Question about GE Cooktops

Hi, You asked a very generic question but I will try to give you a good answer. If the pilot is good and you can light the burner with a match, (this checks everything else) then the most common problem would be the burner holes in front of the pilot are clogged. When cool, remove the burner and inspect the holes, any debris needs to be removed, a bent paper clip works really well. Compressed air helps as well. If there is a tube to the pilot make sure it is exactly where it belongs and that it is clean. If the match didn't light the burner or the flames is not all blue like the rest, there is something else wrong and you need to get back to us with a make and model to better help you. Make sure the burner gets seated back on the orifice correctly and best of Luck to you!

Have SAME EXACT issue - F113 on Left burner. Indicator says HOT and not even on. Called a service company (NOT GE SERVICE). They said the Element Radiant is no good and must be replaced. Part is quoted as $323.98 !!! What a rip off from GE !
