Lookin at yer diagram I noticed this model has a spark module. If all the burners won't lite I imagine that spark module is out. I worked on some gas stove a while back and took a few photos. Twist these sealed burners and lift them off you will notice each one has a wire from ground and a wire from module.   

How it works

Your module could be on the backside behind a shield OR sometimes they mount em down below inside the bottom drawer.
Their is no need to raise the top.
