I have a Whirlpool Gas Stove with electric ignition that won't light......?

One of my burners won't light. The gas on it works, I can smell it when I turn it on. And I can also see the spark from the ignition, but it just won't light. It's 3 years old. Any ideas on what I can do?

    Sure I see this often. Lift up the grate so the ignite is visible and push it down. If that dont work pull it out and make sure the connection to the wire is tight. last but not least clean the terminal with a knife etc. If all else fails take the one you dont use and replace it with this one. Good luck

    When a little food and grease gets spilled it causes a weak spark. Use any spray cleaner, even windex and use a small brush like a toothbrush and clean around the igniter. It should work after that.
