Question about GE Cooktops

Knobs misaligned on new GE Cooktop

We just purchased a new GE gas cooktop and after installation we have noticed that a couple of the knobs are misaligned - meaning that on one side they are very close to the numbers and on the other side there is a 1/2 gap between the know and the numbers. In one case there is a flange showing that should be covered by the know, but due to the misalignment the flange is visible. Can I pull the cooktop out and align the knob mechanism that is under the cooktop so the knobs will line up properly?

Most of these knobs just pull off.

If yours is like this, just pull off the knob, and reinstall by pushing back onto the shaft with it correctly aligned.

SOURCE: Can't remove Dacor gas cooktop knobs-afraid too pull harder

The Dacor knobs have a history of breaking easily. For that reason I recommend that you clean them in place using cotton swabs, tooth brush, etc. WHatever cleaning agent you use, put it on and let it sit for 5 minutes to loosen up any grime.

They do pull off but they often break and they are pricey to replace.

Please rate my answer.

SOURCE: GE profile gas cooktop - sparker firing with knobs turned off?

replace your spark module
have you spilled liquid on the cooktop recently?
if yes let it dry for a couple of days and see what happens.
sometimes when you spill liquid on the cooktop it grounds out the spark module and it will continue to spark until it drys.
let me know if you need more help

We have a ge cooktop (gas). even though the knobs are turned off , we can hear "tick tick" noise from one of the burners.


Unplug your cooktop for 24hrs and retest. Sometimes moisture gets into the switches under the knobs and can cause a short. If this continues after you let the unit dry out then your will need the replace the switches/or switch harness.
Hope that was helpful please rate me a "4" if that helped.

suspect problem is with the regulator on the gas bottle as it would be unusual for all burners to be faulty at the same time. try substituting a new regulator
