Question about GE 36 in.JGP970 Gas Cooktop
Installing GE gas cooktop JGP970. Due to dimension for downdraft system and location of gas inlet on cooktop, I have to use a 90 degree elbow between the cooktop and the pressure regulator. Instruction manual says to connect the regulator directly to the cooktop, but seems to imply by a diagram that the installation I used may be OK if installed above a built in oven. Problem: I am hardly getting any gas to the cooktop, only the largest unit will ignite and has a very small flame. From the stub I have used a 24 inch 5/8 OD flexible gas line with 1/2 inch connectors. The inlet on the cooktop is a 3/8. Any suggestions?

Bret, lets give this a try. 1st look at the regulator. There is an arrow on it that has to point towards the cooktop. Put is on backwards and very little gas flow. I always advise this first as I have seen people tell me it is correct and when I got out there it was reversed. 2nd was this used as a live demo unit on Propane? If you are on natural gas, this will also happen. The 3rd thing I also check for in something in the gas line on the cooktop side. I had a unit that got some packing in the line and at 5 wc for natural gas, it doesn't take much to restrict. Hope this helps.
