The cook top is attached to the wood frame by brackets, just remove the screws and the electric connection, make sure the power is off from the main box, it's a 220 volt wiring and then just lift the top off. to remove the glass, look around the edges and you should see some small screws, just remove them and the glass should lift off.

SOURCE: conversion from electric to lp gas

Simple answer NO.

Unless Jenn-air has a conversion kit. (highly doubt this)
It would be a serious undertaking to switch out 2 burners for LP use.
Gas tubes, igniters, electronics, regulator, gas jets.
Not to mention the modifications changes needed to the stove top to make all this work. That gas regulator has to go somewhere and piping from tank/regulator/burners.

Not saying it can't be done mind you.
But think about it long and hard before committing to this job.
Small gas leak can become a huge headache later.

SOURCE: all cook top burners spark when any is turned on

OK, the best action is to call for service, if the unit was just installed, and purchased. This unit should be covered at this time, by the manufactures warranty, or store 30 day warranty. This repair should be free. The culprit will be a faulty spark ignition switch, and module. Testing is required. Once this switch, or(module), is replaced, the unit will operate correctly.

Make sure there is no blockage of the burner near where the spark jumps. All it takes is a drop of water to stop the gas flow near the spark. Most likely you can use a knife or some other thin blade to clear the slots where the flame comes out of the burner.

My burner sparks though my burners are off


did you spill liquid on the cooktop? sometimes if you just let it sit for a few days to let it dry out it will fix itself. but if you spilled oil on it it will not fix itself. you have a bad spark module and the only way to fix that is to remove the cookyop fromt he burner box. and find where all the wire go into this usually redish orange box sometimes its blue. but that is your spark module. let me know if you have any more questions

Igniter will not turn off once burners are lit.


I've had the same problem for 2 years. Today I removed the four burner tops, the 15/16 inch bolt that holds the burners in place, took everything apart (simple connections underneath), completely cleaned and dried eveything. I also cleaned the 4 knobs and making sure the 4 swiches slide up and down freely then dried everything with a hairdryer. Is now works fine but if the problem comes back, I'll simply unplug the cooktop and light it manually. P.S. I stripped one of the large 5/16 inch bolt that had become weak and brittle. - Try using water or some liquid to loosen the bolts as necessary. Good luck, CHEERS!
