Pop up fan knob is broken

I have the part for the replacement. But, I don't know if I should pull it out or should unscrew it. I don't want to get it worst by pulling it to hard and do more damage.

Knobs misaligned on new GE Cooktop


Most of these knobs just pull off.

If yours is like this, just pull off the knob, and reinstall by pushing back onto the shaft with it correctly aligned.

The circuit breaker for out kitchenaid glass


Water probably did get into the switch(es). The best bet for a fast fix is to pull the knobs off and use an air can (like for blowing dust out electronics) to blow down into the holes. This will dry out any water in there and should allow you to use it again. To be extra sure, blow out the switches and leave the knobs off over night. In the morning the knobs can be replaced and the cook top should be good to use. Hope this helps!

Burner only cooks on high heat.


You need the switch for that burner. The contacts inside are stuck together. You will need to pull the unit and separate the glass from the lower body to access it. To get the right switch you need full model and serial number located on a plate at the bottom of the unit.

Your ability to perform this is dependent on how mechanical you are. The Whole unit must be removed from the counter opening and the base unscrewed from the glass, remove knobs before disassembling. For someone mechanical this is not difficult. De-energize whole unit first.

Once the two pieces are separated the remainder is mechanically easier. Disassemble the box on right containing the switches and replace the correct one. Reverse the process for reassembly. Good Luck

Broken selector switch


TURN OFF CIRCUIT BREAKER. Lift out cooktop, remove all machine screws holding the glass frame. Remove plastic knobs and lift glass top straight up. Make sure rubber gromits are not ripped or torn. Unscrew the small screws on the selector switch and then lift up and tilt over the small aluminum chasis holding the switches to expose the wiring connections. Pull off the wires and pull out the defective switch. Replacre switch, connect wires, re-seat switch chasis, and secure switch with screws. Carefully drop in the glasstop lining up the switch shafts and the rubber grommets. Secure the top with machine screws and drop back in the cutout.

GE Profile JP350 cooktop stopped working


OK, i think the problem took care of itself. definitely got water down in the infinite switch for the lower right burner. let it dry 12 hours and reset the breaker, now works fine. but, i know if i do that again, or if it happens randomly, i will have to replace the switch and seals (available at repairclinic.com)
to do that, you have to remove the cooktop (screwed down by a strap in the back to the back wall of the cabinet) remove the sheetmetal to access the switches and replace. just keep the wiring straight, and ALWAYS replace the seals, they leak over time.

SWITCH KNOB


Pull off the knob and then see if you can push the shaft in. If you can, then the knob is hitting something, preventing you from being able to push the knob in. Adjust the knob until you can push it in. If you can't push the shaft in with the knob off, then the control valve is broken and you will have to replace it.

Fan Switch broke off Jenn-Air CVE3400 Radiant Cooktop


I am wondering if you just need to replace the knob then perhaps you don't need to take much apart.

Is this a knob that has an allen screw in the side that unscrews to let it come off or is it a friction fit.

If the knob is so small that you can't get it off some times wrapping a thin rag around it gives you the way to tug it off. If it is the whole switch you are fixing then I see why you need to take lots of things apart. If found the installation manual online and that might give you a clue to how it is installed in the counter to take it back out if you need to get to the insides. I am not sure what you need help with so please let me know more if this was not enough.
