GE JP670 The large burner element on my GE JP670 electric cooktop would come on and off intermittently. Sometimes it would not come on at all. Other times after it came on and was heating the food it would go off. I replaced the burner element, but it still does the same thing. If the problem is the infinite switch. Where is it located in the cooktop and how do I replace it?

What holds the spring assembly onto the bar assembly is just two small prongs. Use a pliers on the end that protrudes through the bar, squeezing the prongs together, and it should come out fairly easily.

SOURCE: cooktop burner doesn't switch between small and large

The burners are controlled by switches, that are the one you turn when you turn the knob. Iwf the burner does not switch to high mode than you need to change the switch.
The switch for your appliance has part number:
You can by the part from manufacturer clicking here.

Here is an exploded view of your kitchen panel.


The switch is indicated with number 3 in the picture, There should be at least ttwo of them, depending on the model. That is what you need to replace.
Its price is $40.50 from GE.

Take out the element and look at the connecting ends see if there are char or burn marks where they make the connection. One thing you might try doing is cleaning the connections, if that does'nt work you will probably need to replace the element.

Hope this helps ya

SOURCE: Burner Heating element doesn't heat

Check power to element with a voltmeter. If there is power, the element is bad. If not power, than switch or relay is likely faulty. You can also test them with an ohmmeter

I want to lift the cook top on GE range jbp82shss so that I can clean out all the dust. can I do this

Yes. Disconnect power to range. Open oven door and remove hex head screws at front edge of cooktop from the bottom side. Lift up front of cooktop. Burner units can then be removed from the underside of the cooktop. Be careful not to damage the gray insulating material around the burner elements if you remove the elements from the cooktop glass.

Large burner elements ignite, and igniter spark fails to stop, then the burner shuts off as if ignition failed. Tiny central burner element does NOT light at any time. Apparently the safety cutoff...

There is a thermistor that must be in the flame area that needs to get hot. When hot it will turn the igniter off and keep the flame on. Check it's location and if it is in the flame then it needs to be replaced. not sure about the central flame problem. could be the switch.

Whirlpool awo3561 fault showing as f06? what does

"F06" is a Motor Speed error code. It means the motor is not spinning, or you have a loss of commuincations between the Motor Control Unit (MCU), Central Control Unit (CCU) or Drive Motor. The following link explains:

The easiest place to start would be to verify all your connections between the Drive Motor and MCU are intact and not corroded. Then, perform resistance checks on the Drive Motor windings.

For ease of troubleshooting, UNPLUG the washer and remove the top panel by removing the three screws that hold it in place in the rear of the washer. With the screws removed, the panel will slide back, then off. Position the washer where you have full access to the rear. Remove the back panel of washer. With the top and back removed you will have full access to the CCU, MCU and Drive Motor.

If you have questions along the way, or if you require addtional assistance, please let me know. I hope you find this information helpful.

My electric stove top burner only works on high

This is for the glass top units. well i'm not sure if your problem is with your large or small single burner or the large expandable burner. If it's the large or small single burner replace the burner and if it the expandable also replace the burner. If you have a coil burner replace the infinite switch. Good luck hope this helps you.

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.

Burner always on high

I have had this same problem on the JP350.

I have replaced the switch several times, and am now tempted to replace the heating element and the switch the next time it becomes constant (currently, it is intermittent... which has led to some burnt food).
