you have just triggered an exothermic reaction of light hydrocarbons and oxygen as a result of introducing an external heat source trigger. Which could possibly result in the cooking of some dinner. Yum.
No worries Barbara, you have done no damage. Unless dinner burned....
Good Morning Fern mullen, I appreciate your post!
Based off what you have described your burners are no longer working on your Frigidaire range. This could be an issue with your control panel or the switch. I would recommend performing a reset on your range and you can do that by disconnecting power from the range for at least ten minutes. If that does not help correct your issue I would suggest having a technician out to your home for a proper diagnosis and repair. Best of luck! -Matt
1) turn off power at the breaker.
2) remove hold down screws
3) pop up cooktop out of counter top
4) remove knobs and downdraft grille
5) remove ceramic top (screws around outside and also in side grille opening)
6) unplug burners replace with new burner
hi my name is mark, lp will yellow tip alittle. check if your burners have air shutters some do some dont, they will be on the burner tube were the burner slips over the orifice. and should have a screw to keep them in place. loosen screw then carefully while the burner is lit open them some. be careful not to burn yourself, and careful not to open to far or you have problems getting them to light properly, and get popping on shut down of burners. hope this helped.
yes the knob is attached to a switch and the switch to the burner by way of wires..you can get into the cook top.but with your description of whats going on i would have the switch with me and then may only have too take apart once.there is a chance your burner is bad,but as you describe the way the switch is acting is seems pretty sure just the switch.you can order switch on line you need your model and ser#
Confirm there is 240 VAC powering the unit (make sure a breaker has not tripped or a fuse blown.).
Did the burners ever produce enough heat?
If yes, then we can look deeper. If no, then the burners may not be adequate for your cooking style. Burners are like light bulbs. A 60 watt bulb will put out more light than a 40 watt bulb. A 100 watt bulb will put out more light than a 60. Typically, a small burner will provide less cooking heat than a large burner.
the white wire from the stove top goes to the green wire or nuteural, the red and black go to the hot wires I had the white wire from the stove top going to the hot wire and I had the same problem as you. am lucky I did not burn up my motor.
Porceline (a coating over metal in this case) is actually a type of glass, and subject to fracture upon sudden thermal shock or physical stress. The part you indicate is WB62T10124 for a JGB939C1WW probably a bit over $150 or a WB62T10132 for a JGP939C2WW, probably a bit over $100, but the labor to replace it would be costly. If you rate this, please remember I did not manufacture this product, nor am I a GE employee, so please don't shoot the messenger.
