Question about SNK Caldera CASMT364E 36 in. Electric Cooktop

Open Question

Caldera CMT364electric cooktop will work correctly for about 10 minutes then all hell breaks loose!! All the burners start coming on and then shutting off without anyone being near, the beeper is going constantly, you cannot turn any of the burners off (or on for that matter). The only way to get control back is to throw the breaker switch. I dare not leave the house until the breaker is off. Can anyone help or give me a contact number, as both the 800 numbers I have are disconnected. This cooktop is 13 months old.

Just put in a new Caldera LPGas cooktop the flame is yellow and putting soot on pots how can I adjust air to correct this?


you stove may have jets for natural gas rather than bottled gas the calorific value of natural gas is different to propane and the jets are larger because of this. if using bottled gas then you will get yellow flame and soot because there is too much gas to burn properly check your installation manual for procedure to change the jets for each gas

I have a GE Profile cooktop jp930 (less than 5 yrs old) that appears to have lost all power. It was working fine when I turned it on and about 10 minutes later it lost power. I checked the fuse box and...


first check if power is getting to the cook top(there should be a box outside where the wire goes in. After that you have to check if the power makes it to the main board/connector to see if the individual burners are working. My guess is that there is a loose wire at the connection they redid when you redid your counters

Ignitor does not spark on first turn as stated in manual. I have to turn the knob past "lite" before flame comes on.


Is it just one burner knob that does that are all of them? If it is just one then the igniter switch built into the burner knob might be out of alignment or loose. This happens most of the time due to a cracked switch housing(made of plastic). This can also happen if the actual burner knob is cracked and/or loose. If all the burners do this then it is just the way the cooktop works. The best way to get the burners to light is by slowly turning them on until they light and not pay attention to the "light" mark. You might need to turn it just past the "light" mark for the burner to come on.

The electronic spark continues after the burner is lit. It continues even if the burner is turned off. this continues for about a minute before it stops


You have one of your spark switches sticking. It may have come loose or possibly grease has migrated into it.
Remove the switch panel and check the switches for a loose or broken switch.
There is a switch behind every surface burner knob.
They must be seated firmly to work correctly.

Whirlpool electric Cooktop's one burner not heating


Hi,

Initially, it could either be:
  • open heating element (most likely);
  • open temperature limiter (least likely);
  • faulty/loose connection/wiring (a possibility).
Please confirm that it is a Whirlpool RCC3024 Electric Cooktop.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information. Good luck and kind regards. Thank you for using FixYa.

Starter keep trying to start when cook top is off.


If you have recently cleaned unit and got moisture behind knobs, this may stop when the spark switches dry out. If not you will need to replace spark switches behind the knobs.

Dacor gas range igniter clicking


I did have the same problem after the house keeping people done with cleaning. They used window/surface cleaner. First I asked them not to clean the ignitor with any cleaner. Here is what I did to solve the problem
I took scotch scour pad (one that you use for washing dishes), In dry state I polished ignitor switch. It is abrading the residuals and deposits on the top and polishing it. Don't use any thing more abrasive than that. MAGIC - I don't have any more problem.
