Question about Jenn-Air 34 in. Expressions CVGX2423 Gas Cooktop
All ignitors on my Jenn-Air Cooktop (model CVGX2423) continue to spark for a long period (even when only one burner is turned on). I have cleaned all of the burner heads and their ports. But, the problem persists. Do I need to replace the ignitors? If so, where do I get the instructions to do so?
Just had this problem today on our seven or eight year old Jenn-Air cooktop. When using the front right burner all ignitors would continue to fire until I turned off the burner. The three other burners worked correctly. After trying all the obvious soulutions w/o success I pulled off that burners control knob and the rubber seal which exposed the valve. Their was a bunch of crud in there. I put a small (one inch) paint brush in there and vigorusly loosened all the crud. I then inserted the nozzle of our central vac - which just happened to fit perfectly - and sucked all the stuff out. I repeated the proceedure a couple more times, reassembled the knob and started the burner. Worked just perfectly!!! YMMV. Good luck.

I have seen a similar unit that had a switch assembly mounted inside the control panel that fired the ignitors. Each control knob had a one; 4 knobs, 4 assemblies. Its possible that the assembly is sticking due to cooking residue or cleaner. From what I remember, access was a monumental problem - uninstall, disassemble complete unit, clean, then reverse process.
