GE electric stove

The plug-in burner changes temp on its own. Does that mean the burner needs replaced? Or is there a problem with the knob or electrical problem?

Try putting the element in another spot. If it does the same, then it is the problem. If it works fine, then you need to change the infinite switch.

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.

Replace the infinite heat control switch for that burner. (the burner switch that you turn with the knob to select the temp setting) If you list a full model number (usually behind the lower drawer panel on the frame of the range) I can look up the part number for you. It is not a very difficult repair.

Pilot on GE stove keeps popping non-stop


As far a "popping" do you mean the igniter on the cook top "clicking"? Did you clean the range and use too much water? If water gets into the igniter switches they will short out and constantly click. Also if the polarity at the electrical plug you can get what is called "ghost spark" so make sure that the polarity is correct at the electrical outlet. Each gas control valve has a switch that turns on the igniter when the knob is in a certain position and they are all wired in a sequence. One of those switches may be shorted out or have a loose wire(range dis-assembly required to inspect). Do you visually see a spark at the electrodes of the burners or do the burners ignite? If you cannot see the spark then there may be a grounding issue and possible loose wire.

Burners wont ignite


is this an electric start stove (is there a "light" choice on the knob)? If so, does it click? If it does have "light" and doesn't click, make sure it is plugged it and getting electricity. If not, then it is a "standing pilot" stove and the pilots are out. Let me know and/or good luck!

check the power behind the stove, the outlet for 220 volts, i just fix one with the same problem, it was getting 110 volts but not the 220 volts. so there was nothing wrong with the stove but with the power source.when the stove indicator lights work and the clock, it means that only 110 volts are coming to the stove.

I think you mean you have a gas range with electric ignition. When you turn a burner to light, all burners should spark. The most common problem is boil overs have happened on those two burners. Take the burner head off for sealed burner ranges and clean them out. For non sealed burners, the little holes toward the center side of the burners need to be cleaned. You don't have a model listed, so I can't be real specific.

You got one or more of the burner switches wet. (It usually happens when you wash the knobs and water stays in the holes until you replace it on the shaft) If just water they may work after a day or two. try using a hair dryer, Keep it at least 12 inches away. If oven cleaner or other chemical got inside switches they may need to be replaced. If you can't dry them out. Disconnect the wires from all but one switch at a time and see which one/s need to be replaced. Sometimes the electric part of the switch can be seperated from the gas part and replaced seperately. DO NOT LEAVE THE STOVE PLUGGED IN until you fix this problem. There have been reports of fires started from this electrical problem. You could also burn out the spark ignightor. The fire problems have been mostly with Maytag/Jenn air products but my whirlpool blew a fuse and shot sparks when this happened to me. I just replacet the whole cooktop as my gas valves were one piece units and way to expensive to repair.

Burner will not turn off


I would first check the infinite control switch (#WB24T10029) the part the knob slips onto. The next thing I'd check is the erc (#WB27T10231) control board. Hope that is helpful!
