ignition because you say the top burners have a clicking(igniter) noise. If the top burners are electric ignition then the oven is also. The oven probably uses a hot surface igniter and that is why you do not hear any clicking. Turn the oven on and open the broiler compartment. You should see a bright glow from the hot surface igniter. If you do not see any glow there may be a grounding issue or the igniter could be bad. If you do see a glow but the burner does not come on in a few minutes then give the gas valve a tap with a wrench and see if the burner comes on. Shut it off and then back on several times. If the burner continues to light after this you may have fixed the problem. If it does not come on gas valve could be sticking or igniter is weak.
Susan, there is no pilot flame on the Spectra models of ranges. However, the possibility that the electronic ignitors have gotten soaked and are shorting out is quite likely.
You should disconnect the power to the oven and remove the burner grates, burner caps, and the burner assembly cores to expose the ignitor posts. Check to see if there is any remaining water there and clean off and dry the ignitors and burners completely, as they might have something on them causing them to short out against the stove top, rather than spark properly, as they should.
Once you've cleaned and replaced the stove top parts, restore power and try to light each burner, one at a time. If none of them spark or light, then you need to check to make sure you haven't tripped a breaker for the stove or a GFCI outlet that the outlet that the stove might be plugged into, somewhere in the Kitchen.
