Question about Jenn-Air 30 in. CCG2423 Gas Cooktop

1 Answer

3 of 4 knobs do not compress to turn on gas

While I was cooking dried beans in water, the liquid boiled over and snuffed the flame. The water seeped under the stove top and the clicking sound of the ingnition sparks started. So, I unplugged the stove top to quiet the noise. I sopped up the liquid and replugged the stove and the clicking noise is gone. Now, 3 of the 4 knobs are impossible to turn on. I removed the knobs and noticed the stem does not compress thus, no gas can come through. Please help.

You must replace those controls. Cleaning or loosening them up would be temporary at best and the next time they stick it could be in the open position. Safety first...Eric

Neff T22S46NOAU gas cooktop. Gas to burners on one side only reduced. Flame barely visible. What is the problem. Can I fix it myself?


take off the flame spreaders and soak them overnight in kitchen detergent and water. Change the water and boil it for 10 minutes. Put under the cold tap and them scrub with a pot brush into all of the holes. Rinse, dry and replace.

If that doesn't work, you need a registered gas engineer.

Control knob doesnt adjust flame height?


Use a manometer to insure lp gas pressure is correct. The regulator for the stove may need adjusting. The air mixture adjustment may not be correct for PL as well.

Spill water on cook top by gas knobs. now the igniter is clicking on all the time with the knobs in the off position


Each of the knobs has a little white rotary switch on it's shaft below the cooktop. You've likely got water in one of those switches and it's making the connection in the switch to start the igniter circuit. Unplug/turn off the breaker to the unit. If it's just water and not a sauce or noodle water or something else impure, you may be able to let it dry out without too much trouble. You could try pulling off the knobs and sucking at the openings with a wet/dry vac to try to get more water out of the switches. The worry is corrosion from being wet too long. If it isn't working after drying out, you'll need a new set of switches. http://www.appliancepartspros.com/part_details.aspx?part_id=3185909

My GE Profile JPG636 cooktop has an ignitor problem. It clicks constantly, and all the ignitors on all 5 burners are 'going off'. It happens every 8 or 10 seconds whether we're cooking or not. If anyone...


The most common cause for this issue is from liquid getting into the ignition system for the range. If someone has spilled water or other liquids into the burner knobs or the ignition system it will cause an electrical short in the system causing the igniters to come on constantly when the knobs are off. The fix to this is to unplug the range and wait 24 hours for the liquids to dry up. You can speed up this process with a hair dryer pointed at the burner stems(knobs removed). Once the liquids have dried up the problem should stop. I would not leave it plugged in until then because the ignition system could be damaged from the constant sparking.

Viking gas cooktop vgsu161-6b sparks continuously. There is no gas leaking. I spilled water on the controls and it is only when I turn on the 3rd knob from the top that this happens.


The water that you spilled onto the cooktop has shorted out the ignition switch in the gas control knob. Don't worry though no permanent damage has been done. Leave it unplugged from the electrical outlet for a day or two until the liquid dries out. You can manually light the burners with matches or a BBQ lighter in the meantime. If you want to try and speed up the drying process you can use a hair dryer.

Burners/Heat


make sure you have the correct orifices, make sure you have good gas pressure and make sure pressure regulator is ok.
also if the unit has been in service for a while check the orifice for build up a wire or needle will work to knock out any build up

Sounds like you got water into the ignitor switches on under the knobs. Sometimes it takes 48 hours for this to dry out. Or you can pull the knobs and use a hair dryer on to dry out the switches. Personally I just advise pulling the plug and wait. This is a common issue with gas cooktops and can also happen with liberal use of cleaning products sprayed in the know area.
