Question about GE 36 in. Profile JGP963 Stainless Steel Gas Cooktop
Some of the burners on my GE gas cooktop are not lighting. The igniters appear to firing okay, but the gas is not lighting quickly, or at all in some cases. I get paranoid of a house full of gas, and shut it off after a second or two. I have now resorted to using a lighter to use those burners, but that's just not right. One time while trying to troubleshoot this problem, I swapped an igniter from a functional burner to one which was having issues. It sparked, but did not light. Any ideas?
Aknot, make sure each burner cap has a good ground to the burner. You can use some light sandpaper to scrub them. Where the burner fits around the ignitor is a small orfice. Use a paper clip or small sharp object to clean out the orfice. Try this first. Catriver..post back.
