Question about GE JSP46 Electric Kitchen Range

Open Question

JSP46 Electric Kitchen Range controls work but heating elements don't

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.
Please rate this solution

We have a GE electric stove with a JDP 39 oven element which has burned out. How do we get the bottom heating element out to replace it?


UNPLUG the stove or turn off its breaker.

Inside the oven, trace the element back to the rear wall. There should be one screw on each side next to where the element goes through the rear wall. Unscrew that screw on each side and pull the element toward you - it'll come easily, bring its wiring behind it (this is why there must be NO power to the stove!). Detach the wiring from the element... DO NOT allow the wires to pull back through the wall, or you'll have to pull the whole range out to retrieve them.

To install the new element, just reverse that procedure.

How do I change an element from my stove which is a deluxe 234 model..very old stove but goe's well


Unplug the range from the wall first. Just raise the cook top and the elements are attached to the bottom of it, probably by four screws. Note how the wires are plugged in then unplug them, unscrew the element that don't work, screw the new one in plug the wires back and put the cook top back down. The wires should have blade connectors to easily unplug and replug.

Wiring that leads to bake element on Electric Range is not long enough to fit through the slot in the back of the oven.


thats why electricians carry long wires and junction boxes of all sorts in their trucks

a solution's is to use a junction connection box and add a new length of wire to the oven side

I have a kenmore 953 freestanding stove, my wife was making pizza and the oven made a strange sound, the display is no longer working, the oven stopped heating, and she attempted to turn on the burners,...


If you will type "SearsPartsDirect" into your search engine, you can then enter your model number and you will see all the parts of your stove.
What should have happened was, either an element failed, or the element wire connection inside the wall of the oven failed, or a wire has "toasted" in the electric box inside the back of the stove.
You will need to take the oven out (away from it wall, perhaps) & give it a good inspection with an electric meter to find out where the problem lies.
God bless your efforts.

Dear Gina,
It should be one of 3 things.
1) The element has burned out, or
2) The socket the element plugs into has failed, or
3) the wires hooked to the socket have toasted.
Someone must take the stove apart to see.
God bless your efforts.

All four top elements of my Kenmore electric stove are not heating, but the clock and lamp are working. Would you suggest what to do? Thank you very much, Arnold


First thing to do is ascertain you have 240 Volts going into the stove. Only the elements need 240 V; the rest works on 120 V. If you do have 240 V going in, you would need to find a burnt wire connection.

Amana range -the oven does not work, but rest of stove is working.


If the oven isn't working it is either the oven thermostat or the element. If the light and fan comes on to show it's heating but no heat appears, check the fan oven element on the back wall behind the panel. Usually 4 screws.

Moved th stove out from the wall to clean behind and now the stove lights come on but not he burners or the oven. Is there something to reset?


It is likely the connections in the plug where it plugs into are bad. A person competent in electrical work should pull the receptacle from the wall box and check the connections. Of course the circuit brealer should be turned off AND that the power is dead at the plug VERIFIED before any work is done. If wires have been birned, the receptacle should probably be replaced if there is evidence of heating of the connections.

Also check the connections of the pigtail from the stove.

Baking element


oh bleep, right? well, if you're lucky this will get you going again. 1. disconnect power to range. 2. remove back metal cover just above range power cord (usually 5 quarter inch hex screws) 3. look for burnt off wire leading to/from bake element. If yes, 4. strip ends of broken wire and splice with ceramic wire nut if no 4. bad news. replace ERC (electronic range control) you fried something on the board. It's got the clock display and all the electronics behind it.
