Burners of electric cooktop not getting red hot

I have GE JP340smooth surface 4 burners electric cooktop which is newly installed. All 4 burners get hot but do not get red hot even with flat base pans on them resulting in very slow cooking.

Is it a calibration/installation issue since all burners behave same way?

Thanks

    Hi,

    In fact it turned out to be inappropriate cooking pan issue. Once we used alloy bottom (absolute flat) pans the cooking was fast. It was probably cycling off & on due to an inappropriate pan.

    Thanks

Hello
Welcome,
Sounds like you have a bad surface heat controller.
Nothing to do but call a hands on tech to replace a part.

Knob is turned off but burner light is still on and burner area warm


If this is a glass top cooktop then yes the bunner light will still be on when you turn it off. Also the bunner area will be still be hot. The reason why the light is still on it is telling you that the bunner surfas is still over 95 degrees. Once the bunner area is under the 95 degrees the light will go off. It is a safty warning for people saying that the surface is still hot.


Good Luck and please rate 4 thumbs up for the free answer.

Cooktop red light is staying on


The red light is on as a safety to let you know the surface is hot. When the light goes out the surface will be safe to touch with out getting a bad burn.

F113


I have the same problem. I had a repair man here and he said the main powder logic board ( WB23T10014) was the problem, it would cost $757 to fix. I ordered the board for $230 and installed it myself but still have the F113 problem.

Cooktop light stays on when cool


the "hot top" indicator lamp is switched by a contact on the plate cut-out. sometimes this cut-out is available as a separate part but often must fit complete plate. by plate i mean the bit that gets hot!
