Question about Jenn-Air 34 in. Expressions CVGX2423 Gas Cooktop
We have an Jenn-Air gas range, it has the problem that it's getting difficult to start the fire while the igntter keeps the clicking sound, and producing sparks. We did smell the gas being released at the same time.
Sometimes the igniter works.
We also have the problem of all 4 igniters keep clicking, when one of the stove is lit.
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.

I followed Beaker52's advice and it worked! I also have a Jenn - Air stove where the igniter was clicking, gas was flowing but the burner wasn't lighting. The manual was useless but this forum was very helpful. I plugged in the hair dryer, aimed it right at the igniter from 2-3 inches away and let it blow hot air for about 5 minutes. The burner now lights within a second or two, the way that it should. At the very least this is worth 5 minutes of your time to try.

Just had the problem of continuous clicking after the stove lit. The probem is in your electrical wiring. It is not grounded correctly. The way the sensor works to let the controls know that the stove is lit, is by relaying a signal to the electrical box and then back to the control unit. If the electric box is not grounded correctly it can not relay the signal.

Well none of these fixes apply to my case. i can see it is a weak spark (not blue) even after cleaning. Seeing as to the high costs of the electric ignition module, I'm just going to go buy a hand held welding flint lighter and make life easier.
If I was inspired, I'd probably find some better ignition system and retro fit this whole thing for 1/2 the costs of replacement parts.

Thanks mrroyal111! -- I had clicking after the burners were burning. Problem was that I'd removed the inner ring during cleaning and did not put it back properly. There are little nubs that must be lined up properly. If you don't, ALL the burners can start to act wonky when you try to ignite them. Problem solved.

Be sure that you have the groove in the burner head over the igniter. Surprisingly you can put the burner head on with the groove in another place. I did that.

Try reversing the AC wires, white to white, black to black solved my problem.
