If this is a glass top cooktop then yes the bunner light will still be on when you turn it off. Also the bunner area will be still be hot. The reason why the light is still on it is telling you that the bunner surfas is still over 95 degrees. Once the bunner area is under the 95 degrees the light will go off. It is a safty warning for people saying that the surface is still hot.


Good Luck and please rate 4 thumbs up for the free answer.

I have a GE JGP963 gas cooktop. When you turn the knob the igniters come on all the burners. The spark is good. This works on all knobs. But what happens is that it will not light. It appears there is no...


Hello, Is this a new unit? Is it still under warranty? Has it been recently worked on or converted to another type gas? I'd call the manufacturer (or the company that installed it) and have them send out a qualified technician to fix it. Are the burner flames a nice even blue color? Can you adjust the flames from high to simmer without them going out. If it was converted to another gas type, it's possible the wrong size orifices were put in or possibly that it needs to be converted because it is a natural gas unit that should be changed to propane, or vice-versa. Also be sure the appliance regulator was switched over to the correct type of gas. These are just a few ideas that come to mind. Let me know if any of these apply. Douglas

GE gas stovetop burner doesn't light


there are sparker modules on each burner behind the button, it may be that yours is failed, if you turn on other knob and you see spark at problem burner and still isn't lighting you have to make sure the black or grey tops are paced on perfectly, just give them a little nudge and you have to make sure area is perfectly clean for spark to take effect, spark will go for cleanest area on metal. so ensure area is clean and check burner top

Ignitor does not spark on first turn as stated in manual. I have to turn the knob past "lite" before flame comes on.


Is it just one burner knob that does that are all of them? If it is just one then the igniter switch built into the burner knob might be out of alignment or loose. This happens most of the time due to a cracked switch housing(made of plastic). This can also happen if the actual burner knob is cracked and/or loose. If all the burners do this then it is just the way the cooktop works. The best way to get the burners to light is by slowly turning them on until they light and not pay attention to the "light" mark. You might need to turn it just past the "light" mark for the burner to come on.

When turning on the burner, the gas does not always flow


There is usually a switch under the knob thaat controls the electrical sparker. OFTEN these get messed up when the area around the knob is cleaned and water gets behind the knob.

Burner light does not go off on Amana AKT3040


Sounds like a short in that particular burner circuit. Usually when the light stays on even after cool down the heat sensor is bad. This is inside the burner. If your getting white smoke the burner switch could also be shorted out.

Burner with intermittent feature won't light once hot; spart OK - - no gas.


mdpaul, sounds to me like 1 of the burner switches for the ignition is sticking. There is a small area where the switches turn to that shuts down the ignition. If the switch has failed from heat or is out of position, this can cause this issue. The switch is designed so when you turn the knob it closes the contact. The switch has to be locked into postion on this model. There is a push fit type retainer that locks this down. Pull the knobs off and turn with a pair of plyers to see if one is moving around. If so then with a deep socket, see if you can tighten the retainer by pushing down on it. Hope this helps.
