with a match.
Yes, on burners.
HVAC Technician: Gaztech, HVAC Technician replied 4 months ago

If they light with match the nothing is wrong with gas supply,

is spark nice and blue, if to small then may not be hot enough to ignite gas.

make sure the bottom of burners are secure and properly scewed in and grounded

Establishing burner flame needs

Exact Gas/Air mixture and spark.

One of these 3 essential item is not right

https://www.reliableparts.com/lookup/176115/1278758#diagram

We have all three, Burners lite with lighter so I think gas is not getting to spark Ignitor zone.

Medium burners has a small hole that brings gas to ignitor zone, Check that hole.

Small burner has a slot for gas, Check slot.
