GE electric cooktop

Unit is not receiving electricity - nothing comes on. Checked breaker box and everything looks okay. This is on the same breaker that the oven is on and it is working. Want to see if I can repair it myself instead of having someone out.

Try looking at the junction box that it is connected to. Maybe one or more of the wires have burned off or come loose from the wire nuts. How many amps is the breaker? Most electric codes require separate circuits (Breakers) for each appliance. First turn off the breaker. There should be an outlet box of some kind on the wall or behind the cabinet. Follow the wire from the cooktop and see where it goes. Open it up and check if any wires are burnt or loose. If it was installed wrong I would change it. Most cooktops shouldn't be fused at more than 30 amps. Single ovens the same, double ovens up to 45 amps. The problem is if they used an old range outlet with 6 gauge wire and tried to connect both appliances to the same wire. This is hard to do without it coming loose.

Breaker in panel tripped and won't turn back on


You may have a short circuit to ground fault in the electric cook top. Divide and conquer. Unplug the cook top and try to reset the breaker. If the breaker resets, then you have a problem with the electric cook top. If it doesn’t, then the problem is at the electrical panel side. Either problem will require a qualified technician’s assistance. I hope this helps. Good luck.

The cooktop does not come on


It sounds like the circuit breaker is kicked or the fuse is blown.

look in your electrical panel for the breaker and in the fuse box to see if the fuse is blown.

My ge ceramic cooktop hot indicator light won't go out


I know that some people have mentioned that it looks like it's on, even when it's off. Depending on how the light hits it, it can look like it's glowing a bit. This would be normal.

Loud Pop, blown Breaker


Pull the unit away from the wall and inspect from rear. However, if all is fine, perhaps you simply overloaded the circuit that once. Were you running any other appliances (overhead microwave) at the same time?

These fuses are under counter? It should be wired to breaker box. Check specs in manual but i suspect a 30 or 40 amp breaker.

Power button problem


Without being there to troubleshoot further, the first thing I'd recommend is checking the breaker. It'll most likely be in the breaker panel outside the house... in the BIG panel. This is a 240 Volt unit, so what you'll be looking for is a "dual" breaker. They'll be connected together.

I'll tell you what... here's the easy way to do it. Simply turn off, then turn on all the breakers in the big breaker box outside. Make sure you have all the computers turned off first, though. You might have to reset a few clocks, but that's OK. I'd bet this gets you cooking again. If not, post back.
