I have a GE JGP960 gas cooktop. When I turn the burners on, I get plenty of spark from the electrodes, but it takes 45 sec. to 1 minute to light the burner. I tried lighting the burner with a match, but it still takes a while to light. I am thinking it has something to do with gas delivery system. Could this be a pressure regulator problem, or something else?JA: Can you guesstimate how old your GE is? And just to clarify, what's the exact model?Customer: 16 years old. Model GE JGP960JA: Do you plan on doing the work yourself?Customer: YesJA: Anything else we should know to help you best?Customer: The unit is in pretty good shape. It's just my wife and I and we don't use it a lot.

I have a 12 year old Jenn-Air natural gas cooktop (Model

I have a 12 year old Jenn-Air natural gas cooktop (Model JGD8130ADS https://jennair.com/appliances/details/JGD8130ADS) that I'm having two problems with.Problem 1) The left rear burner is not receiving any gas. The igniter sparks and the burner does not light. Unlike the other functioning burners, you cannot hear the flow of gas when attempting to light the burner. I've swapped the two burner cartridges and have the same problem -- the left rear igniter sparks and the burner does not light. This leads me to believe that there is no gas getting to the cartridge itself. How do I troubleshoot and repair the internal gas line? Or is something else going on here?Problem 2) The front burner on one of the cartridges has a very uneven flame. When on high, the flame is approximately 2" above the top of the burner. The tall flame appears at the large opening in the burner (other burners also have this hole, but no flame appears here). Additionally there is a "windy" noise when the burner is on high and flame does not burn from the other smaller openings -- a very unbalance flame. This problem is specific to this burner; the problem appears regardless of which side of the cook top the cartridge is installed in.
