Question about GE Spectra JBP78 Electric Kitchen Range
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.
