Sounds as tho you are only getting 120 volts versus the 240 you should have. Your breaker needs to be at least 30 amp double pole rating. 240 volt

We Have a GE Model JVM 3670BF001 Spacemaker that started making a buzzing noise periodically when turned on. After a few times of buzzing it quit heating.


You probably had a bad connection now with pop probably separated. You may also have a bad thermal over heat device. one brand is Thermodisk. But you need to know what you are doing. Might be time to replace.

GE Profile mod. PP975bM3BB all lights work Burner will not heat


You have lost half of the circuit in the breaker, the lights work on one side of it but the burners need both sides of a 220 volt circuit. I would have the breaker tested first, and if it is good, look for a fuse, relay, breaker in the back of the stove. Hope this helps.

Cooktop burner cuts off and on. does not maintain heat properly


bad thermal sensor in the element, do they all do it or just one?
if it is just one then replace the element if it is all the replace main board, this can be pricy in some models check the users manual for waranty info some brands/models cover such items for several years

GE Profile Gas cooktop stove- buzzer won't stop


Unfortunately you have to wait until it dries out. I have tried hairdryer before but most of the time I have had to leave it off overnight. FYI if you dont shut off at the circuit breaker and the sparking continues it will short out and definitely get worse
