Question about GE 36 in. JGP628 Gas Cooktop
U can solve this problem by cleaning off the igniters. first of all unplug it from the power. Then take a small wire telcom pic tool to scrape the white and brown deposits from the sides of the igniters. You could probably use something else similiar to do the scraping. I noticed a shiny surface underneath. then go ahead and scrap it and brushed clean the mating surface where the spark travels. then vacuumed up the mess. your burners all worked great after this.
Turned off the power, removed the five knobs and corresponding rubber rings, and used a hair dryer on the five holes where the knobs were for about ten minutes in total. Hey presto, when I turned the power back on.

Some of the probable causes to your problem are:-
Blow into the little holes where the gas comes out.sometimes they get clogged with water after washing them or something is spilled on them. sometimes this is the solution.
If ithe spark gap on the igniter is plugged with food, clean it with a small brush and rubbing alcohol. Do not scrape.
On some ranges if the burner is rotated when cleaned and is in the wrong position, it will not light.
Or a cracked electrode ignitor or bad wire to the ignitor can stop/prevent the spark from sparking at the correct spot and lighting the burner.
Sometimes the problem is a bad ignition switch too.
