Question about Jenn-Air JDR8895AAS Dual Fuel (Electric and Gas) Kitchen Range

My burner gets excessively hot very quickly is this normal?

My front right burner gets excessively hot fast, and caused a fire a few days ago. I was able to put it out without too much damage. Today just for kicks I took a leftover pot of soup directly from the fridge and placed it on the burner on high, and within 4 minutes my soup was boiling. Is this normal?

Hi,

That right front burner is an extremely hot burner by design. It is sold as a quick power burner. The rating on it is 12,000 btu's meaning it could easily boil a pot of soup in that time.

Here is a quote from the owners manual for your range

"There is a 12,000 BTU*
burner located in the right front position. These burners offer
higher speed cooking that can be used to quickly bring water
to a boil and for large-quantity cooking."

Use the back for slower smaller cooking and front for larger and quick heating.

I hope that helps.

It sounds as if the burners may not be properly seated on the valves. Instead of all of the gas flowing into the burners, some of the gas is escaping behind the front panel and creating a fire behind the front panel which would heat the valve shafts and melt the knob inserts. This call also be caused by partially blocked burner venturi and valve orifices.

Check to make sure the end of each valve is completely inside of each burner.

The flames on our pitco frialator (40lbs) are not suctioning through the tunnels and is burning an orange flame out the front of the burners instead. We are mobile unit with two 100lb tanks. We clean the...


The flame is restricted to flow inside fire tubes, make sure that all fire tubes are free of soot/ carbon deposit. There should be no air flowing (hood fresh air or any ventilation) or entering the flue box because this will cause the flame to roll back to burners. Also, make sure that the unit receives the right amount of gas pressure as specified in the nameplate, this will surely eliminate carbon build up on fire tubes and burners.

Since you are having problems with multiple elements the problem is probably the circuit board that controls them. This can be ordered and replaced. Be sure to unplug the stove before getting into the circuit board though.

The right front burner will not get hot. It is only warm never hot. The burner doesn't turn bright red even when tuned up on high.


hello, try changing that front element(burner)if its easily removable to another side that is working normal. If the element is still dull not heating or glowing normal then replace the element, but if it does, then there is something wrong with the front right element switch or the receptacle.

The burners are off but the front two keep clicking


The most common cause for this problem is when the range is cleaned with excessive water and water gets into the burner control knobs it causes the igniter switches to short out and click non-stop. If you have recently cleaned the range you might have that problem. You will need to disconnect the power to the range for 24 hours until the water dries up. There is also a condition called "ghost spark" and it is caused by an electrical plug that has reverse polarity. Ghost spark can be similar to the problem you are describing but the clicking will not be fast but instead slower than normal. And finally there could be a broken igniton switch in a burner control knob that is causing the constant clicking.

Front burner slow in lighting on jenn-air stove top. All other burners light quickly. Could it be the ignighter? Can I switch out ignighters with a back burner that we seldom use?


Yes, it most likely is the ignitor. Chances are it simply needs to be cleaned (ignitor, burner etc.)

If cleaning it does not solve the problem, I reccomend replacing it with a new one.

A malfunction of that type causes gas buildup and can result in excessive ignition when it finally does light. As they get worse, they litterally create mini explosions and can become fire hazzards.

For that reason I reccomend that you do not use that ignitor on any burner with such a malfunction.

You should be able to find a new ignition assembly at your local appliance parts warehouse, or by calling the manufacturer.

Burner dosent get as hot as the others


If you saw a spark from the burner chances are that the burner has shorted out and is in need of replacement.
