GE Cafe Burner Problems

tannie88October 28, 2013

Hi everyone. I have the GE Cafe 30" slide in gas range with baking drawer. I have used it for about a year and a half with no problems and am generally really happy with the performance. Recently, my front right burner (the biggest one) started acting wacky. Basically it doesn't work on any setting below medium. I think it is the top part of the burner that doesn't work. Has anyone experienced this problem? Is it an easy fix? Thanks!

When's the last time you cleaned the burners?

I actually clean them all the time. Now that you mention it though, when I take off the burner piece, I can see some baking soda inside from when I was trying to get some stains off a while ago. I don't know how to get in there though? Could this be causing the problem?

Can you find some old-fashioned pipe cleaners? If not, try a bening a large paper clip and using the end to ream out the ports on the burner. Another thing that may work is canned air with one of the red straw-like nozzles. ("Dust--off" is the brand sold at out local Costco -- you find in the computer section.) A toothbrush might work, as well.

Very likely is th problem. ALso can be caused by water being trapped in the porst, too.
