If you don't have any temperature control, the switches probably need to be replaced.

My left front burner was turned off for almost half hour but remained hot. the hot surface light was still lit. I had to throw my main breaker to turn it off. What could be my problem


Sounds like the thermostat on that burner gas gone. When you switched the breaker back on, did the burner get warm after being cold? If so, you need a new controller. They are easy to change if you can get to the back of the unit. Make sure you turn off the breaker and physically remove the plug.

Rear burner will not get hot


Call the manufacturer or retailer you bought it from. Sounds like the the burner is damaged or the connection from the burner to the electrical source is damaged. If either is damaged, the company will replace it.

Large burner elements ignite, and igniter spark fails to stop, then the burner shuts off as if ignition failed. Tiny central burner element does NOT light at any time. Apparently the safety cutoff...


There is a thermistor that must be in the flame area that needs to get hot. When hot it will turn the igniter off and keep the flame on. Check it's location and if it is in the flame then it needs to be replaced. not sure about the central flame problem. could be the switch.

Burner light stays on


Hi,

This is caused by a faulty sensor that is located between the burner element and the top. To replace the faulty part you will need to uninstall the cooktop and remove the glass top. The sensor is a rod a little smaller than a pencil that you will see right on top of that burner.

If you choose not to replace the sensor it will not cause any issues other than you will have to live with that light constantly on and you will know when the top is hot for that element.

One of the burners on my Jenn-Air electric cooktop does not turn on and get hot. 3 burners do work. Any suggestions?


the contact may be loose but most likely the burner needs to be replaced. the one you use the most usually goes first, and not getting hot enough is the common indicater of a shot burner
