GE Spectra Dual Burner not working.

The outer ring of my dual burner does not come on any more. When we turned it on this morning, we heard a click and it would not come on. The middle part comes on and works fine, it's just the outer ring. Is this something I could fix myself or do I need to call someone? I have the same problem but it is the smaller element that does not come on. Where can I find a reasonably priced replacement part?

Since its just the outer ring thats not working and needs to be replaced you can order for the parts with the model/serial number of your burner and get it fixed but that will be best done by a technician ,

Either the knob has gone out or the burner element. I would test the knob first to see if there is current when turned to the large zone. If the knob is working, next would be to test the burner to see if the outer ring has burned out. I would guess more likely the control has gone out. Burners have less failure (typically).

Dual top burner will only heat up on high.It is only the large ring burner GE JBP79


Does it go straight to full heat even though it is on the low setting. If this is the case the hotplate controller is faulty and requires replacement.

Disconnect power to range. If you have an ohm meter, you can check the burner coils for continuity from the wires at the switch. If not, open oven door, remove screws holding top. Lift up top and remove screws holding the set of burners in question and visually inspect the inner coil for a break in the burner coil.

Small burner of dual surface(right front) stopped working.


Does yours have the (small large burner switch)? If so, try switching it back and forth. It could be defective or your small burner element is bad.

its been my experience that the dual burner switch is far more likely the culprit, unless you can physiclaly see the outer ring is broken( visual inspection works wonders. as far as trying to ohm out i generally look at theelemnet itself (4 wires lead to the elemnt you can trace 1 to the outer portion of element, and 1 to the inner portion.WITH POWER OFF Iswithc those 2 wires and the restore power try element ad watch for outer ring to work inner ring no good. now i know its the switch not sending power. reset wires and order new switch
