I have a G.E. Profile...
I have a G.E. Profile cooktop model #JGP933. The upper two burners do not consistantly light. They often have to be lit by a match. The lower two burners always light using the electric spark igniter. What might be the problem with the upper two burners?

When I turn on the top two burners I hear the sound of the spark igniter, but usually the burner doesn't light.

Appliance Technician: esequiel walker, Home Appliance Technician replied 8 years ago

The burner cap is in proper position. I don't see the sparking on any of the burners. I hear the spark igniter working when any of the burners is turned on, however only the front two burners consistantly turn on. The back two burners will turn on about on third of the time without having to use a match.
Appliance Technician: esequiel walker, Home Appliance Technician replied 8 years ago
hi ok check the holes where the gas enters the burner normally you will see a little flame along side of the burners when on . when you turn on the burner that wont ignite is the sparker sparking or not
