Question about GE 30 in. Profile JGP989 Gas Cooktop
New installation. Gas burners sound like a jet engine when ignighted. Serviced by GE techs 3 times. This is a natural gas installation and the correct orifices are on the unit.
GE Engineering now says that it was designed that way and the burners should quite down when a pan is on the burner and after 3-5 minutes of use (each time it's used).
Do you this this is defective?...or did they put out a half-baked product.
SOURCE: Gas not igniting
aknot, make sure each burner cap has a good ground to the burner. You can use some light sandpaper to scrub them. Where the burner fits around the ignitor is a small orfice. Use a paper clip or small sharp object to clean out the orfice. Try this first. Catriver..post back.

Check the power plug is their any separate plug on it / if none check the control panel some switch to power on .

I know that some people have mentioned that it looks like it's on, even when it's off. Depending on how the light hits it, it can look like it's glowing a bit. This would be normal.
