Question about GE 30 in. Profile JP350 Electric Cooktop
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.
