The right front burner control (not the knob) came loose, not fixed to the stove like the other three and the gas will not shut off. Don't ask me how I confirmed this, it involved a lighter. I have turn off the gas at the back of the stove. Needless to say I have to replace the burner control. Is that something I can do? If so, where do I find the part and how do I do it? OR am I calling GE repair?? Thanks in advance for your help.

That is food/grease buildup. Clean the holes. TURN OFF GAS to stove, then just clean the holes in the burners with a soft wire brush. Then turn gas back on and immediately relight pilot lights. If that sounds scary, call your gas company, they might come out and help.
If there is no clicking sound like you hear when you turn on the other burners than I'm going to say that either the electrode is bad or the spark switch, which is what you turn to turn on the burner to begin with. Both parts are cheap so it may be a good maintenance thing to change all of the burners. Make sure you have your model and go to www.repairclinic.com and order both parts, and if you don't need one send it back for a full refund even if you installed it. good luck
it depends on the model and manufacturer of your stove .. some have solid state relays that could be shorted (usually computer controlled stove) or a conventional relay (for cycling) that may have a stuck contact .. if its a conventiional stove with spiral cooking surface (not smoothtop) .. then you can make sure the burner is not hot and the stove is unplugged .. then you can simply lift and pull the burner out of its socket .. that will get you working temporarily on the other burners until ;you can fix the problem .. that burner could have an internal short to ground .. easy to check with an ohm meter or by substitution of one of the other burners .. if another burner does the same thing then suspect the relay or control switch ... if the substitute burner works properly then replace the defective one ..
The most common problem for gas surface burners is that they get gas but don't light. This is generally caused by dirt or grease splatters on the burner itself. Residential-grade range/stove burners are round and have small holes around their perimeter to allow gas to flow out and create a round flame. The gas coming from these holes is often ignited by a small vertical row of holes on the side of the burner. If these vertical holes are clogged or obstructed, the gas can't ignite.
The solution is to clean the burners thoroughly. Use a toothpick to clear the small vertical holes, then allow the burner to dry completely and try lighting it again. If it doesn't light immediately, repeat the procedure
You have one or more spark switches defective or a loose wire to the switches.
They are located on each gas valve stem.
Yes they should be replaced for safety.
In the interim you can match light the surface burners.
you have one of three problems. first check to se if it's sparking when turning on, if not try cleaning sparker with a small wire brush, second try turning on another burner and see if it sparks then, if it does the switch is bad (under the knob), third is to replace spark module.
