Question about Jenn-Air 30 in. CCG2423 Gas Cooktop

6 Answers

Igniter will not turn off once burners are lit.

Electronic igniter continues to click repeatedly even after burner is ignited.  Does this have to do with the ignition module?  How to fix?  Very annoying.  All 4 burners will ignite, but clicking continues endlessly...  Please help

    Did not get a response to the problem.  Still annoying us.  Cleaning the igniter head with a small wire brush did seem to help a little.  Sorry I couldn't help more...

    When using one, or more burners, the ignitors continue to fire intermittently on all the burners. The product manual does not say how the ignitor is "told" when to fire but it must be something to do with both flow of gas (telling it to fire) and heat from burning gas (telling it to quit firing).



    Any suggestions would be appreciated!

    We have the exact same issue! The ignitor continues to click on all the burners even if only one is lit. Not a great product. We just moved into this house with all Jen Air products and have replaced all but the stove top with GE products. Any help would be appreciated Jen Air!

    have to light with matches

  • Mike9999 Apr 27, 2008

    Our gas stovetop keeps making a clicking noise and doesn't ignite anything. I can see a few parks sometimes. I usually light the burners with a lighter/matches and it works fine. I'm assuming it is a problem with the igniter? Do I just call a small appliance maintenance to replace it? Any ideas on cost?

    I have just moved into a house, we have a Jenn-Air CCG457-W gas stove.
    which has been with the previous owners for 10-13 years.
    Once I turn the front burner all burners starts to ignitate. I have used gas stove for over before but never had a problem.
    Please advise what I could do to stop the ignitor stop making noise.

    Jenn Air cooktop is ****. This is the second Jenn Air cooktop I bought and both have the same problem which is it keeps igniting even after the fire already lit. The first one I got from Ebay so I can't and too expensive to return it, I brought the same Jenn Air for 2nd time at local because I figured the cut out of the countertop is the same. Damn it, the same problem with this one too. I called the store for service and they cant send service until 2 weeks later. AJMADISON.com has bad service and expensive, dont buy from them. I'll will update if I find out how they going to fix the problem.

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!

The jenn air cooktop-if the igniter continues to spark after the flame comes on the unit around the burner is bad.the igniter is also a flame sensor it senses heat and then shuts off knowing the flame is there.you can try to clean the tips at the burner if you choose but you might still have the same problem.otherwise you will have to replace the whole piece that goes around the burner itself.

    Electronic igniter continues to click repeatedly even after burner is ignited.

    After two weeks waiting for technician to show up. He knew right away it's not the problem with the cooktop, it's electrical outlet wiring. The wires are reversed. Once you've done that, it is fixed.

    Try this if you have the same problem.

I had a first occurrence of the same problem. The ignition won't stop clicking. The noise was annoying. First, I unplugged the power cable. The plug is in the kitchen cabinet under the cook top.Then i removed the knobs and used cotton stabs and alcohol to clean everything under the knobs. It is important that the switches ( vertical bars that go under the knobs) can move freely up and down. I think that the clicking is triggred by the switch being pressed. Dirt (grease and dust) would prevent it from going in the Up position. Hope it helps. For me it solved the problem, at least for now.

The knob swtch is the problem /long time of use that gas stove / the small particles inside the knob are being form a conductor to line that line that hat being ignited once you ignite conductance will flow current to bypass switch /"need to clean knob switch."

Why want middle burner light automatically but will light with a lighter


That unit is suppose to have electronic quartz igniters. Apparently there's a problem but it doesn't automatically mean the igniter needs to be replaced. If you see a spark from the igniter then it's fine. If you see a spark but no flame then the ignition process is out of synchronization. In other words, the gas hasn't concentrated near the spark enough to ignite. This may be a matter of low gas pressure or the extra length the gas needs to flow to reach the center burner is impeding ignition. Simple fix is turn the knob just enough to start the gas for 2 seconds then continue the turn to click the igniter. or simply use a match. You may also see if there are any adjustments on the gas manifold that will enhance bringing more gas to the center burner quicker. Some unit have one click & that's it, others click the igniter continuously until you release turning the knob. Good luck. you'll figure it out.

My gas cooktop is contiuing a clicking sound to start the gas burner. it is not the color of the flame or that stuff. Just the starter keeps trying to start. the gas burner that is all. Blair


Hello Blair
Does the clicking or spark stop with all knobs in off position? If so it's probably the one burner valve for the one you're trying to light ,stuck in light mode,sending signal to module.Have that burner valve replaced.($50). (2) If clicking continues even though everything is off, it could be any one of the burner valves or your ignition module is messed up .You would have to pull wire off each burner valve one by one to find the offending valve . If not valves then suspect ignition module.
Easily fixed either way.



Feedback appreciated !

One of the burners on my Dacor 4 burner gas cooktop no longer ignites automatically, it just continues to spark, but it will light with a match. Is this something I can fix myself, and if so, what should I...


Electric gas igniters sometimes get stuck in one position causing a clicking sound. The clicking sound that you hear is the electric arc that is pulsing from the igniter conductor (wire) to ground (the gas burner). It receives power from the electrical outlet that the stove is plugged into.
Residue from food and sometimes cleaning products may be preventing the igniter from producing a spark (Arc) to the base of the burner. This is a common problem that occurs when the stove has been cleaned or food is allowed to build up. Make sure that the igniter and the burner base are clean and dry. This will help with proper operation. Oven cleaner and a small tooth brush may be used to accomplish this. Another problem with ignition may occur if you have too little (touching) or too much space between the igniter and the base of the burner; it will prevent the burner from igniting. You should only have a little more space than the thickness of a nickel between the burner base and the igniter. A good “blue” arc from the igniter to the burner base is optimal. If this doesn’t work, you may need to replace the electric igniter module. Good luck.

Kitchenaid gas ccoktop electronic ignition continues to click


We called in an appliance repair technician. He said during the cleaning process of the cooktop, when the control knobs had been removed to thoroughly clean the cooktop, some cleaning fluid or water or moisture got into the ignition switch panel under the cooktop. Letting it dry for 24 hours should fix the problem and this appears to have done that.

Clicking noise on cooktop even when all burners ignite


I have a viking gas cooktop. The ignitor on one of my front burners wouldn't stop clicking even after the flame ignited. I swapped that ignitor with the ignitor from a back burner, expecting that the problem was with the ignitor and that the back burner would start to click incessantly, but at least I'd have my favorite front burner for use. Instead, the front burner was then only clicking 50% of the time and the back burner was fine, suggesting the problem was related to the burner not the ignitor. I pulled the front ignitor a bit away from the burner and now it is working normally. Hope this helps.
