Jenn-Air Gas Cooktop Model CVGX2423

All ignitors on my Jenn-Air Cooktop (model CVGX2423) continue to spark for a long period (even when only one burner is turned on). I have cleaned all of the burner heads and their ports. But, the problem persists. Do I need to replace the ignitors? If so, where do I get the instructions to do so?

    I have the same exact problem on the same model. Were you able to resolve?

    Same other entries. Igniter continues to fire on all burners even though burner is lit.
    Cleaned all with tooth brush and mild soap -- no change.

    The igniters are continuing to fire on all burners long after the one burner is lit as a safety feature to prevent gas leakage. My new Miele cooktop fires all burners loudly 19 times every time you light one of them, and it is SUPER annoying to the point where I'm about ready to return the thing. Does anyone know how to decrease the number of times the igniter fires?

    Same model, same problem. It has been sparking for years now, but now much worse. Wife will file for divorce if I do not have repaired. I thought the main ignitor module may be defective. Any new suggestions?

    I have a Jenn Air with the same problem. I had to unplug to make it stop. When I plugged back in, still has problem.

  • bjurewicz Jun 02, 2008

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.

I have seen a similar unit that had a switch assembly mounted inside the control panel that fired the ignitors. Each control knob had a one; 4 knobs, 4 assemblies. Its possible that the assembly is sticking due to cooking residue or cleaner. From what I remember, access was a monumental problem - uninstall, disassemble complete unit, clean, then reverse process.

Suddenly my Jenn air gas cooktop ignitors (all of them) do not click and spark, the model is CVGX2423B. I suspect it might be spark module fails, is that right?

It sounds like you need a new spark module which controls all of the burners. It is part number W10475147. It costs around $115.00!

All 4 igniters keep clicking, when one is on

All of the igniters are connected to one source. A series of small switches mount on each stem of each burner. Any of them can fire up the spark box and it in turn it fires off all the ignitors. If a boil over spills liquid into one or more of them switches the resulting continuity causes the clicking. Removing one wire at a time from each switch till the clicking stops is the solution.

Is it clicking? No...bad switch. Yes...check ignitor gap on that burner. The gap or the wiring is bad if it doesn't work.

Try carefully cleaning around the ignitors. Also clean hole in burners. Clean the holes closest to ignitors. This can be caused by a crack in ignitor, this requires replacement.
