Question about GE Cooktops
I have a GE monogram gas cooktop. Model ZG375NSD1SS. It has 5 burners. When I light any of the burners the flame flickers and the ignitor is constantly clicking.
The flames are blue but it seems like they are not getting enough gas to stay lit. There is no difference in the height or intensity of the flame no matter what setting the dials are on.
I've had the plumber check the gas supply line for any blockages and he found none.
Every other gas appliance in the house is working fine except the cooktop.
I've replaced the regulator with a GE regulator that is recommended for this cooktop. The regulator is installed properly.
I checked the manifold line to make certain there are no blockages using a small 1/4" sewer tape. Its clear.
I'm at a loss as to what to check next.
I bought the cooktop as a demo so there is no warranty.
Any insight into what the problem might be would be very much appreciated.
Bret, lets give this a try. 1st look at the regulator. There is an arrow on it that has to point towards the cooktop. Put is on backwards and very little gas flow. I always advise this first as I have seen people tell me it is correct and when I got out there it was reversed. 2nd was this used as a live demo unit on Propane? If you are on natural gas, this will also happen. The 3rd thing I also check for in something in the gas line on the cooktop side. I had a unit that got some packing in the line and at 5 wc for natural gas, it doesn't take much to restrict. Hope this helps.
