Is it normal for the burners to oscillate on and off? We purchased a house that has the JES9750AAS glass top stove and my wife keeps telling me I need to get the unit fixed because the burners get bright orange and then seemingly turn off. It will oscillate back and forth every 15 to 20 seconds. My wife claims it takes forever to cook anything....help

This is a inner/outer burner type assembly? Sounds like a glass top. Either way, your switch for that burner or the burner needs to be replaced. If you are able and it is possible, inter change switches to see if it makes a difference. Interchange Large with large, small with small. If yous switches are connected as one unit, you will not be able to do this. Sorry, I have not looked up your wiring diagram.
THe glass top is just that, glass! If the elements beneath it are not producing enough heat your utensils will not cook. Pull off the glass top by removing fasteners (either in the front of the stove or under the back panel of the stove). Then, turn on each electric burner to see if it turns RED hot. If not, wait till everything COOLS and reseat each heating elememt and retest those that failed. If that doesn't solve the problem, you can buy heating elements at Home Depot or other stores...
If it was a large bang and flash of light as you described this would have been a short circuit, and this is why the circuit breaker tripped. A fuse wouldn't make as much noise and if the fuse blew the breaker wouldn't normally trip. Looking at the picture of the range it looks like the heating elements are under the glass top. This will have to be dismantled and if the short circuit isn't obvious, the elements will have to be tested to find the faulty one.
had same problem with mine it was a bad burner a new one was 122.51 with tax. i tried the swich first and wasnt the problem. if you pull the burner out take a picture of the wires so you know where they go (theres 5) when you drop the burner you can see where the element is burnt. if the switch is the problem contact me aman2222000 @yahoo.com two 1/4 inch screws hold the top down if you open the oven you will see them and a phillips head screw driver takes the burner out. michael
The most common reason a gas oven won't heat is a bad igniter. It is located near the valve and burner under the oven bottom. You can usually see it glow orange just before the fire lights. Most GE ranges take a cylindrical igniter part #WB2X9154 or #WB13K21 rectangular igniter.
