GE JP688 Induction Cooktop touch panel trouble

Our 22 year old GE Induction Cooktop has a touch control panel that is loosing it's
sensitivity to touch so is getting hard to adjust. The model number is JP688
and I believe the touch panel number is 681764. About ten years after it was
installed the panel failed due to lightning damage. At that time GE had a
repair exchange program so I was able to replaced the panel at a very
reasonable cost. So I'm looking for any information on repair or replacement of
part.

Thanks,
Dexter

SOURCE: One igniter won't work right on my gas cooktop.

If you're not getting the ignitor sparking (you should hear it) when you turn the burner knob on for that burner, it could be that either the ignitor is dirty or caked with some gunk and needs to be cleaned.

The other issue could be that the ignitor is faulty and needs to be replaced. If you want to confirm a faulty ignitor before ordering a new one, you can swap it out with one of the other ignitors on the cook top. Be sure to unplug the cook top from the outlet thou, to prevent getting a shock, as those little sparkers can give you a pretty good jolt!

Just remove the grates and burners to get at the ignitor for cleaning it. To get at the ignitor, youll need to go under the cabinet or counter that the cooktop is installed on in order to remove the ignitor and swap it with one of the other ones. You'll see that these are held in place with a retaining clip you can remove with a flat bladed screwdriver, etc.

If you find that the one that isn't working is faulty, you can order one from your local appliance service store, or get one online. www.searspartsdirect.com lists parts for almost every appliance there is, just enter in the full model number to get a parts list, etc.

Hope you find this Very Helpful and best regards!

The gasket is obviously breaking down so don't use it. Use RTV sealant instead. If the glass top color is too light for the black RTV try clear hi-temp silicon sealant. Best!

SOURCE: I burned out a few circuits on the electronic

Sorry to say,but if there was an improper wiring,it could fry just about everything/anything.To repair it would be time consuming and probably cost about just as much.Labor for a repair center easily starts at $60/hour,maybe more.Repair centers have a parts price minimum markup of 20%.Unless you have a solder gun and a multimeter and solder to repair yourself,it would be a very wide range estimate considering the circumstances.It could cost $40,it could cost $400.If the display is not working especially and needs replacing,that is quite expensive.If you do have some of the equipment,I could guide you on a few things to check first.Although you say a few circuits,if you do not have the knowledge it may just be 1 circuit really,most likely input power to start with which is 2 diodes to check,then go from there.If you have any questions or need more help,just comment here and I will get an autolink to your post and reply ASAP.Good luck,Greg

GE Monogram f160 error code?


When an "F" and a number appear in the display and the cooktop beeps you have a function error code.
Touch the CONTROL LOCK pad.
Disconnect power to the cooktop and then reconnect.
If an F-code appears again, call for service.

Try to centre it so you have an equal distance both front and back that way il has clearance and also looks better than being out of kilter.

How to un lock my GE Profile Induction cook top?


Try turning off the breaker for at least 10 min and re apply power. If this doesn't work, then there's an internal problem.
If after 10 minutes the cooktop is STILL locked:

Push the touch pad that looks like a padlock for at least 5 seconds. The lock light should go out.
