Question about Jenn-Air 36 in. CCGP2720P Gas Cooktop

1 Answer

Electric ignitor does not work at all on Jenn-Air Gas cooktop

The electric ignitor is not working on any of the burners. We must light them with a match or BBQ lighter. At first the problem was sporadic. Now the ignitor just doesn't work (no clickety click sound) at all, ever.

The cooktop is 9 years old. Does the entire ignitor unit need to be replaced or is there some adjustment needed?

How to start the self-cleaning cycle in jenn-air sce30600?


An electric cooktop uses a great deal more electrical energy than a gas cooktop. The electric portion of the gas cooktop runs the electronics (clock, timer, ignitor, oven light, etc.), and these are small electrical loads. An electric cooktop uses more electrical energy cooking a batch of, say, pasta sauce, than a gas cooktop would normally use in a month or two. There just isn't a good comparison as there is such a broad difference in the electrical usage of the two units.

Gas Jenn Air Cooktop Issue with Electric Starter


Did you spill water near/on knobs? if so leave to dry out for 24 hours. If still clicking after 24 hours one of the switches has shorted out and needs to be replaced. You can find which one with a multi meter/condinuity test. Hope this helps...Good Luck

Two of five cooktop burners fail to light


you can try to scratch the area where it grounds to with a wire brush or screw driver this will help sometimes. sometimes when it archs down try tighten the screws to lift up the ignitors into the hole better. or if this doesn't work replace the ignitors.

Jenn-Air JGC8536 Gas Cooktop ignitor replacement


One burner doesn't consistently light. Igniter sparks but not the same as the other - "good" burners spark at top of igniter and moves around to light, "bad" burner sparks toward the bottom and doesn't move much. I can use the burner by lighting with a match and it works fine. Have tried cleaning with a toothbrush without much success

Is it clicking? No...bad switch. Yes...check ignitor gap on that burner. The gap or the wiring is bad if it doesn't work.
