Question about GE 36 in. Monogram ZGU36N4RHSS / ZGU36L4RHSS Gas Cooktop

Open Question

Grill on my GE ZGU36L4RHSS cooktop will not light. Glow plug will not glow.

The grill gloplug will not glow. Do they typically go bad? Is it easy to replace? Where can I get one?
Also, the on/off indicator light for the grill control knob if very dim. When the cooktop was working well, the glowplug would glow for approximately 15-30 seconds then the burner would ignite. Thanks.

SOURCE: GE Cooktop burner doesn't click or light.

Remove all the burner heads and lift the top. Sometimes easier said than done. How do you know it is the module? It could be a cracked insulator on the ignitor. To verify you can swap two of the connections on the module and if it lights then it is the module.

Hi,
You have a bad ignitor to your oven. Part number you should replace is 12400035. This should fix this problem. Just because it glows does not mean it work correctly, it works off of the flow of electricity rather then the glow of the ignitor.

Should I buy a two burner unit if available? Or a new cooktop?


Yes you can as long as there ae two heat controls for the grill side of the stove/cooktop. That allows one burner control for each of the burners. You should be able to order directly from GE but I would also check out repairclinic.com since they normally sell OEM GE parts cheaper than you can buy them from GE. At least check out the price at both sources beforw purchasing.

Maytag clothes dryer flame won't stay lit


Usually this is the two gas valve solenoids, though it can also be a bad flame sensor or thermo. The solenoids are easy to change, they are right in front and usually have two screws holding them down. Order new solenoids by model number. Once you have the new ones you will see how they look and where they go on your gas burner. Just make sure you make not of the wire positioning and install the new ones the same way. Usually 3 wires on one side and two wires on the other. Parts are pretty cheap. Before I replace these I put an electrical testor on the solenoids to test if there is 120 volts coming in when the burner stops working. If their is 120 volts and the ignitor is glowing then you definitely have bad solenoids. Good Luck, Appliance Specialists.

GE Monogram ZGU48N6D- None of the Ignitors "click"


We just had that problem - the igniter is electric - if none of the burners are "clicking" it could be a power problem. unplug the stove and check whether the outlet is working. In our case, the outlet the stove is plugged into has a "GFI outlet with a reset button. So we reset the outlet and that fixed the problem.
