    I replaced the whole burner asy with the factory cermaic spark, part # 74007735, the old burner asy had a corded screw which held the cermaic spark, so I ordered the whole asy, burner and cermaic spark.

    When I plug the 110 vt in all 4 of the top burners start sparking, when I turn the gas on the one I replaced all works fine, the other 3 stop sparking, but when I turn off the gas, they all start sparking. So I am getting spark to all burners, I not sure what to do from here.

    I replaced the main burner asy and the electrode with a factory replacement.



    As you said I waited till the next morning ,pluged the unit in and everything worked fine. So something was wet.



    I am not sure what switch u are refering too, that gets wet and needs drying out. Is it the gas on control switch or is there another switch near the burner?



    thanks

Hi,
The switch in that main burner is bad and is causing the ignition to stay on....you will also have to replace that one burner switch.

Hello & Welcome to FixYa

The problem seems to be with the spark module, don't know what you mean by ignition system. Please check this parts image and tell me the part# that you have already replaced, if you have already replaced the spark module then it means the pressure regulator needs replacement. Please get back to me if you have any other questions.

    Check the ignition switches on them, if they are fine then the spark module needs replacement

How to remove the top panel of the cooktop?


To remove the top so that you can replace the electrodes, you just need to pull all the burner grates off and knobs. Then remove all the burner caps and rings off so that all you're left with is the cooktop and the burner bases. There are screws going into each burner base. Remove all the screws and the burner bases will pull up and off and then you can pull the top of the cooktop up and off.

The electric sparker for gas cooktop will not go off, sparks as long as the electricity is plugged in


The most posible cause is that the ingiter have been mositure probably from a water leak and have be short the wires of the ingiter. Their is a small chance that it will dry by it self and be normal again. If not you can remove the top and reach for the ingiter, is a plastic box with a lot of wires in and out and with hair dryer you can try to dry it. If it still sparking again then you need to replace the igniter

I have a Jenn Air gas cooktop, only about 2 years


If the burner just clicks and won't stare try this (a local tech showed me) Scrape the underside of the burner cap (the removable black disk in the middle of the burner) with a key or knife and watch it work! But be ready to do it again and again. There's a glossy finish left by the factory he said.
