usually due to the ignition unit being faulty. being miele, the part will be pricey. another solution is to take out the ignition unit and take it into a local electrical repair outfit and see if it can be matched up with one from a different make. to check if this is the problem, interchange two electrode leads on the ignition unit and see if fault changers to another burner. you sometimes find that there is a spare ignition outlet on the ignition unit and this can be used as an alternative

This coulb be either the switch or the burner. Either can be tested with an ohmmeter if you can read the wiring diagram. Hope this helps!

There are three parts to the ignition system typically.
The ignitor that is either in the burner or outside the burner.
The spark ignitor switch that is located on the burner control. (( one for each control ))
The spark modual. the modual creates the hi-voltage spark.
If the burner that does not ignight with its control does not spark but does spark with one of the other controls then the spark ignitor control switch is bad.
You can test it with one of the other burner control knobs. (( just try a working burnder and when it clicks look at the bad burners ignitor and look for the spark.))
If the bad burner that wont ignight does not spark then either your modual is bas or the ignitor is shorting out.
If you see any little spark but it does not spark from point A to Point B like the other burners then your ignitor is shorting and should be replaced.
If your ignitor is ceramic and it is cracked, then it should be replaced.

Testimonial: "Info was helpful, but did not fully clear problem. Somehow, the bad burner thermocouple is involved."
Does the burner attempt to re-ignite after it goes out? If so, it's probably the therocouple. If not, it could be the burner valve. Be sure the caps and rings are correctly seated on the burners and be sure to firmly press the burner knob down to start the flame.
