Ignition sparking repeatedly

The oven ignition keeps sparking when the oven is lit, especially on low sttings I've a Jenn-Air gas stove top model JGC8430BDS. No matter what burner I use, the largest burner in the right rear quadrant sparks and continues to spark until all is turned off on the unit. It even sparks once when the Vent-a-hood is turned on and off (it's on the same circuit). The stove top hadn't worked for about a year as the circuit it was connected to shorted out while I was in Iraq. I've rewired the electrical source to include the grounding. How can I repair this sparking burner? None of the other burners spark unless call to do so by turning them on...just this one renegade. It sparks with all burner combinations including itself. Dave

My Jenn Air Electric stove is making a clicking noise. When I put my hand on one of the cook top knobs I can actually feel a vibration when the click occurs. What is this?


Gas stove? LP? It is probably the electric spark ignitor. Many times when you clean the stove top water from the sponge gets below. The water droplets (align mysteriously) make the connection between the wires, and the stove thinks it's supposed to be igniting. When the water evaporates, the switch will work fine again & the clicking should only occur when igniting & then backed off.

This happened to me once before.

Jen-Air Gas range Igniter keeps clicking but not starting fire


01/26/09 My wife decided to give our Jenn-Air a good cleaning. With lot's of soapy warm water she pulled the knobs off and washed under each of them not realizing excess water was now running down the inside of each control knob shaft. The igniter immediately began clicking away as it was being shorted by the conductance of the water now inside of the switch. I had to remove the cover (2-screws) to access the control switches but that is all I needed to do do in order to have clear access. Using her hair dryer it took about 5 minutes of warm air blowing down each of the shafts until the water evaporated and the clicking stopped. Wahla. The old Jenn-Air is back to working order again.

Keeps clicking after lit


your ignition button is sticking down after you press it to light the burners, give it a few taps and clean underneath the button.

Try carefully cleaning around the ignitors. Also clean hole in burners. Clean the holes closest to ignitors. This can be caused by a crack in ignitor, this requires replacement.

Igniter will not turn off once burners are lit.


I've had the same problem for 2 years. Today I removed the four burner tops, the 15/16 inch bolt that holds the burners in place, took everything apart (simple connections underneath), completely cleaned and dried eveything. I also cleaned the 4 knobs and making sure the 4 swiches slide up and down freely then dried everything with a hairdryer. Is now works fine but if the problem comes back, I'll simply unplug the cooktop and light it manually. P.S. I stripped one of the large 5/16 inch bolt that had become weak and brittle. - Try using water or some liquid to loosen the bolts as necessary. Good luck, CHEERS!
