A:

The most likely cause I can think of is the ignitor was somehow damaged when the skirt was replaced. Look closely at the ignitor to see if it is arcing to the burner cap.

If the ignitor is cracked or out of position it will arc to the mount or to the burner. To ignite the flame properly the ignitor needs to spark up to the burner cap.

A:

You can place the cook top burner grates in the oven to clean them using the self-clean cycle. I recommend that you place them on the outside areas of an oven rack. Position the oven rack in the second to the top position in the oven. You can leave both of the oven racks in the oven cavity for the self-clean cycle but keep in mind that they may discolor slightly. The self clean cycle should not affect the cook top grates. That cycle will burn off any deposits on the grates to a fine ash that can be wiped off.

The link for a previous answer that James R. provided in the above response may also help you clean the grates. I also recommend using a product called Bar Keepers Friend if necessary for stubborn spots.

If you need more help, reply with additional details and we will assist you further.
