Question about GE Profile JGP636 Gas Cooktop

Open Question

GE Gas cooktop Model JGP940 - the control lock button light stays on when in the unlock position. The burners will light but the cooktop 'alarm' will sound. I tried unpluging the electricity in a hope that would reset the lock - it didn't work.

You have to determine if it is the electrode or the ignitor module and replace the component. A simple test is to swap the wires on the spark module for the non working one and see if the other electrode still works. If not the electrode is bad, if it does than the module is bad.

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 gas cooktop modelJGP970BEK2BB. The unit is in the unlocked position, burners will light, but "lock" light remains on and buzzer/alarm sounds the whole time?


Hi,
The lock switch will need to be replaced. Lock switch, the switch has failed and causes the buzzer to run. Not a difficult repair but the top will need to be remover to fix this. This is not advisable to repair if your not knowledgeable with the installation part of this unit.
Good Luck

Ignitors keep making ticking sound, all burners turned off, won't go in lock position, and one burner will not ignite gas despite constant ticking


Probably a spillage or boil over has clogged the burner and some of the liquid has dampened the shank switch mounted on the burner post. Get a shop vac and clean the burner. Wait a day or 2 and see if the switch stops. OR disable the ticky ticky by removing the bottom drawer and looking for the spark module. Remove one of the hot wires and tape it up. Light the burners like granny does with a match. LOL

Gas leak within cooktop


What do you mean it has a leak inside? You can remove the glass top by carefully lifting it up and out of the countertop and the removing either the phillips, 1/4" or Torx screws around the lip under the glass. Pull off the knobs and the glass will s-l-o-w-l-y come up with even steady lifting force. Where gloves in case it breaks but it shouldn't as long as you don't drop in on a corner
