What i have is one out or three burners is igniting working well. How do i get the other to ignite. Thanks in advance for any help.
Ah, a Lang accutemp Griddle. Each burner has it's own controller and sensor Also a resistive switch with detents to vary the sensing probe.for temp adjustment.
Manual is here;

Are all the pilots lit. Do they have good grounds?
He said older, so I'm wondering if it's an original configuration using a basic spark module and flame switch:
If so, then the most common failure of that flame control system I saw was with the flame switch petering out or due to poor pilot flame quality that wouldn't get the tip hot enough to close the switch.
FYI: Mark, that flame switch is no longer available due to its mercury content.
Of course, we can't troubleshoot his problem over the internet. It could be any number of other things.
I strongly suggest that a service company be called to take a look at it.
I agree with Ectofix on the safety being the most prominent cause of failure to heat. They stopped making those in 2014, However there are some re-builders out there. Most failures are actually improper heat to the bulb. Mostly pilot mixture or orifice dirt. Fuel gas is not as clean as it is promoted to be. It is possible to convert it to a EDSI version, but very costly. Different food service organizations have different views on the rebuilds, There is a large difference in rebuild quality control vs. original manufacturer. There are some good ones though. I've replaced several on Vulcans over the years with good results. Be aware the the pilot assembly is a special beryllium alloy to react and make the correct temp for the bulb. They do age and drop temp as well.
