Angie's List does not actually "do" any work - it is a directory and review site for members to find contractors to do work and for personal services vendors. But yes vendors listed on this site should all come to both houses and apartments.

Appliance Repair - Large would be the Search the List category for you to find a well-rated and reviewed company to send out a tech to work on this.

Ranges commonly have one ignitor per two burners, so that may be your problem, especially if both quit working at the same time - but could be something else too, like a control board failure.

If the ignitor is the problem, the part is commonly around $20-50 for the part depending on brand (Maytag is real common so should not be too expensive) - labor could be around $100-200 range depending on whether they have in stock and bring the part with them (so one trip does it) or they come to diagnose, then come back another day with the part to install it and charge for two trips to do that - some do, so be sure to ask for a phone estimate for the work based on your description of the problem. Possibly somewhat more in a very few very high cost areas.

Of course if under warranty (commonly 1-3 years on ranges) then assuming you registered the purchase or have proof of purchase and it is within the warranty period, call the warranty repair number on the warranty.

They will want to know the brand and the model number and maybe serial number (which is usually on a plastic or metal plate or label inside the bottom drawer or on the frame or oven door - visible when drawer/door is open, commonly mounted on edge. They will also probably ask if you can hear the ignitor "clicking" or "snapping" when you try to turn them on, and if you smell any unburned gas when trying to start it. That would give them some clues about parts they might need to bring (if they have them in stock).
