Question about GE Cooktops

Open Question

I have a GE profile cooktop. The knob is stuck in the gas locked position and will not turn to “gas unlocked” therefore we can’t use it. We tried using WD40 and it won’t budge. It pushes down but will not turn. Help!

No recalls that I know of.  The switch for that burner has shorted and will need to be replaced.  It will be fine once it is repaired.

SOURCE: Stained gas range burner grates

Hey y'all. I have the same lame GE profile gas cooktop with the gray grates and burner covers. I know this is the expensive way to go, but I use Easy-Off "self-cleaning oven" oven cleaning spray. For about $5, you get 3 cleanings. It is a pain to do, but I have better things to do than scrub these grates all the time. I don't know why, but the baked on crud just drives me crazy. I tried everything to clean them completely. I even tried to scrub the darn things with a kitchen pumice stone(sold at walmart)but it is impossible to get the curvy areas clean. Now the paint has started to wear off on the burner covers.

I do not use the oven cleaner on the cooktop itself. I use soft-scrub with baking soda, then cover the cooktop with a sheet of heavy duty aluminum foil and cut out holes for the burners. This keeps most of the spills contained, and helps with cleanup.

I visited to the GE parts web page, and they only sell gray grates and covers. I am going to buy black BBQ grill paint(spray can)from Home Depot and try it on the burner covers first. They are the least expensive to replace if it fails, and if it works, I will paint the grates with this high temperature paint. I will keep you posted on the results.

Regards,

Laura D.

SOURCE: Have a four burner gas GE Profile cooktop. How do

The igniter module is working fine. One of the switches (which are on each valve shaft) is stuck or shorted out. Pull a wire off each one at a time to determine which one is bad. Careful! 120 volts to each wire. Also, this can happen after you spill water into the valve area, if that sounds right, let it dry out.

GE gas cooktop modelJGP970BEK2BB. The unit is in the unlocked position, burners will light, but "lock" light remains on and buzzer/alarm sounds the whole time?


Hi,
The lock switch will need to be replaced. Lock switch, the switch has failed and causes the buzzer to run. Not a difficult repair but the top will need to be remover to fix this. This is not advisable to repair if your not knowledgeable with the installation part of this unit.
Good Luck

After spraying stainless steel cleaner on the cooktop, with the knobs removed, the igniter won't stop ticking as if it's trying to ignite. All the knobs are securely in the off position. Could this be...


Hi,

Yes, the moisture is probably the problem...

My GE Profile propane gas cook top was just installed yesterday. When I go to turn on one of the burners, all of the ignitors click. This can't possibly be normal. Anyone else have this issue?


Yes, thats okay when you turn the knob voltage gets sent to the spark module, Then the module sparks all the burner igniter. And frame ignition only happens on the single burner of the knob you turned that sends gas to the burner associated with that knob.


Please rate me a "4" if this information was useful.

My GE Gas cooktop model # JGP975EKSS is trying to ignite without any burners being turned on.


If all the burners are trying to ignite at the same time - the ignitor module is to blame.
If it is one specific burner - take a look at that individual knob.
