Normally if trip switch activates, it means there is a problem on the ignitor board. Easiest way is to replace it. Trying to repair it is like playing dice. A good repairer is pricey and a poor repairer is costly.(At least with a new board, there is a gaurentee.) Unfortunately it should be replaced by a responsible technician as the gaurentee is not valid if done by a non technician.

I have a GE 36" Profile Gas Cooktop JGP963 and when i light one of the burners, it trips the GFCI , main breaker and a little fire ball comes from under the knob. what could cause this?


IT SOUNDS LIKE YOU HAVE A SHORT IN THE IGNITER. YOUR COOKTOP SHOULD BE ON A DEDICATED CIRCUIT AND NOT A GFCI. YOU MIGHT HAVE TWO CIRCUITS TIED INTO THE SAME RUN. POPPING THE GFCI AND THE MAIN BREAKER IS SUSPECT. THE GFCI SHOULD SHUT DOWN THE CIRCUIT WITHOUT POPPING THE MAIN. THIS IS PROBLEM THAT SHOULD BE LOOKED AT BY AND ELECTRITION.

Electrolux induction cooktop shuts off and won't turn back on


There is an internal thermal circuit breaker. The breaker has gone bad. On-line of Electrolux find a service manual of your model to locate the breakers location. Contact a local appliance parts store for a replacement also ask for heat sink gel(very small amount). Trip the circuit breaker, remove bad one, clean the space, apply gel and replace it.

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!

Stove not on - but fan comes on automatically -


it sounds as if the thermostat is broke. it could be the two wires off the thermostat are after melting together. ( burning smell). the thermostat stops power going to fan when it sences below a certain degrees. but your one has been cut out of the circuit due to the two cables melting together. this means fan will constantly stay on. you need to find and replace thermostat and make sure no cables melted together. if they are then seperate and use insulating tape to re insulate.make sure circuit breaker is off while doind this

GAs burner igniter


This is definitely an electrical problem. Check the circuit breaker on the wall plate (where the cooktop is plugged in) as well as at the fuse box. If that is not the problem, you may need an electrician.

GE JCP 930 Cooktop Wiring


These fuses are under counter? It should be wired to breaker box. Check specs in manual but i suspect a 30 or 40 amp breaker.
