Finally, the next most common issue with a Jenn-Air gas cooktop is a broken spark module.
This is what provides power to the ignitors for each of the burners. Therefore, if the spark is weak or non-existent, the module itself could be defective.
But before you start looking for replacement parts, first check the spark electrode and wires to see if there are any visible signs of damage.
If an ignitor is making clicking sounds and isn’t stopping, there are few possibilities for this. Fortunately, you can check all these yourself without the help of a trained professional:
The clicking can stem from a recently installed or re-connected stove to the gas supply. If this is the first time the surface burners are used, turn on any burner knobs. This will release air from the gas lines.
The burner could also be wet from cleaning. We recommend cleaning, though if you immediately use them after cleaning, you could hear the clicking noise caused by excessive moisture.
If there’s clicking and the knobs are turned off, this could be moisture within the switches. This can stem from a spill or just from cleaning. If it was cleaning, give it time for the moisture to dry. You can speed that process up by blowing cool air into the area with a hair blow dryer.
Replacing knobs is as usually as simple as twisting and removing the existing knob, then sliding the new part back into its place. However, the trick is to find the right part for the job!
