Hello. Thank you for choosing Just Answer. I will be helping you with your question today. Have you tried cleaning the burner cap good. Making sure none of the holes are clogged.

Yes.

If you use a match will it light on high?
Customer: replied 6 years ago.
I will try.
Customer: replied 6 years ago.
No -- the match makes no difference.
Expert:  Appliance Man replied 6 years ago.
Ok it sounds like you have a bad gas valve. I would recoomend calling a tech to replace the valve so he can check for a gas leak when he is done.

OK, thanks.
