Question about GE Cooktops

1 Answer

I have a ge jgp932 cooktop. I had one burner that would not ignite when its control knob was turned, but it would ignite when I simultaneously turned another burner control knob (all burners would then spark). Now (3 months later) that burner will not ignite at all & another is now only sparks intermittently. I was thinking its the spark module and maybe an igniter - so I was going to replace them. I've removed the unit from my counter top. I have no idea how o open up the unit. I do not want to removc the wrong screws! Could someone let me know how to properly open up the unit so I can replace the module and igniters. Many thanks!

There would be 2 nuts that you would need to remove. Spark module is screwed to the upper back of the oven on the right side. Use a nut driver to take out the screws from the upper back of the oven. Now you would see six wires - four to the burners and two to the power supply. Check for the four wires hooked to the igniters on the burner to the back of the burner. To remove the wires, just pull the connector off the spark module. Check out the schematic of the cook top---

Piezo igniter won't quit

Possible stuck burner switch or failed spark module. Unplug unit. Remove wires from burner switches at module and plug back in. If it starts sparking, replace module. If it stops, then replace switch harness.

The igniter on the right front burner of my GE Gas cooktop does not work....I must use a lighter or match to ignite....What can I do? There is no clicking sound when I turn on the burner?

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

I have a GE JGP932 gas cooktop. All 4 igniters are

All four a supposedto spark....most ranges are like that. Check for, in order and only as far as you're comfortable:

1. Partially closed gas valves
2. Kinked/twisted flex connector
3. Blockage in tubing (grease buildup is pretty common - blowing through it often works)

4. Clogged inlet screen on regulator. N.B. Only do this if you're confident you can reassemble it safely as it must be done safely and correctly. If not taken apart carefully, you may warp/bend a key component. If not reaasembled correctly you could have a gas leak.

Good Luck.

Ignition will not stop clicking...

Did you clean your stove recently? If the switches under the burner knobs get wet they will cause the burners to click. Unplug the unit or shut off the power for a day. Once the swithes dry, it should work normal.

Gas is flowing to all, but the front left burner will not ignite.

hello, it sounds like your Spark switch went out its located just under you knob to check it you'll have to open the top of your range and look at the one for your bad burner and see if thairs any burn or black marks on it that'll be a dead give away to it being bad or going out, what probably happened is that the water caused a ground and burnt it out. if that's the case and you need to order a new one here's a web sight were you can order the part from all you have to do is put in your ranges part # and click on the things on the left side of the page to find the exact part for your appliance.
