Question about GE 30 in. JGP326 Gas Cooktop
Hi and welcome to FixYa I am Kelly. The igniters are controlled by a switch mounted on the face of the burner control vbalve. The switch operates by rotating a ceramic cam against a movable copper strip of wire to contact a fixed contact. What happens is that sometimes the movable copper wire strip gets bent and stays in contact with the fixed contact. These switches are not repairable and must be replaced when they fail.
I used this model as a reference fopr your part as you provided an incomplete model number in your post. JGP326BEV1BB
The switch is common to all models and can be found as item 323 here:
Close up view:
There is one switch per burner control. Replacing this switch will correct the problem.
Thanks for choosing FixYa.
