Front right burner on GE glass top range not working

The front right burner of our GE glass top range stopped working in the middle of cooking. The model number of the stove is JBP66GW1WH. When we turn the dial the indicator light comes on to tell us that the burner is on, but the burner itself doesn't light up or produce any heat. Can anyone tell me what could be wrong with it, or what part I would need to replace. The other three burners are working, and the one that broke is the one we use the most. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!!

If you have the glass cooktop slide-in model, the problem is most likely the burner "ribbon' under the glass top for the small burner has come loose. I fixed mine with only a phillips-head screwdriver, needle-nosed pliers, and a 1/4" wrench (1/4" socket on the end of a nutdriver works better). Here are the steps I took to fix it: 1) Slide the oven out from the counter so the sides of the oven are clear of the counter top. 2) Remove the phillips head screws-1 on each side of the oven near the top/rear. These will be the only phillips-head screws you will need to remove. 3) Open the oven door and remove the 4 hex-head screws at the top/front/inside the oven- there are 2 on each side which follow the opening of the door. Then close the door. 4) Pull off the burner knobs by gripping them and pulling straight up. Don't worry, you will not break them but you will need to give them a good tug. 5) Remove the burner retaining nuts that are under the knobs-you may need a wrench to loosen them but only tighten them by hand when reinstalling. 6) Pull the face of the control panel away from the oven slowly until you see a ribbon connector on the right side and then disconnect the ribbon and remove the face plate from the oven. 7) Remove the 4 hex-head screws from the face plate bracket (the plastic part that was holding the face plate) and pull the bracket toward the front of the oven until it flops over and rests on the oven door handle. 8) remove the 2 black screws holding down the glass top-one on each side of the oven-the screw heads face the front of the oven. 9) Disconnect the two wiring harnesses attached to the cook top. Don't worry, they only fit one way so you don't need to label them. 10) Lift the cook top until the wiring harnesses are clear of the holes and place it upside down on a flat surrface. 11) Remove the two retaining bracket screws and brackets from each side of the non-working burner. 12) Slowly lift the burner and flip it upwards until you see the ribbon coils. It should not be necessary to disconnect any wires. 13) Look at the ribbon coils very carefully to see if any of them are disconnected from their main connection points. If so, feed the ribbon back inside the pinch point (you may need a small screwdriver to open the pinch point first) and then use a pair of needle-nosed pliers to pinch the ribbon to hold it in place. I had to use a voltage meter set in the OHM position to find where mine were disconnected. Once you pinch the ribbon end back into place, put everything back together in reverse order. If your burner still does not work, your burner knob switch may be bad. I hope this helps. Good Luck!

Hotpoint Glasstop Stove - Burner turns on by itself


I have a GE stove which I purchased in 2004, and it is doing the same. I heard beeping coming from the kitchen in the middle of the night . I went to the kitchen and the oven was on by itself. I have been unplugging it when not using it. Maybe this could be a recall.

My front left burner on elec.range model FEFL67GCA does not work.


If it's just quit all of a sudden then I assume it's burned out.You will have to remove the glass top to get to it. The new burner has two wire connectors that plug in. CAUTION: Make sure you disconnect electrcal power to the stove before working on this!

Stove top burners on glass stove seem to have a governor on them


My initial attempt at solving the problem was to contact the GE customer service phone line.  When I explained the problem, the representative had no clue how to solve it, and referred me to the service organization.  The representative at the service organization was equally clueless, and suggested scheduling a service call at $100 plus parts and labor.
This is all quite disappointing; these customer and service representatives obviously have no training in solving the simplest of problems.  This is okay if GE's goal is to maximize service revenue.  But, I can tell you I would be very unhappy to have a technician visit my house, for $100, only to be told I was using a pot or a pan that was designed incorrectly for a glass cook top.
I solved the problem by going to the web site www.geappliances.com, opening the user manual, and looking under trouble shooting.  The first problem mentioned is exactly as described above.  The problem is inappropriate cooking appliances.  It is not possible to transfer heat efficiently if the pot you're using has a rim or lip on the bottom.  That is, the pot must sit flat on the glass cook-top, it cannot be raised off the cooking surface by a lip that elevated the pot from the surface.  These pots are designed to be used with gas flames, not a glass cook top.

The right front burner won't heat


The switch probably failed. Remove power. Take off the top rear cover and inspect the switch for signs of discoloration (burned or brown areas). If looks OK then maybe the element failed.
