Why is my middle burner only igniting with half the flame?

Contractor's Assistant: I'll do all I can to help. How long have you been dealing with this?

My middle burner on the range top is only lighting up on one side

Contractor's Assistant: Do you plan on doing the work yourself?

Yes

Contractor's Assistant: Anything else we should know to help you best?

Sometimes it happens to the rest of the burners but not often

check the small holes in the burner body if they are restricted with food debris then gas will not come out of those holes .

A use a tip cleaner but a paper clip will work also .
