Jenn-Aire Model CVG4380 gas stove top. Why doesn't igniter work?


Hi,

Under your knobs are burner switches, 3 of them are the same, so this will be a hit and miss on getting them but possible. Each burner should trigger the ignition system. This will be needed to be inspected to find out which one needs to be replace. If you get the right person to look over the unit they could tell you if it can be repaired. I worked on one about 3 years ago and it worked out fine. Good Luck and I hope this helped.

Front burner does not light and has no spark. Do I change the ignitor and if so, how is this done?


The spark switch attached to the gas valve is bad, but usually you have to replace the complete switch string. Yes, you are right, all the switches are wired in parallel, and all the ignitors spark at the same time, so if you get 1 burner sparking, they will all spark, and now you can turn on the gas valve with the bad switch, and it will light too. (That's your cheapest and easiest solution!)

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.

I have a gas glass cook top (JGC9536) with a problem at the right front surface burner (12,500 btu). I used to be able to just turn the switch on high and the burner would light. Now, there is spark and...


Make sure there is no blockage of the burner near where the spark jumps. All it takes is a drop of water to stop the gas flow near the spark. Most likely you can use a knife or some other thin blade to clear the slots where the flame comes out of the burner.

Hi,

You are correct, on most Kitchen Aid units the switches come as an assembly of all 4 with the wiring, I would have to have your exact model number to be sure but most often you cannot replace just the one switch.

My whirlpool range ss630per-1 burners will ignite except of front right which give no ignitor sound at all, but the Rear Right works fine. any solutions?


Each burner control knob has a built-in switch that controls the igniter. It appears the front right burner switch in the knob is possibly defective. They are replaceable but it requires dis-assembly of the range front. Are all the igniters in a sequence? Have you tried turning the front right burner on while another burner has the igniter on. This may let you ignite the burner automatically. When you have another burner igniter clicking try turning on that burner. If the range has rectification igniters that will not work.

Burners not lighting


You have one or more spark switches defective or a loose wire to the switches.
They are located on each gas valve stem.
Yes they should be replaced for safety.
In the interim you can match light the surface burners.

Stove burner igniter does not work.


Your problem is not the igniter itself, but the burner switch that controls the igniter. All the igniters get their power from one spark module that is mounted somewhere in back of the oven. That's why you are able to get all the igniters to spark with only one burner control turned on. This is normal. That is also why you are able to light the burner in question buy turning on another burner. The spark is being provided by a switch that is working. To answer your question: the igniter is removable, but I don't think it's necessary. Cleaning them generally doesn't make them work better. I would check the wiring from the spark module to the burner switch and/or replace the switch. I hope this helps.
