The left front burner sparked and made a popping noise. It does not heat up anymore. I switched the burner from the right rear to be able to use the front and the rear sparked and popped after putting the burner from the front in the rear. So now the Left front and right rear do not heat up. I replaced the terminal sockets that the burners plug into and made sure the connection was good and there are no bent terminals. I purchased a new burner for the front and installed that as well. I completed everything and plugged in the range and the two burners still do not heat up.
What could be causing the burners to still not heat up after replacing the burner and the socket???

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.
If there is no clicking sound like you hear when you turn on the other burners than I'm going to say that either the electrode is bad or the spark switch, which is what you turn to turn on the burner to begin with. Both parts are cheap so it may be a good maintenance thing to change all of the burners. Make sure you have your model and go to www.repairclinic.com and order both parts, and if you don't need one send it back for a full refund even if you installed it. good luck
If the front left also does not light normally, my best guess would be that the wires for the front left and right rear are crossed and the insulation may have fried. Besides that possibility, I have no clue.
Pull out the bottom drawer and you will find the spark module. I strongly suspect it is weak. Here is a video that shows operation: This one shows the module on the backside but I looke dup yours and it is below in the backside of the bottom drawer. Ok here is what i think The igniters could be dirty and I have a video showing how to check that plus another video to show how to remove those pesky switches on the top burners and spark module operation.
You have a short somewhere between the switch and the burner connector. Probably a wire's insulation has worn away or melted and is allowing the wire to contact the metal housing somewhere. You will see arc marks wherever the short is located. Look carefully where the wire passes through any holes or where sharp turns are encountered.
Your problem is not the igniter itself, but the burner switch that controls the igniter. All the igniters get their power from one spark module that is mounted somewhere in back of the oven. That's why you are able to get all the igniters to spark with only one burner control turned on. This is normal. That is also why you are able to light the burner in question buy turning on another burner. The spark is being provided by a switch that is working. To answer your question: the igniter is removable, but I don't think it's necessary. Cleaning them generally doesn't make them work better. I would check the wiring from the spark module to the burner switch and/or replace the switch. I hope this helps.
