Jenn-Air Gas Cooktop JGC8536ADB - Ignitor Replacement Difficulty
Replacing Range Top Ignotor - Complaint
Jenn Air gas ranges will have ignitor failures from time to time. Cost of an ignitor with shipping is maybe $22 or so. The big problem is Jenn-Air used cheap non-stainless steel screws for the burner base and ignitor(screw under base). The result is that the screws will corrode in and not be easily removable. You can guess what a problem that is - a drilling and tapping operation. Figure hours of your valuable time wasted. If you buy a Jenn Air gas range (such as JGC9336)you MUST immediately remove all (15) screws(3 per burner) and put antiseize lub on them or replace with stainless steel screws. I have seen comments about this same Jenn-Air problem at various parts websites.
The added cost of stainless steel screws is maybe $1 or less.
Unless American mfg pay attention to details they will very slowly be pushed aside by foreign (Japanese and Korean Mfg).
