I had a problem in which only one burner refused to light with the electronic ignition, even though the same ignitor (they are shared) would light the rear burner on the same side, and the problem burner would light with a match. On inspection, the spark occurs at a central point and there is a tube which apparently leads gas from each burner to the ignitor. There are two groupings of 3 holes each on the sloping part of each burner, facing toward the ignitor. After lighting both burners (the front one with a match), I saw that the lower group of 3 holes had tiny flames on the burner that worked properly, but not on the other. I carefully cleaned each of these holes with a small pin, and the problem appears to be solved.

When i try to bake on my jenn air we have no flame on lower gas tube. But starter element is glowing red .No gas getting to gas tube?


If the bake ignitor comes on (starts glowing after a few seconds) - check the amperage on the bake ignitor wires when it's on. If the ignitor is a round style - amperage should be 2.5-3A, if the ignitor is rectangular - 3 - 3.6A. If less than 2.5A or 3A respectively - replace ignitor.
Ignitor part numbers for round style ones: 4342528, WB2X9154, SGR403, 5304401265;
rectangular styles: 12400035, WB13K21, WB2X9998, SGR412, NR020, 5303935066, 814269, 9753108.
Ignitors of the same shape (i.e. rectangular) are interchangeable, if you can splice the wires.

Good luck!

My gas bake burner won't ignite.The igniter is on.Gas Range Jenn-Air model#JGS885OADW


If the bake ignitor comes on - check the amperage on the bake ignitor wires when it's on. Amperage should be 3 - 3.6A. If less than 3A - replace ignitor.
Ignitor part numbers (any will do, but the first one is a direct replacement): 12400035, WB13K21, WB2X9998, SGR412, NR020, 5303935066, 814269, 9753108.
All those are interchangeable, if you can splice the wires.

Good luck!

Problem with getting burner to light.


All my ignitors spark when I turn one of them on. I'v been told it is normal. I had a problem before and the tech that replace the ignitor said the issues is with alignment. Try to rotate the burner a bit left or right and see if it fixes it.

When I try to light my jenn air gas cook top it clicks but will not light. But it will light with a match


Your electronic ignitor is bad. You can buy a replacement ignitor where you bought your grill. Just about any hardware store will have a replacement ignitor. They are real easy to replace. There is 1 wire to the back of the ignitor. There is a retaining nut on the switch. Remove the switch and replace with new switch. Plug wire into ignitor, Turn gas on and test ignitor.

Happy Grilling
