Question and Answers


I have a GE Profile gas cook top that has stopped igniting. .


I see that Marc posted a link for an article regarding the testing of igniters on a GE cooktop. You may have had a bad igniter electrode on that front left burner. The first image below shows technical information for the exact model of GE cooktop that you have. The second image shows a wiring diagram for that cooktop. You can unplug the cooktop to disconnect electrical power and check the electrode on the front left burner for damage. Switch it out with another igniter electrode from one of the other burners. If the left front burner sparks properly with a different electrode then you will need to replace the defective electrode. If you switch that electrode on the front left burner and it still does not spark then you could have a bad spark module or a wiring failure in that circuit. You can use the wiring diagram below to check the wiring in that circuit. If the wiring is okay, then you will probably need to replace that spark module.

If the igniters are still ticking by themselves, then you could have a bad burner switch on one of the burner valves. All of the igniters will spark when one of the switches on a burner valve is engaged. If one of those burner switches is defective then it will need to be replaced. You can unplug the cooktop and access the burner switches. Unplug the cooktop and access the burner valves. Pull the wires off of one burner switch at a time and tape the ends of the wires with electrical tape to prevent them from shorting to the metal cabinet (or shorting to each other). Power up the cooktop briefly and check to see if the igniters still fire with the wires disconnected from the burner switch. Use a process of elimination to find the bad burner switch. Repeat the above test until you find the bad burner switch. Replace the bad burner switch to fix that problem.

You can view and order parts from this page: GE Profile Cooktop Model JGP336WEV3WW Parts . Be sure that you unplug the cooktop or shut off the house circuit breaker to disconnect electrical power before accessing internal components.

I hope that this information helps. If you need more assistance, reply with additional details.
