Replace the burner and receptacle and you should be short free. You may also need to replace the surface element switch too if it doesn't come on at all or stays on high regardless off knob setting.

SOURCE: tripping breaker

I had the same problem. Mine was caused by liquid seeping into the infinite switch (the switch that gets rotated by the knob to set burner temperature). This caused one of the live wires to short to ground within the switch. Bad Design IMHO. Replacing the switch fixed the problem (you can get replacement parts at Searspartsdirect.com - search using the cooktop model number). To get at the switch you need to remove the top by taking off only the top row of screws all around the unit and also in the down draft cavity.

No burners work


Do you have power? Check to make sure the power cord is plugged in. Check for a reset button where it's plugged in to the wall. (It may be tripped). Check your breaker box for a tripped switch.

Fan stopped working on Jennifer air downdraft electric cooktop. Elements still work fine. Circuit breaker did not trip. Took switch out of line by directly connecting fan leads. Still did not work when...


Generally there is a plug for the fan motor under the range, the panel where the drawer would be should lift off, you will then see the power to the fan motor. The fan motor is only 120Volts not 220V

Some times a breaker can be partially tripped and not visible . You should try turning the breaker off and on several times.

My amana model AKT3040 is making a loud "pow" when i turn it on with a white flash under the glass, then the breaker trips. It is 6 years old this month, not under warrenty, Should i try to get a repair...


Amana will confirm this - but I am fairly sure that the elements under the glass are replaceable. Most units by other manufacturers are repairable...but if yours is not, then careful shopping around will save a ton on parts cost.
Labor will vary by market...but it is typically better to have the replacement part when contacting a repair service.

Oh, yes, the snap is a broken burner element. the breaker trips because the resistance on a shorted element is insufficient - and the current draw becomes excessiver - popping the breaker.

Burners on JP326 electric not heating


Sounds like breaker tripped so no 220 to unit. Reset breaker. The burner switch you first turned on probably blew out and needs replacing, so don't turn it on again. If all else works ok, then that is it. Unless you are handy you may want to call the repair man.

GE Cooktop JP930 surface element not working


It sounds like the burner needs to be replaced. When they burn out sometimes they short out to ground. The cooktop will have to be removed from the counter and the glass top opened. You will probably be able to see where the element is burned out. Replace it and you should be fine. If it is too expensive to fix just disconnect the wires to the burner where they attach to the control . Then you can use the remaining burners. I really don't know what a replacement burner costs. An open coil is around $30.
