Question about Jenn-Air JDS9865BDP Stainless Steel Dual Fuel (Electric and Gas) Kitchen Range

2 Answers

Burner controls we installed a sealed cartridge #jga9150adp, and cannot lower the flame to simmer. Burners do reduce somewhat, but not enough to simmer.

    I Have the same problem, but no adjustment screw is visible by taking off the control.

    I have the same problem... this range has been problematic since we bought it! Had the electric control panel replaced... the inner glass of the door just broke... and have always had trouble with contolling the flame on the two left burners (grill replaced with burners).

    Yikes! I would NOT buy this range!!!

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

(Guru aborcass is basically right--I saw it done as described below. If you're like me, maybe it's better to hire someone.)

I spent the better part of a year calling Jenn-Air, our appliance dealer, etc. about what to do with the fact the, on our propane-converted range, these burners do not adjust. Jenn-Air admits nothing about this, and I found their parts department completely incompetent as well as rude.

FINALLY, hired an experienced appliance repair tech who adjusted the burner intensity (a set screw behind the dial on the RANGE, not on the module), and now it works fine. Since all our burners run hot on the range, I'm going to have him do the factory installed ones on his next visit. Hope this helps those who got as frustrated with the level of ignorance by the manufacturer as I did.

Orifices burner flame adjusted


Most burners have an adjustment under the knob. Pull off the knob and use a slender flathead screwdriver. Turn burner down to low, insert screwdriver into knob shaft and rotate internal screw until flame is at "simmer" height. Can adjust each burner separately this way.

Igniter switch on top burner will not shut off


try thoroughly cleaning the burners, particularly the holes in the ring that the gas come through. The gas come through to heat the ignitor so that the ignitor knows to stop trying to light the burner ; if the holes are clogged the ignitor doesn't heat.
The burner is easily disassembled from the top by removing a thin bolt, and you can clear the holes with a paper clip.

Hello,
It would seem like reasonable thing to do.However the adjustment is typically for the low setting so you can adjust just the small flame just enough to simmer a pot without the flame going out from being so low its susuptable to going out on the low setting, also it so you can adjust the flame smaller so on low it isnt too high,causing it will boil when you intend to only simmer a dish your cooking. A question;is it all burners and have they always been that way?

Burner will not stay lit. Push in knob-- flame starts, but will not stay lit as soon as you take pressure off of the knob, no matter how long you hold the knob in. Also, on other burners, I cannot reduce...


I never even saw one of these babys. Wow what a stove. The simmer issue might be fixed by removing the knob and seeing if their is a minimum flame adjustment in the stem of the gas valve. The non lighting issue could be some sort of flame sensing device not recognizing the fire is lite, you could try holding in on the knob a little longer to allow the flame sensing device to pick up OR get a brush and clean around the ignitor. She sure is a beauty. The constant ticking is usually a stuck spark switch.
To find the one that you suspect is stuck you must remove a wire from each switch till you find that one

Dynasty gas range - orange flames


It is normal, it will disappear after a little while, when you bang on the burners, particle fell off form inside of the burners and it caused the orange flame. Yellow flame means not enough air or burner is internal clogged.

Dcs 48" gas range igniter comes back when set on low/simmer


This is not a solution but something to think about for troubleshooting.
On the DCS there are two ports that feed gas to the burner.
One for high flame and one for simmer.
On the DCS if the flame is snuffed out on simmer it will automatically reignite.
So if the igniter will not shut off while on simmer, the sensor is bad and is trying to reignite the burner.

Burner does not hold its flame on a Feather 442 stove


IF THE FLAME IS LIFTING OFF THE BURNER, THERE IS TOO MUCH AIR IN THE MIX. LOCATE THE END OF THE BURNER WHERE THE FUEL ENTERS THE BURNER. THERE SHOULD BE AN ADJUSTMENT HOOD THAT CAN BE MOVED TO PARTIALLY BLOCK THE AIR INTAKE. THIS WILL REDUCE THE AIR MIX AND SHOULD MINIMIZE THE FLAME LIFTING OFF THE BURNER.
ON SOME SEALED BURNER COOKTOPS, THE MANUFACTURER RECOMMENDS PLACING A PAN ON THE BURNER AFTER LIGHTING TO MINIMIZE FLAME LIFTING.

IF THE FLAME GOES OUT WHEN SET ON SIMMER,
THERE IS AN ADJUSTMENT SCREW IN THE SHAFT OF THE VALVE ON SOME MODELS. REMOVE THE KNOB TO GAIN ACCESS TO IT. YOU WILL HAVE TO OBTAIN A SMALL SHAFTED FLAT BLADE SCREWDRIVER TO MAKE THE ADJUSTMENT.

Burner goes out on simmer


look down the shaft of the burner valve(remove the knob). with a very thin and somewhat long screwdriver you should be able to adjust this flame, with the burner on MED hold the shaft of the valve with a pair of pliers and turn the screw slowly( you'll need to hold the shaft tightly because if not you'll be turning shaft and not adjustment screw. small increments yield big changes in flame

Gas range top burners too hot


Get the installation manual for your range, and find the part on adjusting the low heat for the burners. On my Whirlpool, I found there is an adjustment screw inside the control knob shaft of each burner. The manual says turn the burner on low, remove the knob, then turn this screw until the flames are 1/4" high. Super-easy, it took me 5 minutes to do. I am sure all ranges have similar adjustments, might be in different locations - check the manual.
