Customer Question
GE profile range....

GE profile range. the central grill burner and 3 of the 4 regular burners won't ignite. I have to use a match.

Contractor's Assistant: Can you guesstimate how old your GE is? And just to clarify, what's the exact model?

Hmm - I don't know. It is in a house I just bought.

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

If I can

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

Ovens ignite fine.

Use sand paper to clean the igniter electrodes and the area of the burner each sparks to. Does the ignition behavior change?
