Question about Kitchen Ranges

2 Answers

I have a Jenn-Air counter top (down draft) gas range. I just noticed that one of my burners would not turn on. The stem appeared to be frozen. However, I was able to get it to turn a couple of times, but it did not turn easily. I didn't want to force it, but I can't seem to get it to turn at all now.

    It's the left rear on the grill side. It appears that all of the burner valves work the same way.

    The burner lights when I can get the stem to turn. The problem is I can't get the stem to turn.

The 'stem' as you say, is most likely gunked up with grease, etc. you can either try to clean it out with long swabs(only partially effective) or you 'll need to replace that whole assembly.

nods to Micromaster for his good approach

    thanks for the vote...you might want to consider cleaning all of them, at the same time..be careful not to soak them or immerse them under water.

Which burner got the problem?

    Have you done some double check of the unit or have you investigate or monitor it by yourself, which you have noticed aside from the 1 burner doesn't ignite.



    Any other info.aside from the fact.

    It's your better option to replaced the gas igniter, it's to risky if you self service or fabricate anything just to make the burners fire-up. Possibly may cause such danger.



    Can you provide me the model and type of the unit, i,m kinda specify which i would start to trace solutions.

If the front left also does not light normally, my best guess would be that the wires for the front left and right rear are crossed and the insulation may have fried. Besides that possibility, I have no clue.

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

Older 6 burner wolf commercial range ignition problem.


If it were the gas regulator, existing flames would go down as more burners are turned on.

There are set screws on the pilot fittings that come out of the manifold, you could try turning those Counter-clockwise to turn the pilots up. (Don't loosen them all the way, they will fall out!) If that doesn't work chances are the pilot stems will have to be replaced to get a higher pilot flame.
