You understand, of course, that that is how the temperature of the smooth-sop elements are regulated - by turning on and off. When the setting is low, they WILL be off more than they are on. And as you turn them up higher, they will be on longer and off shorter. At High, they should be on 95% to 100% of the time. If not, then you've got a bad control (also called an infinite switch).

SOURCE: ceramic/glass top stove

Lift the ceramic top and look at the burnner to see if it is bad or not.
You only have to take 2 screws in the front of the ceramic top at the bottom, just open the oven door and look at the corners.
Don't forget to unplug the stove first

SOURCE: ge spectra gas stove top not lighting

If your top burners are not lighting or will not work, it is possible that the burners have become dirty or wet. Please follow the troubleshooting directions below before calling service:

  1. Turn you burner to the Lite position:

    If you hear clicking or sparking, go to Step 2.

    If you do not, check your circuit breakers. If the circuit breaker is ok, we recommend that you schedule service by calling 1-800-432-2737 or schedule service online.

  2. Clean the burner and electrode:

    First remove the burner grate, cap, and head. Use a needle or paper clip to poke through the holes on the burner head. Re-assemble and try the burner.

    Remove the burner grate, cap, and head. Even if it looks clean, wipe the tip of the electrode with a clean, dry paper towel and PRESS IT DOWN. Re-assemble and try the burner, again.

    Check to see if the burner works, If not, then go to Step 3.

  3. Re-assemble - Make sure that each burner top matches its burner bottom. The burner top will lay flat if put on correctly.

    Check to see if the burner works, If not, then go to Step 4.

  4. The spark igniter is operating properly, but the burner is still not lighting. At this point, we would recommend that you schedule service by calling 1-800-432-2737 or schedule service online.

Problem with Kitchenaid Electric Range Stove Top Burner


there may be a loose connection in either the pipe or on the burner rings on the surface. Some stoves have a safety cutoff if gas supply is interrupted to avoid prolonged gas supply.

What are you using to clean the stove? Only cleaners made for ceran type tops should be used according to directions. Do not use enamel coated pans or glass pans on your cooktop.If you have a boil over, turn off the burner and change to a different burner immediately. Clean up the spill completely before cooking on that burner again. Use a flat edge razor to clean tough residue. Your cooktop will look new for years to come, even with heavy use.

As far as the scratch, don't use abrasive cleaners on the top and only use pots and pans with flat bottoms. If you do use cast iron pans, never scoot them around on the top.

Spot on Jenn Air smooth cook top stove with down draft.


Use Cooktop Cleaner with a soft micro cloth. Don't use water. Buff until the mark disappears. Hint: Never clean the cooktop until it is completely cool to touch as doing so makes cleaning much harder. Never use abrasives on the glass or abrasive cast iron skillets.

My smooth top burner will not work


The #1 most likely problem is that you don't have 240 volts to the unit. Your clock and lights will come on but not the burners or the oven elements. Turn off your breaker and then back on. If this doesn't correct the issue...#2 Check your cord and the terminal where it attaches to the stove for a burnt connection, WITH THE POWER OFF!!! #3 Call a technician.

Cleaning of stove top


I assume you are talking about a glass smooth top stove. Use any of the liquid polishing type cleaners made for this use. Regular use leaves a build up that makes it easier to clean without streaking.
