Center burner doesn't ignite all the way around

We have a GE Profile gas stove with the center burner (which has the removeable plate for pancakes, etc. The center burner will not light all around, only half of it will ignite. We've cleaned it, tried everything. It worked when we bought it. We bought it only about 14 months ago.

I had this same problem. You will need to lift off the burner and remove the two 9/32" nuts and lock washers from the bottom of the center burner. Then separate the top section from the bottom. You will need to clean the inside of both sections down using a green scotchbrite pad removing and debris or small surface film the may have built up. Then rinse with warm water and dry them well. Reassemble it and your burner should work as good as new. Remember even just a small grease film on the burner holes will create this issue.

SOURCE: GE Profile glass top stove. Large burner, only

had same problem with mine it was a bad burner a new one was 122.51 with tax. i tried the swich first and wasnt the problem. if you pull the burner out take a picture of the wires so you know where they go (theres 5) when you drop the burner you can see where the element is burnt. if the switch is the problem contact me aman2222000 @yahoo.com two 1/4 inch screws hold the top down if you open the oven you will see them and a phillips head screw driver takes the burner out. michael

SOURCE: Replacement Parts For Vintage Magic Chef stove

You probably have a 1940's model of Magic Chef. Check for the model number under the lid of the cook top on the upper right hand side of the stove. It should have the model number and the serial number, too. You will need both. The Old Applicance Club run by Jack Santoro is the place to go along with a site called "Antique gas stoves"in Georgia. Good luck with the world of vintage stoves.

SOURCE: What is it??? How do u do it???

The button is a thermostat that measures the temperature of the pan, there's probably some cutesy name for the function, but it allows you to have more regulated heat on that burner.

Our GE profile oven model JGsp31wet1ww oven will not heat up. When i set the oven to say 400 degrees, it just stays at 100 and never heats up. The broiler seems to work fine and the stove top gas burners...

pull out the racks and remove the bottom floor of the oven,turn it on bake,if the ignitor doesn't glow most likely it's bad,if it does glow and it doesn't ignite within 40 to 60 seconds the ignitor is bad.even though it glows doesn't mean it's good,it works by amps.it takes 3.2 amps.for a flat ignitor to open the gas valve and 2.5 amps for a round ignitor to open the gas valve.

It's the Switch Harness. Do not remove the stove and disconnect it from the gas. Turn the gas off under the stove. Take off the: knobs and the plate; burners; hxw screws. Pull burners out and disconnect igniter burners. Lift the top of the oven off. The Switch Harness is on the right, under where the knobs are located. Replace the Switch Harnes.

GE profile gas stove igniter don't stop igniting

take a look at the igniter located in the center of two burners. clean the gap with a stiff brush between the eletrode and the upper plate. the distance is preset at the factory. you may have enough buildup to close the gap enough to trigger the igniter.

Ge spectra gas stove top not lighting

If your top burners are not lighting or will not work, it is possible that the burners have become dirty or wet. Please follow the troubleshooting directions below before calling service:
  1. Turn you burner to the Lite position:

    If you hear clicking or sparking, go to Step 2.

    If you do not, check your circuit breakers. If the circuit breaker is ok, we recommend that you schedule service by calling 1-800-432-2737 or schedule service online.

  2. Clean the burner and electrode:

    First remove the burner grate, cap, and head. Use a needle or paper clip to poke through the holes on the burner head. Re-assemble and try the burner.

    Remove the burner grate, cap, and head. Even if it looks clean, wipe the tip of the electrode with a clean, dry paper towel and PRESS IT DOWN. Re-assemble and try the burner, again.

    Check to see if the burner works, If not, then go to Step 3.

  3. Re-assemble - Make sure that each burner top matches its burner bottom. The burner top will lay flat if put on correctly.

    Check to see if the burner works, If not, then go to Step 4.

  4. The spark igniter is operating properly, but the burner is still not lighting. At this point, we would recommend that you schedule service by calling 1-800-432-2737 or schedule service online.

GE Spectra Range/Oven XL44

Resettle the small center tops on the burners. If even one is slightly off center or not level, a burner will not light, although it will click. Cost me a service call to learn this!
