It should be under warranty I would get a hold of the company you bought it from and get it checked out. Do not do anything to it or they will not cover it..

GE Stove. Model: JSP42S K5SS Problem: Left front burner is always on even turn to Off posittion. The burner indicator is on and the surface is alway hot. The stove is only 2 years old and well...


This is most certainly the infinite switch. If you pull the knob off for this eye, the shaft you see is part of that switch. You need to disconnect power to the appliance and replace it.

Indicator light stays on when eye(s) are turned off


The stove indicator light normal stay on until the burner cools off, and then the indicator light goes off, this is to prevent someone from touching the burner, alerting them that the stove is still hot.

I have a new ge range. When I turn on the left


mvek,
If you could see through the glass, you'd see "temperature sensors" located near the elements. They're very sensitive little guys, and rightly so! Their job is to detect temps and energize the warning light on the cooktop so users won't get burned.

To answer your question... It appears that there is an issue with the front left sensor (and possibly the right as well). The temp warning lamps should NEVER go off immediately. Please call for warranty repair (1-800-GE-CARES). This is an unsafe condition for you and your Family. The warning indicators are there for a reason and should indicate high temp's as long as high temp's are present.

Top of stove hot when oven on


I suspect this may have been happening for quite some time and you may never have noticed it. MANY ovens vent near one of the stove eyes. If you lift the cooktop for 'servicing', I bet you see the little vent. It is usually in the back right underneath the cooking surface. Check to make sure it is not blocked, clogged or has rusted out/off.

Pilot Light Wont Light


Take off the top cover plate inside the oven. Now with the door open turn the oven on does the hot surface glow? If it doesn't glow then you have a bad igniter and needs to be replaced. What ever you do don't touch the surface of the new igniter human oil will shorten the life of the igniter. now if the hot surface glows then the gas valve is bad and need to be replaced. I'm betting it's the hot surface.

The hot surface indicator light remains ON all the time.


Your hot surface indicator light might have a short that causes it to stay on all of the time. If you can, try unplugging it for a little while and plugging it back up. If the light is still on, you have a short. You can still use the stove, but the light staying on will not be any help to you.

hi,
the burner needs to be replaced, and as far as the oven goes, if you get the same code when you try to use the broiler setting you may need a new control panel. there should be an envelope on the back of the stove with papers in it, that is a tech guide, it should tell you what that code means. depending on the overall condition of the stove it may be better to replace it then fix it.
