Not to hard. Remove knob and retaining but diconect wire and install new one. Now the ignitor may have got wet and not generating a spark. Just let it dry it probably will start working again. Give it some time.

Not at all. Just google your model number and add 'control'. Youtube works the same way. Don't forget to unplug the unit before you work on it.

Burner light stays on when burner is turned off

Each burner has a sensor in it. These sensors will STICK and stay on even if the burner is off. Usually occurs with the burner that is used the most such as for chicken frying and such. If the burner eye is not the problem then the switch that controls the burner would be the next thing to check. An interesting video that show switch failures:

Burner will not get hot enough

When the burner arced out it probably also ruined the switch. Most switches on a standard electric range have 5 wires. 2 wires to the burner. 2 hot wires from power and a smaller wire which connects to the indicator light marked P. It is easy to test the switch Unplug the stove. Turn the suspect switch on wide open. Check for continuity between the 2 terminals going out to the burner marked H1 and H2
If you cannot get a reading then the switch has failed. Note: when replacing the switch usually on most stove the replacement will not be or look like the original HOWEVER it will still have L1 and L2 H1 and H2 and P but the terminals are not always in the same order. If you fail to correctly connect the new switch you will fry 2 switches when both get turned on. Ouch!

I have a 1960's 40" GE double oven range. Both large burners quit working (the ends of the elements are melted in the sockets) the clock and the accessory plug as well. All of this happened at one time....

No the switches need replacing. This training video shows how those switches work and will give you a better idea of what to do: HERE

Since you might have 2 switches gone bad and the originals will not be available the new parts even though ordered from GE will be generic in nature, (so you might want to find the old 5500-200 robertshaw control (that is what GE uses shhh don't tell nobody) When using the generic switches pay attention to the wiring. L1 and L2 won't be in the same location and when connected both switches will blow(not good) The old switch has 2 wires to burner (H1 and H2) and two wires from source (L1 and L2) and P for pilot to turn on a light on the top telling burners is on. Get em right so your honey will think you is a brainiac! LOL

Infinite switch sparking!!!!

You have a short somewhere between the switch and the burner connector. Probably a wire's insulation has worn away or melted and is allowing the wire to contact the metal housing somewhere. You will see arc marks wherever the short is located. Look carefully where the wire passes through any holes or where sharp turns are encountered.

Six burner gas cooktop

My husband figured it out.....when we took the knobs off, I, of course, washed the area they had been sitting on, thereby spilling some water into the open part which contained the wires leading to the igniters.  A short time with a hair dryer sorting things out.

The problem is the pot(s) is too far from the heat. Jenn-air needs to make a burner cover that is closer to the burner for boiling water...
