Question about GE Spectra JBP78 Electric Kitchen Range

1 Answer

Burners, oven will not heat, all lights work

Have a GE JBP series range--the "burner on" indicator lights work, and the oven light comes on when you open the door, and the clock works, but neither the burners nor the oven heat up. Is there a "heating element" type device that might be replaceable, or is the stove junk now? Thank you!

Sounds like you are only getting 120 volts. All heating elements require 240 volts to operate. Start by taking the covers off the back of the range and looking for loose or burnt off wires. Look first at were the range cord connects onto the range. If all OK with range wires, check wires inside range receptacle (where the range cord plugs in) and also the connections on the household circuit breaker or fuses. If you use a meter to test for 240, you may see it, but if a connection is poor, it may not be good enough to supply the required power.

WE have a GE Stove top Range. The burners aren't


If you have power to the stove as in the oven light works and the clock works but the burners and oven will not work you only have 120 volts coming to the stove. The stove requires 240 volts for the burners and oven to work. Check the service panel for a blown fuse. There will be 2 fuses in the fuse holder. One of them is blown. If that is not the case then one of the wires has come loose either in the service panel or in the outlet behind the stove. Use a multimeter to check the input voltage at the outlet.

GE Model #J TP30B0M1BB Oven The oven stopped heating up on either bake or broil. Light and display are still working


Check to see if 2 of your range burners have failed too.  It would indicate that your breaker needs to be turned off and then back on to get 240 V again.  The panel and 2 burners will work on 120 V just fine.

Heating elements


I have a Whirlpool super capacity 465, the surface light for the burners comes on, the burners don't heat up, nor does the oven,(the light that says oven is on does not light up). I checked the main circuit breaker, that works. Are there any fuses in the range that would need to be replaced?

Thank-You,maddie

Oven and lights stopped working


is it the indicator lights at the top or just everything in the oven that is not working??

If it is just the light in the oven and the oven not heating then you are having a problem with your control board.

Top burners often wont light if oven is already lit


I have fix that problem before, the oven heat is soficating the top burners, you will have to adjust top burners with the oven on, so that they will light by them selfs.Or put a shield under the cook top section on the back, so that the heat will not come to the burners where they get the oxigen.
