I just bought a 16 pack of the WB02T10461 GE replacement feet on ebay for $13 (free shipping). We'll see if they fit, but the pic indicates they should be an good match.

Most likely some water got under the top near the knob shafts while cleaning or something boiled over. Despite the cause, the switch or switches are shorting out and we're talking 120 volts so it could be dangerous. Unplug the power cord under the counter and let it all dry for a day or 2, you could speed that up with a hairdryer but the burners will still light with a match so why rush it?  Good luck and don't use so much water when cleaning.

Almost certainly the switch, not the element, Had the same problem on a different stove - went to 10 no matter what the knob was set to.
Here is a parts list, you should be able to get the part from a local appliance part seller. I used ReliableParts in my town.

You need one with a smooth stainless steel or aluminium bottom. Don't use cast iron because it is rough. Or you could sit any on a round profile metal triangle. Here is a star shaped one

Need model number of your range to answer this question. Is this gas or electric? Is this a freestanding range or cooktop because I only can find information on ranges with this fault code given. All should EEPROM communication error which is a communication error on start up. when the top was damaged was the unit being used? Was water or liquid a factor when this damage happened? A loose wire would be a different error code or fault code like a F2 - E1 or E2, not your code given. I hope this helps, need more information. Thanks

I’m happy to help further over the phone at

Call the repair company to come back. It's possible he didn't hook something up right.
