Serial # .10617006JL, stainless cooktop, 5 burner. I am having trouble with my front right burner not lighting correctly. It is sparking and if I blow on it sometimes it will light right up. Could you suggest the part that needs to be replaced? Also, sometimes other burners start clicking like it is trying to ignite when the burners are already lit. What is this cause? This has really been happening since it was installed!
Answer Hello Ken,
First off, all surface burners are designed to spark when any of the surface burners spark. That said, the spark module actually senses the resistance of the flame and if it thinks the flame has gone out, all surface burners should spark as per the design. Most of the time clearing the orifice with a stripped down bread tie and making certain a good ground is supplied to the burner area will take care of this issue. If ground is measured to be about the reading shown when the meter leads are touched directly together, the issue can be a failing ignitor 74009336 or ignitor wire. Worst case scenario would be a defective spark module 8286828.
I have a Jenn air cook top..all the burners light, but I have 1 that will continue to ignite after its been on for about 5 to 10 min..it will continue to click away until I turn it off. Its a JGC8430b. Thank you..
You will want to check the ignition switch on the burner valve for that burner. Turn the switch to the on position and see if there is continuity across the leads. If there is continuity then the issue will be with the burner switch. If there is not then the issue would be with the spark module.
