Jenn-Air Gas Range Burners Won't Light

I have a Jenn-Air Gas Range Model No. SEG196 and none of the burners will light when I turn on the various burner switches.  I don't hear the usual "clicking" sound when I turn the switches to the "lite" position.  The range is about 15 years old.  This happened all of a sudden.  I can light all of the burners with a match.  Where do I start?

    OK, so go figure.  I messed around with the flint attachment on the left side burners and basically undid and reasembled it.  Lo and behold it works,  This is very little insight I know and maybe someone else would like to profer why.

2. as far as "saddle grill" calling the manufacture (number inside your manual) will be best source of info on that, of course unless you can find an aftermarket 3rd party maker

SOURCE: jenn air range, model CVG4280B,

I do not know the cause BUT the fan behavior (on for left burners, off for right burners) is by design. The high-speed fan has two switches; 1) the primary switch visible centered between top two knobs, 2) secondary switches integrated with left burner knobs.

SOURCE: burner not working

Sometimes there is "leak" on the cable - the insulation breaks down some place else some the clicking sound is heard but no lighting. Look to see if the arching is at the electrode beside the burner - if it is then try cleaning the electrode and the areas around the burner so as to give better conduction to thr frame o the stove

Regards

SOURCE: oven quit working

Hi. this is common in many old gas range ovens. There is a set of coils that are attached to the gas valve assembly. These coils , when activated and operational, open and close the main and secondary valves in this unit. They are controlled by the main ERC(clock/oven control board). I recommend checking these coils and there respective wiring harnesses. if the clips and wires are worn and corroded, simply replace the entire wire harness.

Now, if the wiring harness and wires that are connected to the coils look good and there are no signs of corrosion on the wires and connector clips, this will confirm that the coils have failed and you will need to replace them.

You can also preform an additional test with a multimeter. simply connect your multimeter or voltage meter to both terminal posts located on the coils. once your meter is connected, start the oven cycle. you should register some sort of current during this test at this time. if the current is sufficient and the coils do not initiated the valve action, this will confirm coil failure. if the meter dosen't register a current during oven operation, this will confirm ERC(control) failure. you will have to replace the Oven control board in this case.

The Most common issue in this situation will most defiantly be the coil assembly and not the control.

Please rate and god bless:)

SOURCE: viking range burners won't light

All of these ranges have a spark module at each burner sight and they all click when ever you attempt to light one burner. Therefore, it can not be assummed that the spark module for those nonworking burners are actually clicking. Remove the burner covers and actually look for the sparks. If there is no spark make sure the connections are nice and tight. IF they are, you most likely need to replace the spark module.

Is there any kind of pilot light that I need to light? I just had the gas turned and none of the burners will light and the oven won't get hot.


There may be a gas shutoff on the range gas supply. If so,turn it on.
If it is already on,turn on a surface burner and use a match ti light it.
It will take several minutes for the air to purge from a system once gas supply has been restored.

Two burners on jenn air counter top make sparking sound but burners won't ignite


turn electricity off to ignitors. remove grates and clean up the burners good, they might have a clogged up hole. gas may not be coming out of burner holes. good-day !! if all else fails, just use a wooden match to light that burner.

If the front left also does not light normally, my best guess would be that the wires for the front left and right rear are crossed and the insulation may have fried. Besides that possibility, I have no clue.
