first thing is the spark module(ignitor-- your referring to) is probably good and your electrodes are damaged. more then likely the problem. when you turn on one burner they should all spark( 1 module controls all 5 electrodes) so lets check that, first. when you turn on any/all burners do you at least hear clicking??. theres a switch under each **** that turns on the spark(erhaps one of them is bad. think of the electrodes as spark plugs on a car, they spark the same way, ck to see that they are clean(free from rust and carbon build up).using emory cloth or a woman's finger nail file try "sanding" down to a shiny surface the very tip of the electrode protruding out of the burner head.look for cracks in the porcelin housing around the electrodes this will lead to miss fires of the electrodes

SOURCE: Jenn-Air JDG8430 Ignitor won't stop sparking after burner ignites

when you turn the dial a switch is engaged to start the ignitor , or if there is a sensor(one for the two bottom , one for the two top , it may not be reconizing that they are lit ,or the problem is sticky switch in the the dials, but I believe its a sensor that detects both of those burners that stops the spark

SOURCE: old Thermador cooktop continues to spark even after turned off

sounds like you have a bad switch. maybe on the large burner.. some of those switches can be replaced without the whole harness.

SOURCE: stove top ignition doesn't stop ticking

My Dacor cooktop had a similar problem of continuously clicking igniters. I unplugged it a couple months ago and used a piezoelectric igniter to get it started. Then I looked in the Dacor FAQ and it said to clean the ceramic igniter posts with alcohol not water. I had to scrape some gunk off a couple of the posts with a knife before cleaning with alcohol. Now it works.'

I think the igniters use electrical conductivity to detect when they need to spark, so even slight invisible contamination on the igniter insulator can confuse the sensing system. Also they all seem to fire as a group, so all of them need to be clean because if any one of them is dirty then they will all malfunction.

My smeg cooker is brand new! after cleaning it - one of the rings will not ignite properly, it clicks so gas is coming through but no flame! any sugestions?


Brand new means you have a warranty, get the service agent to check.
I have found that you can easily place the wrong burner cap on the incorrect burner ring(the smaller burner caps).
Could also be dirt or water in burner ring or the burner jet(use needle to clear jet).
Are sparks coming from all ignitors? You might have damaged the spark plug.

Burner fails to ignite


I have this cooktop and it is hands-down the worst. That clicking sound is the spark missing the mark because of a crack or chip in the ceramic igniter. Damage is caused by the ceramic heating too quickly. Especially when the house is cooler in winter, or in air conditioning. I had a Jenn Air repair guy in to replace them before the warranty ran out and he said this happens with every single one of these models with the ceramic igniter. Also, one of the knobs on the front by the medium burner got so hot it melted. He gave us a new one. He had a whole box of them in his truck! He told us the design was inferior and that Jenn Air uses a different igniter for higher end models because of this problem, but won't re-engineer the lower end units because it's cost prohibitive. Even with the repairs they cover for the first year, they recoup in charging for service the second year, than profit on the repair and/or replacement charges for the parts every year after that. All the parts sold are OEM--no after markets, so, at roughly $27 a pop for each igniter, they make out pretty good. Oh, and the burner knob is melted again. What a bunch of scamsters. I will never give them my money again and am shopping for a new cooktop. I left a good review at bizrate for this cooktop.
