SOURCE: Dual cooking zone burner not working

Okay...what you have is a dual element with the 6 inch coil burned out. Yes, this is repairable, but unfortunately, since this is a dual element, it is sold as one assembly. The part number for a replacement is WB30T10044, and you can find it at repairclinic.com for about $90 (repairclinic item number 824238). I know it isn't cheap, but it beats having to pay for a service call, or buying a new appliance.

If you wish to repair this yourself, you can do so by following these steps:

1. UNPLUG the range before servicing. There are dangerous voltages still present even with burners turned off.
2. There are a few screws located under the front edge of the cook top. You will need to open the oven door to see them. Remove these screws and the top should lift up. If the range is not equipped with any kind of hinge supports, the top will have to be propped up.
3.On some ranges, there is a disconnect plug for the surface element wiring harness. If you have this feature, unplug the wire harness from the connector and follow these steps:

a. Unplug the cook top and leave the elements in place.
b. Place the whole cook top assembly face-down on a soft surface (like some old towels, or a blanket).
c. Remove the affected surface element. Take note of the numbered positions where the mounting screws are located and locations of the wires. You may want to write down the numbered positions and the wire color codes. HINT: A good digital camera can save you time if you have one. You will need to install the new element in the same manner.
d. Install new element (upside down). Handle the surface elements with care. They are very fragile. Care also must be taken not to handle the element coils or ceramic material. Try to handle from the underside of the element only. Oil from your hands can cause damage to the element and/or premature failure.
e. Re-install the cook top back on the range and you are DONE.

NOTE: If your range does NOT have a disconnect plug on the wiring harness you will need to perform the repairs with the cooktop propped up, and install the surface element assembly from underneath. A helpful hint: Use some duct tape to hold the element secure until you have it screwed back into place. Don't forget to remove the duct tape when completed. Once completed, lower the cook top and secure with screws.

I hope you find this information helpful. Let me know if you have require additional assistance.

SOURCE: Re: GE Electric Range JBP67BD1WH Baking Element Problem

Before you replace the range, I'd try replacing the oven temp sensor (part number WB21T10007 ) which is rather inexpensive. If I were able to get my hands on your range I'd first test to see if the control is sending 240 volts to the bake element. We know there is 240 to the range because the burners and broiler work, but is the control sending the full 240 to the bake element ? The only way for you to know this is to use a meter and test the voltage across the terminals of the bake element when in bake. Of course you should also test the bake element with power off and at least one terminal disconnected to see if you have about 20 ohms resistance across the terminals and no resistance from a terminal to the frame of the range. If not, you may need a new bake element (part number
WB44T10010 )
Let me know if I can be of further assistance. Thanks for using fixya.
If this helps, a fixya rating would be appreciated. Thanks.

SOURCE: Front right (6IN) radiant element went bad

Congrats on your troubleshooting efforts. The element you speak of is called a "dual element". Unfortunately, you can only purchase it as an entire assembly. This is a fairly simple repair that you should be able to perform yourself. Just follow these steps:

First, please review your Warranty Information. Most warranties DO NOT cover cosmetics. That is, if your cooktop paint starts to wear off, most manufacturers will not replace it. Warranties also DO NOT cover accidents such as dropping something on the top and breaking it. Warranties DO cover blistering, warping and heat related breakage (if you are using the recommended cookware). This is why it is important to follow all the manufacturer's use and care instructions that come with your range. I know this does not include ALL manufacturers, but this is true with most.

I would recommend you have someone assist as this should be a two-person repair job. Please read through the instructions carefully before starting the repairs, and follow any safety recommendations.

1. UNPLUG the range before servicing. There are dangerous voltages still present even with elements turned off.

2. There are a few screws located under the front edge of the cook top. You will need to open the oven door to see them. Remove these screws and the top should lift up. If the range is not equipped with any kind of hinge supports, the top will have to be propped up.

3. On some ranges, there is a disconnect plug for the surface element wiring harness. If you have this feature, you can unplug the entire top panel and move it to flat surface to work on it.
If not, you will have to prop the top panel up.
NOTE: If moving the cooktop to another work surface, place the whole cook top assembly face-down on a soft surface (like some old towels, or a blanket).

4. Remove the defective surface element by disconnecting the terminal plug wires. Make sure you label them.

5. Next, locate the two tabs that hold the element in place. Take note of the numbers that the tabs are inserted into. These are alignment marks and you will need to install the new element in the same manner. Take a pair of pliers and slightly bend these tabs by turning them so you can remove the element. NOTE: You may have to remove the bracket guard that holds the element in place. If so, leave the bracket face down when you remove the screws. This leaves the existing good element from being moved around and reduces the risk of damaging it. Lift the bracket up slightly,and slide the defective element out.

6. Remove the old element and discard. Install the new element making sure you handle with care. They are very fragile. Care also must be taken not to handle the element coils or ceramic material. Try to handle from the underside of the element only. Oil from your hands can cause damage to the element and/or premature failure. NOTE: Ensure you use the same alignment marks.

7. With the element installed, lock the tabs in place and install the wire connectors. Reinstall the screws on the bracket guard.

8. Lower the cook top back into place and secure with screws.

If you have questions along the way, please let me know. I hope this helps you.

PS You may experience a bit of smoking when you turn on the new element for the first time. This is normal.

Possible element faulty or switch unless you have a multimeter and a good working knowledge of electricity be very careful. Remove the two connections on the element and set the multimeter to diode testing or resistance and test across the element if you get a zero reading the element has blown, if you get a positive reading look at the switch.
