Check to see if the burners are free of deposits from carbon and grease build up. The tiny holes in the burners get clogged with grease and carbon.

Neff T22S46NOAU gas cooktop. Gas to burners on one side only reduced. Flame barely visible. What is the problem. Can I fix it myself?


take off the flame spreaders and soak them overnight in kitchen detergent and water. Change the water and boil it for 10 minutes. Put under the cold tap and them scrub with a pot brush into all of the holes. Rinse, dry and replace.

If that doesn't work, you need a registered gas engineer.

Control knob doesnt adjust flame height?


Use a manometer to insure lp gas pressure is correct. The regulator for the stove may need adjusting. The air mixture adjustment may not be correct for PL as well.

Soot deposits from my brand new downdraft jenn-air gas cooktop


Is this on LP or Natural gas? If LP was it converted to LP? In any event,The air shutter must be adjusted on the gas burner tube. You need more air. The valve orifice may also need adjusting.

Water boiled over into control knobs for the cook top elements.


Just fixed this problem and repaired the corner of the Ceran cooktop.

Disclaimer: These cooktops run on 220V and will kill you if you don't know how to work with electricity. If you're unsure, get some help.

The boiling water slopped out of your pot, and went over to your controls (knobs) and went down the shaft and into a component call "Infinity Switch". The water caused the switch internally to weld one of the two internal sets of contact points into a permanent position. The fix is to replace the
"Infinity Switch" that the boiling water spilled into. The Infinity switch is the component that the control knob slides on to.

In my cooktop one of the infinity switches failed and appears to damage the adjacent switch. Mine actually caught on fire and damaged the wiring and the connector. Hopefully you are better off. Since they were in such close proximity I replaced them both. For $20 you might consider the same. I replaced both to be safe and they were $21.47 each.

My cooktop has 4 elements 2 small, 1 large and 1 combined (small and large) surface. A large element was definitely damaged and possibly a small element. I ordered both. I mention this in case a multi-element was damaged on your cooktop.

You will need to contact either Jenn-Air or someone. Since you can't see an exploded parts list online, you'll have to use the schematic. It is in a plastic sleeve and it stuck to the side of the ventilator housing underneath the cooktop.

When you wire the new part in, make sure you have the wiring correct or when you turn it back on you will burn up the new part.

I hope this helps.

When the large burner is on, it keeps trying to ignite


Check that the burner orifice nozzle (the round thing that comes off) is properly seated on the burner manifold. Mine have a tab that must interlock.

Make sure all your burner orifices are CLEAN. Scrub them with a plastic kitchen scrubber, soap and water.

The way this works is, when a burner is turned on, the sensing mechanism for the spark control reads the ionization of the flame. No flame, no ionization, keep sparking so gas buildup is minimal in the area before a flame is ignited. )Kinda like the spark thingy's underneath the shuttle, without the ionization sensor's, just before it launches.).

Flame on gas hob not correct.


I'm not sure what you mean by a proper efficient flame. I just recently went through an experience I'll relate to you here. I purchased a GE Profile dual fuel range. I can get more specific if you'd like but here's the point. The highest burner on the range was rated at 17000 BTU's. A friend recommended the range to me and sang it's praises. I took delivery of my new toy and couldn't wait to get a pot on the stove to start cooking a long wait for pasta. Twenty minutes later I was finally seeing bubbles! I spilled the water out and measured 12 cups of water into the pasta pot at room temperature. That's three quarts of water. 20 minutes to see bubbles and never would it come to the expected "rolling boil". My experience has always been with electric ranges and I am new to gas but 20 minutes? Something had to be wrong, right? Wrong! Much research later I've found it is common for natural gas to LP conversion stoves to lose a good deal of their oumph when converted. GE as it turns out is one of the most notorious for a serious degredation in BTU output. After exploring GE's site I found that this same stove running under LP gas is rated(for the highest burner) at 11000 BTU's! No wonder I couldn't boil water! Back to the store it went and I am still in search of a stove that will meet my needs. Don't know if this will help you or if this is the same issue you are dealing with but maybe just maybe. Good luck!
