Ventilation system on Jenn Air CVG4280

The ventilation system will come on when the grill burner is in use.  It is not suppose to come on when the burner module is in but it does now.  It never use to.  Thanks for any assistance.

    My drip pan has warped and so the bar on the pan wasn't pushing the level down. I took a pair of plyers and bent the bar down and now the fan does not turn on. Thanks.

My Jenn-Air had the same problem. When you install the drip pan for the burner module, there is a "finger" on the pan that is inserted into a hole in the front of the stove. If you look into that hole, you will see a lever switch. The finger on the drip pan on the burner module is supposed to push that lever switch down and turn the fan off, but over time the lever gets pushed down further and ultimately it does not get activated when the drip pan is installed.

You can either replace the lever switch, or you can try to pull it back into place and tighten the two small screws that hold it in place. Actually, I chose a third option and attached a small, flat spring to the finger on the drip pan.

Wow, for years turning on the left side burners would start the fan, so I've learned to (gently) slam the drip pan left or right a few times which would eventually turn off the fan. Who wants to pay for a repair that is really just an inconvenience?! Obviously my switch was only a little bit out of whack because, just now, I bent the drip pan finger down less than 1/4 inch and the problem is SOLVED! thrilling!

It must have a bad fan relay which you can get on http://www.appliancepartspros.com/partsearch/model.aspx?model_id=42194.  It's under 1. Blower assembly plenum and their part # is AP3990101 and cost is $28.28.  Would appreciate a solved rating for expert advice.  Let me know how it turns out.

I Have A Jenn-Aie Model 720-0164 Natural Gas Grill. When I Grill, The Control Knobs Get So Hot Theyh Will Burn You. What Could Csuse This?


Can this grill be also used on propane? If so you might be running it too hot on natural gas, check to see if the control knobs have two different set of markings.

Two of my burners are clicking even when the stove is off. what should I do?


There is a switch that slides onto the shaft for each burner. When you turn the knob to a certain area it completes the circuit to the ignitor module. It sounds like you have a shorted switch. Unfortunately with most 'cooktops', these are not easy to get to.

It's also strange that only 2 are igniting, usually one module runs all the ignitors. When you turn one of the non-problem burners on, does it click when it supposed to and stop when it's supposed to?

The ignitors running constantly is annoying and may damage the module, but should not be dangerous unless you have other issues, ie., fuel leaks.

If you have access to basic hand tools and a multimeter I can walk you through the diagnosis.

Should I buy a two burner unit if available? Or a new cooktop?


Yes you can as long as there ae two heat controls for the grill side of the stove/cooktop. That allows one burner control for each of the burners. You should be able to order directly from GE but I would also check out repairclinic.com since they normally sell OEM GE parts cheaper than you can buy them from GE. At least check out the price at both sources beforw purchasing.

Exhaust turns on automatically in burner mode


Hello
I have the one with the 4 burners and the grill, and when the grill in on the fan has to come on, and it does automaticly, but once you finish with the grill you have to change it back to stove mode by putting the 2 burners back or the fan will allways go on when you turn the switch. It is a safety regulation for the fan to be on with the grill to avoid the fumes......I know I hate that too.
Hope this help

Yes. Buy a burner module. Sears sells them also most appliance part stores. (I am assuming you have the model with 2 knobs on the grill side) The electric version of burner modules is around $100 Gas should be similar price.
