GE JP328SFSS COOKTOP - WON'T TURN OFF

Cooked dinner tonight. Turned off burners, but light stays on and all 4 burners are hot.

    My burner wouldn't turn off then shorted out and sparked. After turning off the breaker, I looked under the switching box and found the burner switch had shorted out. It looks like the "control knob" stem is rusted, and so is the metal inside it.

When I turn on the coil burner it goes to full hot. Is the problem a rheostat in the the switch or the burner coil?


The switch contacts are burnt and sticking. Very common problem. The model and
serial should be behind the bottom drawer on the (right side for GE). This switch runs
around 45 dollars. I do not recommend using a "universal" as they are just a pain to install and cut the shafts.

My GE glass cooktop has a red light that goes on when in use (not theburner indicator light but a general light as soon as you turn one of the knobs. For some reason, today it is dimly on--even though...


I assume you are talking about general pilot light which illuminates when you turn any of the four hotplates on. This light gets its power supply from the hotplate contollers. The controllers generally have a pilot light circuit which links all 4 controllers to the pilot light. I haven't seen this problem before. Either a small amount of power is escaping across the pilot light contacts inside the controller or the pilot light is getting a feedback from another source/fault in the cooktop. The only solution is to dismantle the cooktop and use a voltmeter or similar to trace the fault. Unless you understand how the problem occurs it's probably best to call a repairman.

My GE Gas cooktop model # JGP975EKSS is trying to ignite without any burners being turned on.


If all the burners are trying to ignite at the same time - the ignitor module is to blame.
If it is one specific burner - take a look at that individual knob.

Knob is turned off but burner light is still on and burner area warm


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.

Right front (large) burner indicates hot, won't work, flashes F153


I hade a code 153 also. Changed the element(costly-$200) and had to recalibrate the pan sensors(in the manual). All works fine now.

It is not a GE but it is a Jenn-air


It's either a bad spark module or switch.
