If pilot lights but the burners will not, the most likely issue is the gas valve has failed and will need to be replaced.See link.

https://www.stove-parts-unlimited.com/eurosit-manually-reg-valve-ng-for-enviro-828-gas-stoves-828-004-p/828-004.htm?utm_medium=googleshopping&utm_source=bc&gclid=EAIaIQobChMI4JC8r_jA1wIVjP5kCh1iXAgFEAYYASABEgJrfPD_BwE

If you are mechanically inclined or know someone who could replace it for you, the valve is less than 200 dollars.

However it will be almost impossible to get someone to come out to your home to do so and if you do find someone, they will want to charge about 300 for the valve and three to four hours labor, so not real practical.
