GE Gas Ceramic Cooktop w/downdraft exhaust #JGP989BK

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.
Thanks,
Joseph

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.

SOURCE: my ge ceramic cooktop hot indicator light won't go out

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.

One burner has no spark for ignition..


Hi,
Yes this is arcing, and should be replaced. If it is still atatched, you may be able to move it away from an area that it is arcing onto, and give it a try. Wery often it is just items in close proximity that causes the issue.

Should I buy a two burner unit if available? Or a new cooktop?


Yes you can as long as there ae two heat controls for the grill side of the stove/cooktop. That allows one burner control for each of the burners. You should be able to order directly from GE but I would also check out repairclinic.com since they normally sell OEM GE parts cheaper than you can buy them from GE. At least check out the price at both sources beforw purchasing.

Order in black w/matte finish grates & downdraft cover


No. If it is really important order the grates and downdraft cover as replacement parts. This will be expensive probably around $200 - $300.
