Question about GE PP950SMSS

1 Answer

Need calibration procedures for my ge cooktop pp950

Tried the calibration procedure that came with the FL large element that I needed to replace, but these procedures will not do what the included instructions tell me to do. It goes into a CAL 1 mode. Is there another calibration procedure I don't know about?

    Trying to explain differently, is there another calibration procedure other then the one that comes with the replacement element? I follow the procedure and it will tell me TECH MODE will flash, it doesn't, CAL 1 does. I don't know what to do from there. Any suggestions?

    I am doing the calibration after I have replaced the original (F161 code) with a GE part and the calibration method was within the box

SOURCE: 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.

SOURCE: Burner only cooks on high heat.

You need the switch for that burner. The contacts inside are stuck together. You will need to pull the unit and separate the glass from the lower body to access it. To get the right switch you need full model and serial number located on a plate at the bottom of the unit.

Your ability to perform this is dependent on how mechanical you are. The Whole unit must be removed from the counter opening and the base unscrewed from the glass, remove knobs before disassembling. For someone mechanical this is not difficult. De-energize whole unit first.

Once the two pieces are separated the remainder is mechanically easier. Disassemble the box on right containing the switches and replace the correct one. Reverse the process for reassembly. Good Luck

SOURCE: GE Cooktop drop-in model # jgp328bec2bb - how to

Turn off the gas,unplug the power.
Take the cooktop out of the cutout and support it on the countertop.
Remove all grates and valve knobs.
Remove all screws from the valves and the burners.
Remove the burner base plates.
You may have screw on the side holding the top to the base,if so,remove these too.
The top will separate from the bottom exposing your parts.
