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.

I have a kenmore stove model number 790,72403012 and 3 of the 4 burners are working. They all are getting a spark, but the front left won't fire up.


First, try to light the burner in question with a match. Just hold a match to the burner, then turn the gas on to low. If the burner doesn`t light, the problem is the gas supply to the burner. Next, lift the top cover and put the prop rod in the hole in the cover to support it. Hold a match to the left-front burner. Now, turn the control knob to "light". You should see the igniter spark and hear a snap. If this doesn`t happen, repeat this step with the left rear burner. If you hear the spark and snap.
If the igniter doesn`t work on the front left burner, but does on the rear left burner, the igniter does work. The problem is likely the control knob for the left front burner. The. Control knob includes the electrical switch the activates the igniter when you turn on that burner.

All five burners worked fine till I cleaned it now three dont work


These burners can be a pain sometimes.... first of all did you let them air dry and shake them to make sure all of the water is out of them ... any water in them will prevent them from working correctly. Secondly, are you sure you seated them correctly on the burner receptical? Third... make sure you have spark from the igniter... there may be water or moisture on them grounding out the spark and preventing the spark to jump to the gas to make a flame.
Good luck and I hope it works.

Hello,

FOR THE OVEN NOT HEATING

The problem beleive it or not is that the bake igniter is weak ,and it is not drawing the proper amprage to open the gas valve.If you have a amp meter access the wires to the bake igniter(usually behind the storage drawer) and check for 3.3-3.6 amps when oven is set to bake by clamping the meter around ONE wire wire of igniter make sure only one wire,either one and not both.
if amp draw less than 3.3-3.6 amps replace bake igniter. I know it seems improbable that if the igniter comes on that it could be the problem.Professional appliance technicians who would charge a average of $250.00 to repair your oven,have found when the igniter comes on yet the oven won't heat that a weak igniter is the cause 100% of the time

FOR THE SURFACE BURNER NOT LIGHTING The holes on the burner espically those around where the electrode are dirty/clogged. By using a paper clip/safety pin to push in and clear the holes then clean the burner up with some steel wool the burner should light. GENE

I have a whirlpool gas oven model # SF367LEKB and the oven will not ignite. You can hear the ignitor clicking but it will not light. The broiler and four burners work fine. This happened several months...


Hello,
What you need to check is if the spark is strong at the bake burner.To do that remove the oven floor and the flame spreader under the oven floor, set the oven to bake and look for a good bright spark. If the spark is good the bake burner needs to be replaced,if it's a weak spark the electrode(spark Plug) will be needed.
The part numbers are

Bake burner 8054077
Electrode 8054129
They could be purchased at your local appliance parts store or online at;
searspartsdirect.com
apdepot.com
repairclinic.com
assuredparts.com
applianceparspros.com

I hope this will help youto beable to repair your oven,
Gene

The electronic ignitor on front right burner no longer works.


All ignitors should fire regardless of which burner is turned on. See if the right front will light up if you turn on another burner or look for a spark. If not, the ignitor is probably fouled and needs a good cleaning. If the right front burner will spark or ignite when a different burner is turned on, it is the right front control switch - not an easy fix. When cleaning the cook top, if you remove the knobs, any liquid that gets into the switches will short them out. Found that out the hard way.

Ignitors keep making ticking sound, all burners turned off, won't go in lock position, and one burner will not ignite gas despite constant ticking


Probably a spillage or boil over has clogged the burner and some of the liquid has dampened the shank switch mounted on the burner post. Get a shop vac and clean the burner. Wait a day or 2 and see if the switch stops. OR disable the ticky ticky by removing the bottom drawer and looking for the spark module. Remove one of the hot wires and tape it up. Light the burners like granny does with a match. LOL

When i turn the knob for the front burner, there is a clicking sound (igniter), but the burner takes a while to ignite. the other burner work fine. is the front burner igniter malfunctioning?


Hi, Make sure the ignitor is actually sparking on this burner. Try removing the cap on the burner and scraping/sanding the bottom side where the ignitor spark hits it. Sometimes these will get a film on them and not let the spark work properly. If there is another cap the same size, you can try switching them and see if the burner lights. If that does not help, remove the cap again and see if there is something plugging the orfice at all.
I hope this helps you. Please let me know if I can assist ou further.

One burner igniter fails to spark after getting wet


Each burner has its own switch to direct current to the igniter. It appears that one of the four switches burned or shorted out, while the other three survived the flood. These switches are replaceable, so that's how I'll fix the problem.

Igniters won't turn on & unwanted flammes


You say you have no sparks coming from your gas range, but your rear burner is lighting. That doesn't quite make sense. If some of your burners are lighting, then the problem can't be with the spark module. The spark module sends a spark to ALL the igniters at the same time. That is, EACH burner switch, when turned to ignite, will cause a spark to go to ALL the burner igniters at the same time. Just watch the next time you turn one of your burner switches on, and you'll see a spark at all the burners simultaneously. This is normal. I suspect that you have a bad igniter switch or wiring harness. For example, if you have a front burner that won't light, but WILL light when you turn on another burner, the spark is being provided by a working burner switch. This is also normal. Now, am I assuming that your back burner will not light properly, but will light if you use the front burner? If so, the burner switch for the rear burner is probably bad, or the wiring harness has a break somewhere. Now...if you have no sparks, as you say, but randomly a burner will light, then I would suspect a bad spark module. I hope I'm not confusing you here. In a nutshell: One burner doesn't work, but all others do - bad burner switch, or wiring harness. No burners light, or light randomly - spark module. I hope this helps you.

Stove burner igniter does not work.


Your problem is not the igniter itself, but the burner switch that controls the igniter. All the igniters get their power from one spark module that is mounted somewhere in back of the oven. That's why you are able to get all the igniters to spark with only one burner control turned on. This is normal. That is also why you are able to light the burner in question buy turning on another burner. The spark is being provided by a switch that is working. To answer your question: the igniter is removable, but I don't think it's necessary. Cleaning them generally doesn't make them work better. I would check the wiring from the spark module to the burner switch and/or replace the switch. I hope this helps.
