    Two burners pilot lights on my GE profile cook top do not light after cleaning. At the time it was only about two years old. What has to be done at this point? Any ideas on how to fix without spending a fortune on getting fixed? One "handyman" said it would cost 275.00 to fix. That I would have to place all four burners. Yikes.

This cook top uses an electric ignitor and does not need to be lit.

Pilot light lights but burners wont light

If this is a stovetop, there are little holes on the side of the burners were the tube from the pilot light goes, they are probably clogged not allowing gas to get to the pilot light to light the burner

Two of gas burners will not light

Assuming you have electronic ignition on your stovetop, you may have spilled food onto the burner which has clogged the holes needed to get gas to the spark ignitor. Clean the holes (or slits) and dry them and try again. If they are not dirty, check to make sure you have a spark at each burner. If you have manual pilots, there could be many other problems, like the pilot is not lit, dirty vertical holes (on the burner side) at the pilot tunnel or tunnel is not positioned properly.

The pilot don't stay on

Is this the pilot for the oven or stovetop burners, or both? Pilot flames can be adjusted to increase or decrease the size. It's probably dirty which is causing it to go out. Use a small flat screwdriver to scrape the pilot tip clean or a small needle to poke it, if necessary. Then use the screwdriver to adjust the pilot flame as needed. If you follow the small aluminum tubing from the pilot, you will find a small screw on the line to adjust it. If you need more help, just let me know. Obviously, there can be other issues, but this is the most common problem. Douglas

Call your gas supplier for help. If you feel comfortable you can inspect the tank first and check that the valve isn't off. If your delivery guy knew that you ran out he would shut it of from the tank to protect your home. (since multiple pilots may have gone out).
If the valve is on then you may want to try resetting the valve to the appliance, one at a time. If I'm speaking french to you don't worry but ask a professional for help. Good luck.

The pilot light will not stay lit. A new

Try cleaning the orfice for the pilot light. You will have to dis-assemble the fuel lines from the thermostat to the burner to get at it. The orfice has an extremly small hole in it, do not make it any larger, just clean it out.

Want to clean under stovetop

welcome to Fixya,
This stove has sealed burners and there is no need to lift or clean under anything except the burner caps.
You can not get inside the top and you can not lift the top like the old pilot stoves!
When you clean the burners and around rings do not spray or saturate the are and or the igniter element that creates the spark.I'll be back in a moment with your user manual.
first what is the complete model number of your range as written on the sticker in the door jam of the storage compartment down below. left side!
