Some common problems with General Electric electric stoves include no heat or partial heat from some burners, as well as excessive heat from the stovetop. The stove must be turned off before repairs are attempted.
A complete lack of heat may indicate that a circuit breaker has tripped. Single burners that fail to heat may be loose in their sockets, or they may need to be replaced. One easy way to check a faulty burner is to plug it into another space on the stove. If the burner still fails to heat, the element needs to be replaced. When the stovetop seems too hot, the oven vent may be covered or misplaced, causing heat to build under the top.
