Finicky Suburban three burner stove top burner lighting issue

Looking for anybody with that make stoves input. One of the burners (right rear) always needs multiple clicks on the ignitor to light that burner. I can visibly see the spark occur on each turn of the ignitor knob, but it has always had a harder time lighting off. Has anybody had luck with "adjusting" the position of the sparking probe to improve the lighting procedure. Sometimes it takes 10 turns, while the other two burners light off after no more than two, yet they all visibly spark on ever turn of the ignitor knob. Thanks

We've had the same problem with our stove. Didn't really think about it until now but will look into it starting tomorrow. Will keep you posted on it.

I check the stove out today and found the flue for the burner wasn't seated tight on the LP inlet. I adjusted the mounting brackets and now they light on the first or sometime second click. I included pic to show what I'm talking about.

I've been using a lighter the few times I cook inside. (I usually cook outside)

This is under the stove top just lift up on the front and you'll see it under it.

Just looking from your picture, looks like your air shutter is too far open. I do this for a living working on commercial ranges. Your flame probably has alot of yellow at the tips . If you have too much air at the shutter, it will be hard to ignite. Closing it off will help . Look at the other burners that are working well and close the shutter the same as the others.

Did you look at both pictures? I made an adjustment and now the stove lights off with no problem. It wasn't lighting before.

Most common fault is for the igniter wires to arc. Turn out the lights and snap igniter a few times and you will see the arcs. Solved mine by running a piece of tape lengthwise on each wire and folding it over wire.

After reading this post I went and investigated my stove, which has been a little finicky to light. The attached photo shows the one on the left after adjustment, the middle one that did not need adjustment and the one on the far right prior to adjustment. It would appear that this adjustment has helped.
