GE Profile stoves are sold online and in many appliance, home retail or department stores in a range of prices and features. Some of the available options include downdraft or smooth top styles, electronic touch or rotary knob controls, various burner types, warming zone and various widths. A GE Profile stove can generally be expected to perform well with regular maintenance and care, but when or if owners experience issues, troubleshooting can be an effective way to solve the situation. More serious problems, however, may require professional repair.
Things You'll Need
- Induction cookware (if applicable)
- Flat bottom cookware
- Clean cloth(s)
- Ceramic cooktop cleaner
Match the approximate size of the cooktop burner to the cookware if food seems to cook slowly or does not hold a boil. Cookware with flat bottoms is recommended, as is induction cookware, if the GE Profile stove is an electronic induction heat model. Try a larger pan if the display flashes "F," which means the pan is too small for the heating element.
Adjust the cooktop control to a lower setting if food is cooking too fast or burning. Monitor items cooking on the stove for the best results.
Brush off debris from cookware bottoms with a cloth before placing cookware on the stove if the cooktop is getting scratched. Debris on the bottom of pans can dig into the stove top and create scratches during cooking.
Clean the stove after every use with a ceramic cooktop cleaner formula, available at many hardware or grocery stores, if the cooktop is getting marked, discolored or scratched. Note that some spills or marks, such as those created by hot, melted sugar, may require professional repair.
Clean the control pad with a damp cloth if the control buttons do not operate as expected or if the display flashes "E" and "c." If nothing on the stove functions, check the household circuit breaker or fuse and adjust as needed.
Turn off the stove controls and remove any empty pans if the error code "E" and "o" appears. Let the stove cool down for 30 minutes and remove any potential obstructions from the vent below the cooktop.
