Question about Jenn-Air Kitchen Ranges

Open Question

The stainless top of my Jenn Air PRG4810LP range has warped under the simmer burner base allowing flames to escape near the front and back where the burner base sits on the range top. Is this common? Jenn Air tells me it is not a warranty issue, I don't know how I could have caused the metal to warp! Also, the ingiter will start to click constantly after it has been on for a minute or so. Thank you Michele, Lillington,NC

SOURCE: Viking range - no way to simmer

There is a conversion kit to convert the range from natural gas to propane, it is possible that it was not installed or not installed at the time of purchase. There is a part in the regulator that has to be switched from one gas type to another as well as individual burner orafices that have to be changed. You should have the point of purchase service verify that this has been done correctly. The complete information should be in your owners and installation manual or available directly from the viking website.

SOURCE: gas range top burners too hot

Get the installation manual for your range, and find the part on adjusting the low heat for the burners. On my Whirlpool, I found there is an adjustment screw inside the control knob shaft of each burner. The manual says turn the burner on low, remove the knob, then turn this screw until the flames are 1/4" high. Super-easy, it took me 5 minutes to do. I am sure all ranges have similar adjustments, might be in different locations - check the manual.

SOURCE: Clicking noise on cooktop even when all burners ignite

I have a viking gas cooktop. The ignitor on one of my front burners wouldn't stop clicking even after the flame ignited. I swapped that ignitor with the ignitor from a back burner, expecting that the problem was with the ignitor and that the back burner would start to click incessantly, but at least I'd have my favorite front burner for use. Instead, the front burner was then only clicking 50% of the time and the back burner was fine, suggesting the problem was related to the burner not the ignitor. I pulled the front ignitor a bit away from the burner and now it is working normally. Hope this helps.

SOURCE: jbl distortion! frame warped?

Nope. WE have about 50 of these with no problems. Please describe the type of distortion that you have. It may be as simple as a bad transistor in the power amp.

Frigidaire stove burner not working


There is an allen head adjustment screw under the burner so you can adjust your burner fuel. It is adjusted too far and is going back to the simmer level. Just find the right size allen wrench and turn it to the lefft and adjust it to the proper setting.

Orifices burner flame adjusted


Most burners have an adjustment under the knob. Pull off the knob and use a slender flathead screwdriver. Turn burner down to low, insert screwdriver into knob shaft and rotate internal screw until flame is at "simmer" height. Can adjust each burner separately this way.

call in a gas fitter as the jets for the propane are probably incorrect.

Dcs 48" gas range igniter comes back when set on low/simmer


This is not a solution but something to think about for troubleshooting.
On the DCS there are two ports that feed gas to the burner.
One for high flame and one for simmer.
On the DCS if the flame is snuffed out on simmer it will automatically reignite.
So if the igniter will not shut off while on simmer, the sensor is bad and is trying to reignite the burner.

Top burners spark intermittently with burner valves shutoff


Remove the burner caps (where the gas and flame come out) and wash in warm soapy water, using a plastic toothbrush like brush to scrub thoroughly.

Also clean/scrub the burner bases and ignition knob on the top of the cooktop.

When you reassemble, make sure the burner caps are properly seated in the burner bases.

Downdraft Slide-In Range


I have the radiant cooktop (i.e., glass top) version of this range. I've had this same problem since I first purchased this unit. I wondered why no one answered this question, as I check back to see from time to time. I finally contacted Jenn-Air's online support. My conversation was as follows (I'm not entirely sure that the tech support knew what she was talking about, but here you go anyway):

message.gif?p_db_name=whirlpool Cidalia C: Hi, my name is Cidalia C. How may I help you?
message.gif?p_db_name=whirlpool You: Hello!
message.gif?p_db_name=whirlpool You: I have a question regarding my "Downdraft Radiant Cooktop"
message.gif?p_db_name=whirlpool Cidalia C: Thank you for contacting Jenn-Air today with your inquiry. What is your question please?
message.gif?p_db_name=whirlpool You: None of my burners can simmer-- no matter what the setting, they will boil water!
message.gif?p_db_name=whirlpool You: Is there an adjustment that can be made to attenuate the heat?
message.gif?p_db_name=whirlpool Cidalia C: What is the model number of your cook top please
message.gif?p_db_name=whirlpool You: JED8430ADB
message.gif?p_db_name=whirlpool Cidalia C: Thank you. In looking at your burner configuration, the smallest wattage on your unit is 1200. And, unfortunately, there is no way to get a small wattage for your burners. We apologize for the inconvenience.
message.gif?p_db_name=whirlpool You: Yes, but the dials are supposed to prevent the full 1200 watts from reaching the burner unless it's on maximum heat, correct?
message.gif?p_db_name=whirlpool Cidalia C: Yes, but the burners do not get low enough to be considered simmer burners.
message.gif?p_db_name=whirlpool Cidalia C: Did you have any other questions or concerns today?
message.gif?p_db_name=whirlpool You: I suppose not.
message.gif?p_db_name=whirlpool Cidalia C: Thank you for contacting Jenn-Air. Have a good day!

Ignitor would not turn off on front left burner


Same problem with the ignitors on the burners myself.  But only when i turn on the left side burners do they continually spark.  Any one know what ignition module on this?  How does it prove flame?  To ground?  Might I have a bad ground causing it to not rectify the flame?

Burner controls


if you remove the knobs from the unit nad look closely doen the shaft of the protruding valve stem you should be able to see a slot for a regular screwdriver to fit down, its gonna have to be long adn thin but that is the flame adjustment screw,
put the flame down to low and use a pair of pliers to hold the valve stem from turning as you try to adjust the screw, turn it very slowly you seel an adjustment happen (dont really know if its counter clockwise or clockwise, but youll figure it out playin gwith it for a bit, just remember to hold the shaft from turnig, and although your turninf the valve down to simmer it does not afffect the high setting

Burner goes out on simmer


look down the shaft of the burner valve(remove the knob). with a very thin and somewhat long screwdriver you should be able to adjust this flame, with the burner on MED hold the shaft of the valve with a pair of pliers and turn the screw slowly( you'll need to hold the shaft tightly because if not you'll be turning shaft and not adjustment screw. small increments yield big changes in flame
