SOURCE: jenn air range, model CVG4280B,

I do not know the cause BUT the fan behavior (on for left burners, off for right burners) is by design. The high-speed fan has two switches; 1) the primary switch visible centered between top two knobs, 2) secondary switches integrated with left burner knobs.

SOURCE: dcs gas oven/range, ignitor won't go off after burner or burners are lit

They probably cleaned the stove and in replacing the parts of the burner switched the rings on top of the burner. This happened to me. While they look alike, the round rings, not the flat disks, have to be on the right burner in order for the electron spark to ignite the gas. Good luck.

Xl44 top burners light


There are a few things that can do this... First check the burner top to make sure the holes are not blocked. 2nd, Are the other ignitors sparking? If so then try rotating the slack in the burners left and right - this works sometimes. If not then try placing a screwdriver (you holding the handle only) and touch the burner and lean the screwdriver towards the ignitor... making the spark gap smaller. If you have used the ignition without a burner in place the ignition pack will short out inside it and there will not be a spark until the gap is very small. 3rd, are the ceramic part of the ignitors cracked at the base... take care when washing as they break easy if caught on the cloth. The ignition pack works in pairs so having one work suggests the pair of this one is something in the lead if there is no spark... A huge spillover causing a short or a bad earth... check the burners are firmly in place. There is more but too much detail to post here. Good luck

Burner ignitor will not turn off after the burner lights Viking


replace the electrode that's the wire or pilot tip, it has a sensor built in, when it gets hot it stops automatically. if the electrode is between the front and rear burners, there are small holes on the burners going down on the side of the burner facing the ignition. they need to be clean. try a paper clip and insert the clip in side the holes.

Ignitor won't shut off


The Viking manual says that an ignitor that continues to try to light even after the burner has been lit indicates improper grounding, and that an electrician should be consulted.

Perhaps you could try to replace the ignitor, and see if that fixes the problem?

I have a similar age, 6-burner 36" rangetop.

Problem with getting burner to light.


All my ignitors spark when I turn one of them on. I'v been told it is normal. I had a problem before and the tech that replace the ignitor said the issues is with alignment. Try to rotate the burner a bit left or right and see if it fixes it.

Replace burner spark ignitor?


Electric igniters are usually very simple installs since they usually only come with a common and hot wire, and the igniter clips on to the burners right near the burner top for ignition. The easiest way a DIYer can do this themselves is to slowly take apart the current ignitor after lifting the top of the range up and taking note of every thing's placement. If you have the direct OEM part, then it either work or will not, based upon the fact that it's either the ignitor or the switch for it that has gone bad.

To test if your igniter has gone bad, remove it completely. (it should only be a small cylinder with two prongs, and two wires coming out the other side) Be sure not to strip any screws as heat from the oven will make them hard to remove. From there, you'll need to jump the connection on the top of the igniter with a conducting piece (ie: aluminum foil or wire), then test the common/hot wires with your circuit tester or volt meter. A solid tone or light means that your igniter is good, and the problem lies somewhere else.

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.

High performance burner slow to light


Replace that ignitor on that burner only. Not drawing enough amps to spark properly.
