You have ignitor issues. If there is a spark on your other burners but not this one it is the wiring, the switch (if the sparking doesn't happen with this burner) or the gap is worn. If these hints don't get you to an answer...get a pro in to look at this.

Simpson EZISET cooktop control knob does not turn

Take some electronics contact cleaner, CRC is best, and spray the knob. It has grease inside that is preventing the spring from popping it up so it turns. You'll need to get a new knob eventually and please don't install it yourself unless you are well versed in working with gas.

I have a JGP636 or 960. One burner won't do

When you turn the burner knob on does the igniter click and turn off on it's own when the flame ignites? If it does then it has flame rectification. That means it can sense when the flame is on. Or does it click when the knob is in the light position and not stop until you move the burner knob? Then this is standard ignition. If it is standard ignition it sounds like it is the igniter switch built into the burner knob might be defective. Are you able to turn on any burner knob and when they are in the igniter position do all the electrodes spark or just the burner that you are turning on? If they all come on then they are wired in a series. If they are wired in a series do you get a spark at the electrode of the problem igniter? If so you can turn on one of the other burners to ignition position then while it is clicking turn on the problem burner to light it. If the cooktop uses flame rectification then there may be a problem with the switch built into the burner knob or the flame rectification sensor for that burner might be bad.

Ticking sound does not go off even after knob is turned to high or medium

A lot of questions on this site but very few answers. I have the same problem. After an overflow from a pot, the 2 front burners now won't light one rear one lights but won't stop sparking and the littlest one is fine.

Igniter will not turn off once burners are lit.

I've had the same problem for 2 years. Today I removed the four burner tops, the 15/16 inch bolt that holds the burners in place, took everything apart (simple connections underneath), completely cleaned and dried eveything. I also cleaned the 4 knobs and making sure the 4 swiches slide up and down freely then dried everything with a hairdryer. Is now works fine but if the problem comes back, I'll simply unplug the cooktop and light it manually. P.S. I stripped one of the large 5/16 inch bolt that had become weak and brittle. - Try using water or some liquid to loosen the bolts as necessary. Good luck, CHEERS!
