Stove top keeps turning off

My 18 year old Jenn Air stove top has recently started turning off. Some times flipping the fuse makes it come back on, but not always.

There are no other appliances that use the same fuse, so it isn't caused by over load. The house was built in 1960

It is old enough that the connector, that the elements plug into, are probably dirty or bad (as in burnt up, corroded, etc.). A high resistance connection could cause the breaker to occasionally trip.

I would examine them by lifting/unplugging/removing the sections from the stove and look at plug with flashlight. They are easy enough to get at, clean or replace, if necessary. I have cleaned mine with sandpaper and tightened them up and had them work better for a while.
Make sure element ends are not eaten up or dirty, too.

My Jenn-Air range top will spark but no ignition. Gas does not seem to have enough pressure on that burner


Generally the issue with this is not that you don't have the correct pressure but the Burner top hat that displaces the gas is dirty.
Remove the metal rack to expose the burner itself. Make sure it's not been used recently to prevent a burn. Carefully lift the little burner cap off. This is the piece with all the holes in it the flames come from. They generally just sit on top. You will need a flashlight, know look in the little slits below the cap for cleaning material buildup. A tooth pick or a stiff bristle tooth brush can be used to clean these little slits.
The cleaning products used to clean stove tops tends to leave little trace amounts of surfactants that over time block these little slits and prevent the escaping gas to flow towards the ignitor preventing the burner from lighting.
Once you have this clean replace the top. Put the pan grate back on and try to relight the stove.
I am sure this should fix you issue. If it doesn't please let me know and I can give you some other tips to try.

My Jenn Air Electric stove is making a clicking noise. When I put my hand on one of the cook top knobs I can actually feel a vibration when the click occurs. What is this?


Gas stove? LP? It is probably the electric spark ignitor. Many times when you clean the stove top water from the sponge gets below. The water droplets (align mysteriously) make the connection between the wires, and the stove thinks it's supposed to be igniting. When the water evaporates, the switch will work fine again & the clicking should only occur when igniting & then backed off.

This happened to me once before.

I have a 4 burner Jenn-Air JED8430ADB electric radiant heat stove that has recently stopped working. It has been installed for many years (came with the house) and worked fine until now. When I turn one...


The cook top is connected to 220 volts. In the house wiring there are two legs each 115 volts. Usually they connect with a red wire, black wire and the third a neutral. It is likely that at the connection to the unit or at the electrical box a connection has failed or the 220 volt circuit breaker has failed on one leg. A qualified electrician needs to do the repair!

Igniter will not turn off. Makes a clicking sound


Hi, normally what causes the igniter to keep clicking is spilling water or something down into the knob area. The water is causing a short circuit in the switch which is mounted on each burner valve shaft. If unplugging the range for several days to allow drying doesn't fix the problem, then one of the switches will need to be replaced.

The Grill side on my electric cooktop doesnt seem heat up enough


I had the same problem with the 45" Jenn Air downdraft cook top. The installation of the ductwork from the stove to the outside of the house was not properly installed. The stove is appr 18' from an outside wall and the flow of air was hampered by
too great a bend in the ductwork at the point below the stove on the underside of the house and the pipe going to the outside wall. I believe that was corrected with more curve in the vent work, making for a smoother flow of air. Make sense?

Stove top [gas] JENNAIR


Try carefully cleaning around the ignitors. Also clean hole in burners. Clean the holes closest to ignitors. This can be caused by a crack in ignitor, this requires replacement.
