Resolved Question:

I have a Jenn-air 30" cooktop model # XXXXX This is a gas cooktop. The ignitor on the front left burner stays onand won't go off until I turn on the right burner. As long as the right burner has flame burning the ignitor stays off. Once I turn off the right burner the left ignitor goes on and won't stop. I had to unplug the unit completely. I can fix it myself but I don't want to buy a 112.00 module if it's not the problem. Can You help me out? Thanks, Joe

I will accept answer so you can get paid. I don't think its the switch because I'm having the same problems with both front left and front right burners. what's the odds of both switches going bad as the same time. When flame is on the front right burner igniters stop. When flame is shut off right front burner left front igniter starts sparking.
