Jenn-Air JDG8430 Ignitor won't stop sparking after burner ignites

After turning on the large burner (bottom left), all igniters continue to spark. All other burners function correctly. This condition happens when other burners are on or off. I have removed the burner and cleaned it along with the igniter. Is this just a bad igniter or a sign of something else? Thanks On my Jenn-Air JGD8430ADB, my smaller lower left burner when turned on sets off the other burner ignitors and when I turn on all the burners the ignitors keep going?? The cooktop is a year old.

1. The left side of your unit is miss-wired. The front must go to theback, and the back to the front. You can either switch them at themodule, or the igniters themselves (the correct way would be to look atthe schematic and correct it at the spot it is wrong but it really doesnot matter). Some of the units have an access panel under the unitwhich makes accessing the module pretty easy. Some units have largeenough holes under the burners (not the cap the burner itself, usuallyheld on by one or two screws) once they are removed to fish the wiresback and forth. Whichever is easier for you. Switching them at the igniter is the easiest fix as long as you have enough wire.

2. This could be a bad spark module. But first, verify that the outlet polarity is correct before you change the module. This flow chart gives you further guidance on troubleshooting erratic spark problems.

Test the ignitor first, if the ignitor does not spark should be the ignitor itself.

When you turn the dial a switch is engaged to start the ignitor , or if there is a sensor(one for the two bottom , one for the two top , it may not be reconizing that they are lit ,or the problem is sticky switch in the the dials, but I believe its a sensor that detects both of those burners that stops the spark

    after some research it seems to be an electronic control device, an electronic tech should be able to fix this, do not call the appliance guy as he won't be able to fix it because it is an electronic component problem

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.

Jenn-Air JGC8536 Gas Cooktop ignitor replacement


One burner doesn't consistently light. Igniter sparks but not the same as the other - "good" burners spark at top of igniter and moves around to light, "bad" burner sparks toward the bottom and doesn't move much. I can use the burner by lighting with a match and it works fine. Have tried cleaning with a toothbrush without much success

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!
