Question about Jenn-Air 30 in.JGD8430ADS Gas Cooktop
We are replacing a 10 year old gas downdraft cooktop w model JGD8430ADS. The hole in the counter is slightly too small (21 1/2" long) for the new cooktop (has curved front which just sits on egde of old hole. Any suggestions?
You can get a new cooktop surface from Maytag/Jennair for $229. It is a pain however to replace it. Where is the crack in your cooktop and does that crack pass directly through a heating element? If not, then you may be able to repair it. I broke the corner off mine, and then dropped the piece (now 5 pieces). I was able to bond them back together and you really can't tell it was ever broken. But, it takes some work.

Here is a blowup diagram of the cooktop.
Looking up the service manual - it is no longer available.
Hope this is helpful.
Thanks for using FixYa!!

If the burner just clicks and won't stare try this (a local tech showed me) Scrape the underside of the burner cap (the removable black disk in the middle of the burner) with a key or knife and watch it work! But be ready to do it again and again. There's a glossy finish left by the factory he said.
