Question about Jenn-Air JDR8895AAS Dual Fuel (Electric and Gas) Kitchen Range

1 Answer

Burner switches got wet, sparked, daughter put baking soda on them, and two front burners won't light.

My daughter was removing some liquid from over-the-stove microwave and it spilled into the burner control switches on the right (at 3 am). When it wouldn't stop sparking she dumped baking soda on it. It stopped sparking but now only the back two and middle burners will light with the switches. Is there a way to remove the top or clean out the baking soda around the burner switches?

I also got too much liquid into control switch area & had sparks. Mine needed a new electronic ignition system. I purchased my range in Jan 06 and they are covering it under warranty now, Nov 08. To open the top, unscrew 2 small screws inside the front top oven. Then unscrew all 5 burners (10 screws). Then you should be able to open the lid about 12". Repairman propped mine open with a screwdriver while he worked under there.

Electric combination range/ovens are stoves that have both surface burners and an oven. Depending on their features, some electric range/oven units are quite complex. To understand how they work, let's look at the following areas:

The control panel
The cooktop
The area beneath the cooktop
The interior of the oven
The broiler
The back of the unit

I spilled water on my gas stove.. out of 5 , 3 burners are working but there is a continuos clicking of the sparky thngs attached to each burner....

Sounds like water got into one of the burner switches. It may dry out and stop or you are going to have to replace the switch. If taking apart to replace I would replace all the ones that got wet when the water spilled.

GE range electric lighter will not stop lighting

Is your range gas with electric ignition? And are the igniters constantly clicking with the burners off? If so it sounds like you may have spilled liquids into the electric switches at the burner control knobs causing them to short. This is a common problem and the best fix is to unplug the range from the power and let the range dry out for 24 to 48 hours. Sometimes using a hairdryer can speed up the drying process. If you did not spill or get any liquids into the burner ignition switches then there is a posibillity that one of the switches is defective. You would need to test each igniter switch with a continuity tester and the burner knobs in the off position(power unplugged for safety) to see which switch is defective and replace that switch.

Stove top burner keeps on clicking

Hello, your problem is going to be 1 of 2 problems, 1st did you spill liquid on the switch? if so the switch has shorted out, unplug the appliance for 24 hours to dry the switch out then plug it back in...if after 24 hours it is still clicking you have a bad switch (these are the burner knobs) check each one with a ohms meter, the one that is bad will read infinite on your ohms meter when it is switched off. If you have any other questions please feel free to comment. Good Luck!! Mike

All 4 igniters keep clicking, when one is on

All of the igniters are connected to one source. A series of small switches mount on each stem of each burner. Any of them can fire up the spark box and it in turn it fires off all the ignitors. If a boil over spills liquid into one or more of them switches the resulting continuity causes the clicking. Removing one wire at a time from each switch till the clicking stops is the solution.

New stove gas is flowin but electrodes wont ignite turn knob to high light with lighter and flame shoots out but dont stay on please help

  • Where starting is manual (there is a 'start' position on the control(s), a set of switch contacts on the control(s) provides power to the ignition module.
    • A problem of no spark with only one control indicates that the fault is with it or its wiring.
    • A problem with continuous sparking even with all the controls off or in their normal positions indicates a short - either due to a defective switch in one of the controls or contamination (e.g., spilled liquid) bypassing the switch contacts.

  • Where starting is automatic, an electronic sensor, thermocouple, or bimetal switch provides power to the ignition module as needed.
Before you blame the ignition module for either lack of spark or continuous spark, make sure the wiring is in good condition and completely dry and clean ( or reasonably clean). Confirm that proper voltage is reaching the module with a multimeter or neon test lamp. The modules are quite robust:
  • Any liquid that may have dripped into the module may result in temporary or permanent failure. Fortunately it may be possible to pop off the bottom cover (with power OFF or the module removed!) and clean it. The most likely failure would be the SCR if you are into component level repair. Else, just replace it.
  • WARNING: There are several capacitors inside that may be charged to as much as 300 volts. The charge they can hold is probably not dangerous but may be painful or startling. Discharge these before touching anything inside or attempting to check components. Use a screwdriver blade or test clips and then confirm that they are discharged with a multimeter.
  • Contamination of the controls from spilled liquid may result in continuous activation of the ignition module since any electrical leakage across the switch contacts will likely be enough to activate it. Remove the control panel cover and dry it out or unplug the range or oven for a couple of days. If the contamination is not just plain water, it is a good idea to clean it thoroughly to prevent future problems.
  • Spills into the area of the electrodes at the gas burner assembly may short out the ignition for ALL the burners since they probably use the same module. Again, clean and dry it out or let it dry out on its own (if just water).
These are solutions for standard modules and replacements should be available from your local appliance repair shop or parts supplier. An exact mechanical match is not needed as long as the specifications are compatible.

Ignitors wont shutoff

The common way to control the ignitors is a cam on the individual shafts acting on a 'normally open' switch that is depressed in the ignition position. One of these switches has failed and no longer able to return to its normally open condition.
You may be able to locate the defective one by 'exercising' each control back and forth past the ignition position to see if one of them will cause the ignitor to stop. You may have had a spill that has allowed food liquids to gum up the switch.
