You can disable the sensi-temp technology on your newer stove to provide more control over your cooking experience. It can also help to prevent food from burning or being undercooked. It can also save energy and money. However, it is important to note that disabling the sensi-temp feature on your stove may cause damage if you are not properly trained or equipped to do so safely and correctly. Therefore, if you are unsure of how to perform this task, it is recommended that you contact a professional technician or electrician for assistance.

GE and Hotpoint’s Sensi-Temp technology is a safety feature that was added to their ranges after a recent change in UL regulations. The feature works by monitoring the temperature of the cookware and adjusting the burner output accordingly. This will ensure that the cookware does not reach a level that can cause a fire and will turn off the burner when it is at a safe temperature. For many people, this is an annoying and unnecessary feature.

If you have a stove with sensi-temp technology, the first step is to locate the control box that is responsible for controlling this function. This is usually located either behind the oven door or on the right side of the stove. Once you have found this, you will need to remove the cap and expose two wires that are connected to a couple of prongs on the underside of the sensor. These are the wires that you will need to connect together to disable the sensi-temp technology on your stove.
