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

Hot surface light stays on on GE Profile Cooktop model JP989 and On does not light for left burners. This is only happening on left burners. Left front burner goes to high with any setting on the switch...


You could have a shorted burner, if it is not then you may have gotten a bad part.

always unplug electricity before attempting to repair on any electrical appliance

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.

I did not receive instructions with my G E Profile cook top Model No. 80030750434). There is a build up on the elements which I am having problems removing. Should the top be scraped while the stove is hot or cold? What is the best cleaning product to use?
