Question about GE JS905SKSS Stainless Steel Electric Kitchen Range

GE stainless steel glass cooktop slide in range-control knob decals coming off

I've had this range for a little over two years. The heat level directions that surround each control knob are coming off and fast! I just wipe the range down, use no abrasives-don't want to scratch the stainless steel. Purchased extended warranty through Sears. When the tech came out to address this and another issue, he informed me that he sees this problem quite a bit and that it is "cosmetic" and thus not covered. I e-mailed Sears right away along with GE. To date, both entities stand behind it being cosmetic. I take issue with that! How do they expect people to operate this range when the decals finally come off? I do most of the cooking and would remember but what if someone who is not familiar with the range use it? Do they get it by osmosis or the the Psychic Network? I feel this is an engineering flaw and a safety issue. Anybody else have this problem?

    I have the same problem. I'm not sure what caused the decals to come off. I don't use any abrasive cleaners. Any way to have this fixed and get new labels/decals?

    I have had the same problem with a GE Profile Gas Cooktop JGP945SEKSS where the lettering has worn off. I call GE parts and Customer Service; but their only solution was for me to order a whole new cooktop surface discounted to about $150. Not much of a solution and in my opinion, poor customer service. This sound like a broader problem that GE has no interest in addressing. I'll buy futute products from another manufacturer in the future.

    Hi Neil, I have the same problem. I tried your suggestion of calling consumer affairs. I finally reached a supervisor who refused to put me on the line with her manager, and will only offer to sell me the part at a discounted price. Their retail on the part is $545, and they will sell it to me for $140. I have serious issues with a french door ge refrigerator, and they will only give me half off parts and labor or money off a new one. Their customer service is abysmal. Do you think you might be able to help me?

    Hi Neil, I am experiencing the same issues that some of the other readers have mentioned. My appliances are a little older than some listed but I still feel I paid a lot of money for a "top of the line" appliance that obviously has a design issue. I was told to replace the surfaces ($600 discounted) & only use warm soapy water or vinegar & water. Excuse me, but doesn't soap have some chemical component to it & vinegar is acidic. I find it hard to believe that in time the results would be the same on the replacement surfaces. Thanks for the information about the stickers. This info was never mentioned in my call. I hope that my next call will have a different outcome.

Where do I find the orface and air intake on the GE Range

Sealed burner ranges the orifice is in the center of each burner, down inside(brass color). Open style burners the orifice should be under the lift off burner or in some case where the burner tube goes back to the control panel at the control knob. Almost all will be brass color. Oven orifices are at the end of the burner tube where the gas would come into the burner. Air adjustments are usually right near the orifices. A small sliding window with 1 screw holding the adjustment in place.

What is wrong with our GE Profile Gas Range? After using the broiler and two burners simultaneously, the electronic controls go black. We can manually light stovetop burners but oven does not work.

On the back of the stove are 2 blower fans just under the cooktop. They are cooling fans to keep the controls from overheating. They are a long tube type fan and are left and right side. My guess is one or both are not coming on. They are controlled by a round disk temp control also under the cooktop. At a preset temp these fans should come on and keep all the control area cool enough to stop any damage. The fans need tested and maybe the temp control needs replaced.

Stove top radiant heat burners don't regulate properly

We also have the same problem with the JS968SOK1SS and it is driving the wife crazy since it ruins many recipes that call for even heat.
As she said "It is crazy her electric skillet regulates heat better than her GE range"
I've been telling her Gas is the way. Has anyone found a solution to this problem or is that to be expected of Electric ranges?

Leveling glass top

The only thing you can do is level the entire unit. Do not attempt to adjust the glass alone. The range has leveling feet all around. They unscrew to provide the adjustment you need. See your manual.
