I have a six-burner gas stove top. A couple of burners will not ingnite without a match. The igniter clicks but no spark. The two burners are: left back and middle front (knobs on the right hand side). I have tried adjusting the "caps" and wiping down the "teeth" in each burner. Occassionally this helps, but it could be just a coincidence.

Re: Some Burners Will Not Ignite
Probably a worn wire to the electrode or a cracked ignitor. you are faced with taking off the hobtop and looking - no easy solution. you should not do this unless you are confident and don't interupt the gas path

all burner igniters work at the same time - you may have a faulty electronic spark unit. change the spark unit. go to repair clinic dot come for the unit. also would be wise to check the ingniter start switch on the gas burner control knob
Most likely its dirty meaning the burners themselves and aren't getting any gas through. If you feel lucky you can do this without turning off or unplugging the stove, but on the oft chance there is a short I would do those just to be on the safe side. If you know how lift the top part of the stove up, you did not give model number. Find the electrode and clean with a clean toothbrush, plug in see if there is a sparks, actually look for the spark first. If you have a spark then your issue is the feed to your burners or the burners themselves being clogged. The feed is like a straw should there be an obstruction than nothing passes through. Clean the burners with a pin, blow through the gas inlets that go to the burners. After cleaning retry.
