If you can disconnect the power to the cook-top then do so..this will give you a little peace of mind...it seems like the switch for that burner is defective(eg: stuck in on position)..the switch is an integral part of the control that turns on the gas for the burner..you may need to replace the control assembly..these are available from appliance parts stores and on-line
I just went thru this problem. There are TWO possible switch replacement parts. one is 12002422 and was my correct replacement number.
12002125 was the WRONG part..would not work no matter how you wired it. the failed switch being replaced was part number 7403p406-60. 7403p851-60 will NOT work.
my serial # was 12284711qz
call Jen air customer support and give your serial # and switch part # to get the correct part and diagram... Jenn air changed parts and wiring in the middle of a run.
the unit doesnt have any internal fuses. you have a house fuse blown or circuit breaker that tripped. the fan switch can be found online or from your local parts house and make sure you get the clips to hold it to the mounting tabs. next time you get ready to work on it, just make sure and turn off the power first as you will touch the metal terminals to the frame again.
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.
Glad to Help you!!
Take the knob off, them remove the cover that housed the switches, OK, Now, Look at the switch that is continiusly clicking and it will have two wires goin onto it, remove these wires and just lift the sending unit, and inspect it for water, grease etc ect....clean and dry and put back on and try again it should work, if it does not work, then just get a replacement one, they are not expensive, I just replaced two on my Jenn-Air myself and it cost me $25.00.
Hope this will help!!
1. Turn off the power at the breaker box. 2. lift off the air grill. 3. remove the two screws at the front of the control switch panel (escutcheon).. 4. slide the control panel forward until it disengages, then lift up to expose the switch assembly and wiring.
