I have a Jenn-Air gas stove top. When the larger burner is on all starters (including those not in use) continue to click. Can this be fixed.
Thanks for counting on us to help with your appliance problem. My name is XXXXX XXXXX I look forward to helping you! Does it run well on all of the other burners?

yes -- it runs fine on the other burners.


 


it is the larger burner that is giving me a hard time


 

Great, thank you! That unit uses what is called a Flame Rectification System. The igniters send a message back to the spark module to let it know that the flame is lit and to stop sparking. It uses the moisture in the flame between the igniter and the burner base to create a path to ground to get that message ot the module. So, when lit, is the flame solid in between the sparker igniter and the burner base?

I have a handyman in my house now taking a look at it and hopefully the 2 of you can figure out the problem. give him a minute......

You bet! If that flame is solid there, have him use sand paper to clean the igniter tip and the area it sparks to. Let me know what happens, please.
