Question about Jenn-Air JGS9900BDS Stainless Steel Gas Kitchen Range

1 Answer

Ignitors click I just got this range a few weeks ago. I've noticed lately when use one or more of the burners, I'll see and hear the other burners ignition clicking. There's no pattern to it and we double check to make sure the burners not in use are in the off position and the burners in use are not set to light the burner. For example, I might have the left rear on medium and I'll see and hear the ignitor for the right front burner clicking like it wants to fire it up. Even though the knob is in the off position. Wondering if this is something that needs adjusting or if the auto sensing flame ignition thing is out of whack. Any suggestions would be appreciated.

    thanks for replying. the problem is that the clicking continues until we are done with the burners. last night we boiled water on one of the burners, yet all the other burner ignitors were clicking the whole time we boiled water....we made sure that the other burners were in the off position. any other thoughts?

    thanks again for replying, i appreciate it. could there be any other cause? this has been happening for the last 10 days or so. we thought it was just something that would go away since it was brand new. but we haven't really had the need to wash it yet, just a cloth across the cook top is all, no water or excessive moisture in or on the burners themselves. ?????

    We're having the same problem as Matt Thomas. We just bought our range last week. Model is different, Jenn-Air JGS8860BDP. The service tech says this is a gas pressure problem. Since Matt is having the same problem, I think its a Jenn-Air problem!

    it is a jenn air problem. service for 1.5 years and no solution. they have checked the gas pressure, changed the ignitors, changed the plates. Tech says because I am high altitude but don't think that is it either. Mine is when i put on the double burner.. I also have broiler problem and fan for convection. They are going to replace. mine is a double burner. The model I see now says triple burner. does anyone have a triple burner that still has this problem? best solution for 1 year was to shave down near where ignites and turn cap upside down and not turn to full btu for power boiling. This helped for awhile but started failing again

Ignitor keeps clicking

I have the same problem, believe it's a bad potentiometer on the two left extra low burners. The other four use a micro switch that you can hear click when you turn the knob. My problem is can't figure out how to remove control panel.

Burners turn on sometimes as does the oven but then may not turn off

Hello, when you turn on one of the burner, can you hear some clicking while you turn on one of the burners? This is an electric ignitor, and when you turn one burner on all the burner ignitor will click.

It is possible, that you are turning your burners on the stove to quick. Take a look at one of knobs and you will see ignition--low---medium---high. To get the burning ignited the knob needs to be position at the ignition site. You'll hear it click-click-click and the burner will ignite.

Now, the oven. The oven ignitor is on a time delay. You will push the bake button and across the screen will say something like this "Please set oven temperature" You'll set the oven temperature to---let say 350 degrees---. Then the screen will say "push start button" then you push the start button to turn your oven on. Now, the screen will say "pre" this means that the oven is pre-heating the oven to your desired temperature. Before all this happens there is ignitor in the oven and it has a heater on the ignitor in oven. This heater will heat up to desired temperature and once it reaches the that temperature the ignitor will ignite and the gas will turn on.

Why--one would say for this procedure. The old kitchen stoves had a very bad habit of of flash over---that is gas will built up in the over and once the pilot light ignited the gas---wussh and it blow the oven door open. These ovens would sometimes huff too.

Therefore, take your time and your biscuit will be OK



I am sorry Sandan2. I didn't finish reading your question. Never mind on what I said here.

If the burners will not shut off sometimes, then there could a gas regulator problem.

One very important question. Is your kitchen stove using Natural Gas or LPG--liquid Petroleum Gas?

If it is using either type of fuel as mention above. It is very important that you contact Appliance repair person that is certified by the state that you live in that he/she is license by the state to work with gas appliances.

I wish you luck, but it very it important that you contact a certified Technician... Also, move the stove away from the wall and look behind it. There a black gas pipe and at the end is a brass valve, Take wrench and turn the gas valve off. The gas valve will have a stainless steel flex line attached to it, and the other end is to your stove. Don't use your stove.

If those gas burners and the oven are leaking gas. There is possibility to blow you and your family with your home up. Don't use the stove, Until you have it check out...please. GB you/your family...stewbison

Oven wont light unless you turn on a stove eye and


Sound`s to me you need a new hot surface ignitor. Sorry to hear you may have changed the valve & regulator for nothing, but that happen`s quite often when you get the symptom`s you`ve described, I`ve even seen tech`s. do it. The reality is 9 times out of 10 when a hot surface ignition gas/lpg oven won`t light it is the ignitor.

Pick up part number 74007498 for approx. $40 and you`ll be cooking.

Hope that help`s. If so please take a second and rate the solution I provided here at fixya for you.

Good luck.

Oven igniter problem

Find the bake ignitor (you may need to remove bottom drawer or oven cavity floor to get to the ignitor). Turn on the bake. If the bake ignitor comes on (starts glowing after a few seconds) - check the amperage on the bake ignitor wires when it's on. Amperage should be 2.5-3A. If less than 2.5A - replace ignitor. If the ignitor does not come on - check the voltage on the ignitor, should be the line voltage 110-120v AC. If there is a line voltage on the ignitor and it's not coming on - replace.
Ignitor part numbers : WB2X9154, 4342528, SGR403, 5304401265;

Those ignitors are interchangeable, if you can splice the wires. If not comfortable splicing wires - replace it with the first one in the list, should be direct replacement.

Good luck!

KGST307HBS9 - Burner ignitor not clicking

there is a switching contactor that works in parallel with all of the switches. so if you want you can give that burner gas and use another burners switch. To fix you need to take of the front panel and ether replace the harnes

or fix it usually the spring like copper contacter is just streaches a little further than it should and is not making contact
