Though this link discusses a different model number, the mechanics are likely going to be very similar. Keep in mind that an expert will be responding within the next two business days if not sooner and will likely offer you more information and instruction.

Thanks for the question about your range burner not igniting, sorry you are experiencing this malfunction.

There could be a couple things causing this problem; first if the burner has debris on it the electrode will not spark properly and there will be no ignition, check and clean as needed by removing the burner cap. Use a brush and mild cleaner, be sure to dry properly before trying to use.

If cleaning does not help try this quick test; if the burner that is not working is in the back turn the front on to ignite then turn the back one on and see if it ignites(visa-versa if front burner ) If the burner lights the most likely problem is the wiring harness w/ignition switch will need replacing.

If the burner still does not light then the electrode is bad and the burner will need replacing. Here is the link to Sears Parts Direct should you need to order parts; Sears PartsDirect .

If cleaning does not help I strongly recommend calling for service as parts replacement can be trying on this product.
