Question about GE Profile Spectra JGBP90 Gas Kitchen Range

1 Answer

Cleaning stove top

My (reasonably new) gas range is all black with sealed burners. I've been having a heck of a time trying to clean around the burners -- it's impossible to get off the burned-on spills which get set as soon as they occur, and it almost seems as if the finish is "bubbling". I can't think of a solvent I haven't tried, and I've been tempted to get out my scrubber, but am afraid it will scratch the surface and make it worse -- but at this point, I can't imagine how much worse it can get.

Any suggestions you might have would be greatly appreciated.

Own a KitchenAid gas range superba, how do i clean the burner, one of my front burners the gas flow is very low, the stove has the glass/ceramic top with no wells & no way to get to the burners...only...


You'll need certified stove technician to service you kitchen Aid range. You have low gas flow on one of the burner. The manual gas control valve behind the knob needs to removed and cleaned. If you have one cleaned then have technician clear all four of these manual gas valves. While he cleaning the valve have do a complete check up of you Kitchen Aid range. Dangerous for the home owners to do this procedure because flowing natural gas or propane. In a lot the states you'll need to be certified by the state to work with natural gas, gas stove, ovens, gas home heating units, etc. It differentially a no,no here.

It is not the burners, it is gas flow valves for the burners. Most of the burner are made of aluminum and I wouldn't use any harsh cleaners of them. Check with Kitchen Aid and ask them what is recommend for cleaning the burners. Also the top of the range isn't ceramic but porcelain, it glass that has been melt to the top hood of the range. Don't use scratch pads, steel wool or any thing that will mare the Periclean surface of your stove.

If you can get the aluminum burner out to clean them then do so. GB you Allison and I wish you many year cooking on your Kitchen Aid range. stewbison

How do I raise the cooktop on my Frigidaire Gallery Model #GLGF377ASE . I need to access the burner orifices.


If you raise up the top you will break the tubing going to the burners. You must remove the screws on each sealed burner before raising the top. Look closely and you will see the screws. They will be hard as heck to come out. If a stove is real old and I cannot get the screws out I dremmel the screw heads out and drill out the screws. I do a repair and then pop rivet the burners back on. If I have to go back in there it is nothing to drill out a pop rivet. That is how I do it on real old stoves. You may figure out a better way. You have to get those burners loose or you will break those lines below the top.

KitchenAid electric range KERS807SSS02 -in the middle of cleaning cycle, NO power outage but panel went black and door remains locked even after cooling. Circuit breaker not the problem. Top elements work.


We have a Kitcheaid gas stove and have had 3 new thermostats installed. After the 3 time it finally did it's first full cleaning cycle.

So three service calls later, (first was after the warranty) and three thermosats and over $500 and the stove has done it's first full cleaning.

Lots of examples of this same problem but it seems no recall on the stoves.

Rust in interior of gas stove top


I have the same problem. This is the second stove to do that in our apartment building. I remember calling the Gas company last time, but I can't remember what the older employee told us why it happened. The only thing I can remember is it had something to do with the gas line..

Smell of gas and question on cleaning


I recommend cleaning heavy cast burners with a wire brush. If for some reason, (moisture in gas), the burner holes are corroded and slightly clog, use a perfectly size drill, and clean the holes BY HAND. Do not use the power tool. Just twist the bit by hand.

Commercial equipment is designed to be under a hood. When installed in a residential application, I would very much expect for the unit to "smell". I would recommend taking the time or money to verify supply gas pressure, and install a regulator if needed. Most all supplies are higher than the equipment is spec'd for, so a regulator, that is properly adjusted, would help solve your issues. Also a reg would save you money on fuel through the years.

Stove top pilot light


I have a GE Gas Stove XL44 the stove top buners don't light by themselves without manual lighting. When I turn on the buner knob the buner doesn't click. Also I used my self- cleaning oven for the first time and stopped it before the time was up after that is when the stove top buners wouldn't light by theirselves.

Cleaning and care for my GE Profile stovetop


The one thing I don't suggest is using the Ceramabryte product the dealer left with us. It leaves a greasy film. When I get ready to clean my black GE Profile, I pull off the controls to wash separately. Then I lift off the grates, take a single-edge razor blade to scrape anything stuck on (it doesn't scratch), then I use baking soda and scrub and scrub with lots of paper towels. Then I start cleaning off the baking soda with lots and lots more paper towels. There is still a film, but at least it's not greasy. At this point I grab some more dry paper towels, pour on a 3' puddle of rubbing alcohol and wipe it all over the stove top and front. You may have to do this twice. Then, if I don't turn on the hood light's brightest setting, it really doesn't look too bad. I have to do this at least once a week, as I have never had a stove that got so dirty so fast and was such a pain to clean.

FYI, I would never buy another of these stoves. Besides the cleaning issue, there is the fact of having to replace the igniter (glow plug?) twice in the first four years. My old, bottom-of-the line Magic Chef went 25 years with the first replacement not coming until it was about 15 years old. Also, the broiler is unimpressive and steaks, etc., just sort of steam. Can't get a really good crust going. It's a slide-in and the top is very narrow, front to back, because of the slanted control panel on the front, and so you really can't put two large pots or pans on one side. Let's see....oh yes, I ordered the unglazed grates for safety reasons and it came with the procelain glaze. Those were replaced free of charge, though I had to go pick them up. Then the first set of unglazed grates began to rust about six months into use, so had to be replaced (again, no charge at least). Recently I noticed that the inside walls of the oven, where the racks slide, are starting to rust. Finally, the burners are difficult to calibrate, which I really notice when I try to cook rice, which comes out right about 50% of the time.

Now, on top of all this, I have to worry about the glass door exploding?!?! Should I ban my grandchildren from the kitchen? Has anyone from Consumer Reports seen this website?
