Consul refrigerator has spark & gas but won't light

I have a small (about 8 cu ft) consul refrigerator which works just fine once going, but has to be manually lit with a match. The ignitor works and the gas is there (because it lights with a match). It will light about once out of 100 tries.

Any thoughts?

    The spark gap is right, but I'll have the gas company check the pressure when they come by to do a delivery and fix another issue. Thanks for your response. I appreciate it.

Test the Lp pressure to see that it is 11 1/2 water column inches. If it is then make sure that the electrode has about 1/4 inch to 3/8 inch gap and that it is sparking good. You can physically watch this. Once you have both in proper working order this should light for you and work. I hope this helps.

Consul 3-way fridge. hasn't been going for a couple of years. Gas is getting thru and it ignites with a whoosh of flame but doesn't maintain ignition. Can you help?

First verify the fridge works on AC/DC prior to repairing the gas feature. If it is not working on AC/DC it may not be worth repairing. (works on convection and the fluid may have boiled, evaporated or become a solid) The most likely cause of the flame not remaining lit is a faulty or dirty thremo couple. This unit verify' the pilot is lit and maintains fuel to the pilot. In a case where the pilot blows out it stops the flow of gas. If it is dirty or worn out it will not allow the pilot to remain lit. It is likely a steel looking "rod" within the flame path of the pilot light. Try cleaning with a scotch brite pad.

Electric start gas range

All burners apark at the same time. If they don't light then electrodes (where the spark jumps off of) are either worn out or cracked or there is dirt in the area of the sparking. Clean thoroughly to diagnose this correctly.
