This units front left burner wont light and no gas comes on when you turn switch but electrode does spark. The front right burner will not light every time.....it will spark then stop and gas comes out as you turn switch. Its stops sparking right before gas comes out so you have to catch it right. All other burners and oven work fine. I believe I have two bad potentiometers. On the front left switch I see two wires coming off the potentiometer to a connection at the gas line going to the burner. Please help, Thanks.

Anyone? I think the front left might be the potentiometer as that controls the solenoid from opening valve. And the right front like I said before stops sparking just before gas comes out. Any help would be awesome...

Have you checked the continuity of the gas valve solenoid for the FL burner? I replace a lot of those. Should also check to see if you're getting 24vdc to it. The manual you downloaded has details on isolating and troubleshooting the solenoid vs the reignitor vs the potentiometer.

Ok, so when burner is turned on their should be 24 volts at valve? If not bad potentiometer ? If there is bad solenoid. The other front burner on right won't light everytime. It stops sparking right before it lights. Ty forthehelp btw.
