Question about Jenn-Air JGD8130 Gas Cooktop
I have lost the ability to use the electric ignition on the grill side of the unit.
When cleaning it one time, I notice a small black metal ring fall off and hit the floor. Upon looking it over, it has two small fins, of which it looks like one broke off (it looks corrosion or rust contributed to this). However, I found where it went, and place it back where in the middle of the sealed burner component. It fit and I could get it to lite again. However, we hired a new household cleaning staff, and upon their cleaning -- it looks like the made the same mistake I did, but discarded the black ring. Now the only way I can get it to lite -- is with a grill lighter.
Can anyone help me identify this part -- if it can be purchased separately or if this is one of those items where the entire component has to be replaced. Seems like a simple part. Just need to know as the cleaners will purchase a replacement for me.
I have scanned both the installation guide and UG, and there were no breakdown of parts to give a better description or part number.

Yes. Buy a burner module. Sears sells them also most appliance part stores. (I am assuming you have the model with 2 knobs on the grill side) The electric version of burner modules is around $100 Gas should be similar price.

It sounds like you have a short. Replace the switch is very simple. Here are the Owners Manual and the Instalation Instructions.

SOURCE: broke glass on electric genn-air
Please do not use the stove if the element is viable because of broken glass, this could become a danger to yourself.
Look at the cost of a new stove, you should be able to get one for
around 400.00. One of my customers had a glass top with 4 burners,
they had the same thing happen, the cost to replace the top was
1,200.00. So I would assume that you can get a new stove with 4
burners less then it would cost to replace the part on a stove you don't like. Maybe there is a LOWES around you to look at stoves,
they seem to be everywhere,like death and taxes.
As for putting a 4 burner top on a stove that has 2 with grill, I don't think it can be done without the extra cost of adding the parts to run the other 2 burners, so like I said in the long run,it just might be cheaper to but a new stove. It should not be a big deal to remove the exhaust from the grill part of the stove.
I looked at the model# you put down,and it does not have a grill,
from what I see, there are 4 burners and a downdraft vent in between the 4 burners, there are 6 models with this part # and none have a grill,only the downdraft vent.
If the model# is right, the cost would be around 300.00 for the glass, and then the cost of having it replaced. So I would say over
400.00, In which case for the same amount you could have a new one, but you must weigh the difference for yourself and see what you think is the best way to go.
If you have any more questions,please post back and everyone is more than willing to help you. I hope I have helped a little.

There has got to be an interlock that is actuated by inserting the grill into the cooktop. That interlock switch or sensor is probably stuck closed and still is sending the signal to the stove that the grill is being operated, not the burner cartridge. Pull the burners out, insert the grill back into the cooktop a few times feeling for interference or something not seating right. When you find the interlock or sensor, inspect it to see if it is hung up, clean it, adjust it, or tap it lightly. If the switch/sensor is operating properly, reinsert the burners, make sure the fan is turned off, and operate them, checking to see if the fan is now off. If not, there is either a faulty sensor or a fault in the signal line to the control board or in the board itself. But a hung up interlock is what I would be looking for first. Good luck.
