GE cooktop fan turns on when left two burners are lit
« on: April 08, 2013, 09:40:59 PM »
GE model JGP389BEV2BB
When we light the two left burners the downdraft fan comes on automatically.   The two right burners work fine but the right rear is slow to ignite.  I have  good spark at the igniter on both sides.  I'm guessing I need to clean the  burners to help the ignition issue but I have no idea why the fan has a mind of  its own.

 Any help would be GREATLY appreciated

The left side was originally a grill, so the blower is working as designed.  Clean out the holes by the pilot tube, it should help it light easier.
