If set to high, burners should remain on. If set to medium high let's say, they would be on for maybe 70 percent of the time, off for 30 percent of the time. If set to warm, they might be on only 10 percent of the time, off 90 percent. There is a high temp limiter which could turn a burner off. If you have a burner on high and are cooking on that burner and it goes off, the high temp limiter may be faulty. It is an integral part of the burner, and would require replacement of the offending burner. Burners are individually replaceable after lifting up the glass cook top.

Igniter switch on top burner will not shut off


try thoroughly cleaning the burners, particularly the holes in the ring that the gas come through. The gas come through to heat the ignitor so that the ignitor knows to stop trying to light the burner ; if the holes are clogged the ignitor doesn't heat.
The burner is easily disassembled from the top by removing a thin bolt, and you can clear the holes with a paper clip.

I have a Kitchenaide model KGSS907SBL01 gas range. Everything works fine except that we find that the amount of heat generated is disappointing. This seems to come from the fact that the top of the grill...


Hello,
It would seem like reasonable thing to do.However the adjustment is typically for the low setting so you can adjust just the small flame just enough to simmer a pot without the flame going out from being so low its susuptable to going out on the low setting, also it so you can adjust the flame smaller so on low it isnt too high,causing it will boil when you intend to only simmer a dish your cooking. A question;is it all burners and have they always been that way?

Should the burners go off and on


yes this is totsly normal
they are really not burners, they are elements, and you dont really cook from the heat of the burner, on this design, you actually cook from the heat of the glass, so as the glass cools through convection, the element will cycle, on and off to ensure the glass maintains a temp +- 25 degrees to the set temp

hope this helps

New whirlpool range (smooth top) burners cycle on and off. Example.. turn on, 23 sec, off 28 sec, on 12 sec, on 11 sec off 30 sec, on 14 sec, etc. Impossible to cook properly


ok
i have been called out alot on this,,,,
believe it or not thats 100% normal
you are not cooking with those burners, you are actually cooking from the heat of the glass.
your "burner" element will cycle as needed to keep the glass your pan is sitting on at the temp you set
let it heat up, the glass will get hot quickly, GAS FAST as they say....
dont worry about the cycling put your pan on top and begin to cook,, it will work

I have a new ge range. When I turn on the left


mvek,
If you could see through the glass, you'd see "temperature sensors" located near the elements. They're very sensitive little guys, and rightly so! Their job is to detect temps and energize the warning light on the cooktop so users won't get burned.

To answer your question... It appears that there is an issue with the front left sensor (and possibly the right as well). The temp warning lamps should NEVER go off immediately. Please call for warranty repair (1-800-GE-CARES). This is an unsafe condition for you and your Family. The warning indicators are there for a reason and should indicate high temp's as long as high temp's are present.

Ge true temp stove top burner wont stay on


dont know how old unit is or how familiar you arewiththe unit, but the burner will need to heat up and cycle off/on. no matter how high or low you set the setting it will heat to a specific temp and cycle off, if hte burner remained RED all the time the glass would crak( so dont go by appearnce of burner, the glass should dictate the temp

Inacurate temperatures


Often the temp gauge is the culprit. To check temps, allow to preheat for 15 minutes. Monitor the highest temp reached after burner shuts off and record. Then monitor lowest temp before burner cycles back on again. Average out readings. Example, if high is 355 and low is 345, average temp is 350. Do this for 3 cycles and average out.
