Jenn-Air gas cooktop

We have just purchased a home that has a Jenn-Air 4 burner gas cooktop. There is also a grill kit for the left side. The front right burner ignites perfectly. The other 3 burners do not click or lite and the back left burner knob will not turn at all.

Sounds like a good cleaning of the burners and the electrodes might be in order---

As to the knob that's bad--call an appliance parts supplier and see if the part is available---

If the unit is old and tired you may need to replace it soon---Mike---

If you plan on keeping this cooktop and have no skills on gas i would have a local servicer fix it. you need, at a minimum, a new valve for that stuck burner. don't think repair will be $ crazy and it will then be fixed and safe. call around with model & serial #'s. should be able to ballpark it for you.
