Question about Kenmore 30 in. 42701 / 42702 / 42709 Electric Cooktop
We installed a 30" Kenmore Elite Stainless gas cooktop. When we first turned in on all burners lit normal. Second and all subsequent attempts result in all burners lighting normal except the large right front burner. The ignitor is sparking and gas is coming out of burner but burner is not lighting. Gas supply is plenty adequate, it just seams that gas is not coming in contact with the ignitor spark. Any help would be appreciated.
There are a series of holes in the burner leading down from the main flame area to the pilot tube, ensure the holes are not plugged/restricted.
