Ge profile pp950 and ge profile pt916 oven

I am trying to put the cooktop (pp950) above the wall oven (pt916). some appliance stores say it will fit some say it won't. Ge says yes, but they also said yes to having a pp945 cooktop above the SAME oven and I tried it and it did not fit. Label on oven (ge profile pt916 says pp950 and pp942 will fit on top but not pp945), except 2 appliance stores say pp950 is really just like the pp945 and will NOT fit. I already bought and returned(thank god) the pp945 because it did NOT fit, i do not want to buy the pp950 and have it not fit to. 1-800-ge cares was NOOOOOOOOOOOO help. they say all the cooktops fit over the oven pt916. can you help?

Hello mkerfoot, I know the feeling. The same complaint I hear about on SS. I just sink type dish washing detergent to clean the grease off and a paper towel with vinegar water solution. For heavy staining on the burner area, apply the dw detergent full strenght and let it sit to loosen the debre. Hope this helps.

SOURCE: Stained gas range burner grates

You might try placing them in the oven and running a them through a clean cycle. I did the with some ceramic coated drip pans and it worked great. Don't do this with chrome plated things as it will darken the chrome finish. Don't ask me how I know this. :)

SOURCE: Stained gas range burner grates

Hey y'all. I have the same lame GE profile gas cooktop with the gray grates and burner covers. I know this is the expensive way to go, but I use Easy-Off "self-cleaning oven" oven cleaning spray. For about $5, you get 3 cleanings. It is a pain to do, but I have better things to do than scrub these grates all the time. I don't know why, but the baked on crud just drives me crazy. I tried everything to clean them completely. I even tried to scrub the darn things with a kitchen pumice stone(sold at walmart)but it is impossible to get the curvy areas clean. Now the paint has started to wear off on the burner covers.

I do not use the oven cleaner on the cooktop itself. I use soft-scrub with baking soda, then cover the cooktop with a sheet of heavy duty aluminum foil and cut out holes for the burners. This keeps most of the spills contained, and helps with cleanup.

I visited to the GE parts web page, and they only sell gray grates and covers. I am going to buy black BBQ grill paint(spray can)from Home Depot and try it on the burner covers first. They are the least expensive to replace if it fails, and if it works, I will paint the grates with this high temperature paint. I will keep you posted on the results.

SOURCE: can't get GE profile cooktop clean

Don't buy one is a good start unless you like to spend a few hours everyday attempting to make it look clean. If you are OC you'll love the cooktop BTW. Crappy engineering and source selection. Include it in the price when you move.

SOURCE: 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.

How do i lock the self cleaning ge oven door when i put it on self clean

If you have a self cleaning oven, the door will lock automatically as the self cleaning begins. Give it some time ,it will happen. When cleaning is done it will take a while for the door to unlock. GOOD LUCK FRIEND.

GE Profile cooktop JP360. Trying to remove cooktop to install new granite countertops. Also have GE built in oven JTP 15 below. Called G.E. Customer Service today and was told to just pry the top off...

Hi marilynmcdon,

You can do it yourself. These cook tops are not glued to the granite at all (Or is not supposed to be). Simply lift is up slowly, start from the side, and lift it slowly. If done carefully you won't damage anything.

Hope this helps

Cleaning grates of GE profile gas stove

Sounds crazy, but this works. Soak the grates in warm to hot water with 2 dryer sheets (Bounce), let them soak for an hour or two. Unbeliveable how they came clean. I did have to use a Scotch Brite pad on the two that I use most, but it sure beats replacing them.

GE electric cooktop

Try looking at the junction box that it is connected to. Maybe one or more of the wires have burned off or come loose from the wire nuts. How many amps is the breaker? Most electric codes require separate circuits (Breakers) for each appliance. First turn off the breaker. There should be an outlet box of some kind on the wall or behind the cabinet. Follow the wire from the cooktop and see where it goes. Open it up and check if any wires are burnt or loose. If it was installed wrong I would change it. Most cooktops shouldn't be fused at more than 30 amps. Single ovens the same, double ovens up to 45 amps. The problem is if they used an old range outlet with 6 gauge wire and tried to connect both appliances to the same wire. This is hard to do without it coming loose.
