  3. Do not get the ignitor wet or spray cleaner into the burner ring. Spray cleaner into the cloth.
  4. Rinse with water.
  5. Dry with a towel.
  6. Blow out the holes to remove excess detergent or degreaser.
  7. Clean burner port holes with a dry toothbrush or use a toothpick or paper clip to remove debris.
