Question about Jenn-Air JGR8850 Gas Kitchen Range
I have a broken spark igniter on our CVG4380W cooktop. There are 3 igniters, and it's the one for the griddle section. I assume that to remove the igniter I must approach from underneith, but there doen't appear to be an easy access panel to the area. There's also a blower / exhaust fan assembly to contend with underneith. What is the best / easiest way to remove and replace the broken spark igniter? I appreciate any help you can provide! Tiseye
I appreciate your post. We had just become used to lighting the griddle area with a long handled butane lighter. It seemed easier than going through the labors involved. However, I like the sound of your approach, and because it is probably much easier than removing the whole unit, I will likely go ahead and replace the igniter. I was surprised at how expensive they are though!
Thanks for your post.

There are two panels to remove. One underlaying the grill with (7) 1/4 screws holding it up. This exposes the igniter Use an open end wrench to remove the igniter nut (it will hang on the wire). On the front of the stove top is a vertical black panel. Remove the cover with 1/4" socket. On the right side you'll see a blue relay. The white wire from the grill igniter will be plugged in there. You can tie a string on the end (that plugs into the relay) to ease the installation of the new wire. Or it's easy enough to fish under the upper panel to the control panel. Ensure that you replace the nut on the new igniter.

You should be able to remove the hose from the blower and lift the unit out of the countertop. Then there should be screws around the sides to take out that will give you access to the inside.
