Cooktop will not light
I have an Amana cooktop that will not light unless I use a fire stick. I have replaced the ignitor and it sparks blue sparks but will not light. What am I missing or are there other parts that wear out or need to be cleaned?

Spark happens inside/next to small port that gas flows towards spark
If clogged the gas can flow to other ports of burner but not close enough to spark to be ignited

Clean burner 'disfuser' ports with toothpick and tooth brush

Is there a small tube from the burner to the igniter? Ismit plugged or burned thru?
Have you taken the burner off and cleaned it? Gas stoves are so darn simple. Gas, spark= flame. If it lights with a match and the burner is burning even then it comes down to a spark issue.
