Question about GE 30 in. Profile JP989 Electric Cooktop
I have a 2002-03 ge profile oven with a glass cooktop. The cooktop has 4 regular size knobs and 2 small knobs (I don't know what they are for). One of the small knobs is located before the first knob on the cooktop and the other small knob is in the middle of the regular size knobs. There is a light associated with the 2 small knobs when you turn them on. I have not turned either knob on, but the light is on and won't go off. It's getting dimmer and dimmer. I guess it's about to burn out, but I was wondering why it's on and what the 2 small knobs are for. I cannot locate a manual on anything but the oven and the microwave, nothing on the cooktop. I don't know if the product number is correct, but it is an electric cooktop. Please help!
If the knobs will not push down and turn, this indicates the gas valve stem has become contaminated with cooking debris. The only solution to this, would be to replace the gas valves. With the cooktop more than 10ys old, parts may be difficult to find. If you can find parts, they will probably be prohibitively expensive.

The cooktop will need to be removed from the counter. Turn it upside down and remove the screws. The biggest problem will be removing the cooktop from the counter. Sometimes it is not worth fixing as the part could cost around $400. NEVER use a cracked top as it could suddenly explode. This is tempered glass and very unstable if cracked or chipped.

Hello mkerfoot, I know the feeling. The same complaint I hear about on SS. I just sink type dish washing detergent to clean the grease off and a paper towel with vinegar water solution. For heavy staining on the burner area, apply the dw detergent full strenght and let it sit to loosen the debre. Hope this helps.

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.
