Type of Appliance: Oven/Range/Stove

Brand: GE Gas Downdraft Cooktop

Model Number: JGP389BEV4BB

Your Precious Words:
I can not turn of the knobs to ignite my gas cooktop burner. So the back right burner is now useless. How can we fix it?

This is a problem with the gas valve for the affected burner. The knob is attached directly to the bad valve. If you can use a screwdriver and a wrench and can fog a mirror, you can do this repair!
