Jenn-Air JGD8130 Gas Cooktop will not ignite. Electronic pilotless ignition 'clicks' but will not ignite the flame. Have removed and cleaned the elements, still no luck.

Why do Jenn-Air cooktop igniters click when the exhaust fan is on med-high and the burners are on low flame setting ? ?

Igniters sense flame temperature, and if the fan cools the temp sensor down, your cooktop thinks the flame has gone out, so it clicks to reignite it.

When one burner knob is turned to ignite all four burners turn on.

What do you mean by "all four burners turn on"
Some electronic ignite systems turn on on all the burners, But just the SPARK not the gas part of the burner.
Is this what you are describing?.

Six burner gas cooktop

My husband figured it out.....when we took the knobs off, I, of course, washed the area they had been sitting on, thereby spilling some water into the open part which contained the wires leading to the igniters.  A short time with a hair dryer sorting things out.

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!
