    I have cast iron grates on my GE gas stove. They are very hard to keep clean. Do you have an easy solution to remove burnt on grease?

Sounds crazy, but this works. Soak the grates in warm to hot water with 2 dryer sheets (Bounce), let them soak for an hour or two. Unbeliveable how they came clean. I did have to use a Scotch Brite pad on the two that I use most, but it sure beats replacing them.

The Grates are put in a Plastic bag, add ammonia, and seal it so no gas escapes. Keep overnit and take the grates out and clean with a scotch pad. They are easy to clean as they are softened.
Discard the ammonia safely.

Use regular oven cleaner. Not the overnight kind. If these are the light grey ones GOOD LUCK. I replaced my cooktop after onlly 6 months because I had a white cooktop with grey grates It was impossible to keep clean.

I agree with #3 but didn't need to use a scotch pad. Don't use oven cleaner! It isn't recommended by GE. Their book explicitly says to put the grates in a plastic garbage bag and pour a some ammonia into the bag. Tie the bag tightly so all the gas stays inside. Put in a garage in case it leaks because it can smell bad. Wait 24 hours and the stains will come off with a hose and some light rubbing. I didn't believe it at first but it works great! My wife loves our 'like new' oven.

My Jenn-Air range top will spark but no ignition. Gas does not seem to have enough pressure on that burner


Generally the issue with this is not that you don't have the correct pressure but the Burner top hat that displaces the gas is dirty.
Remove the metal rack to expose the burner itself. Make sure it's not been used recently to prevent a burn. Carefully lift the little burner cap off. This is the piece with all the holes in it the flames come from. They generally just sit on top. You will need a flashlight, know look in the little slits below the cap for cleaning material buildup. A tooth pick or a stiff bristle tooth brush can be used to clean these little slits.
The cleaning products used to clean stove tops tends to leave little trace amounts of surfactants that over time block these little slits and prevent the escaping gas to flow towards the ignitor preventing the burner from lighting.
Once you have this clean replace the top. Put the pan grate back on and try to relight the stove.
I am sure this should fix you issue. If it doesn't please let me know and I can give you some other tips to try.

I have a glass 4 gas burner stove top and cracked the glass, can I replace it? Its a GE Profile with a stainless steel front lip


Yes the glass is replaceable, you will have to order a new one, and you could do so through an appliance parts store. They can even put it in for you.

Can you put the top oven grates in the oven while it is self cleaning


Hi,

The top burner grates are designed to handle direct heat in excess of self clean temperatures.

You can put the grates in to the oven during self clean... but it will not clean them. The baked on residue needs some chemical reaction to break down the reside on them. I would suggest soaking them in an oven cleaner like easy off. Spray them down good then using rubber gloves put them into a plastic garbage bag, spray them again in the bag and close it up. Let them sit and soak for an hour or so then wash them off. This is best done outside so the odors will not be in the home in an enclosed area.

My ignition for the gas cooktop is clicking without being in the on positoin. will this be caused by cleaning with water? is it going to cause problems?


One of your burner ignition switches is fried. To see which one it is you remove a wire from each one till the ticking stops. Or plan be just unplug the stove and light it with a match.

I have a similar problem with my GE Profile stove


one of the ignitor switches is shorted out.sometimes it is moisture inside and it happens after boilover or spraying some liquid for cleaning.remove the knobs and try a hair dryer to dry them or leave the unit unplugged for some days.it should work fine after this ,if not then the bad switch needs to be replaced.always avoid boilovers and spraying any cleaning liquid for cleaning.

Stained gas range burner grates


Hey y'all. I have the same lame GE profile gas cooktop with the gray grates and burner covers. I know this is the expensive way to go, but I use Easy-Off "self-cleaning oven" oven cleaning spray. For about $5, you get 3 cleanings. It is a pain to do, but I have better things to do than scrub these grates all the time. I don't know why, but the baked on crud just drives me crazy. I tried everything to clean them completely. I even tried to scrub the darn things with a kitchen pumice stone(sold at walmart)but it is impossible to get the curvy areas clean. Now the paint has started to wear off on the burner covers.

I do not use the oven cleaner on the cooktop itself. I use soft-scrub with baking soda, then cover the cooktop with a sheet of heavy duty aluminum foil and cut out holes for the burners. This keeps most of the spills contained, and helps with cleanup.

I visited to the GE parts web page, and they only sell gray grates and covers. I am going to buy black BBQ grill paint(spray can)from Home Depot and try it on the burner covers first. They are the least expensive to replace if it fails, and if it works, I will paint the grates with this high temperature paint. I will keep you posted on the results.

Regards,

Laura D.
