Question about Jenn-Air JGS8850BDS Stainless steel Gas Kitchen Range

Problem with getting burner to light.

The front right burner on my gas Jenn-air will not light. It will light with a match but the ignitor will not light it. At the same time that I try to turn on the RF burner, the LR ignitor starts to spark. I have purchased a new ignitor for the RF burner and it does not correct the problem. I know the replacment ignitor is good as it works on the RR burner. Why does the LR ignitor spark when I try to turn on the RF burner and is it related to my problem? Help.

All my ignitors spark when I turn one of them on. I'v been told it is normal. I had a problem before and the tech that replace the ignitor said the issues is with alignment. Try to rotate the burner a bit left or right and see if it fixes it.

If the front left also does not light normally, my best guess would be that the wires for the front left and right rear are crossed and the insulation may have fried. Besides that possibility, I have no clue.

The electronic ignitor on front right burner no longer works.


All ignitors should fire regardless of which burner is turned on. See if the right front will light up if you turn on another burner or look for a spark. If not, the ignitor is probably fouled and needs a good cleaning. If the right front burner will spark or ignite when a different burner is turned on, it is the right front control switch - not an easy fix. When cleaning the cook top, if you remove the knobs, any liquid that gets into the switches will short them out. Found that out the hard way.

Front burner slow in lighting on jenn-air stove top. All other burners light quickly. Could it be the ignighter? Can I switch out ignighters with a back burner that we seldom use?


Yes, it most likely is the ignitor. Chances are it simply needs to be cleaned (ignitor, burner etc.)

If cleaning it does not solve the problem, I reccomend replacing it with a new one.

A malfunction of that type causes gas buildup and can result in excessive ignition when it finally does light. As they get worse, they litterally create mini explosions and can become fire hazzards.

For that reason I reccomend that you do not use that ignitor on any burner with such a malfunction.

You should be able to find a new ignition assembly at your local appliance parts warehouse, or by calling the manufacturer.

Top right burner on hotpoint gas range doesn't light


there is a spark ignition in the middle between the front and back burners....one for the left side and one on the right side. When it was cleaned i bet that the spark ignitor was slightly bent towards the front burner...now the gap is too big to fire the rear burner...the ignitor is very similar as the spark made in those push down lighters. so its safe to play around and adjust them as needed to make them work...Go ahead and take it apart and tinker with adjusting it...until you get both front and rear burners running again the way it was before.( peek at the otherside as a reference and try to make it match)
I hope this helps you out a little bit 8-)

When I try to light my jenn air gas cook top it clicks but will not light. But it will light with a match


Your electronic ignitor is bad. You can buy a replacement ignitor where you bought your grill. Just about any hardware store will have a replacement ignitor. They are real easy to replace. There is 1 wire to the back of the ignitor. There is a retaining nut on the switch. Remove the switch and replace with new switch. Plug wire into ignitor, Turn gas on and test ignitor.

Happy Grilling

Jenn Air Pro Style gas range - ignitors on 2 burners (same side) click but don't light


I had a problem in which only one burner refused to light with the electronic ignition, even though the same ignitor (they are shared) would light the rear burner on the same side, and the problem burner would light with a match. On inspection, the spark occurs at a central point and there is a tube which apparently leads gas from each burner to the ignitor. There are two groupings of 3 holes each on the sloping part of each burner, facing toward the ignitor. After lighting both burners (the front one with a match), I saw that the lower group of 3 holes had tiny flames on the burner that worked properly, but not on the other. I carefully cleaned each of these holes with a small pin, and the problem appears to be solved.
