Question about Maytag MGC5536 Gas Cooktop
I have had that problem and often it is just the little ceramic "tops" that sit over the burner assembly. They are removable for cleaning and if they aren't seated just right, the burner often won't light.
I'm having a different issue where tonight I turned on a burner then decided to turn it off. A couple of minutes later ALL of the ignitors started on their own. They were all set to off and I double checked them all. I unplugged the unit and let it sit for 15min then plugged it in. Nothing igniting and I was able to light a burner and then shut it off. About 15min later it did it again. It staying unplugged until I can find some details about whats going on or I'll have to replace it.

Yikes .. you have a very dangerous condition there ... ventalate the area and turn the gas off immediatly.. there is a shutoff valve somewhere in the gas line coming to the stove top .. if you cant find that then shut off the gas at the gas meter or call the gas company to do that for you (its free) ...
your problem is likely a loose pipe or cracked manafold .. it is leaking gas under the cooktop .. i would replumb the unit and check for cracks .. or call a professional .. your unit comes with a 1 year warranty or an additional 4 years if you bought extra coverage .. that probably wont cover a bad installation if thats the problem (unless the repair company installed the unit to start with) .. but will cover the stoves inside plumbing ..
your stove is not safe the way it is .. if you can still smell gas then you shouldnt be in the house until the gas is turned off ... windows should be open .. dont turn on lights or other things that can ignite the gas .. and absolutely dont try to relight the burners until the problem is fixed ..
