Cool Magic Chef range top burners won't lite

The left rear burner lights always.The right rear burner lites sometimes. The two front burners will light if you blow on them. The 4 burners all have spark at the sealed burners. The units are clean, all the holes are clear. I have had a dealer technician look at it and he could not find the problem. He suggested replacing all the burners for almost the price of a new stove. Any idea's?

Hello btbrooks and Welcome to the Do It Yourself Web Site and my Gas Appliances topic.

Clean burners usually light well. Providing the burners are not in the least bit warped and are reassembled correctly after a cleaning. If the spark is good, the burners are clean and the burners still will not light after a tech serviced them, they indeed may need replacement. Hard to say without being there.

You might try asking the local appliances parts dealer if any such problems exist with that model. Other than being onsight, difficult to say exactly what a cause could be. Try cleaning the ignitors, if needed.
