Our Model JGD8130ADB Jenn-Air stovetop front burner is not "clicking" or igniting when we turn on the gas. If I physically light it with a hand-held lighter, it will ignite and then stay lit. The burner directly behind it still ignites and lights. (Sorry, apologizing in advance. I don't know the correct terminology for the appliance parts, etc.). I am not sure which part to order to fix our stovetop. Any advice is much appreciated!
Thanks in advance, ~RBR

Wonderful! How do I know if I should order the single or double switch valve?
Thanks for the quick reply :)

test each of your Valve Switches with a meter, to see which one isn't working

The single switch has (2) terminals

the double switch has (4) terminals

Reg said "could", as in might be... as I typed this his reply about testing just came in above.

 

Do what the nice Reg man says, be sure that you have found the real cause of the issue and only then spend money on parts.

 

Monkeys toss in part after part and hope it gets fixed. Technicians diagnose properly and use one part; the right one. :)

One more question...what type of meter do we use to test the valve switches?

*Something to note: this is quite odd, once we light the burner with an external hand-held lighter, the burner will ignite; then the ignitor will even spark. If we turn the burner off for a few seconds then, and try to re-light, it will spark and ignite. But if the burner cools off, it no longer ignites. That seems very odd.
