This stove should be recalled. Why it hasn't I don't know as there are complaints going back to 2008 on high oven temperatures melting the cooktop control knobs.
I wish I had seen them before I bought this piece of junk. Even at 350F the console heats up and makes it impossible to handle the cooktop knobs. Spoke with GE and they said that the oven pouring hot air onto the cooktop console is not a defect. The oven is working properly and the melted knobs are a cosmetic issue.
W.T.F. A tech for the appliance store came out and verified that it was overheating the cooktop knobs but the store is trying to pass the buck to GE and GE is claiming there is nothing wrong with the product. I'll be damned if I'm going to eat $2000.00 for a stove I can't use for fear of being burned just by handling the knobs.
Don't ever, ever, ever, buy a GE appliance. They are Mexican manufactured *** and the company is nothing but a rip-off artist.
