Broken selector switch

I have GE JP 350 glass cooktop. Selector switch for front burner that changes from 6 to 9 inch heating has broken plastic shaft. Replacement switch is WB24X449 (GE). What are steps to open cooktop to replace switch? Is this repair difficult? Anything to lookout for? Do I need anything other than switch? Thanks, GW

TURN OFF CIRCUIT BREAKER. Lift out cooktop, remove all machine screws holding the glass frame. Remove plastic knobs and lift glass top straight up. Make sure rubber gromits are not ripped or torn. Unscrew the small screws on the selector switch and then lift up and tilt over the small aluminum chasis holding the switches to expose the wiring connections. Pull off the wires and pull out the defective switch. Replacre switch, connect wires, re-seat switch chasis, and secure switch with screws. Carefully drop in the glasstop lining up the switch shafts and the rubber grommets. Secure the top with machine screws and drop back in the cutout.

Light "Burner On" stays on all the time on my electric stove GE model JBS27WH2WW


I have a GE Range Model JBS27W H2WW and the serial# XXXXX that I was cooking on and the back burner starting throwing out sparks and blew a hole in the coil and the drip pan. Now the light Burner on is staying on and I switched the 8 inch burner in the front with this 8 inch burner and still cannot get it to work.

Both 6" plates on samet hob not getting hot enough. Replaced both plates changed, but still have same problem, not getting hot enough. What can problem be? Plates are getting hot but not hot enough to boil...


-The burner itself has burn connector. Take it out and check. If it burn very bad then need to replace new burner. Or may be the connector itself.


Good luck

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

Not igniting


Probably broken switch. or perhaps broken ignitor circuit. If only one burner is broken is then it is switch. if they all don't work check the ignigitor circuit.
