Burners are not fully heating out to the end

One of the back burners I found goes off and on and does not appear to be fully heating "on high" anymore, there is a 1/2 inch difference between the heating element and the circle on the stove top. This circle use to be fully "heated". The second burner is now doing the same thing. Not heating all the way out to the "end circle" like it use to. My Jenn-Air is about 7 years old. I would not expect it to be "worn out" already, but have no idea what else it could be? thanks in advance

Either the elements are going out or the controlls for the burners are getting croded contacts. Best bet would be to replace both and go for another 7 years :-)

Jenn Air C221 element only goes to high?

Based on the symptoms described, it is possible that the issue lies with the ceramic element that the burners connect to at the back of the burner unit. This could be causing a short circuit between the two burners, which is preventing the large burner from being adjusted lower when both burners are on.

It is also possible that there is an issue with the wiring or connections between the two burners, which is causing a similar short circuit. However, given that the smaller burner appears to be working fine, this seems less likely.

Another potential cause of this issue could be a problem with the control board or another component of the stove's electrical system. However, given that replacing the infinite switch and receptacle for the large burner did not resolve the issue, it seems less likely that this is the root cause.

In order to determine the exact cause of this issue, it may be necessary to consult with a professional appliance repair technician who can diagnose and repair the stove.

Gas was turned off and igniters keep clicking?

As I did not see what occurred, I suspect that the tea kettle boiled over and sent water into the burners. The igniters kept clicking and I eventually turned the gas back on. Will have to replace one igniter which apparently went out and have to light it manually at this point.

2 right burners on my Jenn-Air JEC9536 cooktop stopped working.

I have a JEC9536ADB electric Jenn-Air Cooktop. We replaced the class top and now the knobs are all spliting and won't work. 2 of the main burners will only heat in the "high" position? What do I need to replace?

When lighting one of the burners, the ingnition knob has to be held down over ten seconds for the flame to stay lit when the knob is released..

Lift the top of the Stove up.
Look for a Small line that goes to the Affected Burner.
At the end of that Line you will see a small Flathead Screw.
Turning That screw Clockwise Adjusts your Pilot Light for that Burner.
Be careful not to Adjust to High, it would just be a Waist of gas.

hope that helped.

Wolf range cooktop

I just installed a Wolf gas cooktop and had the same problem in that all 4 burners would light just fine but the electronic igniters would not stop clicking on all four. What I found was that the electrical outlet that my gas cooktop was plugged into had the polarity reversed. I tested the outlet with a polarity testing module (you can get one at Home Depot and it checks polarity, grounding, GFI and is handy to have around, small and inexpensive). I plugged it in and the lights told me that the polarity was reversed. I reversed the wires in the outlet (exchanged the white and black wires) put the cover back on, plugged in the cook top and now it works like a champ! no more constant clicking. By the way, we had a cooktop before this one with electronic ignition and never had a problem, apparently it didn't care about the polarity.

Jenn-Air JGD8130

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...
