Question about GE JGP975SEKSS Stainless Steel Gas Cooktop

Open Question

The buzzer for the safety lock will ot turn off. It should only sound when gas is turned on when locked. Now it sounds wether any burner is on or off. i had to throw the breaker to shut it up. Does anyone know how this should be troubleshot? It appears this switch has to be accessed from underneith.

SOURCE: ignitors keep making ticking sound, all burners

Probably a spillage or boil over has clogged the burner and some of the liquid has dampened the shank switch mounted on the burner post. Get a shop vac and clean the burner. Wait a day or 2 and see if the switch stops. OR disable the ticky ticky by removing the bottom drawer and looking for the spark module. Remove one of the hot wires and tape it up. Light the burners like granny does with a match. LOL

all burner igniters work at the same time - you may have a faulty electronic spark unit. change the spark unit. go to repair clinic dot come for the unit. also would be wise to check the ingniter start switch on the gas burner control knob

SOURCE: The igniter on the right front burner of my GE Gas Cooktop

the very first thing i would do here is to check the ignitor itself
under the head cap you should see two screws, once those are out you will be able to lift the burner plate, lift the burner plate, you will see, or should see the ignitor, and the wire.
i check this for voltage by unplugging the ignitor and olding the wire close to a ground, the metal body is good. Turn on the ignitor, becareful it is live. yhou shgould see a spark comming from the wire
if not check to make sure that wire is in position and on the spark module
if you do see a spark this way, just order the replacement ignitor
and install it when it arrives

I've seen this problem before. It happens when spillage get's into the ignitor switches. The switches are mounted on top of the gas turn-on valves. You have to replace all the ignitor switches because they are connected into wire harness. Rich

Pilot lock light on stove is on so stove burners unable to work


This sounds like you may have to fix a problem in the pilot area before it will work. These gas operated devices have to meet a much higher safety standard than their electric counterparts. It is a built- in safety feature. Now, look for any obstruction or crimp in the gas line. My guess is you are not getting proper gas flow or pressure or the pilot could be physically blocked.

GE gas cooktop modelJGP970BEK2BB. The unit is in the unlocked position, burners will light, but "lock" light remains on and buzzer/alarm sounds the whole time?


Hi,
The lock switch will need to be replaced. Lock switch, the switch has failed and causes the buzzer to run. Not a difficult repair but the top will need to be remover to fix this. This is not advisable to repair if your not knowledgeable with the installation part of this unit.
Good Luck

5 burner tappan stove. oven takes a long time to reach 350 and doesnt stay hot also a hissing sound when you first put on, called the gas co. and it wasnt gas leaking. a loud popping sound also


By this description you gave it sounds as your oven burner has a flash back ,when it is like that does your flame look very yellow and gives off a Funny Smell ( which i Will think it is CARBON MONOXIDE . Remove the Oven burner make sure you watch for any wires attached to the burner (yes even in a Gas Stove) that would be part of your safety device . Make sure there is NO Rubbish in your Burner and your Burner
Well . Clean it out Make sure your Injector is Clear Carefully replace your Burner Making sure it fits over the Injector ,Replace any wirer if you removed any and relight

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.
