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.

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.

Water leaking out of pump

Unplug the washer. The consul is hinged from the top. Remove the two screws at the base of the consul ( at the front or the back) and pull the consul toward you then flip the consul back. You will find two gold colored spring clips under the consul. Use a screwdriver in the front slots, pop the clips out. Unplug the connector to the lid switch, tilt the cabinet forward and set it to the side.
Remove the two hoses to the pump and the two spring clips that hold the pump on. Your half way there. replace the pump and reassemble the machine. make sure you line up the cabinet. Cost should be about $50.
