Question about GE Spectra JBP78 Electric Kitchen Range

1 Answer

Flame from electrice heating unit with range turned off

After the electric range was turned off, there was a flame coming from the heating element. There is a single heating element across the bottom of the range that circles around the perimeter. A flame was coming from a section on the right of that element about midway down. There was no like foot burning, it looked more like a welders arc.

Your bake element blew out. Easy to replace... turn off the power (unplug) and replace the element by removing two screws holding it into the oven. Then you have two wires to the element and they either push on or have screw on terminals

My oven does not work, range is ok


The thermocouple or thermal capillary is not the only cause of failure; a burned-out or broken heating element is more likely the problem in an electric range. You can check the element by unplugging the range, disconnecting one of the wires to the element, then testing the element for continuity using an ohmmeter. Access to the burner connections varies by model. If you see a couple of screw heads inside the oven where the ends of the element meet the back wall of the oven, you may be able to get at the connections by removing those screws, then gently pulling on the element to bring the connecting wires inside the oven, then undoing one of the screws attaching the wires to the element (avoid excess force on the element; you don't want to crack the ceramic inside it). If you can't get at the connections this way, you'll have to remove the back of the oven. This may actually be easier than crawling around inside the oven anyway.

In a gas range with a gas pilot or an electronically fired gas pilot ignitor, a common problem is clogging in the flame orifice(s); this is visible as a white buildup in the orifice hole(s). Low gas pressure in the pilot can also cause ignition failure if it can't sustain the pilot flame long enough for the flame sensor to enable the main gas valve.

I'm sorry I can't give you more than a generic answer; the model number or part number you provided doesn't come up on any searches. Perhaps it is actually the stock number from one particular supplier, or there is a typo in it.

Will just replacing the oven element fix my Kenmore model 911.955879range oven? It sparked, broke in two and a white flame continued going around the element, wouldn't stop I had to shut breaker off.


Hello Jennifer;

My name is peter. I am a retired field service appliance technician.

Good for you - turning off the breaker.

You have a older oven. Usually there is a spark or crack in the oven element. In your case the element was so embrittled it broke into 2 pieces.

Before you use the top range burners to be on the safe side you need to disconnect the oven element. You may have damaged the oven control board to where it is locked into power for the oven.

25713262-01ium3bsyoj5ql4fhv4kpwvp-4-0.jpg 1.) Remove the bottom drawer to reduce weight.
2.) Put a rug on the floor in front of the oven, so when you pull the oven out it does not scratch the floor.
3.) Pull the oven out so you can get behind it.
4.) Unplug the unit.
5.) Remove the back bottom cover.
6.) Disconnect the heating element and remove from oven.
7.) Rap the two loose element connections in the back with electrical tape.
8.) Follow the element loose connection to the control board at the top. Disconnect at the oven control board.
9.) Inspect the loose wiring from the control board to the heating element for burns or melting.
10.) Plug the oven back in and turn on the range burners.

The part number for the oven element is WB44T10014. Sears wants about $95.00 for this part. Search the internet for this part number and get it for about $28.00.

Your oven control board may have become damaged. Recently I replace one for a friend. Sears wanted $256.00. I got a remanufactured board over the internet for $30.00.

Get back to me and let me know what is going on.

I have a gas stove/oven, when I turn on the oven the pilot light comes on but the burners don't ignite to heat up the oven. was told that is was not the element if I have a pilot light ????


Heater elements are found in electric ovens, you have a gas oven. It sounds like your main gas valve is not opening because the pilot would light it if it was open. It could be the gas valve itself of the flame sensor. Best to get a tech on it.

Stoves newhome gg700 grill flame goes out if lid is closed


I had a stove in my camper that did this. The answer was to let the flame burn for a few minutes BEFORE closing the door. I think the original problem is that there is too much gas flowing to the burner and it literally blows itself out, until you get everything heated up and working. The question, I think, is there a way to turn down the gas pressure??

Oven wont heat broiler wont heat


is this a gas or electric range. If it is gas it sounds like a flame sensor is not working. The oven will try to fire up, but if it does not sence a flame, it will shut off again to keep the range from filling with raw gas. Also the easy one, is the gas turned on?

The broiler or baker won't ignite when I turn on oven


if it is all electric then you probably have bad heating coil elements.
If it is a gas then you probably have a bad electric igniter, unless it is an older model with a pilot flame, then you have a bad thermocouple.

Mag...not sure here. Is there a particular reason that you're suspecting a problem? Does the unit heat much slower than before? Does it bake properly? You may be looking for problems that aren't.
