Question about GE Profile Spectra JGBP90 Gas Kitchen Range
Two plastic burner knobs have melted. I believe it happened as a result of having the oven door open during broiling, but I'm not certain. I want to replace them with a heavier metal knob, but have not been able to find one that is compatible. Please advise. Thank you.
I had the same problem and searched extensively for a solution. They even have a video from GE on the net telling you how to avoid melting them, which is basically don't open to broil and make sure the seal is good on the oven. Essentially, don't use their oven normally like the rest of the ovens in the world. Finally I went to a few show rooms to look for a knob to substitute for the garbage ones from GE. On one of the new models they have a solid cast stainless knob (with a plastic shaft, I think it is delrin) which looks identical but has a longer shaft. I obtained the PN which is WB03T10262 and ordered one. I trimmed the shaft length to match the length of the defective knob with a hack saw, and had to trim out some mold flashing in the cavity. After a couple of fittings I was finshed and it looks fine. I then ordered 3 more from the Appliance Zone for $15.98 each. GE's price for the same part was $25.25!!

Funny -- two knobs have melted on our range as well during broiling. I think this is a defect...

I was told by a GE repair man that the damage was done not by heat but by the degreaser soap I used to clean the knobs. He said I could use only liquid dish washing soap on them. They should be made of stainless steel. I will never buy a stove with plastic control knobs again. I wish someone had told me that the ones on my stainless stove were actually made of plastic painted to look like stainless." Let the buyer beware."

SOURCE: ge profile range knobs melt
Same problem as well. Hoping to buy universal fit parts as GE wants $16/piece (x6) to replace the knobs. They WILL NOT cover under warranty.
HORRIBLE SUPPORT, POOR QUALITY PRODUCT!
