Do you hear the spark ignitor trying got light the burner?

If not, then make sure there is not a residue or film of cleaning solution on the burner bases or burners themselves. It could be coincidental that the spark ignitor failed when she just happened to be cleaning the unit.

Perhaps you have a similar problem that I did. I have a Whirlpool gas range and some of the lighters were cracked and not working. They are $26 - $35 each, OUCH. On the two broken ones I replaced the ceramic with epoxy putty, and they are working. As it turn out, they are only female wire connectors wrapped with ceramic. In a hobby store I got some oven bake clay, an I plan to make my own replacements.

SOURCE: GE Profile JB 968 Hot Cooktop Indicator Light Always On

Temporary solution to turn off the indicator lamp - put a wet rag with an ice pack on top on the middle section of the cooktop.
The thermal sensor will trip off the lamp.

Replace fan switch on ge cooktop profile


I agree completely with imaginus2000. GE Profile is junk. Came with the house we bought so had no choice there. As soon as it craps out it will be sent where it belongs. The scrap yard!

GE Profile cooktop JP360. Trying to remove cooktop to install new granite countertops. Also have GE built in oven JTP 15 below. Called G.E. Customer Service today and was told to just pry the top off...


Hi marilynmcdon,

You can do it yourself. These cook tops are not glued to the granite at all (Or is not supposed to be). Simply lift is up slowly, start from the side, and lift it slowly. If done carefully you won't damage anything.

Hope this helps

Down draft kitchen cooktop: i can't use a recommended 6" exhaust because of structural conflicts, but could use a 3". Will this mess anything up with the blower on the cook top?


This would be a bad idea. The problem would be that not all of the exhaust gases will leave the kitchen. (Thus it could make you ill or be fatal - it will not do be a problem for the blower.) For a very short run you can use 5" duct but not after any sections of 6" or 3 1/4" x 10" rectangular ducting. The maximum duct length can be 100'; however 5" round duct has a higher equivalence length than 6" round duct.

You would be better off putting the cooktop on an exterior wall and directly venting it to the outside with rectangular ducting.

The installation and owner's manual are available from GE. Go to http://www.geappliances.com/service_and_support/literature/. Then search for JP389.

I wish that I had better news.

How do I replace the switch for a jennair electric cooktop? model jed8430adb. Thanks!


You first need to remove the unit from its installation. Start by disconnecting the exhaust fan from the ductwork. Then push the cooktop up.

To get at the switch you need to remove the top by taking off only the top row of screws all around the unit and also at the top of the down draft cavity (the down draft cavity is where the grease guard mesh is)

How do you get the black top off. I have to put in a new front burner. Thanks.


I had the same problem. Mine was caused by liquid seeping into the infinite switch (the switch that gets rotated by the knob to set burner temperature). This caused one of the live wires to short to ground within the switch. Bad Design IMHO. Replacing the switch fixed the problem (you can get replacement parts at Searspartsdirect.com - search using the cooktop model number).

Turn off the circuit breaker to the cooktop. Verify by making sure the burners/fan do not come on. Disconnect the exhaust fan (underneath the cooktop) from the ductwork by removing the tape that joins it. While you are underneath the cooktop, open the junction box. Label the four wires that are joined so that you will be able to connect them later. Then disconnect the four wires. Remove the metal sheating that connects to the junction box (there is a nut on the inside of the junction box that you loosen. Pull out all the supply wires (from the mains) from the junction box. Then push the cooktop up and out and lay it flat on a table with the flat side down.
Take off only the top row of screws all around the unit. Rotate the unit so that you can get to the down draft cavity (the down draft cavity is where the grease guard mesh is). Remove the two center screws. Then pull the black top off.

Exhaust turns on automatically in burner mode


Hello
I have the one with the 4 burners and the grill, and when the grill in on the fan has to come on, and it does automaticly, but once you finish with the grill you have to change it back to stove mode by putting the 2 burners back or the fan will allways go on when you turn the switch. It is a safety regulation for the fan to be on with the grill to avoid the fumes......I know I hate that too.
Hope this help

Glass top


The cooktop will need to be removed from the counter. Turn it upside down and remove the screws. The biggest problem will be removing the cooktop from the counter. Sometimes it is not worth fixing as the part could cost around $400. NEVER use a cracked top as it could suddenly explode. This is tempered glass and very unstable if cracked or chipped.
