Hello: Tuan

If the source is a sparking ignitor, the sparker may be dirty or defective. If the ignitor is a pilot flame, the flame may be out. Also possible the ignition ports are plugged up.

The ignition ports will be located on the side of the burner. Cleaning all the ports is required to allow burner ignition.

In some cases, the entire burner has to be removed to complete this task successfully.
