Jenn Air Cooktop Burners Won't Ignite

I have a Jenn Air cooktop model CCGP2420P. For the past few months I've had trouble lighting the burners regularly. The ignitors all fire fine, but the gas flow only comes through periodically. It's impossible to predict when the thing will light and when it won't When it does light, it will do so regularly for an hour or two, then return to its tempermental ways. I've actually had a tech come to the house and tell me everything is fine mechanically and with my gas connection (of course the thing was working normally when he was here). Any help would be greatly appreciated--I'd love to get an idea of possible problems before I have another tech charge me $125 to tell me the thing's working normally.

    Have the same problem. Has happened for 7 years. Gas is there, can be lit with a match, but will not ignite on it's own. Other three burners work fine.

    I see the spark, gas flow is fine, won't ignite without using a lighter.

The orifices may be dirty. They can usually be cleaned out with a safety pin.

When one burner knob is turned to ignite all four burners turn on.

What do you mean by "all four burners turn on"
Some electronic ignite systems turn on on all the burners, But just the SPARK not the gas part of the burner.
Is this what you are describing?.

Two of five cooktop burners fail to light

you can try to scratch the area where it grounds to with a wire brush or screw driver this will help sometimes. sometimes when it archs down try tighten the screws to lift up the ignitors into the hole better. or if this doesn't work replace the ignitors.
