Question about GE 30 in. JGP336 Gas Cooktop

1 Answer

Burner cap I have a 13yr. old GE cooktop and can't find the manual. The burner cap has separated around the rim . Our cooktop seems to be sealed to the counter. Can we pry it up without damaging anything to look for the model number ? I am not sure it is called the burner cap but it is metal and round and sits on the burner. Thank you, Diane

    One of the units (left bottom) in JGP336 GE gas cook top is not sparking. Ours is 11 years old. I don't hear the click click as I hear for the others. Gas is coming when I turn the burner switch on. There are two screws visible on top on the burner. Can I unscrew and look at the sparking unit without damaging the entire cook top? My worry is the whole unit may fall on the burner floor causing the entire unit malfunction. Thanks in advance for the help.

The cook top should be bolted to the counter. Look under and look for brackets that attach the bottom of the cooktop to the sides of the counter. and also the model number should be somewere underneath. If you can get me the Model number I can get you the maintenance manual in PDF format.

Glass top is scratched and discolored...can you replace just the glass top? Susan


GLASS MAINTOP ASSY

Replaced main glass cooking surface on cooktop

First, shut of the breaker to the cooktop.
Then removed two screws to release brackets holding cooktop down. Then lifted the cooktop out of the recess in the counter top and removed the screws around the outside of the glass top. Removed the old, cracked top, by unplugging from the motherboard.
Turned the new cooktop upside down on table and placed weather stripping around the entire underside outside edge (to keep spills from going under the cooktop and cushion the cooktop from the counter top.
Then plugged the new cooktop into the motherboard, replaced screws around outside edge, lowered the cooktop into the recess in the counter, and reinserted the two screws into the hold-down brackets.
Turned the breaker back on.
Note: Just need Screw drivers and 40 minutes of your time.

Burner only cooks on high heat.


You need the switch for that burner. The contacts inside are stuck together. You will need to pull the unit and separate the glass from the lower body to access it. To get the right switch you need full model and serial number located on a plate at the bottom of the unit.

Your ability to perform this is dependent on how mechanical you are. The Whole unit must be removed from the counter opening and the base unscrewed from the glass, remove knobs before disassembling. For someone mechanical this is not difficult. De-energize whole unit first.

Once the two pieces are separated the remainder is mechanically easier. Disassemble the box on right containing the switches and replace the correct one. Reverse the process for reassembly. Good Luck

Ignition of burners is difficult and uncertain.


remove the burner caps, or heads and check all of the ports to be sure they are not clogged. Also be sure that when you put them back that they go into the correct positions.

Viking Gas Burner issue?


is this a sealed burner unit? if so the burner base (the heavy brass part under the burner cap) has to be sitting just right. you will notice that it has holes around the the sides make sure that where your ignitor sparks to it that it aligns with the lowest hole on the burner base. if you have a great flame all around the burner after checking what i mentioned i would replace the spark module. if it continues to drive you crazy with the noise - just unplug it. the burners will continue working fine without power.

I would have someone come out. Perhaps a gas plumber first. Gas is not something you want to fool around with yourself.

GE Cooktop JP930 surface element not working


It sounds like the burner needs to be replaced. When they burn out sometimes they short out to ground. The cooktop will have to be removed from the counter and the glass top opened. You will probably be able to see where the element is burned out. Replace it and you should be fine. If it is too expensive to fix just disconnect the wires to the burner where they attach to the control . Then you can use the remaining burners. I really don't know what a replacement burner costs. An open coil is around $30.

Re-ignition when cabinet below doors open/close


Seal all holes on the underside of cooktop. This is called the burner box. Seal all openings with aluminum tape. This should stop the back draft effect.
