SOURCE: Jenn-Air JDG8430 Ignitor won't stop sparking after burner ignites

when you turn the dial a switch is engaged to start the ignitor , or if there is a sensor(one for the two bottom , one for the two top , it may not be reconizing that they are lit ,or the problem is sticky switch in the the dials, but I believe its a sensor that detects both of those burners that stops the spark

SOURCE: Jenn-Air JGC8536 Gas Cooktop ignitor replacement

One burner doesn't consistently light. Igniter sparks but not the same as the other - "good" burners spark at top of igniter and moves around to light, "bad" burner sparks toward the bottom and doesn't move much. I can use the burner by lighting with a match and it works fine. Have tried cleaning with a toothbrush without much success

The stove top seems to be clicking, but the burner won't light


A common problem with that type of ignitor is that the porcelain insulator (much like a spark plug has) can crack easily. When it does, there will be a clicking sound, but the spark no longer arcs from the top of the ignitor post to the burner and cannot light the gas. Without an intact insulator, the ignitor is effectively shorting out and needs to be replaced.

No spark...tried washing to be sure it's clean...dried it and still no spark.


The ignitor module may have gone bad...this is a fairly common problem...Another thing you can do is to look at the ignitors where they come through..make sure that none of them is grounding out...this would cause no spark also....if you have the proper equipment, you can test the input voltage to the ignitor module to see if it has juice...if it does , then most likely the ignitor module...these are available from most appliance parts stores...or the manufacturer

Bad ignitor needs replacement


it may just need cleaning at where it sparks to the burner if it is sparking back down the electrode then it is cracked . Some igniters pull out others have a screw that holds them in.

Test the ignitor first, if the ignitor does not spark should be the ignitor itself.
