In this paper, we are concerned with the following elliptic equations: \begin{equation*}\label{e:JG} \begin{cases} -\Delta_{\mathbb{M}}u = \lambda f &\text{in } z:= (r,x,t) \in \mathbb{M}_0,\\ u= 0 &\text{on } \partial\mathbb{M}. \end{cases} \end{equation*} Here, $\lambda >0$ and $M=[0,1)\times X\times[0,1)$ as a local model of stretched corner-manifolds, that is, the manifolds with corner singularities with dimension $N=n+2\geq 3$. Here $X$ is a closed compact submanifold of dimension $n$ embedded in the unit sphere of $\mathbb{R}^{n+1}$. We study the existence of nontrivial weak solutions for the semilinear corner degenerate elliptic equations without the Ambrosetti and Rabinowitz condition via the mountain pass theorem and fountain theorem.
