Cleaning cast iron burner racks on gas spectra?

How can I clean the cast iron burner racks on the GE Spectra gas stove? They are gray and I have not found a thing that can clean them without scratching the enamel. This causes everything to stick to the racks and turn brown.

Ge Spectra Xl44-three of 4 gas burners will not ignite without a match.

Electric gas igniters sometimes get stuck in one position causing a clicking sound. The clicking sound that you hear is the electric arc that is pulsing from the igniter conductor (wire) to ground (the gas burner). It receives power from the electrical outlet that the stove is plugged into.
Residue from food and sometimes cleaning products may be preventing the igniter from producing a spark (Arc) to the base of the burner. This is a common problem that occurs when the stove has been cleaned or food is allowed to build up. Make sure that the igniter and the burner base are clean and dry. This will help with proper operation. Oven cleaner and a small tooth brush may be used to accomplish this. Another problem with ignition may occur if you have too little (touching) or too much space between the igniter and the base of the burner; it will prevent the burner from igniting. You should only have a little more space than the thickness of a nickel between the burner base and the igniter. A good “blue” arc from the igniter to the burner base is optimal. If this doesn’t work, you may need to replace the electric igniter module. Good luck.

What type of grids are the best and why, either porcelain over cast iron, or just cast iron.

The porcelain is easier to clean,and wont rust,but it can also be chipped off if dropped.Its really a personal choice after that.there is nothing wrong with the plain old cast iron ones.

Getting to the Pilot

Your model JGBP28DED2WH uses spark ignition on the stove top burners, and a glow bar ignitor, part number WB2X9154 for the oven and broiler. To get to the bake ignitor if oven will not light: Take the racks out of the oven. Remove oven floor by removing two screws at back of oven floor and lifting floor. Remove the square metal flame spreader to get to the burner / ignitor assembly. (note: The ignitor may still glow when you try it, but usually is still the problem)

Try cleaning the sparker with file to better the spark. If you can adjust the angle of the sparker closer to the gas nozzle would help to.

the reason they tell you not to do that is so the racks do not warp. I wouldn't do it. I did once accidently leave the racks in and they were fine that one time but I have never done it again or left any thing in. The oven gets up to a high heat and anything in it will retain that heat.

Ray, sometimes the burners get gunked up. Remove the cap and burner and see if the small orifice that is located by the spark electrode is clogged. Clean it out with a paper clip. Make sure the burner cap has good contact with the burner. back.
