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.

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.

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.

Exhaust turns on automatically in burner mode


Hello
I have the one with the 4 burners and the grill, and when the grill in on the fan has to come on, and it does automaticly, but once you finish with the grill you have to change it back to stove mode by putting the 2 burners back or the fan will allways go on when you turn the switch. It is a safety regulation for the fan to be on with the grill to avoid the fumes......I know I hate that too.
Hope this help

Yes. Buy a burner module. Sears sells them also most appliance part stores. (I am assuming you have the model with 2 knobs on the grill side) The electric version of burner modules is around $100 Gas should be similar price.
