There is no fix. This is normal. All 4 ignitors will spark but the gas will only go to the burner where the gas is active.

Get some rust buster and apply it to the valve stem liberally. Work the shaft in and out a bit to loosen the shaft. Let that rust buster sit on there a bit. Good stuff.

Hello, thank you for your post. It sound like your saying the burners are not lighting up. Most of the time this is just a simple fix. Next time you turn on your burner notice were the igniter sparks this part of the burner needed to be cleaned. You should be able to take the burner cap off and the burner use a wire brush to clean the surface area so the spark has good contact. Take notice also of the igniter you will need to change it out if you see any cracks around the ceramic housing.
Happy Holidays! Please rate me "4 thumbs" if this information was useful.

The gas is delivering as you may already saw with gas manifold and pipes going to each burner. In every burner there is one orifice with a tiny hole. So you haven't mentioned what liquid but in any case we advice that you can disassemble first the manifold and clean it very well. You can use a small piece of water hose adapt it on one side and blow air in it and check if it coming from other end. Is the only way where it is cogged.

Here is the link with the parts of your stove.

From your description this problem is simple to understand and easy to fix. The wire harness has a loose contact from the sparking rod to the spark module. At either connection points the connection is loose so it sometimes make contact and sometimes not.

So you need to disassemble the unit by removing burner and the top unit so you will find the wires and spark module under top unit.

Here is the link with all above parts of your unit which will help you.
