    You have one or more "sticky" switches.
    To find out which one remove the access panel. Turn on a switch so that it sparks. Turn it past the lite position and start removing wires from each spark switch. When the sparking stops that will be the bad switch.
    Replace it.
    Turn the gas off to do this test.

Gas burner won't light unless gas is turned down to the low position.


I've had this happen before,first make sure that the black burner cap is clean underneath and it's making good contact with the aluminium burner,also make sure the igniter is sparking across to the burner, check the ceramic coating around the igniter isn't cracked or the wires shorting out . Good luck.

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


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

I turn on one of the burners and after it lights it keeps trying to light


A continuously running electronic spark igniter could be caused by a bad flame sensor (usually a capillary tube) or igniter controller.

I have prolonged igniter activation even when a burner is lit. I have searched the possible causes for this and none mention a bad flame sensor. I assume the sensor is built into the igniter. Is that...


Your problem is a stuck igniter switch or a bad spark module.
Each surface valve has its own igniter switch. Turn off the gas. Remove the panel covering the valves to access the switches.
With the gas OFF,turn on all surface switches. Move the dial past the LITE setting. The switches should still be making the sparking sound.
Remove one wire at a time from each surface switch.
When the sparking stops,that last switch with the wire removed will be the bad switch. The one that needs replacing.
If you do not find a bad switch the main spark control module will have to be replaced.
Part # 71003385 Igniter switch.
Part # 71002783 Spark module.
Occasionally a igniter switch becomes dislodged from the correct position and can be re-seated. Look at the position of all switches before you do any test. Make sure they are all seated.

All cook top burners spark when any is turned on


OK, the best action is to call for service, if the unit was just installed, and purchased. This unit should be covered at this time, by the manufactures warranty, or store 30 day warranty. This repair should be free. The culprit will be a faulty spark ignition switch, and module. Testing is required. Once this switch, or(module), is replaced, the unit will operate correctly.

Igniter keeps firing


The problem resolved on its own. I'm guessing some moisture from my cleaning was the culprit...when the moisture dried the igniter stopped sparking.
