Question about GE Profile JGP636 Gas Cooktop

1 Answer

My GE Gas cooktop model # JGP975EKSS is trying to ignite without any burners being turned on.

    I got water in my igniter which caused all burners to try to ignite. Another website (GE) suggested using a hairdryer to dry out the switches. I took off all burner (mine is built in) and used the hairdryer. It made the clicking go from very fast, to very slow. Sometime during the night it did stop and all is well now. Did try to ignite for about 10 hours - kind of annoying. The GE website said that if it doesn't stop you'll need a new ignition module, if I recall correctly.

If all the burners are trying to ignite at the same time - the ignitor module is to blame.
If it is one specific burner - take a look at that individual knob.

    yep - water and electronics don't live well together. If the hairdryer doesn't do the trick - unfortunately, replacing the module is your only option.

    Thanks!

My GE Profile propane gas cook top was just installed yesterday. When I go to turn on one of the burners, all of the ignitors click. This can't possibly be normal. Anyone else have this issue?


Yes, thats okay when you turn the knob voltage gets sent to the spark module, Then the module sparks all the burner igniter. And frame ignition only happens on the single burner of the knob you turned that sends gas to the burner associated with that knob.

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
