Question about GE 30 in. Profile JP350 Electric Cooktop
A couple of days ago, some water was accidentally spilled on top of one of the control knobs, causing a loud pop to be heard.
Now none of the elements turn on, and the knob that was splashed is more difficult to turn. Though my first guess was that there was some sort of short, I pulled off the knob and the stem seems to be fairly well sealed.
Any ideas? I'd hate to spend $200+ on an electrician when a new cook top can be bought for about double that, but I thought I'd check here first.
OK, i think the problem took care of itself. definitely got water down in the infinite switch for the lower right burner. let it dry 12 hours and reset the breaker, now works fine. but, i know if i do that again, or if it happens randomly, i will have to replace the switch and seals (available at repairclinic.com)
to do that, you have to remove the cooktop (screwed down by a strap in the back to the back wall of the cabinet) remove the sheetmetal to access the switches and replace. just keep the wiring straight, and ALWAYS replace the seals, they leak over time.
