Question Seamark Stove problem

Our 03 Itasca has a Seamark 2 burner glass top LP cooktop. The burner to the cook's left ignites just fine but the one to the right doesn't. I can hear the spark trying to set it off but nothing not even the smell of gas. Any suggestions? We had the tank topped off recently and the propane guy suggested replacing the stove....there is a lot of rust underneath the cooktop. Thank you.

Don't let your propane guy do the repairs!

Have you tried lighting the burner using a BBQ Lighter....see if it actually will light off?

Have you cleaned the burner...
Spark has to 'cut across' the gas to ignite it.
If spark is jumping below the Burner Ports clean the Electrode so that the spark will jump above the ports

Burner diffuser cap spreads the flame (sits on top of Burner)
Burner base directs gas flow thru the different ports

***IF after cleaning up burner/electrode and still not lighting off via sparker OR BBQ Lighter then need to remove stove top, remove burner tube and check if burner valve/orifice is working

OK, so the burner on the right does not even sound like its getting gas, is this correct?
If so pop the cover open on the stove top, usually (I think) push back on the top, while pushing up.
Oh you will need to purchase a BBQ grill pipe cleaner or something similar.
With the eyes off run the cleaner thru the tubes for the burner, you may have a nest of some sort in there stopping gas flow.

Here are some other things you can do.
Also listen try listening very closely to determine if there is flow to that burner.

Do you smell gas when you turn it on? If so attempt to light with a match or lighter. If that works then check the igniter to see if that one is actually sparking. It could be bad or need adjusting.

Just a few things to check, good luck and keep us informed.
