I have a 3 month old GE range GE JB860EJAES. The front left burner (small and large it is a dual burner ring) only goes to HIGH heat. It turns on the small or the large accordingly yet only goes to high. It seems almost that it goes above high as the heat is coming off the burner at an intense amount. I have read other blogs and it seems like it must be the switch, but I just want to make sure.

Thank you for any help you can provide,

Ken

Sounds like the front left burner switch. Call GE and set up a warranty service call. Everything is covered for the first year. If you attempt a repair you risk losing your warranty.

Ge Repairman just left said he usually sees the elements stop heating not stay on "nuclear". 15 minutes to replace a bad switch. He had the part on hand which was great. Thanks for the help
