Question about GE Profile Spectra JGBP85 Gas Kitchen Range

Where is a gas shut off valve for a GE gas cooktop?

I've just received an inspection report regarding my "for sale" house. The problem reads,

"The gas shut-off valve is difficult to get to or is missing (not located) at the kitchen cooktop. This is a concern in the event of an emergency and the need for quick access to turn off supply. Appliance technician to confirm location or install a gas shut-off valve."

Is there ever a gas shut-off valve at the cooktop or would the shut-off valve only be at the gas meter outside?

I assume you have found an answer by now, but for the record, they are referring to an *Appliance* gas shutoff valve, not the major one for the home. Each gas appliance should have an easily accessible shut of valve (for a cooktop, it would typically be in the cabinet below). Older homes with basements may have it located there - the idea is to be able to shut the gas off to that individual appliance.

My gas cooktop is contiuing a clicking sound to start the gas burner. it is not the color of the flame or that stuff. Just the starter keeps trying to start. the gas burner that is all. Blair


Hello Blair
Does the clicking or spark stop with all knobs in off position? If so it's probably the one burner valve for the one you're trying to light ,stuck in light mode,sending signal to module.Have that burner valve replaced.($50). (2) If clicking continues even though everything is off, it could be any one of the burner valves or your ignition module is messed up .You would have to pull wire off each burner valve one by one to find the offending valve . If not valves then suspect ignition module.
Easily fixed either way.



Feedback appreciated !

Gas cooktop never stop clicking 4 of them just keep starting without stop. I opened it and checked the wire, no problem.


Hi mikegou100,

I believe your ignition switches have come in to contact with either water or moisture.

Please read my below Tip on how to fix the problem:

If it does not solve your problem, I'd suggest replacing the ignition switches.

Kind Regards

I have ge jgp337 . My gas stove started ingniting without turning the burners on and all flame started coming out from all 4 burners. i switched off the electric switch now even after 2...


I've seen this problem before. It happens when spillage get's into the ignitor switches. The switches are mounted on top of the gas turn-on valves. You have to replace all the ignitor switches because they are connected into wire harness. Rich

GE Cooktop drop-in model # jgp328bec2bb - how to take apart the cooktop,I need to replace the spark ignitor switch harness.


Turn off the gas,unplug the power.
Take the cooktop out of the cutout and support it on the countertop.
Remove all grates and valve knobs.
Remove all screws from the valves and the burners.
Remove the burner base plates.
You may have screw on the side holding the top to the base,if so,remove these too.
The top will separate from the bottom exposing your parts.

Have a four burner gas GE Profile cooktop. How do


The igniter module is working fine. One of the switches (which are on each valve shaft) is stuck or shorted out. Pull a wire off each one at a time to determine which one is bad. Careful! 120 volts to each wire. Also, this can happen after you spill water into the valve area, if that sounds right, let it dry out.

GE stovetop with propane, too hot to simmer


I think you are right. Check for an optional valve for propane in your service manual or online on an appliance parts website. You can look up a schematic of all the basic parts.

Burner control will not depress or turn. This is a fairly new GE gas cooktop and this burner has been used only a couple of times.


constantly cleaning with spray cleaner or too much water may have leaked down into the steam of the valve and rusted it. replace the valve and lycon switch
