    Default Gas Cooktop Recomedations

    After months of fighting with Whirlpool on a Jenn Air glass cooktop they don't have parts for, they offered me Jenn Air JGC7636BS at a pro rate
    Anyone know if these are any good or problems with them.
    What's your recommendations on a new Whirlpool made gas cooktop.

    Gas burners light ?reliably? every time, and if a draft blows the flames out, they are automatically re-ignited.

    I added the ? marks
    The flame sends a signal back to the spark module to tell it the flame is on and lite.....but many times a dirty electrode, bad spark module can't read this signal and we get clicking/sparking during cooking.
