Question about Jenn-Air JGD8130 Gas Cooktop

1 Answer

Jenn-Air JGD8130 Gas Cooktop will not ignite. Electronic pilotless ignition 'clicks' but will not ignite the flame. Have removed and cleaned the elements, still no luck.

    On e burner of my cooktop will not light. All 3 others work normally and all 3 spark when I turn them on. The non-working one does not spark. I have cleaned the port under the mechanism but it still will not light.

    I have the same problem. The right side rear quit igniting first, now (a few months later) the right front has stopped. the part is 200.00, way too expensive for this part. i have done everything the manual says to fix it , still- no success.

    Have a gas Jenn Air cooktop where the flame flares up sporadically normally while cooking on that particular eye.

Why do Jenn-Air cooktop igniters click when the exhaust fan is on med-high and the burners are on low flame setting ? ?

Igniters sense flame temperature, and if the fan cools the temp sensor down, your cooktop thinks the flame has gone out, so it clicks to reignite it.

Burners will not light; there is no sound of the ignitor either

Here is a tip that I wrote to give details about why your cooktop will notspark to light the burners..

Cooktop Range Stove spark ignition does not work


When one burner knob is turned to ignite all four burners turn on.

What do you mean by "all four burners turn on"
Some electronic ignite systems turn on on all the burners, But just the SPARK not the gas part of the burner.
Is this what you are describing?.


Reading from your description it sounds like your have a bad igniter switch and needs to be replaced.
Have a great day!

Hello. When I turn on a burner, another one

grab hold of the installed burner cartridge at he top of unit and pry up slightly, should lift up without much effort, if not try lifting front side. they jsut lift up and slide back in no screws hold them in place

The problem is the pot(s) is too far from the heat. Jenn-air needs to make a burner cover that is closer to the burner for boiling water...

Igniter will not turn off once burners are lit.

I've had the same problem for 2 years. Today I removed the four burner tops, the 15/16 inch bolt that holds the burners in place, took everything apart (simple connections underneath), completely cleaned and dried eveything. I also cleaned the 4 knobs and making sure the 4 swiches slide up and down freely then dried everything with a hairdryer. Is now works fine but if the problem comes back, I'll simply unplug the cooktop and light it manually. P.S. I stripped one of the large 5/16 inch bolt that had become weak and brittle. - Try using water or some liquid to loosen the bolts as necessary. Good luck, CHEERS!
