Question about GE Cooktops

Right front (large) burner indicates hot, won't work, flashes F153

My GE Monogram radiant cooktop has generated a fault code. The indicator for the front right (the largest heat element) stays lit, and when I try to turn on the front right, the cooktop beeps and flashes "F153". Knocking the breaker for 60 seconds doesn't clear the code.

    the largest burner on the right will not come on flashes f153 and the hot surface light is on

    the red sensor light stayed on for over 24 hours saying one of the eyes was hot. Tried to heat the unit again hoping the light would go off, it did not. after pushing more buttons I got an f143, but I don't have a list of faults to check as the manual suggests.

I hade a code 153 also. Changed the element(costly-$200) and had to recalibrate the pan sensors(in the manual). All works fine now.

Are there problems with the kenmore 36-in. radiant cooktops 42749 hot surface indicator lights?


Most likely the problem is in the heat control switch.Cannot be repaired you will have to replace it. To make sure, swap it with one of the other burners that do not have the problem. If the problem goes away, you know its the switch.

What do error codes E51, E52, and E53 indicate?


This link lists the error codes for your cooktop: Needapplianceparts com

Specifically, it's a "sensor break" in your front and center burners.
The solutions they recommend:
* Verify element temperature sensor is correctly connected to the generator circuit board
* Replace element if temperature sensor resistor value is not approximately 1000 ohms (blue wires) at room temperature
* Replace associated generator circuit board

One unit show fault code F153


Hi - I've been having the same problem. GE tech service in St. Louis, MO has been a joke. 1st tech call cancelled 30 minutes before appointment. 2nd tech call to diagnose the F153 code I had already provided when I scheduled service on-line cost $74.95 and the tech didn't have the part on his truck. 3rd tech call a new tech shows up, has no knowledge of previous call diagnosis, opens the box sent to my home by GE and announces that the previous guy ordered the wrong part! We're on the 4th call. My cook top right front burner has not worked for a month. I've contacted GE corporate. The part you need (at least I need) for the right front burner which is a large burner is: WB30T10062. If I knew how to, I'd repair this myself. I don't have the extended warranty. The part is covered because my cooktop is only two years old (parts warrantied for five years) but labor is estimated to cost almost $200....plus the $74.95 "diagnostic" visit. A total rip-off. My advice, if you've got this cooktop, it's still under warranty and you aren't using all of the burners on a regular basis: start using them! The tech guy said most people use that front right burner alot and it eventually malfunctions (code F153). His suggestion was to start using the other burners on a regular basis, too, so that when they go out, at least the part will fall under the five-year warranty! When this cook top is done, I'm going to get a gas stove with "old fashioned burners" and it won't be GE!
