The outer ring of the element is most likely broken. You'll need to replace the element.

I'm having the same problem with my jec9530. The dual burner just quit working one day. I called jennair and they sent me a replacement "custom control" for free. 6 months later it quit again. I am now considering attempting to put an infinite switch (dual), part #PS786568 in its place. It is not electronic, and it looks like it is used for the jec9536 middle back dual burner. It is only $35, even if it doesn't work like the electronic one I don't care. My wife usually only uses both burners at the same time anyway.

There are a series of holes in the burner leading down from the main flame area to the pilot tube, ensure the holes are not plugged/restricted.
