My GE gas cooktop not working. Model#JGP336BEV1B8

2 out of 4 units are not working. The sparks are not igniting and they are not making any clicking sounds. Other 2 units are working. I have to turn on the other working unit to help light the other two units on. Can anyone tell me what I need to do to fix this?

    I have a JGP336 gas cooktop that slowly one by one the igniters on the cooktop are not clicking. I still have one that still works. Is there any way to fix the problem? Where do I get the parts to fix the Problem?

    front 2 burners do not light on my JGP336 gas cooktop.  Ignitor is not clicking.  Back 2 are working.  I've found the ignitor which looks to be a single unit for all 4 burners.  Is this correct and how do I get in to replace it?  If I have to remove the cooktop, I also have to remove the oven to get to the cooktop.

Are the other 2 burners lighting with the spark? If so the other 2 are either shorting before the burners or the sparkers are faulty.

To service, the cooktop needs to be completely removed from the bench and disconnected from the gas as the access is from the bottom.

I could step you through it while watching, but to do it this way is not a good idea. It's probably worth ringing a serviceman.

I have a 30 in jgp336 gas cooktop that fails to ignite when it clicks what is wrong, it worked a few days ago and suddenly stopped working


usually the spark module is not put back together properly.
1 make sure the spark unit is clean
2 make sure the gas jet is pointing towards the sparker
3 make sure there is no aluminum foil or other metal near the sparker pulling the spark away from the gas

GE Profile nat gas cooktop, Model No JGP636BEV3BB won't ignite


If you can hear the clicking sound but are not getting a spark then there is probably a short in the ignition system. Check for any loose wires on the ignition system. Make sure all the wires are properly seated. Make sure the spark module is properly grounded. As far as testing the spark module it should be generating a spark of course. The problem is that the average voltage for the spark module is 15,000 VDC so actual testing of that voltage can be difficult. Is the spark erratic?(should spark evenly). An erratic spark timing is a sign of a bad spark module. Is the spark slow? Check the polarity of the electrical plug. If it is clicking evenly then it is probably arcing somewhere inside the cooktop and you just need to find out where. Also be aware that if you get water into the cooktop that can cause possible grounding of the spark module or ignition system.

The igniter on the right front burner of my GE Gas cooktop does not work....I must use a lighter or match to ignite....What can I do? There is no clicking sound when I turn on the burner?


all burner igniters work at the same time - you may have a faulty electronic spark unit. change the spark unit. go to repair clinic dot come for the unit. also would be wise to check the ingniter start switch on the gas burner control knob
