Question about GE JSP46 Electric Kitchen Range
Four wire line comes into junction box on wall behind stove area (I'm replacing old cooktop-only with full range). Obvious hackjob turns four-wire into three-wire cable: white/neutral joined to bare copper ground to create bare copper ground only (wire spliced onto source wire takes 8 gauge to 12). These three ran to the cooktop, which worked fine, although I haven't used it in years. Proper 3 wire hookup to new stove activates electronics (digital controls, lights), but not heating elements. 120 going thru, 240 not? Go back to four wire? Three-wire connections perfect according to manual.

ALL YOUR FLAMES SHOULD BE CLEAN BLUE FLAMES WITH NO WHITE OR YELLOW TIPS OR FLAMES !!!! YELLOW FLAME = DIRT OR PAINT? WHITE = LACK OF AIR SOUNDS LIKE YOUR STOVE IS NOT GETTING ENOUGH COMBUSTION AIR. INPROPER AIR ADJUSTMENTS OR LACK OF AIR WILL CAUSE A WHITE TIP ON THE FLAME ... THAT IS CARBON-MONIXIDE !!! A CLEAN BLUE FLAME EMITTS CARBON-DIOXIDE AND IS NORMAL. IF YOU USED AN AIR-GUN TO PAINT, CHANCES ARE YOUR BURNERS HAVE A SLIGHT COATING ON THEM AND HOPEFULLY WILL BURN OFF IN TIME. TRY OPENING ALL YOUR DOORS AND WINDOWS IN YOUR HOUSE ... AND TURN ALL BURNERS ON AND LET THEM BURN FOR AN HOUR. DO NOT LKEAVE SIGHT OF THE STOVE, BUT KEEP NEAR A OPEN WINDOW. NOTICE !!! MOST GAS COMPANIES WILL COME OUT AT NO CHARGE TO CHECK GAS, AND FOR CARBON-MONOXIDE.(C0) NOT (CO2).

I'm not sure what your question is. Are you trying to find out why only one burner works? The top burners are simple and if you can work on it I can tell you how and what makes it works. The burners are as most ele. things. You have a line in, a switch, a load and a ground. The switch has 220v coming in. When you push a button it allows ele from the line to go to the element which is the load. Which button you push dictates the amount of ele that is allowed to go to the load. It should have a OFF, LOW, MEDIUM and a HIGH. If you check the wires between the switch and the element after you push the HIGH, you should show 220v. If not, you have a bad switch. I hope this helps like I stated, I'm not sure what your question is.
