Question about Jenn-Air Kitchen Ranges

Two of my burners stopped lighting automatically, I have to use a match. I suspect our housecleaner may have scrubbed too hard and messed something up. What can I do and what should I do to avoid happening again?

It may be that your house cleaner got the igniters wet so give it a couple of days to dry thoroughly then you may have to get new igniter tips if the housekeeper did scrub too hard. If it turns out the igniters are the problem there is one on each burner point them out to your house keeper and tell her not to touch them at all. If it turns out not to be the igniters check the wiring and the spark module. Good Luck.

The automatic ignition on my gas grill is not functioning. What's the alternative lighting method. A match?


YES, YOU CAN DO A MATCH.
BEFORE YOU LIGHT IT WITH A MATCH, REMOVE THE TOP GRILL TO
EXPOSE THE BURNER BELOW IT.
THIS WAY THE MATCH WHEN LIT AND THROWN IN WILL NOT GET STUCK IN THE
GRILL AREA WHILE THE GAS IS ON. THEN MORE GAS WILL BE IN THERE
BEFORE YOU GET ANOTHER MATCH LIT TO THROW IN. NEXT THING
YOU KNOW, THE MATCH DROPS DOWN IN BETWEEN THE GRILL AND
FINALLY MAKES THE BURNER AREA AND GOES 'BOOM'!
REMOVING THE TOP GRILL MAKES IT EASY TO TOSS THE MATCH
DOWN BY THE BURNER AFTER A FEW SECONDS WITHOUT A 'BOOM'.
TO FIX YOUR ELECTRONIC START BUTTON ON MOST UNITS, RE-POSITION
THE ARC UNIT IN THE BURNER AREA, TO BE CLOSER TO THE METAL IT ARCS TO.
IT IS MOST LIKELY VIBRATED AWAY FROM IT TO FAR AND THE ARC WILL NOT REACH
METAL OR GROUND TO MAKE AN ARC TO LIGHT THE GAS.

Gas top burner not lighting ( 4 others work )


It's probably the ignitor and there may be soemthing clogging one of the gas holes. You can gently use a scrub brush to dislodge any cloggs and see if that helps. You might have to replace the ingitor if this doesn't work. We have parts, so please call us to help. Hope this does the trick for you. Ella

Griddle burner wont spark


Make certain the burner and burner base are very clean by carefully washing in warm soapy water, using a plastic brush to scrub any residue off the surfaces. Also clean the spark ignition nub in this same way.

Stovetop not lighting


Get a small wire brush and scrub around the ignitor real good so that it can get a good ground.

Dacor cooktop ignition problem


TAKE THE BURNER CAPS OFF AND CLEAN THEM REALLY WELL AND MAKE SURE THAT THEY R PUT BACK ON PROPERLY THRER ARE GENERALLY A NOTCH THAT HAS TO BE LINED UP JUST RIGHT FOR THE CAPS TO FULLY SEED TO PROMOTE PROPER LITING

If I'm not mistaken, these dacor cooktops have an automatic re-ignition (meaning if the flame goes out, it will just relight it without you having to do it) If none of your burners will light, you probably have a bad spark ignition module. These are somewhat hard to change, as you have to take all the burners off and disconnect the spark wires and take the whole top of the cooktop off to get to the inner workings. Also, to get these burner bases off it takes a special tool by dacor, AND you usually have to replace all the burner seals once you take them apart.Your other, simpler option is to unplug the cooktop and plug a lamp or something in to the outlet the cooktop is using, just to make sure you have power. Just cause the breaker doesn't look like it's tripped, doesn't mean it isn't bad and the outlet is dead. Hope this helps!
