Pitted glass cooktop in Jenn Air Model JGC9430ADS

Hi, Anyone know why the Jenn Air Model JGC9430ADS was discontinued? I recently purchased one, online, and when I opened the box the glass top appears to be "pitted" with very small pinprick type holes, like during the manufacturing of the "Ceran" cooktop glass, the product "bubbled". Does anyone know if there are known problems with the finish on these things? I purchased a Gas/glass black with stainless trim. Would sure like to know before I go raising heck with the mfr or seller.

Did you find anything out? We have had our Jenn-aire gas stove for 1 1/2 years and just noticed today that the surface has bubbled in a spot??? I did clean the oven last week.

How do I change out the Switch on a gas cook top -Jenn-Air JGC9430ADS


if you mean the switch under the knob,
you can open up, drill, the switch and clean up and use it again, uless the copper parts are burned out.

to get to the switch, most likely have to unscrew all the screws holding the top and the bottom together, most likely the screws will be on the top, by the gas burner on each burner. and may need to check the sides for additional screws .

if you go step by step , its pretty easy.
maybe you should look up on you tube for demo.

Bad ignitor needs replacement


it may just need cleaning at where it sparks to the burner if it is sparking back down the electrode then it is cracked . Some igniters pull out others have a screw that holds them in.

Yes you can. Call Jenn Air ((877) 232-6771) and give them your model number (serial is helpful too). They sent my replacement glass within a week. I have a model JED8430ABD from 2000 and they had the top. Fit perfectly and took about an hour to replace.

To change it out, after unplugging the cooktop, I removed the metal tape connecting the external vent shaft to the blower. Then I just lifted the entire cooktop out up out of the countertop so I could access the screws on the sides of the cooktop (looking at the edges of the new cooktop glass helped me figure out which screws to remove around the edge). Then I removed the 2 screws in the vent area on top (1 black screw on each side). And that released the cooktop glass from the metal box that holds the burners. I then took the rubber rings out of the knob holes so I could put them in the new cooktop (I almost missed that...). Finally, I put the new cooktop glass on, put the screws back in, lowered the cooktop back into the counter, and retaped the blower to the vent shaft. Voila!

I really wouldn't be afraid of doing this yourself if you are handy at all. And it will save you a ton. Good luck.

PS The screws around the perimeter are hexigon shapped, so you can't just use a screwdriver. I found my Black & Decker electric screwdriver had that same shaped hole that it held the bit, so I just pulled out the bit and used the screwdriver that way. Worked like a charm.

Jenn air jed 8430 electric cooktop control switch for rear burner


The cook top is attached to the wood frame by brackets, just remove the screws and the electric connection, make sure the power is off from the main box, it's a 220 volt wiring and then just lift the top off. to remove the glass, look around the edges and you should see some small screws, just remove them and the glass should lift off.

Cleaning area around burners


Try regular oven cleaner (not the overnight kind) . This will work if there are no aluminum or painted parts. Don't do this if the instruction manuel says not to.
