Just had this problem today on our seven or eight year old Jenn-Air cooktop. When using the front right burner all ignitors would continue to fire until I turned off the burner. The three other burners worked correctly. After trying all the obvious soulutions w/o success I pulled off that burners control knob and the rubber seal which exposed the valve. Their was a bunch of crud in there. I put a small (one inch) paint brush in there and vigorusly loosened all the crud. I then inserted the nozzle of our central vac - which just happened to fit perfectly - and sucked all the stuff out. I repeated the proceedure a couple more times, reassembled the knob and started the burner. Worked just perfectly!!! YMMV. Good luck.

SOURCE: Jenn-Air JGC8536 Gas Cooktop ignitor replacement

One burner doesn't consistently light. Igniter sparks but not the same as the other - "good" burners spark at top of igniter and moves around to light, "bad" burner sparks toward the bottom and doesn't move much. I can use the burner by lighting with a match and it works fine. Have tried cleaning with a toothbrush without much success

WHAT DO I USE TO CLEAN AN ELECTRIC JENN-AIR CERAMIC COOKTOP; THE BURNT FOOD BUILDUP.


a good product is CERAMABRYTE. it is designed for ceramic cooktops and is a white lotion type cleaner. if there is a lot of burned buildup you may also need to purchase a special scraper with a blade in it. but make sure you smear the cleanser on FIRST or you will scratch the surface.

What's best tu glue my cooktop on my granite countertop?


I don't think I'd glue it down permenantly. I just had to replace the ceramic glass on mine (a JED 8430 ABD) after it cracked. Thankfully, it wasn't glued down so I could replace it pretty easily (ordered part directly from Jenn Air). But some sort of seal to keep food out from under the cooktop would be nice. I just wouldn't go permenant. The fact that you have to tape the down draft to the external vent should keep the cooktop in one place (plus its own weight).

Burner fails to ignite


I have this cooktop and it is hands-down the worst. That clicking sound is the spark missing the mark because of a crack or chip in the ceramic igniter. Damage is caused by the ceramic heating too quickly. Especially when the house is cooler in winter, or in air conditioning. I had a Jenn Air repair guy in to replace them before the warranty ran out and he said this happens with every single one of these models with the ceramic igniter. Also, one of the knobs on the front by the medium burner got so hot it melted. He gave us a new one. He had a whole box of them in his truck! He told us the design was inferior and that Jenn Air uses a different igniter for higher end models because of this problem, but won't re-engineer the lower end units because it's cost prohibitive. Even with the repairs they cover for the first year, they recoup in charging for service the second year, than profit on the repair and/or replacement charges for the parts every year after that. All the parts sold are OEM--no after markets, so, at roughly $27 a pop for each igniter, they make out pretty good. Oh, and the burner knob is melted again. What a bunch of scamsters. I will never give them my money again and am shopping for a new cooktop. I left a good review at bizrate for this cooktop.
