Thank you for your question.

I can understand why you are puzzled as to why the igniters are sparking but the RR burner will not light.

If you can light the burner with a match then I would think it is the igniter on the burner that is having an issue.

No matter which burner you turn on, all the spark igniter spark at the same time.

I would suggest that you remove the burner grate and the burner cap and inspect the burner head for any debris that may have build up on the lighting ports of the burner head.

If you find any soil build please clean with a small brush.

Also examine the igniter to see if it is sparking in the right direction or at all.

To test this remove the burner cap on the RR burner and turn the LR burner on to the light position to see if the igniter is working on the RR burner igniter.

If there is no sparking at the burner then the igniter has failed and will need to be replaced.

I hope this information was of some help. If you need more help please reply and I will be glad to help you further.

Thank you for using Manage My Life.
